Charmy’s 2018 Portland PNNA/Baltimore Show Reports and Special Tribute to my Dad

I realize there are a lot of terrible things going on in the world right now, but my own little world was recently shattered and my heart broken because my hero, the man I looked up to most in my entire life, the man who taught me integrity, hard work and respect, the last link to my childhood – my amazing dad – has died. (Ok, my hubby comes in a close second.) My dad who was 97 and one of the last few Pearl Harbor Survivors passed away just…

Charmy’s 2018 PHILLY ANA WORLD’S FAIR OF MONEY SHOW REPORT w/Tons of Pics!

So sorry this report is a later than usual – in addition to watching my grandson which takes a lot of my time, I had some significant travel mishaps that delayed me getting home and just wiped me out mentally and physically. More on that later. Overall, the show was good, not the best show I’ve had for selling, but it was great for buying. Also, it is a fun city to visit and tour, with lots of wonderful and interesting historical sites to see. So grab a cup of…

Charmy’s June 2018 LONG BEACH SHOW REPORT w/lots of Pics!

With summer here, I usually only have one show a month, which leaves more time to spend with my family. Last weekend we were very fortunate to celebrate my dad’s 97th birthday! Many of you have heard me talk about him being in the Navy and a Pearl Harbor survivor, so we are especially proud to still have him with us. With less shows during the summer, I especially look forward to each show I do attend. And the Long Beach show is one of my favorite shows since it…

Charmy’s 2018 CENTRAL STATES COIN SHOW w/lots of Pics!

Happy New Year to Everyone! Sorry for the late report folks! Since I babysit my grandson when I’m not traveling, it takes me quite a bit longer to get things done. But he’s so adorable and I am very grateful that I get to spend so much time with this little guy. Every year I especially look forward to the FUN show. It is so well run and attended, especially since the FUN show folks help subsidize the cost to bus collectors from various clubs around the state. I happened…

Charmy’s February 2018 LONG BEACH COIN SHOW REPORT w/lots of Pics!

I’ve read some of the Long Beach show reports and I have to agree with them – this was one of the busiest and well-attended Long Beach shows in a long time. Thanks to Taryn and Cassi and the rest of the folks who worked hard to put this show together – from the fantastic Central America Ship of Gold, to the amazing Tyrants of the Thames display of “The World’s Most Valuable Private Coin Collection,” and even the Miller/Harrison Morgan Dollar set on display at the PCGS table. This…

Charmy’s 2018 TAMPA FUN SHOW REPORT w/tons of Pics!

Well, it’s been quite a while since I’ve done a show report but I’m back in the saddle again! Since I missed the Baltimore show, I was especially looking forward to buying and selling coins and seeing my friends at the Central States Show. It turned out to be a pretty good show, better for buying than selling, but overall I did a lot of both. I got to the airport Tuesday morning, sailed through TSA and decided to just hang out at my gate and listen to my audio…
