I don't know about the rest of you but I was fairly busy. The big sellers for me were coloured Olympus Trips and odd collectibles of moderate value. I was there to promote the new business and find good stock rather than sell, sell, sell but I did manage to lose my voice by lunchtime! 

I did make one decision - I had intended to attend the show and close the store just on this one occasion but I concluded that it makes sense to be there for all future shows. My best customers are all there anyway! Again, thanks to Andy K for finding me some good stuff - and to the puzzled looking gentleman who approached and asked if I'd like to buy a plastic 35mm compact (new in box). Belonged to his father (deceased). Er no. How about some other stuff in the car? - there's a Hasselblad in there. Er YES!
