I have a HUGE collection of all mint in package toys and obscure collectibles from the first couple of years of G3. I want to sell them all, keeping only my G1 and G2 collections.

I live in East Texas.

Which fair (s) do you think would be my best bet for this?  Alternatively, is there a good method/service for offering an entire collection for a flat price or perhaps best offer?

Thank you for any brainstorms that may be helpful.

There's a lot going on in my life, and I'm struggling with depression/anxiety, so I'm not very social right now, not trading, etc.  But I plan to go to a MLP Fair (soon?) and liquidate my G3 collection, so I'll post about that as the time nears.
Love to you all :-)

Isn't there someone who runs a meet in Texas, I'm wanting to think it was in the Houston area (but could be wrong)? Thought I saw a thread about that not long ago. Keep an eye out for that.

As for trying to sell them here or on ebay, you would probably get more overall by selling at least the harder to find, more sought after ones separately or in small lots with one "interesting" pony and a couple more common ones.

Also, you could try Craigslist if you want to sell them as one huge lot. (Just be careful setting up the in-person meet!)

Good luck

This may not be of much help since I live in Pennsylvania, but there's a convention here called Steel City Con that's held multiple times throughout the year, and 90% of the convention is a huuuuuuuge vendor hall of people selling older toys, newer toys, other merch, etc. I've bought several old G1s and G3s, and even G4s, from people at that con. Seriously...countless tables of awesome toys! Maybe see if there's a convention/fair of some sort like that around you?

Good luck!
