I'll probably pack up some games (and table) and head over. Sounds like a good time.

I’m aiming to get there just before, but only because I don’t want to overstay my welcome. Not sure how this will go as I haven’t been to previous one

Lots of stuff setup already and more coming in. The 1pm rush should be great!

So sad I missed the festivities... Hopefully we'll have Waconia-Con in a few months.

My collection says it was a great turnout, with a lot of people setting up tables, good and great games for sale, and pretty good pricing from what I saw.

My wallet says "ouch."

Thanks to all involved in organizing, setting up and selling! It was fun and I bought more than I should have and, somehow, less than I should have!
Can't wait for the next one!

It wasn't as busy as the first one, but I believe there were more sellers this time.

Looking forward to next one. I wasn't able to join in due to picking up family at the airport and the flight got delayed... but glad it's been a successful experiment!

Yeah. I think a bunch of games went to good homes. I already got one to the table with my family yesterday. I look forward to future ones, and I liked the distillery and might have to visit more often.

This is how I felt as well. Seemed there were more people selling, but fewer people buying. Then again, I didn't bring much to sell and was able to sell/trade everything that I did, so I'd still consider it a success.

I do think 4 hours is a bit too long. From what I could tell, most of the buying/selling that happened after 3 was just other sellers trying to score deals. Maybe 2-3 hours instead of 4 next time?

My only regret (so far) is not buying more of those "Really Useful Boxes" from whoever was selling them. I bought $5 worth, since they seemed neat and I like the idea of little containers rather than baggies or dishes or nothing.

And then I figured out that they fit the pieces of Chicago Express that I also picked up, and that now I have used most of the boxes.

That person has started me down a slippery slope, and tomorrow I'll probably be seeking out plano boxes, next week I'll be found in some parking lot with a hobby lobby artist case, muttering about "optimal storage" with a wild look in my eyes...

I remember the first one being crazy as everyone was stuffed in the backroom of Wander North. Now that it was outside - a lot of it was spread out. I do believe the first one had a bit more traffic but it could have contributed to a number of things such as the State Fair, post GenCon, generally being a decent day outside vs. last time where it was near the 'spring cleaning' season and not much in terms of big events.

In all, I did well and will be participating in another. Paul mentioned that him, his group and Wander North want to expand and grow this.

I was planning to come to this and had cash to burn on some games from the buy/sell thread that I was hoping to find there (don't normally get up that far North, so those FFG meeting spot sales are rough) but sadly my 4 year old wound up sick all day while my wife was out of town so I couldn't get up there. Looking forward to checking this out next time though!

That store makes me happy. I don't buy much from there, but whenever I'm in it I feel calm.

I took like 4 from where I was set up from early in the day. My wife poured over them and got jealous of some of the stuff that sold quickly.

I will work to try to post them here later, though they aren't good, just a snapshot of the moment.

I took one - there were about 3 times as many tables as you can see in this picture:
