We met Brian Kossin and his daughter, Dana, at the Southeast Game Exchange two weeks ago. The two were tag teaming, helping customers interested in purchasing collectibles they had for sale and promoting a brand new event called the Retro-Toy Con.
The convention, which is being sponsored by the Toy Federation and organized by Mr. Kossin, will be a 2-day gathering of vintage toy retailers from around the country and special guests from well-known comic, cartoon, and live action TV series.
For anyone interested in going, here’s what you need to know.
