    OK, here I go working against myself again, but I have to get the word out about the annual PHSNE auction on February 6, at the Americal Center in Wakefield, MA, just a small way off Rt 95 (128, for those of us who go back a bit.) It's a pretty casual affair, with the goods on display starting at noon and the actual auction commencing at 1. The dollar table, source of some of the best buys I've found in years, begins at 11. No membership needed to come by, bid and make a killing.

    PHSNE is a great organization, keeping the flame alive in traditional photography and photo history for lots of us, but the real reason to come to this thing is the bargains! Whatever your passion, there is a good chance you'll find something, and somebody, that will stoke it at the auction.

    There. Now that I've been a good boy and invited everybody to share, I want to ask you all to stay away... more good stuff for me!

    Well you are safe from me stealing any good buys from you Whitey as one way or another I will be taking care of duties for the Ward - Aller - Prifti exhibit at the VPC. Damn, there is always a conflict of schedule for these PHSNE events! :mad:
    Oh well, have fun and I expect to see some neat toys at the next gathering! :D

    Thanks, Gary. I screwed up. (Bad boy, whitey... you should know you can't mislead people that way! there will be enough good stuff to go around.) 8>o

    And the PHSNE calendar link seems to be down as well. Here's a link to their directions page.

    I fixed the thread title so we won't have any confusion on the date of this auction.

    Don't forget hat you can also sell stuff at this auction--you don't need to be a PHSNE member. Bring you stuff for sale at 11 am and then buy somebody else's stuff (at least that's how it works for me)
