My name is Sara, 25/f, non smoker, first time to Fanime and California (from Pittsburgh).

I’m flying into California on Saturday and I’m looking for place to stay from Saturday night to Monday. My friend who lives in San Jose ditched me at the last minute and now I have no where to go. My only plans are the Sunday Joe Hisaishi concert at the California Theater.

I don’t have a lot in the way of funds but I can work something out money-wise to share a room. I don’t care how many people or what the arrangements are, I’ll even sleep on the floor.

Any help would be appreciated. Please DM, email at havocplz @ or find me on Twitter/tumblr/ instagram @blackehavoc

I just checked the weather for fanime weekend and it looks like there might be showers around the time of the gathering.

Hello, I forgot to send my "occasional seller" form to the swapmeet email, is it too late to do that? Everything else is done and but I still haven't gotten my swapmeet placement so I figured this might be why. From what I understand I just have to fill out the form and send it digitally to the swapmeet email? Thanks for the help.

Quick question! For those who are setting up Swap Meet and will be selling there, would parking at the tent be allowed? I remember last time I was in line I saw there was a space for parking your car, but I wasn't sure if that is allowed for us sellers.

The first batch of Waitlisted people should have received an e-mail from me a few days ago with instructions on completing their registration.  If you are still waitlisted, I will be letting the next batch through to process their registration in a couple days, assuming there are still spaces left (Which, at this rate, there likely will be, but no guarantees).

Wow, are you really fulfilling all the available spots already? Are you expanding to the entire hall? Sounds like you're going to have a huge turnout if you are, congrats. Use this as an excuse for more budget next year  ;D
Yes and no.  To peel back the curtain a bit, once an application makes it to a certain point in the process, it counts as a filled spot.  Even if that person then doesn't finish applying, the site will show that as an unavailable spot for anyone who tries to apply later.  I need to go in from time to time and check how many are actually completed.  From there, I can let in some to all of the waitlist.

This might be my first year doing swap meet (still on waitlist though). I have a question about the union rules. Hand trucks and dollies are explicitly not allowed inside, but does this also apply implicitly? Like if I use a suitcase with wheels that I could tow inside or put everything on a tarp at the door and drag the bundle in?

I also have a question about qualifying as an occasional seller.Nvm, I applied for a permit. I guess this question is more for occasional sellers. If the packaging and everything else inside looks new but the seal is broken, does that qualify as new?
Per union rules, hand trucks and carts are not allowed inside, but typically suitcases with wheels have been more allowed.  I haven't seen anyone in previous years put everything on a tarp to drag, but that is a creative solution and I applaud your problem-solving skills! 

Another thing to consider is that everything right up to the doors is public property and the rules don't apply.  As such, you can use a hand-cart up to the door, unload everything, then move it by hand once you're in the doors.
