Toy Soldiers

An email came in this morning from a lady in Chicago’s northwest suburbs requesting information as to where she could sell her 75 (or so) Barclay toy soldiers.


If you’re familiar with the toy soldier community, you know that she’s in luck – one of the largest toy soldier shows in the country is held each September in Chicago’s northwest suburbs.


Though I’ve yet to attend myself (it’s on my travel “wish list” for sure), I’ve heard glowing reports about this show. Here is this year’s information:
