The show was Apr 9-10 at the West Oaks Fellowship Hall located off 14440 Richmond (1block east of hwy 6 which intersects Interstates 10). Houston,TX 77082.

I setup at the show with both graded coins and currency. 40 dealers were present. Adm for the public was $3 and parking was free. The show was well run - excellent and setup very smooth.

Attendance was really strong. Sales were probably double or more for me based on past averages. Sales were successful for me both coins and currency. Buying wise there was nothing I wanted offered me from the public. I did buy some material from a wholesaler setup at the show .

There was a snack bar plus free coffee and doughnuts for dealers. Friday dealers were treated with free pizza. Sat I participated in the $5 whataburger deal - burger, drink, chips, cookie delivered to my table by show staff.

I had a great time buying / selling plus seeing what other dealers had in relation to types of inventories.

    I had the ANACS table there- it was by far the busiest that show has ever been for us.

    Sounds great!

    BTW, I like my Whataburger with jalapeños on it. Can't beat that!

    Thanks for the report...It sounds as if the show reflected the long 'no shows' period.... People really want to get back out and see some coins.... Time for this entire episode to end. Cheers, RickO
