Setting up this weekend and more than likely next weekend in Portland for some extra National cash.
Come check it out if you are around
Unrelated except I think this show was also at the Totem Lake Mall at times in the past. I just started a new job and drove by Totem Lake for the first time in a while. It is gone! The entire mall is leveled. Not surprising in itself given how poorly it has performed in recent years, just shocked not to see it there.
I guess my perspective is a bit older. I moved to Bothell/Woodinville from Kitsap County in 1998 and that is when I would have been going to the Totem Lake shows. I hit that one numerous times, Factoria only once or twice when the shops were also still open in that area (Lou's across from the Mall) so not sure when they stopped having shows there, but I probably stopped in the early to mid 2000s. I remember the last couple times, the mall was just dead quiet except for the card collectors and the Old Country Buffet lines out the door.
How'd you make out this weekend Sir?
Did you have any Poke-crap to sell? Did it help with floor traffic?
Don't forget to use the FCB Link when buying on eBay!
Kind of sad on a personal level to the see the Totem Lake mall go. I used to go there with my grandparents and eat at the Old Country Buffet. Loved when it happened to fall on the same day as the card show.

How come everyone loves Old Country Buffet? I worked there for a few months as a second
job in the late 90's. The ONLY and I mean ONLY good thing there was the teriyaki wings.
Everything else was terrible. I now work in a food warehouse so I know which places to avoid.
Some places buy powdered eggs and instant hashbrowns. nasty
