This will indeed be MY last Chicago Show, but not the last Chicago Show. Kevin has plans to keep the show running.

I may continue to promote the show. If I can do it from Nowhere, Michigan I can do it from Arizona. That's Kevin's decision though.

Unless something changes, the dealer room is sold out and there is a waiting list to get space.

One new dealer with 2 tables and 1 dealer returning after some time away.

If I can just squeeze 1 more table into the room...

Hello All! As Ed mentioned that I will be at the show representing the Foundation. We will be accepting donations of cards- singles, sets and boxes. We are starting a new project in accepting new CDs, DVDs and gift cards.
We started this project to help the teens that the Treasure Chest serves. We will still accept new toys as well, but this will be our main focus. Please check your collections, backstock,overstock, or things that you wish to part with, we would greatly appreciate all donations.
I will have some items up for raffle and silent auction. there will be gifts for those who make a donation to the POTCF as well.
Looking forward to seeing everyone again. Take care and if anyone has any questions or concerns, please email me directly at cecexpo@gmail.com or post here. Thanks Paul
