"A Great Success"
The South Florida Toy Soldier Club hosted it's annual toy soldier sale the first weekend in February. There was something for everyone! Saturday morning, Sloan's Auction House delighted dealers
and collectors with an auction of over 300 lots of Britains, Lucotte's, Alymers, Mignot's and various
other toy soldier makers. The room was filled with anxious bidders and all lots were sold at reasonable
prices. Afterwards, the hotel rooms were opened again by dealers for browsing.
Saturday night, it was off to fabulous Worth Avenue in Palm Beach to a cocktail party hosted by Grand Armee. Butlers in tuxedos roamed around the magnificent courtyard serving wonderful hot and cold
hors d'oeuvres, wines and beverages. The Muir brothers glamorous shop was opened for the evening.
The store abounds with toy soldiers, armour, uniforms and just about anything a toy soldier hobbyist could
As if that wasn't enough, Sunday's show had the largest attendance in the last 7 years. Over 600 paying enthusiasts clamored through the doors to roam past over 114 tables to the dealers
delight. Many of the dealers signed up for the next show being held February 3rd, 2002 at the Holiday Inn, West Palm Beach, Florida. We would like to thank all the dealers who attended for their continuing support. Based on the feedback we received, we know we will see all of you next year. And those who didn't make it, We hope to see you at next years show. The show has been growing every year in size and scope.
