Staff will begin signing in people at 9am, doors will open at 10am.. The flea market will run from 10am-5pm in the market room.
The Otaku Flea Market takes place on Sunday of the convention. Here, you can set up and sell your old anime, manga, video games, figures, plush, cosplays and more! If you wish to line up in advance, the line will begin at Events 1, and wrap around the back hall. Check-in is scheduled to begin 1 hour before the event opens, but staff will likely have the room set up before then, so be prepared to check in earlier. No sign-up is required. To avoid people gaming the system, we will not be allowing anyone to pick their spot. We will start assigning tables closest to the entrance, and then work our way back, so the earlier you check-in, the better spot you should have. If you would like a specific table, you may request so from staff at the door. We will try to accommodate as we are able.
How to sell:
• Buy admission and pick up your badge
• Line up at main flea market room (Events 1)
• Once check-in starts, staff will assign you a table spot Table Size Tables will be one per person/group, rather than half tables. Tables are first come, first serve.
