I cant work out how to put them in a line, it keeps telling me that the file is too big.
Matchbox cars, loads of these stalls.

I particularly liked this BMW parked out front.
There were loads of people taking pictures of it, never seen one before.

That's a nice little car but I've a feeling I would quickly get cramp in it!

I think the maximum file size allowed PER POST is 192KB. So to get 2 pictures in per post, the pics have to be no more than 96KB each on average.

It's telling me the uploader is full, I had a few more of this little BMW, it was a wee ripper.
Not sure what year it was, didnt have a rego label as such, it was registered for collectable and car club purposes only.

About those Beanie Kids, every month they release six themed bears, for example one i can recall was "Donald" the cricket bear and another twin pack to coincide with the recent royal wedding. Each stockits gets between 30 and 60 of each one depending on the volume they sell and there are hundreds of stockists in Aus and NZ. When you enter the fair you pay $15 for a family ticket and they have 1000 envelopes, 200 hundred of them containing a redemption card for the limited "Jacko the Stockade Bear" and the other 800 you enter into a draw to win one the same and if you win that one, he is a mutation and has gold feet or something like that, he sells for up to $1000. Each redemption of each one cost you $10 each. Anyway, it costs $15 for family entry, we had the kids with us so each member gets an envelope. We went in and out five times and paid the $15 each time and we got eight of them, then we hung out inside seeing people open them and they werent interested in them so mostly left it laying around or gave it to someone, so we got a further five.
We came home and listed them on Ebay for buy it now $120 and within five minutes, she had already sold the first one and he pad straight away too.
I hope we have that sort of luck with all of them, see what happens i suppose. This is all for Lek, not me, the kids get $100 each too so they are happy.

What kind of prices were being asked for the Meccano lorry and train?

I am so sorry guys, I didnt ask about price but i am sure it would have been a lot.
I just wanted to get a few pics of things you guys would remember, thought Mecano, Matchbox and Star Wars would be among them.
The BMW small car I will post again when allowed.

I used to go to these types of events (antiques & collectables they called them) in UK a lot. All the rage they were - loads on every weekend all over the country. I blame that "Bargain Hunt" TV prog.

My parents are addicted to these kind of events. They go to them regularly - and they watch 3 or 4 antique/collectable TV shows a week!

Yeh, Cash in the Attic, Antiques Roadshow etc etc - it's the new gardening/DIY. Actually I rather like Bargain Hunt - it is shown here in Dubai.
