First time in Toledo?? Hmmm....
  • Bring running shoes. You will be BOLTING from booth to booth
  • Bring lots of tissue to wipe your drool
  • If you are bringing a camera, bring extra batteries. You will be taking a lot of pictures!
  • Bring extra money (or is it Dont bring too much money??...LOL). There will be lots of goodies and a lot of bargains there and you will have to control yourself....
  • Dont forget to check out the swap area upstairs

I think you will like it!!!

Re: 1st time in toledo

Yeh, you are gonna be like a little kid in a candy shop!!!!

Lots and lots of eye candy..... all willing to take your money.

Three of us going together to scoop up as much as our money allows, and since it is a 'swap meet', usually no problems at the border.

Re: 1st time in toledo

I'll be there. Unfortunately, will only have a few hours on Sat until 3 as I need to leave to catch a flight.

Just spent the week at Con-Expo in Vegas and that is the biggest show I have ever been to. Was there for 4 days and only saw about 1/3. IT WAS WORK!

Toledo should be fun!

Re: 1st time in toledo

anything that you can get a receipt for get one. The border guards can be a pain if you don't have them.

Re: 1st time in toledo

I'll there as well. You'll know who i am. I'll be the one with the awe struck look in my eyes. If anyone is a fan of MASH TV show they will remember 5 episodes referenceing to "PACO'S" hot dogs. There only a block from the Seagate center. Thats where I'll be for lunch.. Wahoo.
