Vintage Computer Festival Midwest 14

I attended my first VCF ever September 14 and 15th near Chicago! I was proud to be part of “coco row”. This was an awesome show and I plan to attend next year. Alot of the Cocotalk folks were there and we all had a great time. Even got an awsome deal on an “extra clean” Coco3.

Some magnifier silliness at my booth



Three rooms of exhibitors wasn’t enough they had folks set up in the hallway!

Here is the “Extra clean” coco 3 I picked up for $10 with a few other coco items that the seller said were under some C64 items he bought. For some reason it has what appears to be soap powder it it. I took these pictures before I attempted to dump out the majority of the powder. The power switch is was also broken and someone installed a key switch. Hopefully I can restore it.
