"Random Stuffing Ingredients"
or "How I became a Pirate", (hockey collecting)

Well, back to the old trouble of a nearly bare tradelist...and not sure what to do about that, if anything. unsure.gif

I'm considering going to an on demand type of setup, where shortly before a show I post up wantlists. Then if someone has something from that wantlist they list things they are interested in...I attempt to pick those up at the show.

I wonder how well it will work tho? Sometimes the show is great on hockey, other times I buy a few singles and go home unfulfilled...would it be any better with a wider variety to look for?

Or would I just end up with money spent on a bunch of stuff I don't collect when I present my list of finds and hear, "nothing on your list I can use"...

I'm not going to shell out big for stuff either way, since what I'm looking for is stuff on the sub $20bv end for almost everything...nonetheless trying to find something to keep the ship sailing.

Wish I had some other shows to compare with...maybe I'll take a drive up to Calgary this summer...or maybe not, since I got word they are hit or miss on 90's stuff sad.gif
