Fossil Fair Ede 2017 Report

Recommended Posts

Max-fossils

Hi all!

 

As requested by quite a few people, here is the report of the Fossil Fair in Ede, which happened today (Saturday 11th of March 2017).

 

It was a very fun fair with many people, several different organizations were present, a building filled with fossils from all over the world, and tons of amateurs and professionals buzzing around. It was quite busy, but the ambiance was great, or "gezellig" as we would say in Dutch. There were many fossils for sale, some at very low prices, and there was also quite a lot of trading.

 

Here are some pics of the fair:

And this is all I brought back from the fair! I brought a lot back, as I got very spoiled by the people there, which were all very generous!

2) the dino footprint (Regiosaurus). It's in the top-left of the pic, you have to be very creative to see it from the photo...

All in all, it was an amazing fair, and if you couldn't make it this year, I hope that you can make it in 2018!!! This fair is really the place to trade, buy or sell your fossils, or also to get them IDd!

 

Happy fossil collecting!

It is indeed a great place! And it's not that far from Germany either, so next time you should really come! At the same time, I don't know where in Germany you live, so it could still be quite far away...

 

The bivalves come from 2 different locations: the ones on top are from Luc-Sur-Mer, and the ones beneath are from Lion-Sur-Mer. They're very nice in my opinion!

That's a fish. the Plesiosaurus label was for the tooth above it. The seller is also a member of this forum and has great Moroccan stuff.

 

 

I made some photos as well. But still need to make some photos of my haul. I'll post them tomorrow.

Oops, my bad! :wacko:

And yes, it was indeed awesome! I think it cost about 59'000 euros though, which was more than what was in my pocket...:P

Edit: just realized it was actually at 590 euros, a great deal!!! Once again: oops!
