    I'll definitely be there, it's usually a good place to find all those obscure bits and peices that can't be found otherwise (eg unusual filters in oddball sizes, etc). Hoping to find some more used developing trays, and also hoping that I'm not too tempted by anything too expensive! :smile:

    I am looking at getting there early (9am is the kickoff). Last year I bought a Koni-Omega. This year I am looking for either a test strip printer, Bronica Bits, Minolta bits or Jobo Drums.......

    I would say "Make sure you say hi", but the chances of recognising anyone you have never met before is slim!

    We're aiming for mid-morning. Too early and the sellers won't negotiate on price, too late and all the good stuff is gone.

    I keep meaning to buy a Jobo setup but I'm still trying to work out exactly what model etc I'd need.

    Yes, it does make it tricky :wink:

    If you see someone tall in a hat giggling maniacally at a bargain haul of Pentax 6x7 lenses, there's a fair chance that'll be me. Hopefully!

    I managed to grab an 11x14 easel, so I'm quite happy. (I'd been looking for a decent 4-blade easel for a decent price for quite a while now, and this one is the ideal size for my enlarger.) Plus some other small bits and pieces, and most importantly managed to avoid the siren song of some of the more expensive temptations.

    Anyone else grab anything particularly interesting?

    Well, the siren sang a little for me. I ended up getting a Metz 45 CL3 flash for my yet to arrive SQ-Ai. I ummed and ahhed over that one for a while, as I had planned on just using the camera for a while AND then building up the kit....but I couldn't resist..

    I also ended up with half a Minolta 50mm Macro kit (the bit I am missing....the lens!). It came with a reversing ring and a dedicated extension tube. I tried it with the standard 50 F1.4 and it seems to work, so I am happy (for $5).

    I was a little disappointed with the turn out compared to last year, though, but hey, there were some good bits to be seen.
