Toy collectors from all over the northeast gathered for the fall edition of the Rochester Collectible and Vintage Toy Show.

It  was held at the Dome Arena in Henrietta. The show gives toy enthusiasts a chance to browse and buy classic toys, dolls and games beloved by generations. There was something for everyone, from Hot Wheels and action figures to Barbies and wind-up toys.

"Usually we have toys from every era of like ever, and I see a lot of old stuff that I've heard of but have never seen before,” said Alex Lembke, event visitor.

The show is usually held in June and November every other year. This year organizers even added a vintage toy auction. A portion of the proceeds are donated to the Pirate Toy Fund.
