Default Brantford Show and Auction this Saturday!!!!

Yes we are off to another great Show/Auction in Brantford on Sat April 6th.
Its just down the road from the Tropical Fish Room Store on Grand River Ave in Brantford at the Community Centre there.

Easy to find just take 403 from Hamilton to #24 North King George Rd exit, turn left and stay on King George Rd/24 take it all the way down, it becomes St Paul's Ave and it will intersect with Brant Ave, but stay on St Paul's ave and it will deadend on Grand River Ave, turn right and go down to Morrell St.

TB Costain-SC Johnson Community Centre is at #16 Morrell St.

Anybody have any idea how late you can be as a vendor? I was thinking of bringing a few things to the auction but I won't be able to make it till after lunch. Is this to late to put stuff out on the tables?

Contact the Brant aquarium society and ask them, I think you would be able to start putting items on the remaining tables.

Yes I do believe although they want everyone there early so there's enough items to sell, they do accept late comers....Kai from GTA was always late and he still go to sell his stuff! It usually runs to around 4-ish anyways because they have the fish to judge at the show and that takes quite a while.

So all in all a good day...shorter than most auctions by at least a couple of hours. Prices all over the place, some things sold for ridiculously low prices, while others sold for prices way above what is normal.

Show was well attended.
I won 1st and 3rd with my male Bettas, 2nd and 3rd with my female Bettas
and Best Egglayer with my lovely yellow/blue OVHM male Betta!

Nice prize money too!

Ya all need to get into Bettas! LOL.

It was a good day. I did well in the show ended up taking high aggregate. Picked up a spawning pair of badis badis as well. They are a stunning little fish.

I came down briefly to the show just to experience one. I had hoped to see your bettas but they were still judging when I left.

I warned you and Catherin that one day I'm gonna give you ladies some competition. Maybe in the summer I'll look into getting a fancy Betta or two.

The Brant show and auction went very well. On the average the prices were fairly good. All my 7 entries placed in the show as well as taking best in show with my Nezzie Sword and best livebearer with my Hi Fin Platy Variatus.
