Today I attended my first toy fair. It was a small but welcoming fair that took place in Roma Hotel in Lisbon, Portugal.
My visit was quicker than I would like, but time was of the essence for this is a busy weekend. However I loved my time there. Most vendors were very nice and I got to check out many old toys.
Most vendors sold miniature and vintage cars. Which is cool, but not really my thing. Still I enjoyed browsing through them. There were enough figurines to keep me happy. Sadly very few old Star Wars figurines that I was hoping to find.
