Yeah it was definitely a lot of fun. I did meet @Spinosaurus and @Fitch1979 had a stand with many of the nice Moroccan fossils you can see here in the photos @Max-fossils posted. I bought a bunch of mystery Kem Kem bones there. I'm still working out what types of bones they all are. I also bought one of those beautiful Osteolepis fishes in that last photo. Generally I don't collect much fish, but those were just so beautiful I couldn't leave without one. I also bought a cave bear calcaneus, some stands and an old book that has some fantastic illustrations of pretty much every bone of Allosaurus.

Sadly I didn't find any woolly rhino bones I still needed for my composite skeleton.

 

 

Sadly I don't have any photos of the fair myself. Though I met a lot of nice people and bought a bunch of nice fossils. The fair was definitely worth seeing.

 

So thanks for posting these photos!

Sounds like you had fun too!

The GeoRockShop stand had lots of miscellaneous North Sea bones, some of them woolly rhino. They were in those big boxes underneath the tables. But I suppose you did look there. 

The guy with the Osteolepis was really interesting! I talked to him for quite some time, he had lots to say. I wished I could also buy one of these Scottish fishies, but I didn't have the money... He collected all the fossils himself with his brother and father from what I understood, and they published an article about their finds and research in the last issue of Grondboor & Hamer. Fascinating!

Some more interesting bivalves:

  • Neithea quinquecostata from the Vaches Noires in France, from the Cretaceous
  • A Plicatula sp bivalve from Cap-Blanc-Nez in France, from the Jurassic.
  • My oldest bivalves yet: from the Ordovician! :o

  • A bunch of shells from Newport in Oregon from the Tertiary.
  • A pot of seashells from Miste, Netherlands, a closed location!

A bunch of awesome French seashells I got from a very nice guy that was also visiting the fair. He overheard me talking about fossil bivalves (again :P), and because he had a surplus of fossil seashells (of which he is also a fan of), he told me to wait where I was, and came back a few minutes later with three boxes full of these awesome shells! He gave me one of the bags he had (the one shown above) in the boxes, and also a small assortment of shells from Cuise-la-Motte (including my first Campanile)! :ighappy:

A big plate full of little floating crinoids from Solnhofen! Normally I wasn't interested in buying it, but because I still had a little bit of money left over in my budget, and that this thing was priced surprisingly low, I bought it anyways.

That's a nice variety of fossils you have there.

 

Here are some photos of my haul.

Kem Kem stuff in the middle. Scottish fish in the frame on the right, cave bear heel next to it. Allosaurus book and stands on the left.

And here's a closeup of that lovely fish.

Some cool Kem Kem material. Have been wanting this kind of stuff since quite some time now, so I am glad to add these to my collection!

Nice stuff!!! You're lucky to have gotten one of these fish. :envy:

What's the big (jaw?) fossil completely at the top?

And finally a fantastic little old collection of Belgian shark teeth! With a very nice Lutetian auriculatus from Balegem bottom-left. The rest of the fossils are from Nederokkerzeel and Oelegem in Belgium. I think all three locations are now closed (I'm not sure about the two last ones if they are closed, but Balegem definitely is).

Also went to Ede last weekend, added these two sharkteeth to my collection. Both found in Antwerp, Belgium.  - Hexanchus Griseus. -Sphyrna Zygaena. It’s always such fun to talk to everyone and search for some nice fossil specimen

All three locations are indeed closed.
