Great Times at the Chicago Toy Soldier Show 2016

Sep 27th 2016

Late Monday night, we drove back into Lincoln from the Chicago Toy Soldier Show. Although, Trains and Toy Soldiers has been attending the Chicago Toy Soldier Show for years, this year was the first time we offered toy soldiers from our inventory to the public. The demand for our inventory was overwhelming. We are seriously considering upgrading to a larger room next year and will definitely be getting an additional table for Sunday. The demand for all our Toy Soldiers and Military Miniatures was intense, but the interest from our fellow collectors who wanted our plastic toy soldiers by Conte Collectibles was surreal. Conte Collectible shipped us a special order for the show, and we literally could not get the boxes opened fast enough to fill all our orders. If you did not get the Conte Collectibles Plastic Toy Soldier you wanted, please email or call Trains and Toy Soldiers with your request. We will be placing a new order for another shipment soon. While we love helping Toy Soldier collectors find they item we they have been searching for, the best part of Chicago Toy Soldier Show was meeting and talking with the other collectors and the world class toy soldier craftsman. I personally had a brief conversation with Ken Olsen, the President of WBritain, and he told me that WBritain is planning some extraordinary new releases for next year. The great times with great friends, both new and old, are far too numerous to be listed here, but all in all it was definitely a unforgettable time. Trains and Toy Soldiers will make several exciting announcements over the next several weeks about the products in our store. Please check our blog often so you do not miss out on the latest news.
