The craft fair will be combined with the Otaku Flea Market on Saturday and will run from noon-9pm in the Market Room. You may begin lining up at 9am to bring your items in to sell. If you are attending the convention on Sunday only, please be sure you have purchased admission before you line up, otherwise you will not be permitted to setup.
Any attendee is welcome to sell at this Fair. Any arts or crafts that you sell, must be of your own creation. We are welcoming authors to sell their books as well. We generally follow the same guidelines as we do for our artist alley and although we’ve never had an issue, we do reserve the right to ask you to remove any arts or crafts we deem inappropriate. Please keep to your own space and be respectful of your neighbors. Please no solicitation for donations. Please do not make items that contain Colossalcon East’s trademarked logo or mascots.
After you’ve picked up your admission badge, you may head over to the craft fair. They will begin the process at 9am on Sunday. If you wish to line up in advance, the line will begin outside of the craft fair(Events 1) and run along the wall. You must bring in product through the designated loading dock. Please do not bring items into the convention center through the glass doors. When you bring in your product, your spot should be labeled for you. To avoid people gaming the system, we aren’t 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. Based on last year, we’re expecting a very full house this time, so you will initially be limited to half a table (3′ wide by 2.5′ deep).
So to summarize:
-go to craft fair room (starting at 9am for check in)
-staff will get some info from you, and instruct on where to setup.
-find your half-table
-Make sure you have change.
-Cart your items to/from the craft fair in a rolling suitcase, so you don’t have to carry everything.
