Regarding the rules for any adults-only box, everything seems pretty clear and logical... but what qualifies as a "lid?"

So far all of the other boxes I'm planning on bringing that are rated E-for-Everyone are regular brown cardboard shipping boxes.  They all have four flaps that fold over to cover it up - is this sufficient for my ecchi box?  I plan on having it set off to one side of my space, clearly marked, with the flaps closed until someone of legitimate age asks to see the contents.  If that won't fly, I can empty out one of those white file storage boxes with a lift-off lid, but that would be kind of a pain.

With Fanime and the swap meet finally coming into sight, I've been wondering what people are LOOKING for.  It looks like I'll wind up with four or five good sized boxes of anime-related goodness, and I'm hoping I'll be able to sell most of it (if only to then turn around and buy other people's stuff).  I'll have a fair number of monthly manga anthologies like Young Ace and the various Dengenki magazines, but would anyone be interested in buying them?  Not everyone will be able to actually read them, but that didn't stop me from looking at all the awesome illustrations.

I have an unrelated question about Swap Meet and didn't want to create a new thread for it since the title is general enough.

Has anyone ever tried selling anything expensive (~90) and/or rare and was successful selling it? I have a completed Rei garage kit and some other uncompleted garage kits that are a bit more expensive than what's usually sold at swap meets and wanted to know if they are worth bringing.

I won't mention what the actual product was, but I sold an item last year for $80.  People will definitely have cash on them at swap meet looking for good deals - I know I will.  I think you have to keep two things in mind when it comes to higher-end/priced items: is it a good price for what you're selling compared to new/retail price or is it a hard to find item that even hours on ebay won't turn up at a fair price.

That said, I'm really hoping this year will have a great turnout for swap meet.  I've had three boxes in my room ready to go for the last couple months, and I can hardly wait for May to come around.

So with only a couple of days left (really one, given how late I'm posting this,) before Fanime '09 begins, I wanted to double check and make extra sure about one thing: are we able to participate in Thursday night's swap meet as shoppers, even if we haven't pre-registered?  I'm pretty sure that was the case last year, and I missed the pre-reg cutoff date this year, although I did still sign up with the early registration.  I can understand not being able to sell without a badge, but it'd be a bummer to miss out on some potentially great deals.
