A variety of collectors were on hand for the 26 Annual Husker Toy & Buckle Show at the Lancaster Event Center in Lincoln, Nebraska. According to The Lincoln Journal Star, people who have used John Deere tractors and individuals who make their own belts were in attendance in the state's capital.

The news source reported that the event features more than 65 vendors and 170 display tables, where collectors are able to showcase their talents in producing work, or their affinity for buckles and toys by showing off their massive collection.

Erny Bugbee, who went to his first show in 1983, noted that he couldn't bring his whole collection due to a lack of room in his car.

"I carry what people want - everything from chickens to tractors," he told the news source.

ToyFarmer.com reported that the show was held all day on January 22, and visitors were treated to such a wide variety of toys and buckles due to the fact that many of the vendors bring products from other areas of the country.
