Swap Meet

SNAFU Con Swap Meet!

SNAFU Con's Swap Meet will take place both on Thursday as part of our Day 0 events from 6pm until 9pm and on Friday night from 5pm until 9pm!

Do you have a ton of old toys, manga and anime that you no longer like as much as you used to, but you can't bear to donate it to a thrift store or try to get rid of it at garage sale? Would you like your old loves to go to a new home with someone who will really appreciate how awesome it all is? That, and getting some money to replace it with brand new anime is pretty great, too.

Well this year, you can sign up for SNAFU Con's Swap Meet! If you only want to sell on one day or both, the price is the same, low price as last year!

Covid Information

In addition to the SNAFU Con Covid vaccination policy, which you can read here, N95/KN95 masks are required for all Merchants while they are at their space. We will be enforcing this, if you are not willing to wear a N95/KN95 mask while manning your table, please do not apply this year.

Swap Meet General Information

Swap meet spaces will be 8'x8' floor sections. Merchants may bring a small table, if they wish, but may not spread out past their assigned space.

Spaces will be assigned on a first-come, first serve basis and merchants may reserve up to four spaces. Space will be reserved only upon receipt of a signed contract, full payment of your space, and a zero balance on your convention registration account.

The Merchant may not sell new materials that can be bought in a store or items that are available in the Vendor/Artist Alley hall.

To register for the Swap Meet, visit our online registration system and sign up under the "more options" drop-down menu.


Each swap meet space is $15. If you don't already have a Reno business license, you can sign up for a temporary business license for an extra $20. If you have been approved for an Artist Alley table and have already purchased a temporary business license, you don't have to purchase another one.
