Hello gang,

Reporting in from York, Pennsylvania... at the Train Collectors Association semi-annual show.  This is a TCA Only show meet and they come to see us in droves!  Check out this photo of our booth (taken quietly as no cameras as allowed inside).

I will be back next weekend for the annual Watch Fob Show in Cleveland.  Can't wait until then!

Here are some pics...

Until next time!

Hello my friends,

Hopefully you enjoyed the surprise Easter specials!  We are settling in for 2 shows this month and getting ready for Open House.   The planning for this event starts in January and by the time the show starts we are all tired of talking about it!    This year we are planning some interesting changes - as it needs some change to keep the excitement up.  We are not ready to announce anything yet - but be assured that the best parts are staying the same and we are just adding some new things.

One thing to remember is that Open House is a real family event.  There are things for the kids to do and also things for your significant others.  We hope to enhance the event this year even more!

Open House is a 12 year tradition and we believe it is the best place to meet and great others who are part of this wonderful hobby.  I really think the tent with tables and chairs (and the free food) is the best part of the weekend!  This has allowed some new people to meet and form lasting friendships as well as providing for a way to talk about all the things that DHS is doing wrong!

Anyway - just a short note to make sure and invite everyone to the Watch Fob Show - see the front page of our site for details.  Also, make this the year you come to visit us at Open House.  I guarantee you will have a great time and we are looking forward to seeing you there!
