    Dennis:

    Thanks for the heads up, but I think you have the date wrong in your original post.

    I believe that this is scheduled for Sunday April 26 (not Saturday the 25th).

    I might just see you there

    Matt

    OH ya !! I've got it jotted down on my calender as the 26th. Wasn't wearing my glasses & the 5 & 6 are too close together anyway. That's one of the reasons I put in an extra post so that people can look it up themselves (and I can sleep better @ nights) Thanks for pointing that out. I'm going to be there early. See you there

    OK, so did anybody score any deals?

    I saw a guy walk by with what looked like 3 or 4 Grafmatic (4x5) holders...I didn't mug him as I was talking to a chum.

    I bought a Bromoil book for $5. Attendance seemed up this year (or at least when around 10:30 it was quite crowded.)

    A couple .

    A nice little Ventura 66 deluxe folder for $25.00. The bellows doesn't appear to leak any light.

    Also a 6x9 negative holder for my new Omega enlarger at much less than the $70 I've been seeing around.

    A cheap camera bag that looks to be a better fit for my Mamiya 645 "travelling" kit.

    A really cheap lens with a Contax/Yashica mount, to enable me to test the Contax 167MT SLR body that I got earlier in the week with a camera case full of other great stuff from the local thrift store for less than $10.00 (I know, that should be in the other thread).

    And a replacement lens cap for $1.00.

    Actually, I came out ahead - I sold some stuff through the consignment table, and made more money than I spent.

    Matt

    P.S. I looked for Dennis, but didn't see him. I could have looked for you to Dave, but as we've never actually met, I wouldn't have known it if I found you.

    I found the selection disappointing this year and the prices really off market value. I agree that there were more people than last year.

    Yes. Something very unfortunately happened to me on Saturday morning so I couldn't make it. Just my luck there probably was a lens there that I really could have used. With a price tag I could afford. Sometimes it seems if I didn't have BAD luck I wouldn't have any luck at all.

    We should have name tags, didn't see any of you.

    I've been very selective with my purchases lately, instead of just buying everything I see. This year I was looking for good, RF folders and purchased a Mamiya-6 folder 6x6. I was eyeing that Pearl (Konishura) 645 folder but it had a cracked front viewfinder element. There was also a good SuperIkonta "C" 6x9 on the far wall.

    For a while, it seemed very crowded

    I scored one Grafmatic holder. It is nice to look at them before buying. Not a great price but at least I know it operates. The show does not seem to be geared for folks with American dollars to spend. A currency exchange on site would have encouraged more purchases. Or at least being able to use a credit card would have helped. I left around 1:30 and by then a lot of the tables were vacant; however, early on it was packed. I was surprised at the large number of young people in the crowd. No only that, but they seemed to know what they were looking for. I thought it was odd that there was little digital equipment for sale. I will be back next year with Loonies in hand.
