It will be my first time attending the Essen games fair.

At other conventions I have attended there has been a bring and buy sale, where people sell all their old games and the stall takes a small cut of the sale. Is there anything like this at Essen? and would it be a good idea for me to take 5 or 6 games I wish to sell. (Just so I can make space on the shelf for all the new games I am going to buy.)

Our Hotel is very close to the fair so transporting should not be a problem and we are driving with plenty of room in the car.

I've never seen a "bring & buy" stall at Essen.

There is a math trade with Essen exchange and an Essen auction geeklist, maybe you can use one of those?

There used to be, but I haven´t seen any lists for Essen 2012 yet. Do you have any links?

Thanks. Auctions needs no explanation but "math trade"? If I want to buy something from that list, do I then send a private message with my bid to that user, or how is it working? I searched for an explanation but I couldn´t find any.

I'd be up for that, if you're interested in my items. You should then add your money offer as item in the math trade while it is open for submissions.
