After the sale: Please consider donating any leftover books to our Book Drive, and any other unsold genre items to our Charity Auction.
Science Fiction-Fantasy and Horror Swap-N-Shop!
We asked you last month to use this month's sale as a chance to go through your basement, attic, garage, closet, and the all the boxes of books and other items still hanging on since your last move, to collect some really GOOD STUFF that is genre-related, but that you no longer need/want/have room for. We hope your treasure-hunting has been fruitful!
We would love to see SF, Fantasy, Speculative, and/or Horror-Themed:
DVDs, VCR tapes
CDs, Audio books, Radio plays
T-shirts, ties, or other wearables
Toys, Models, Robots, Figurines
Ray-guns, light sabers, swords, etc.
Games, Trading cards and collectibles
Tchotchkes of all descriptions
Any Dues-paid member may bring their items to sell. All members and guests are welcome to come and buy. When the Writers' Place tables are all filled, you'll be on your own, so consider bringing your own portable tables. You're also on your own for easels and other vertical displays, unless you arrange to borrow Art Show panels.
How to borrow Art Show Panels: Call, text, or email Ty Gephardt, our Quartermaster (he's in your Member's Directory) by Thursday August 13, to request a pair of Art Show panels.
Art Show Panels will be a pair of 2-ft-wide-by-six-foot-high metal grids, hinged in the middle so they fold out into a freestanding V-shape. Any seller may borrow one hinged pair (lights not included).
If you need S-hooks, bulldog clips, or other Art Show hardware, please discuss that with Ty.
Food Theme: FOOD ON A STICK!
Portable, low-mess, delicious treats are the order of the day at the Swap-N-Shop. Dazzle us with your versatility and yummy creativity!
