The Pasadena Book Fair is this weekend: October 3-4. Check the above link for details on times and directions. Here's a link to a small catalogue of what I'm taking with me to the fair. It's a whole variety of material, from soup to nuts, as it were. Material from the mid 1800's to the present day - and not only books, but ephemera, photographs, posters, little weird doodads and stuff I can't really describe. Have a look: Pasadena Book Fair Catalogue - 2015.
After that, I get a bit of a break until the beginning of February when it's time for the San Francisco Book Fair. Details on that will come later.
If you'd like a free pass to the Pasadena Book Fair, please email me and I'll hold one at the front counter for you.
I do appraisals of books -- if you have an interest in having a book appraised, please let me know.
