Swap Meet, Mofos.

Postby IvySparrow » Wed Jul 20, 2011 2:32 am

Got that big old stack of sticky old yaoi manga that's taking up all the room below your bed that you haven't "appreciated the artwork" in for months? Got a closet full of cosplays that you think is soooooo last season? Your dresser, desk, windowsill, and every other solid, flat surface in your room so completely packed with half-naked gashapon girls that you think you can bear to part with a few?
Go to a Swap Meet! In short, a swap meet is where a group of weeaboos such as ourselves meet up and trade our unwanted anime merchandise for the anime merchandise that other people don't want. Simple, really. Think back to the good old days of Neopets with the Trading Post. You give to get, no givesies backsies, no takesies backsies unless both parties agree to do so. You're gonna be responsible for your own stuff and decisions here. We don't want staff to have to break up catfights over nekomimi, as amusing as that would be.
You folks think we can be mature and hold this as a side event? Cause I got a few nice things lying around that I don't use anymore, and I'm sure you all do, too. My only concern is that impulsive traders will end up regretful and butthurt, and those with a lower charisma score might get talked out of a few things they don't want to give up. I think this can work, but only if we keep our impulses, greed, and possible penchant for bullying behaviors in check. Seriously, those are the reasons Pokemon was banned in school. Let's not relive that. So, what say ye? Sound like a jolly good time?

EDIT: As to not impede the sales of the dealers room, the swap meet should be kept at bartering items only, i.e. don't bring cash to use at this event.

I know this happens at a couple other cons, usually it's fine as no money trades hands.
I'd so do this. XD I've got a stack of stuff I've been selling and what doesn't sell I wouldn't mind taking to trade there with. The key to making sure its items you don't want is to put it away somewhere out of sight for awhile and if you don't miss it than that's proof your ready to be rid of it, it's how I go about when I think about getting rid of something.

If I'm at the con then I'd love to do this, I have all sorts of random stuff I'd love to swap for something equally random.

Glad this is getting positive responses so far! I'm becoming confidant that it might work out now!

I could probably bring a couple of dvds to this. Singles of stuff I didn't like or of stuff that I have the set for. Have to check to see what I have.

I'm definatly n for this. I don't have any DVDs I want to give away but I have some mangas and doujinshi I have been dying to give away. Mostly the doujinshi though. Questions...for the swap meet as long as they r covered up is it allow to swap adult mature items? Have a few doujinshi that I thoughT was was g rated but were adult books(hate eBay) and now I just wanted to give them to someone who apprciates the books. I soo can't though it way for the money I paid for them.

I don't see why you wouldn't be allowed to. As long as you card who is interested in looking at them, same as dealers do.

I agree with Marzipan's thing about carding. Keep the 18+ stuff in a separate container, and probably by genre too (yaoi vs yuri vs regular). I'll go ahead and allow it, though anyone above me CAN override me. lol

So, folks, when and where would you like to have this? Rather, where and and when would we allowed to have it? It doesn't seem like something that would qualify as a panel, so I don't know if we could use rooms in the convention space or not. If for some reason that we're not able to, would anyone be opposed to having it out front off to the side, weather permitting?

Seems like a fine idea to me. It's set-up should be easy enough, right?

Since I just got in a re-release of a set, I'll likely bring it (no one else wants it cause it's the old ADV set), and a couple of singles if I have them still.
