BINGHAMTON, N.Y. – Do you yearn for an old-fashioned toy show brimming with great toys, trains and dolls, and friendly dealers who love to chat and share their knowledge? Just such an event will take place this Saturday, Feb. 18, in Binghamton, New York. The Vintage Toys, Trains & Collectible Show, a fundraiser for the local humane society, has grown into a full and very popular event featuring vintage toys, trains, dolls, plastic models, die-cast automotive toys and much more. It will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the American Legion Post 1645 Hall, 177 Robinson Street in Binghamton.

This show has all the elements toy collectors remember from the regional shows of the early 1990s. There’s free parking, lots of delicious food, a bake sale, and a low, low admission price of only $3. Children under 12 are free if accompanied by an adult.

Not only has this show developed the reputation of being a great place to discover very desirable toys pulled from the attics and closets of multi-generational homes in New York’s southernmost tier, but also from residences in nearby Pennsylvania and western Massachusetts. Best of all, the show’s profits will help homeless animals who are cared for by The Humane Society of Binghamton.
