Re: Swap Meet 2011 Info VERY IMPORTANT INFO Updated 5/3/11 *UPDATED*
« Reply #140 on: May 09, 2011, 03:11:50 AM »

Quick question(and sorry in advance if its been answered, but I didn't see this clarified). I didn't pre-reg for fanime but instead did early registration(different price point for the badge than pre-reg). If we pre-reg'd for the swap meet, will our badges be pulled whether or not we pre-reg'd for the con or did early reg as long as we're sellers at the swap meet?

1)Can I sell food?
2)Can I sell grab bags?

Sorry if this was already answered in a previous thread. I looked for it though.
No food. I don't know about the grab bags.

Sorry if this is already answered but after rereading the front page about a dozen times I'm still unsure. When I registered my sister and I for the Swap meet I did so under my own name. However, I just learned that she pre-registered us as a group under her name. The front page says our badges will only be available on Thursday for the person in charge of the group which would be her, however I'm the one who registered us for the swap. Hopefully that makes sense! So I'm really unsure if ours or my badge will be available for the special Thursday pick-up or if we'll have to use the regular line.

Unfortunately, in this case, you would have to pick up your badges in the regular line.

I know it's not a perfect system, and it was very last minute so we were unable to accomodate everyone this year. I apologize :(

I basically provided Registration with the exact Thursday Swap Meet Registration lists. The individuals on there who are pre-registered individually and/or are group leaders, will have their badges pulled. Everyone else will not.

Thank you very much for your understanding! Hopefully we can work out the kinks for next year.

Ah, not a problem, thanks for letting me know :) Guess I'll have to super cross my fingers we still can sell even with being on the waitlist!

Are dress forms/torso mannequins acceptable? I'm thinking about bringing just one to help with displaying clothing items.

No switching is allowed; if your name isn't on the reg list or waiting list, you don't get in. Sorry.

I know there was, and that was a huge problem. This is why we specifically call out that such items are prohibited this year (in the rules). It's because it's a "floor" event, and we need to be able to scan the room for security reasons. Big items blocking our view is a big no-no. No mannequins, bookshelves, clothing racks, etc. Thanks.

Based on what Marisa said, no you can't. The problem is that they go by the list, it's not as if you guys have tickets that you can exchange or whatever. If you attempted to trade, the person would have to explain to the swap meet staff "Yeah I"m here for John Doe, he should be on the list, but he couldn't make it." And then they would have to take your word for it. What if John Doe shows up afterwards? You can see how this can be a problem.

There is a workable way around this that, as far as I could tell, is within the rules. It says you can have an additional person selling with you, but the person who is one the list has to be the one to actually check in, pay, and enter the room with you.

Quote from: Fanime Swap Meet Rules
You may only register for one space per day (Thursday and Friday), and a maximum of two people may share a space (children under 12 years of age under parental supervision are allowed over the 2 person limit)

So I would guess if you don't mind checking in and escorting the person into the space, it would be plausible to allow them to sell in your place at your spot. That way you, the person actually on the list, took hold of the spot and paid for it and everything. Then on Friday, the two of you swap roles. They check you in and pay, then leave you there to sell. It's a matter of finding somebody willing to do all that. The only real problem is if somebody agrees to do this, and Thursday goes down smoothly, but on Friday things fall through and you're unable to get in for whatever reason (person bailed, was late, etc).

This is correct, but there must be at least one person in your booth as well with a badge. So, if you do this, make sure the second person you are checking in has a badge.  In all other cases, I am just requiring one badged individual per space.

Yes O_O and for some bizarre reason it's not up on the web site. I will make sure it's up ASAP.

Did the new rule about badge pickup @ the swap meet affect what time we can start lining up?
