|The Fair Booth|
|The vendor hall|
Roomy and I arrived a day early in Chicago this year and took advantage of the time to do some sightseeing downtown with some non-collector friends. We visited the Bean, and also the University of Chicago Oriental Museum (three of us have backgrounds in archaeology) before Roomy and I broke off to attend the Fair.

Saturday we set up the booth and it was rock and roll from there on out. With over 2,000 people in attendance, Roomy was kept busy at the booth and I heartlessly abandoned her to go pony shopping. Saturday night was the pajama party movie night, complete with popcorn and plushies. Sunday was much of the same, but also with volunteering in the games room.
|Day 1 shopping (not including G2 castle)|
|Day 2 shopping (not including little bits)|
|Hasbro inspired custom contest entries|
|View of the hotel - do you think we're in the right place?|
