I don't know if anyone still checks here as opposed to Facebook or other sites, but Swap Meet registration has been announced as starting on Saturday, April 29 at noon.

Quote from: AliceEveryday on May 09, 2019, 12:47:45 AMPlease note that I cannot give specific legal advice regarding how to handle the BOE forms. The most that I can say is that we will be collecting a copy of all documents, including the Swap Meet registration form and a signed copy of the guidelines, each day at check-in. Based on your specific circumstances, if you have additional forms needed to sell at Swap Meet, we will collect those at that time as well.
Should we send in a copy of the BOE-410-D form before the meet to staff or just a physical copy onsite is okay?
Quote from: Anon on May 01, 2019, 07:58:01 AMI can't say for certain, but probably not. The way the system is set up, unfinished or duplicate accounts will count as a taken spot until I go in and de-list them. My current plan is to give a few days for people to finish with their registrations and the initial kinks to get worked out, then start letting waitlisted people through in batches.
Coming out of my 1-year retirement for a comeback sale/clearout of my collection. Got my spot for Thursday, wait listed for Friday. Are we looking at a full utilization of the hall this year?
Quote from: redroses3164 on April 30, 2019, 06:09:54 PMIf you haven't already, please e-mail email@example.com . I'm in the process of responding to the first wave of people who need help and am dealing with them in the order I get e-mails.
I was doing my swap meet reg but for some reason, I now have a third seller in my list. I cannot delete them anymore because I am stuck on step 2B (finalizing step, special requests account information section). I cannot edit the seller list anymore and I did not add this third seller.
My email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The third seller who can't be deleted is Brandon.
Edit: and now I'm in a stuck loop where it continually says my account is not confirmed and then I get it sent to my email. Then I click to begin the next steps...and then says my account is not confirmed.

Hello! Doing swap meet for the first time together with a friend and wanted to know what info is needed for registration? Because I'll probably be the one to do registration for me and that person as well. (Unless we have to register separately?) Thanks!
Quote from: shiumi on April 28, 2019, 06:44:52 PMIf you are looking at what I am looking at, that post was made 4/27/18 and was in reference to last year's Swap Meet.
The fanime site said the swap meet registration would open up today (4/28/19) but there is a 404 error when I try to click the link. Is there any information on when this issue will be fixed? I really want to secure a spot...
Quote from: Nami914 on April 28, 2019, 05:57:09 PMIf that was on the official site, that was in error. We didn't have a solid date for opening.
Is anyone else still getting this message "The requested URL /2019/swapmeet/ was not found on this server. Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request." when clicking on the registration page?
Registration should've opened today April 28, 2019 at 12:00 pm, right?
Quote from: Heavysauce555 on April 17, 2019, 06:59:08 PMThis hasn't really come up much before, but my inclination is to say no. The actual sellers there paid money to reserve a spot at Swap Meet. For others to then come in to trade their items without reserving the spot or paying wouldn't feel right for those who did get their spots.
Question, if you are not a seller, can you as a buyer bring your own merch not to sell but trade?
Quote from: EJAY420 on April 16, 2019, 08:03:12 PMYes, you do not need a Fanime badge to come to buy at Swap Meet on Thursday.
Is swap meet free to attend on thursday?
Or do we not do that anymore?
Quote from: Patchwork Panda on April 14, 2019, 10:07:34 PMRegistration is online ahead of the convention. We're not yet ready to open up registration, but I'll post the information here when we have a start date. The info will also go out over the other official Fanime information channels.
Hello! Where do I go to get the Application? Do I submit the form and pay for the spot at con in the hour before the swap meet opens?
Sorry if I missed any info, it's my first time trying to get a spot and I read through everything but am still trying to connect some gaps!
Quote from: Ecchi ja Nai on April 05, 2019, 12:14:39 AMThis is pretty much correct. Usually we'll do our best to try and get people where they want to be and next to whom they want to be next to, but the spots still must remain separate. Each person can only sell in their own spot, and you can't have multiple spots switching items back and forth. Watching and helping out briefly during bathroom breaks and this like is fine, but not taking two spots and operating them essentially as one larger spot.Quote from: Fermata on April 02, 2019, 10:35:28 PM
Another edit: Actually, I think I was pretty unclear. A better question is, will the three of us (all registered and everything) be able to sell our stuff mixed in two different spaces that are next to each other? This means that we want to be able to freely move between the two spaces since our stuff will be mixed in either space. Technically, it will be two people registering for one space and the third single person buying another space next to it, and then the three of us just put our stuff in either space.
I think where you might run into issues with swap meet staff is the mixing of stuff between the multiple spaces. They're pretty explicit about not combining spaces to form Mega Swapmeet Zord. Having a space that measures 42'x6' (three spaces across lengthwise) would not be allowed. Each person would have to keep their items within whatever space they're registered to.
Having said that, my friend and I have been selling in neighboring spots for years. We definitely both tend to have a ton of stuff so we each need the full space anyway, but we also like to run a couple of laps looking for bargains ourselves and might need to hit the restroom at some point during the night. We both register separately and pay for our spots separately. What staff has allowed us to do in the past is watch over the other person's spot and all their stuff while they're away. If someone wants to purchase something or has a question, we hop over to the other spot to take care of business and then return to our own area. I think as long as you don't abuse that, staff probably won't have a problem.
So to what you were asking specifically, no, you can't register multiple spots and share the entire area with your group. But, depending on your intentions and so long as your items themselves are within your designated area, you should be able to move back and forth if needed.
Quote from: Ftwyn on April 04, 2019, 11:00:48 AMAs defined in the official rules and the application, the dimensions for a long box are 27.25 inches long by 7.5 inches wide and 10.8 inches tall.
Are there specific dimensions to a "long box"?
Quote from: Jazzygilla22 on March 26, 2019, 02:24:22 PM1) It usually refers to unopened merch. That being said, we're not overly harsh on this. It mainly is there in reference to people who buy things wholesale for the purpose of reselling them. I.E., people who really are more appropriately in Dealer's Hall.
Hello! Excited to sign up for the first time this year! I had a question regarding some charms I have!
1) in the rules it says no new merchandise, does that refer to unopened items or current merch? I have a lot of small charms and toys I have kept unopened and in pristine condition, would that be ok?
2) a lot of my charms are small and have packaging I wouldn't like to get ruffled in a box. Would tying them on a grate with small squares be ok? Or like a piece of board with holes, and tie them onto it and lay it on the floor ? If not would something with pockets and played on the ground be ok to display them?
My apologies for long questions, I just want to plan out organization for differently priced items as well as keeping their condition good!
Quote from: AliceEveryday on March 20, 2019, 04:17:56 PMThe online registration for Swap Meet does require a Fanime Badge number to complete.
Do we need a valid Fanime badge at the time of online registration or just during the onsite check in?

I can't seem to find this though I'm sure it is somewhere and I am just having a terrible moment of stupidity, but what size should the adult content box be? I recall it having specific dimensions and want to be sure I get it right.
