This Sunday, Fourth of July (2010 version), will find me in Newark, Delaware at the Flea Market/Collectibles Show in the parking lot of Captain Blue Hen Comics at 204 E. Main Street.
I’ll have lots of comics priced from 25 cents to one dollar,including some current issues. I’ve also put together some sets and story arcs to sell complete at bargain prices. There should also be some miscellaneous games, DVDs, books, etc. at garage sale prices.
There won’t be quite as many comics and collectible vendors as last year since the neighbor Whole Foods Market is also holding their monthly Farmers Market on the same day. It just means a bigger crowd, and twice as much fun - - including fresh fruits and vegetables, food vendors, and some live musical entertainment.
This year, I’ll be joined by another BC Refugee, Gary Z., who’ll be merchandising his massive collection (actually, the doubles that he doesn’t mind parting with) of super hero action figures and accessories. You’ll find us in Spaces #1 and #2, right next to the mysterious yet friendly “Toy Man” (not the Superman foe, just a guy with lots of toys). Please come out, enjoy some sun and fun, and meet us. The show runs from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m., leaving plenty of time to make it to the evening fireworks display back in your neighborhood.
You’ve read my previous praise and favorable comments for Captain Blue Hen Comics, my favorite local source for books. Come on down and see for yourself what it’s all about. The store will be open from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. and also offering one-day specials to go along with the Flea Market/Collectibles show.
