Got some old anime stuff you don’t want anymore? Maybe you’re just looking for a killer deal on some gently used anime goods? Either way, come check out the SacAnime Swap Meet, where one otaku’s trash is another one’s treasure!
The Summer 2013 Swap Meet will take place Friday from 9pm to 12am, in the Magnolia Ballroom (Registration Area) at the Sheraton. Spaces are $10 each, and CASH ONLY payment for accepted applications will be due the night of the Swap Meet.
Please note that swap meet spots are not intended to be used as a replacement for a vendor’s room table. The items you offer should be your own personal possessions, not items packaged specifically for resale.
