Hi there. It's October, and the blog is nearly one year old, or new, or 'of age', and I'd just like to say thank you to anyone and everyone who has taken the trouble to read it

Last month was a quiet one for me as far as blogging goes. I was snowed under with a few other things and couldn't devote the usual amount of time to this. With any luck, this month should be a bit different

I've decided to kick off this month with a couple of 'dates for your diary' type announcements. Firstly, the next installment of the AAF is very nearly upon us. Since its inception this event has been growing in popularity and next week's show promises to be a good one, with more retailers and site owners attending and spread over two days rather than one, giving more people the opportunity to see what it has to offer

As you can see from the flyer, the show looks like it's going to be well attended so get in quick and book your tickets before they all go!

The second thing I wanted to draw your attention to is the 21st Birmingham Model and Toy Soldier Show which is taking place on Sunday 23rd October at The Clarendon Suite, 2 Stirling Road, Edgbaston, Birmingham, B16 9SB

You don't need to book or pre-order tickets, doors open to the public at 10.30am and it will cost you just £4 to enter. There will be approximately 90 traders there selling everything from hollow-cast, lead, tinplate, pewter, composition and plastic figures as well as all manner of kits, diorama pieces, books etc. etc.

More information about the show can be obtained from the organiser, David McKenna, who can be reached via email at or by phone on 0121 628 1397

Happy hunting!
