Upcoming Events

Hello all,

I am going to try to write in here more often - you should see a post a couple times a week at least.  There is always a lot going on and sometimes the blog falls to the bottom of the list.  But I think you guys like getting info and I will try to post it here first.

Anyway - some events that are coming up... we have a busy couple of months:

- Sept 21-24, 2011 - Indianapolis, IN - National O-Scale Convention - DHS has a table there - say hello to Bill in Indianapolis.  Here is a link:  Natl O-Scale Convention Website

- Sept 30- Oct 2, 2011 - Cleveland, OH - Piston and Power Show - 2nd annual event and we have a 20x30 booth showing off the newest Don Campbell Models.  Stop in and see the world's largest 1/3 scale Cat D11 Bulldozer and the largest 1/4 scale diesel locomotive - all in metal!  Here is a link:  Piston and Power Show Link

- October 13-15, 2011 - York, PA - Train Collectors Association Fall Meet - (TCA Members Only).  We will be in the Orange Hall as usual!  Here is a link:  TCA York Fall Meet

- October 22, 2011 - Berea, OH - DHS Fall Auction.  This auction will feature many pieces from the Kevin Anderson Collection #2 and will be held at the DHS World Headquarters.  Auction List will be posted this week!  Watch the DHS website for details:  DHS Homepage

Of course, we have DOTD going on through the end of September - featuring all Sword Models this time!  Make sure to look at the homepage daily!

Yes - Deal Of The Day is BACK with a new twist. We are planning for an ALL SWORD MODEL DOTD for September. Plus the ability to get FREE SHIPPING!

There was a lot of whining the last time we did this - mostly because people did not think the items were "interesting" enough. Also, Sword Models do get the most attention when we run this promotion, so we decided to go for it. I hope you can take advantage of some of the great prices to come up this month. You will NEVER see the prices this low - and you have to catch them on the right day.

You should take note of the fine print - we are offering a bonus program if you purchase a New Sword Model (That includes the HET, the Etynre and the Flatbed Models), along with your DOTD purchase, you will get FREE SHIPPING for that order.

Now to give you a heads up - you should all know that the three Sword Models we are offering for the FREE SHIPPING will NOT be listed on the DOTD this month. That would just be rude. So you can safely order a regular priced HET, Flatbed or Etynre and get the FREE SHIPPING without worrying that you may get a better deal on them later!

So make sure to login and check the special offer each and every day in September - earlier is better as some items may sell out before the end of the day!
