Good to hear you will be coming to the IPBA. I have attended most of them the past 10 years. I always have a great time and never fail to find some solids I aboslutely must have! In fact a lot of my best ones were purchased at either the collectors market, showroom or room sales. The room sales will most likely continue but not sanctined by the club for obvious liabilty reasons. There will be no posting board for room nos. at the registration desk but room sellers will be giving you a card with their room number. I will be selling some solids at the collectors market and from the room if my roomate doesn't object. Please look me up when you get there, would love to meet you. Last year in Chicago I met Margret and husband but not until the last day.
I still go to antique stores/shows, flea markets and garage sales. And every now and then I find something good. It's a lot harder now to find something that I don't have. But even if I have it and it's a good deal I buy to resell just because it's fun selling at the convention and I know some other collector might enjoy it.
I can't wait to get together and chat solids with a fellow collector. I am now getting more excited for the upcoming time. I was nervous I'd be the only solid collector in a swarm of bottles! LOL! I have found several other solid perfume collectors will be there also. And yes, I will definitely look you up and browse any solids you have available! I have so many that I am hunting! Ah, the joy of collecting solids!! I have told myself that I will only take so much money and limit myself a little bit, but I am afraid it will be like a kid going into a candy store hungry! LOL!
