View Full Version : Should I get a table?

I'm wondering if I should get a table for this year. I haven't done it before. Since I don't have a Micronauts exhibit to haul out and set up this year, I was thinking of doing a sales table instead.

I have a lot of non-Mego toy-related odds and ends I would like to move, like model kits, Star Wars stuff, some Japanese & Transformer things. ALIEN toys. All kinds of odds and ends.

Has anyone had any problems with their stuff when they're not in attendance of their table? I don't want to be shackled to it. But I figured I'd put a sign or whatnot on the table with my name on it, so that when I'm away and someone wants something from it they can find me.

Anyone care to tender advice? Thanks!

For the cost, if you have stuff to move it's a no brainer. I rarely bring any Mego stuff myself. It's usually just things I have obtained over the year that I have no interest in but have come in lots. I've never not made back what the table cost plus some. The first year the table proceeds netted me my CSS Spidey. I did have some decent things that year though.

Berto paid off his table last year before I got in the car to drive there.

I have brought a cheap dollar store table cloth to cover up things when I had a lot of small parts, and would cover up my table for lectures and breaks, but I didn't even bother last year (but I didn't have as much to protect).

I don't think I've sold any Mego stuff at the Meet either.

Ok, I am a little new to the Mogo world, how big is this Mego Meet and how many on average will walk in the door ?? Is this only held once a year? Is this the largest meet this year?

sorry for being a noob but just need some Info.

thanks

This will tell you everything you need to know. And yes, it's once a year in June. If you love Megos and friendship it's the place to be.

And the Toy Museum itself is worth every penny of admission. Simply amazing - and a true 'museum' in every sense of the word with everything arranged and cataloged, explained, and representative of every aspect of the craft and industry of toymaking in North America.

I have a question. I've already paid admission, but now I'm thinking it would be nice to have a table to set up a display of my wares.

Can I upgrade to a dealer or am I too late?

Thanks!
