     The Tintin Opening last Friday was a lot of      fun, with many fans attending and enjoying Belgian treats and snagging their collectible Tintin!
Tintin event - Corky Admiring
A collector admiring the selection.

     In attendance was our favorite Belgian (well, aside from Tintin) Guy, our Tintin supplier who flew up from California to open our event. Even the Belgian Honorary Consul came by! There was an undercurrent of French being spoken, a film about Tintin creator Herge, and excitement galore.
