Paying for our spots, is it going to be like last year where when we registered we payed online? Or like the year before when we payed as we checked in at the con?. Just asking so we know if we have to pay immediately on the spot.

Payment will be online again.

I'll be at a group dinner... Maybe we'll be wrapping up by then so it won't be too rude when I pull out my phone to register for swap meet.  :-X

Just Awesome.

I will be in the middle of nowhere with no cell reception on a camp-out Thursday-Sunday. 48 hours is nowhere near enough notice. I've done the swap meet for the last 3 years, the 48 hour announcement is ridiculous.

Maybe ask if a friend can sign up for you?

So swap meet is going to be 2 days this year? Thursday and friday? For thursday what time does it start...?

And I am confused. Are you saying we need a seller's permit this year? I never had one before for swap meet.

As far as I can remember swapmeet has always been both days. On Thursday it starts at 6:30 for sellers.  And no you do not need to buy a permit to sell at swapmeet but youwill have to fill out a temperary sellers form like its always been.

If you have a Seller's Permit for Artist Alley, that will apply for Swap Meet.

If you do not have a Seller's Permit, you can fill out the Occasional Seller's Permit that is provided during the reg process.

Swap Meet is Thursday and Friday, Seller's check in starts at 6:30pm, buyers are let in at 7:30pm.  At 8:30pm we will start assigning no shows to the wait list.  Reg closes at 9pm.

You don't need a Seller's Permit.  Having one is nice if you're in AA, because it applies to both.  The Occasional seller's permit is what you have filled out in the past, a link is provided during the reg process for you to fill out and bring with you.

I should have been more clear, I meant I have a temp sellers permit.  AA is one event.  Swap meet would be my second event.  (More than 2 events a year you need a full permit)  Can I sill just use my AA temp permit?

I think you can have Fanime count as one event instead of counting various events that occur during Fanime as different events.

Swap Meet is ONLY Thurs and Fri? Im not even going to arrive in San Jose till 6:30 on Fri... Im going to have to rush to get there before 7:30, but if I take a cab from the hotel I probably can pull it off.....

This may have already been answered, but are we going to be required to actually have our badge to sell Friday? I dont know if Ill have time to get my badge if I have to get there quickly to not lose my spot...

My understanding is the Thursday swap meet is non-badged, but Friday will require a badge.

To sell you have to be badged.  If you need special arrangements to be made, please email swapmeet at fanime dot com after getting into the reg site.

Wait, so we can't bring our own dolly or cart to haul our stuff?
I have 4-6 boxes of stuff to sell. I can carry 3 at most if i stack up to my head...

Any suggestion if this is the case?

Maybe talk to other sellers and find someone to help you out if you do the same for them?

Since swap meet won't be in the convention center, I'm worried about foot traffic.

For Friday, could you let anyone in (without badges) like you do on Thursday? That would also help if reg is anything...like...last...year.....
