Quote from: Ecchi ja Nai on May 16, 2015, 10:32:29 PMWhat series/volumes are you looking for? I'll be selling at swap meet both nights. While my manga selection has been whittled down quite a bit from what I brought last year, I may have something you're looking for.

Unless it's something you were specifically looking for at a price (or less) you were ready to pay up front, hold your spending in the dealer's hall until you've had a chance to go through once.Advice I have is to not carry all your cash with you every day. If you're going to con for all four days (plus Day Zero swap meet), spread out your carried cash accordingly. This allows you to budget for food if that's part of your total spending and to keep from blowing your bankroll on the first "must have" thing you may see. This is even more important if you are traveling from out of town. Each night when I return home I replenish my "carry" amount with the "leave behind" amount before returning to con - it helps me to regulate my budget. Last year I kept finding that I had a ton more money carrying over and by Sunday was able to buy a pricier item (for me) that I was on the fence about since the start of con.Most importantly have fun. The best parts of Fanime don't involve spending beyond the cost of your badge.

In reality, there's not a whole lot of things to buy at Fanime that you can't get online. However, you do get to physically touch and see items, and able to get it right away, so there's that.
