There is a few Goldfish sellers there every year. Sometimes Tommy shows up :) thats where I got my Myng.

There are some Vendors there to selling trinkets. Also they have a Koi show off and a Goldfish showing. Last year there was an Auction there, I got a Koi painting last year there.

Its alot of fun :thumb: I would save some money :thumb:

I've gone a couple times and it is FUN! Bring your camera cause they let you take pix of the show fish and vendors are ok with it too, so far. They have a nice selection of souvenirs/gifts that are reasonably priced. And they always have a different logo print t-shirt each year of a koi and gf that are just beautiful.

If the Japanese import goes well, I don't sell out before the end of July and they still have a space I'll do a booth this year.

Oh this is neat. I didn't know we had this. Do you know what I would need to do to auction off my babies there?

You usually have to contact the club about being a vender. It might not be worth it because you have to consider fees and supplies.

I've been a vendor at the show twice. As for the auction I don't know if you need to be a club member or just pay a fee. Most likely the latter. The bidders are very picky.

I have been to this show twice in the past few years and it and Koko's site are responsible for my new interest in goldfish.The fish are gorgeous and the koi sales seem really good.I did not see goldfish for sale but I wasn't looking either.If anyone has any interest in saying hello at the show that might be cool.I'll be there.

The goldfish normally are to the right and in the back corner up the stairs. Last year Tommy was there. He was the only live goldfish vendor there. :(

I hope there are more there this year. The economy was tough last year and seems to be better this year so maybe theyll be more , here's to hoping :)
