Hi Guys

As time is flying this year i thought i would start a Winter Memorabilia Thread for the event held on the 20-21 November 2010 at the NEC in Birmingham. - http://www.memorabilia.co.uk/

I really hope to make it down there this year and get to meet up with as many people as possible Smile Therefore im gonna start saving in advance and plan ahead this time!

On a side note we have quite a few lads from the North East on board and i had the pleasure of meeting Andy in person are the Darlington car boot sale last sunday so was thinking is anybody up for the idea of a car share down and getting a travel lodge or similar for the Saturday Night allowing us to go to both days?

Cheers Jay

I have alwayS wanted to go to this event!!!

2 options for me:

I may have found a new focus by then and be back in the game.

Go anyway and meet up with some of you and have a beer or 10 :idea:

If i am not around much can someone message me a few weeks before.

Thanks

Although I'm moving next week, I will be back in Brum for a while in November and attending Memorabilia at the NEC.

I went to the Spring Mem early this year and it was ace imo! There was a fair bit of vintage but most people say the November has more vintage.

Be cool if some of us TIGers could meet up Smile

This will be better than LFCC Jimmy.

Been before and it's a good day.

Not so many random half naked birds dressed up in funky costumes walking about though...so I don't think Dub will come Laughing

Thats what i have heard Stu most people that have been to the Mems say the November one is definately the best Smile

I dont think i get to the london event the following week though.

Im defo going to go to this one and its great to hear quite a few people are planning to make it! Carl if you live round the corner you have no excuse lol!

Jimmy Birmingham is in the middles of the UK its a large city with a big airport buddy if you need some details let me know Smile

Andy i defo think a car share for the north east lads would be a good idea im undecide as to wether to go down for just the saturday or go down on the saturday morning and stay in a travel lodge sat night so i can then attend the sunday as well before travelling back. If a few people are going and staying over it would be awesome to spend the saturday night sinking a few jars together before the sunday show Smile

Hi Guys
Been away for a while and just seen this thread .... count me in for the NEC at least one day probably the saturday.....

Stu are you gonna take Finley as Ethan has been bugging me to go again and also my 16 year old wants to go ...... think thats on account of the amount of semi-naked women at the London comic show lol!

Allthough i have never attended, i may do this year. Can anyone give me an idea of how much vintage there is for sale, i heard rumours last year of there not being too much, although due to me never have gone, i havent got a clue really what to expect. The basic question im asking is, IS IT WORTH IT, i'd hate to travel a long way to find 2 carded klaatu's and a loose ree yee's. I know a few years ago it was loaded with carded, but no idea whats happening these days.
