The show offers more vintage paperbacks in one place for one day than anywhere else in the world.
There are so many paperbacks, that no one is able to see them all in one day. Even with a crowd of other collectors around, it is possible to be the first person to discover a hidden gem late in the afternoon.
Each year there are great finds reported by folks who attend the show.
This year, you could be the person telling the story.
Come to the show early for table-top shopping, then spend the rest of the day diving into the boxes under the tables.
Come join the treasure hunt.
Circle the date.
Searching thrift stores, flea markets, yard sales and the internet can find a few wins, but their stock is nothing in comparison to the number of books available at this show.
Dealers at the show have been spending the year looking in those other places and are bringing their findings to this show to offer them out.
Get off the internet. Garage sale later. Come to the paperback show. It's an amazing event that happns once a year.
Come see the main event.
It's not just vintage paperbacks.
If you collect hardback Science Fiction and Mystery; if you like to search out early Pulps; if you want to get Original Illustration Art, this show is for you.
Dealers offer visually interesting items beyond vintage paperbacks. It's a hobby about the eye appeal of the packaging for mass market items during the late 20th Century.
Consider that many of the dealers are paperback collectors who do not sell at other shows. Their stock of peripheral Pulps and pieces of Original Art are never seen in any other venue. It's fresh stock to look through.
