We Got the Fishing Nets Ready and we caught Ricco Browning the last Original Universal Monster! Our Celebrity Guest of Honor, at the next Retr-O-Rama Pop Culture Collectibles Show returning to Jacksonville on Sunday, August 10, 2014!

This is an old school, in person collectibles show with vendors who deal exclusively in vintage pop culture items. We try to make these shows fun and inexpensive so the whole family can come out and have a fun time. You will find quality toys, dolls, comic books, posters, and movie memorabilia all for sale in one room where you can view potential purchases first hand and ask questions rather than guessing at mail order Internet transactions. These knowledgeable vendors also buy vintage pieces and can help you identify items if needed.

This show is sponsored by Retrorama Collectibles and will be held at the Ramada Inn Conference Center in Mandarin located at 3130 Hartley Road, Jacksonville, FL 32257. This is right off of San Jose Blvd. and close to the I-295 exit for San Jose. Show hours are 10 AM to 4:00 PM.Early Bird Preview starts at 9:00 AM

Parking is free and advance adult general admission is $5.00 that’s 50% off through July 1st, 2014, at which time it will increase back to its regular of $10.00 per adult admission, children 12 and under are free with adult paid admission or $2.00. Please check out local businesses for our show informational flyer. Get the Weekend Package which includes a film screening of Revenge of the Creature with Ricou Browning in attendence and Early Bird Preview admission.

After the success of our previous shows, we have increased our size to the largest contiguous space the hotel has to offer over 8,000 square feet and have vendors lined up from all over Florida. Vendor tables are still available on a first come, first serve basis. Please E-mail dtuchmann@jaxretrorama.com for a copy of our vendor contract.

If you are a fan of shows like American Pickers, Storage Wars, Toy Hunter, Hollywood Treasures, Auction Hunters, or Comic Book Men then you won’t want to miss this rare opportunity to attend a true Pop Culture Collectibles show in North Florida. You will have a chance to meet knowledgeable dealers and buy, sell, trade, and browse quality vintage collectibles all in one in-door air conditioned space, rain or shine. Bring in your own items to have them identified, appraised, and even purchased by the vendors at this show with no faceless third party hassles!

Don’t miss this wonderful opportunity to revisit some of the great pop culture icons of the 50′s, 60′s, 70′s and even a few 80′s and relive a little bit of every Baby Boomer’s childhood. If you remember Barbie, G.I. Joe, The Beatles, Mego, Hot Wheels, Star Wars or even He-Man then this is the show for you. If you collect movie posters, film, toys, Disneyana, records or any other vintage memorabilia then you won’t want to miss this rare chance in Jacksonville to add quality items to your collection.
