On the west coast Bossa Productions organizes a series of shows in Burnaby (just outside of Vancouver) and also in Edmonton and Calgary. I am sure there are other examples around the country as well but not many.
Here in Newfoundland there are no longer regular shows except for a couple of tables at the weekly flea market. It has made me contemplate the idea of organizing a semi-regular collectables show. I think it will be necessary to expand the audience a little and include other "collectables" including coins, stamps, militaria etc.
I have started to rough out a business plan - I don't really care to make a ton of money but it best not be a money loser. Lots of things to think about - location, cost of venue, advertising, table fees, admission fees, table fees for the dealers, concessions and the list goes on and on. It is not something I want to rush into - I will update my exploits along these lines in this blog in the weeks to come. Till next time.
