“Our vendors are super excited to finally have a live collectors show again,” said Rose Nakamura, spokesperson for the Hawaii Collectors Expo. “Our last show was in February 2020. I’m sure our vendors’ garages and storage lockers are overflowing since there has not been a show in two years.”
Also joining the expo this year is Kawaii Kon’s Anime Swap Meet.
“They have been working with us since 2014, and this year will be by far the most participants in the Anime Swap Meet that we have ever had,” Nakamura said. “All of our vendor and Anime Swap Meet spaces are already sold out. This will be a full show!”
