Washington DC Pen Show

A veteran is someone who wrote a blank check Made payable to 'The United States of America ' for an amount of 'up to and including my life.'
That is Honor, and there are way too many people in This country who no longer understand it.

I suppose I should be happy that the car has those much-needed new tires and brakes, right? RIGHT?!

very good tips for a 1st timer at a collectibles show..
Glad you found the the Skyline set, and met with friendly folks to help you along with your project..
(poke boxes are a great resource for new ones-not sure about pen shows, but some 'other collectible' show dealers are known to seed a few 'finds' to make such digging rewarding, esp for new ones/juniors)
Please share pics once its up and running:)

sooo...how many at the ink table at 2?
There were about a dozen or so at the height of the "Meet and Greet"!
It was great to see everyone, and put names with faces!
I had to leave about 2:15, because I was only about half way through the show!
(Sorry, did not want to appear rude if I did!)
Operation "Pistachio" was a success!!

Darn. Missed it again, third year in a row, since I started collecting.
But, we are on the road, moving from NY to IL.
Thanks to everyone for sharing their show experiences.
I'm bummed I didn't get to see ya there. Maybe next year, huh?
