Some of you may remember, back in February we had a Gamer's Flea Market that was a tad chaotic due to many attendees and sellers. However, by most accounts it was very successful.

Well, we are trying again. Please read the below information and let me know if you have any interest in a table. If not in a table, PLEASE show up for a great event and have a couple of yummy cocktails!!

Place: Wander North Distillery - outdoors in the parking lot
When: 8/25 from 1:00 to 5:00

Additional information:
Tables: We will have the parking lot to work with. There will be no restrictions on tables, BUT you will have to bring your own tables.
Cost: Free - same as before, please just patronize the establishment with the purchase of a drink or two.
Food: We are trying to line up a food truck (maybe two) for the event.

Other:
We will be having a silly additional event called the ".05k Mordon Fun Run". This is the distance between Wander North and the new brewery that is opening (about 1 block). Make the run and you can buy a tee shirt. Some of this is still in the works, but it should all be hammered out by the day of the event.

Feel free to reach out with any questions.

Thanks!!

Thanks for the bump/reminder. Do sellers usually show up throughout? Trying to figure out the best time to pop in and browse for a few minutes.

There has only been one other. Most sellers were there at the start and things were fast and furious for most of the time it was running.

I can't make it... However, I'll make a deal with someone if they want. They can sell my stuff and keep half the money. GM me if interested. I have a tub full of games to sell.

I will have to look into if I can do this, but if so I will try to forewarn folks with stuff. My wife and I were looking to sell some stuff in preparation of an upcoming move.

My only goal will then be to buy less than I sell. But hopefully other people can come and benefit from this!

I plan on showing up and hunting for deals, dragons, and the elusive Chad sighting that is a [west sub]urban myth.

I've got some games to trade/sell (marked as For Trade in my collection) but won't get a table or stay the whole time. Husband points only get you so far...

You should definitely buy some of my stuff. Maybe we could have an East vs. West rock-paper-scissors showdown. whistle

As this area has some pretty severe road construction going on, any last-minute traffic and route suggestions?

It looks like, from the east, that 36 to NE Stinson should work alright, but I'll admit that I haven't driven that way recently, so I might be subject to the winds of fate on my adventure tomorrow.

Last I checked Northbound 35W was out of commission, though, so coming from the south might not be as easy. Google Maps thinks it is open, but it may be sub-optimal.

It is all a mess over there, but the road to the brewery is open. I went by there on Sunday.

I have a couple games to sell, but don't have the time to have a table there for 4 hours.
Any recommendations on how sell them at the flea market?

Same. I'm more interested in shopping around but I do have just a couple to offer for sale or trade...is a table necessary or are there other options?

Post the games here (or hint that people should look at your "For Trade" items), and see if you can't scare up some trade offers or activity through geekmails?

That's what I did last year, and to be honest it wasn't all that effective, but I can only show up for an hour or two and I don't want to lug a table around.

Speaking of hints, here's my list of games I'm up for trading (preferably) or selling:

Capital Lux
The Chameleon
Citadels (tiny box version, not the new revision/version)
Hanabi
Innovation
Memoir '44
Mission: Red Planet (first edition)
Not Alone
Pandemic: Reign of Cthulhu
Pixel Tactics
Raxxon
Small World
Spy Alley
Targi
Tier auf Tier: Jetz geht's rund!

Make a sign to carry around or that could sit somewhere for the time you'll be there.

Make sure to check out a drink or two in the distillery. They are quite tasty.

Thanks.
I have a geeklist selling a couple including Civilization Descartes edition and Realm of Heroes.
If anyone has interest through this thread, lemme know. I will be at the flea market for sure at some point.
