For those staying over night at the Hilton Garden Inn (Retro Con’s Official Hotel) I plan to have a parts/trades night for the fans! For those that have never been to one, you basically get a chance to trade and sell your extra toys to fellow fans.
I plan to have some goodies myself for sell!
The time will be set after the before party Friday evening from 1o:15pm to possible 11:15pm, although it may run over a bit. Location will be posted the day of, in the hotel lobby!
Lets make it a fun night of fan fellowship and lots of retro goodies!
Sure you may not find these toys there.. But I’m sure you’ll find something similar! If you haven’t bought your tickets or tables yet, check it out at:
