A special thanks to the Larsons for letting us descend upon their home taking photos/video and giving other Scottie collectors a rare chance to see this extensive collection from Chatsworth, California.

Macy's theme this year was "Believe" and everything was red (photo below). We rode the wooden escalators to the 9th floor, just for the fun of riding wooden escalators again. (Not that any of us are old enough to remember wooden ones!) The windows along Fifth Avenue were amazing, but because of the crowds it was difficult to take photos.
In the photo below, the star was suspended over 5th Avenue. It was lighted at night, but shone in the direct sunlight.

Whether you have just begun collecting or have been collecting Scotties for years -- this convention is for you. If you are still unsure, ask yourself the following two questions. If the answer is yes, this convention is for you and you should plan on attending.
- Look around your house -- do you have more than three Scottie items?
- Do you regularly go hunting for those pointy ears and tails?

At the opening session, you get a packet of information, your badge and then are sent room-hopping to hunt for fabulous treasures.Thursday morning is "Show & Tell." Everyone is invited to share a story and show what wonderful Scottie items they might have found during the year.
Education seminars are spread out throughout the convention and Thursday evening is the auction. Remember, there are no friends at auction. If you want that Scottie item, you need to bid.
If you haven't spent all of your money on room-hopping or the auction, Friday morning is your opportunity to pick-up many old and new Scottie items at the "Scottie Overload Sale."
Of course, the best is saved for last. Saturday is the "Old Displays." Both seasoned collectors and those just beginning bring out their collections to create a display. Most try to display around a theme. All of the displays are amazing and the creativity is astounding.

On Saturday evening, we have a feast and then a Scottie fashion show.
Everything is coordinated by our Cincinnati Scotty Friends. If you are interested in attending, please contact Van Jones at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hope to see you in June!
