Lakeland is about half way between Orlando and Tampa, and easily accessible

From I-4 via Route 98 (South). When Route 98 turns left, continue going straight

on South Florida Avenue, and when you get to downtown, just following the signs.


The show will be open from 10 A.M. to 6 P.M. on Friday and Saturday, and from

10 A.M. to 4 P.M. on Sunday. There will also be a Free Appraisal Clinic all day on

Sunday for folks to bring in any type of Coins or Currency that they would like to

have identified and to receive a verbal fair market appraisal for. Thursdays (4 P.M.

to 8 P.M.) at Collectorama are for dealer setup, and our wholesale only “Special

Bourse”. Non-tabled dealers gain entry with a $25.00 (min. donation), via company

check, to the Florida Youth Villa.


The host hotel for the Collectorama Show is the Ramada Inn, located just off of

Interstate I-4 (Exit 33) and a special rate of $59.00 per night is offered to all show

attendees. Reservations can be made by calling the Ramada Inn direct at

863-577-0977. Be sure to ask for the Collectorama Show rate.


There are several popular restaurants near the new Ramada Inn, and many really

great restaurants in the immediate Lakeland area. The Lakeland Center’s snack

bar is under new management, and is also upgrading the quality of snacks and food,

and a better selection of food available to all show attendees.


Some dealer table and booth space is still available, and show information can be

obtained by calling Dawn Cirillo, at 561-392-8551, or by email via the Internet

to CollectoramaShow@aol.com. A new web site is under construction and can be

visited on line at: http://www.wix.com/coinshows/collectorama. The next

Collectorama Show will be held February 18-20, 2011 at the Lakeland Center.

I went on Friday just as it opened and it seem like there were a lot of empty tables and dealer that I have gone to in the past missing. I literally made it around the floor twice in 30 minutes and saw virtually nothing that I specialize in to buy. if I did see it ...as usually the seller had no idea how to fairly price the coins and they were asking 2X-4X what the coins could have actually sold for in any venue I am aware of...


I almost always have a good time and finds lots of good stuff in lakeland so I am not downing the show but this particular time the show was a waste of my time.

Thanks for the update - I was thinking of going -

but its a haul for me in SW Fla to Lakeland - especially

if there isn't another show in another town nearby - to make it

worth my while on going...ie: Orlando County Fair show.


How were the Barbers there ? Any decent mid grades ??

I would hazard a guess that Shane didn't see a single Barber the entire time he was there.
