East Aurora, NY / Toy Sale / Fisher Price

After putting it off for 10+ years, I finally made it out to the The Fisher-Price Collectors Club sale in East Aurora, NY on July 26th, which is specifically for Fisher Price toys.

The back story of me putting this off for so long is quite pathetic. I first read about it in 2002. For years, I didn’t have the money to make the trip. In 2007, I lost all of my playsets I had been collecting; in this building I use to live in (long story). I lost the castle, the McDonalds restaurant, both Sesame St houses, a western set, a garage, farm and many many others. A year or so later, I read they closed the toy museum in East Aurora and the Toyfest was done (2008 -2009). Or so I thought. Early this year (2014) I was searching something else on the web and came across the Fisher Price Club website and read the toy show had been resurrected.

Before I left, I forgot to write down WHAT I NEEDED!  I wasn’t trying to complete any little people sets because I don’t have any playsets… yet. I think I was just so excited about just going, I didn’t cross my mind to make a list. After the long anticipated wait, I can say it was definitely worth making the trip. There were 10 or so vendors and they had so many great items. I needed specific magnet letters for a few school days desks I’m trying to complete. I was able to get a complete set and some random ones. I guessed on some and managed to get a few I needed.
