DFC Disneyana Expo Preview - Day 1

Some great items coming to a DFC table near you (well, if you are in the Anaheim/Garden Grove area that is).  Starting with this beautiful 1964/65 New York World's Fair GE Progressland Attraction poster.  Just in time for its 50 anniversary.  Come visit my booth, you can't miss me, this will be hanging up in it :-)

A Few Last Minute Additions

So it looks like we'll have more room for stuff on the trip out to LA for the DFC Disneyana Expo, so we've added a few more items to the ever-expanding haul including:

  • A nearly full run of Belgian Mickey Magazine comics 1-318, missing only 4 issues
  • 7 Dalmatian figures from the very rare Seven China series, which predates the film and Enesco series by 2 years
  • A full service for 8 of Fantasia-inspired Fantasy Silverplate by Oneide, including reproduction pattern catalog with Fantasia art
  • A beautiful Vernon Kilns Milkweed Dance Carafe
  • A full tea set from English company Weetman in pastel colors
  • An exceptionally rare Disney WWII theatrical program from Dec 10, 1941 advocating the US entry to the war.  It should be noted that this was printed prior to Pearl Harbor but for a performance 3 days after Pearl Harbor.  One of only 4 known copies.
  • A near-complete run of Persistence of Vision magazine, missing only issues 8,9
  • An exceptionally rare Canadiana Pottery figure of the Pegasus from Fantasia
  • A rarely seen Donald Duck pirate flag only sold at the Pirates Shop in Disneyland waaaaay back when
  • Very rare Fantasia R70 door panel poster
  • A set of 1951 Walt Disney Character Merchandise Division Catalog pages
And a whole lot more.  I'll try to post photos of some of these items in the coming days.

Prepping for Disneyana Expo at the Disneyana Fan Club

So its been very quiet here at the VDA blog, and I do apologize for that.  But it has been for a good reason.  This year, in addition to the Dayton Show last month, I will be setting up at the biggest Disneyana show in the country, the Disneyana Fan Club Expo in Garden Grove, just down the street from Disneyland.  The show is on July 20th, come on down!  I've been gathering lots of new things to offer, something for everyone I'm sure.  Stay tuned!
