Fans agree, the KISS Expo shopping experience is not what it was in the '80s - But no more! The NJ/NY KISS Expo has fixed that and will be offering an unbelievable spread of KISS merchandise like nothing you have seen in a long time! Think you can find any KISS collectible you want on eBay or the internet? Think again! The upcoming Expo on September 8, 2012 will be featuring dozens and dozens of KISS Dealers from near and far offering up the entire spectrum of KISS Collectibles in every class and every price range! Every dealer will be a KISS dealer - no filler!
First, let me start off by saying I have a huge KISS memorabilia collection, I am a diehard KISS fan, and I have been going to KISS Expos for years.... I attend as many KISS events as possible; concerts, expos, signings, and promotions. At these events, I always end up running into other KISS fans whom I recognize because they follow the band around the same as I. It never fails - I end up getting into discussions about KISS Expos and why they have lost their luster. I always hear these major complaints from all the bigger fans and collectors consistently....
"the shopping at this expo sucks"
"there's too much new stuff"
"and there's not much here to choose from because there's tons of non-KISS stuff"
Does any of this sound familiar? I know I personally have said all of these quotes myself at one time or another. Luckily, as one of the promoters, I personally was in charge of screening the dealers for the 2012 NJ KISS expo and I want to assure everyone -- THE SHOPPING HAS BEEN FIXED !!!!! I personally made sure the dealers who will be at the expo, will be carrying tons of KISS items spanning 1974 thru 2012. Furthermore, the memorabilia will be covering all price points. You will be able to purchase items from $1 to $5000....And to 100% guarantee this, I personally will be selling plenty of 1974-1982 items myself. I want to assure everybody I turned down a lot of potential dealers because of their lack of KISS items -- I simply told them to stay home. These people belong at a record show NOT a KISS EXPO. I personally selected people who want to break apart and sell their KISS collections.
For the first time in a long time, we will have a KISS EXPO with 98% KISS Stuff to purchase. We have 6,500 square feet of space for the expo, and the dealer portion of the space is sold out. I personally can't wait, I'm a collector myself and will be definitely doing some shopping. See everyone there.....
