Last year I don't recall their being a sign up for Thursday and I did the at-the-door registration. Does this mean that chances of at the door registration for Thusrday's swap meet will be much slimmer this year?

There is no at-the-door registration this year due to the overwhelming pre-reg demand. Sorry :(

Okay, to be clear because the answer seems to have changed...
I am NOT pre-reg or on the waiting list, but it is ok for me to show up thursday and try to get an open spot if there happens to be one?

Should I not be able to get in thusday since I'm not on the list, does anyone that have a full spot on friday, that only needs a half spot now? Or in other words, does someone have a full spot they can share with me thurs or friday? I really need to unload this stuff.

This might sound silly, but are we allowed to have balloons at our selling space?

Thanks ^_^;;

I know the folks in Artist Alley aren't allowed to have balloons, so I would assume the same goes for Swap Meet

Ok. No balloons for me then.

Thanks for responding so quickly! :)

I don't believe the facilities allow balloons anywhere inside the convention center. Please leave them at home.  :)

But...BALLOONS?! *makes pouty kid face+bambi eyes*

@h-chan: People who did not pre reg for a swap meet space/are not on the waiting list are on the very bottom of the pile and THEORETICALLY if somehow swap meet staff make it all the way through the main list + the wait list and the 75 spaces aren't filled, anyone who is interested in selling, who has the proper paperwork/ID and is waiting for a spot MAY get one. Again, I'd wait for Angel's word on this, but from my understanding they won't let swap meet spots sit empty if they get through the main list and the wait list and there are still spots open.

The facilities will do to balloons what they did to Bambi's mom.

And then they'll charge you for the cleanup.

Will the swap meet on thursday night be open to everyone like it was last year, or will it be only to people with pre-regged badges?

Can we bring plastic drawer containers for items to be in? Like this for example: http://www.stacksandstacks.com/images/product/reg-10890.jpg

I'm pretty sure Swap Meet will be open to the public again like last year. Correct me if I am wrong. ???

We are definitely going to do this on Thursday, but it's unlikely we will be able to fill all of the people on the waiting list on Friday (it's like .... 90 people).

Err.  Probably everyone >.<  You know, this is more of a con thing and not a me thing, so I don't really have a 100% answer -- so just TRY to make it in, it's probably not a huge deal.

Friday we are definitely checking all badges.

No. Sorry!

Note to all:

You can bring:
A blanket, your boxes for your items, and a folding chair for people who can't sit on the floor. That's it. This isn't a dealer's room.

Use your boxes wisely. If you go to the comic book store and buy some long boxes, you can use the lids to display items and you can flip over the boxes and use those to set things on. Or set things on empty boxes. The boxes ARE your best resource.

What about a suitcase? Or are boxes the only proper mode of transportation for our goods?

I believe suitcases are fine.  I've been bringing in suitcases each time, and they're just the carry-on luggage size.  Last year I brought a big one in to hold my manga, but since those didn't sell I'm not bringing that this year.

It's much easier to pull a suitcase (with wheels) full of comics & items than it is to carry them.. oofah!

Suitcases are fine, as long as they are easily opened for our staff to inspect before we place you in a spot.

However, if you have adult material -- I do require a box, with a lid.

Thanks!
