Last Sunday (Sept 11) my wife and I went to NUVALI in Santa Rosa to attend the Collector's Fair but I was a bit disappointed. I was expecting to see many participants but unfortunately there are few exhibitors who joined the fair. I drove all the way from Monumento, Caloocan, encountered some traffic in EDSA and took the SLEX tollway just to get there. Maybe my expectation was too high... I have already seen some of the items in Cubao Expo shops which I frequently visit. I was expecting to see more due to the fact that NUVALI spent a lot on advertisements just to promote this event. Since it was the organizer’s first time they still lack the experience in handling such an event. I hope in the future it would be more successful with more exhibitors.
One can find toys, antiques, vintage records, and new collectibles and second hand goodies at the fair. Anyway my visit was not futile because I was able to buy a long playing record that is quite scarce. I met and chat with fellow collectors and discuss our hobbies and new finds at the fair.
For those who were not able to come I am sharing these photos.
