On Saturday morning around 11 a.m. I packed up a bunch of Tunnels & Trolls stuff and some Shadowrun stuff and went to Imperial Outpost game store on 49th Avenue and Thunderbird. A big game swap meet was planned for that location and time. Actually, it started at 10, but I didn’t get going that fast, and I should have. Earlier might have been better.
There were a lot of people at the Imperial Outpost–probably the greatest gamers in the western part of the city. I only know a couple of them by name. I got a table. I set up my merchandise. I took some pictures. Here they are.
However, there was minimal interest in my merchandise, and I didn’t sell a thing in about 2 hours. It would have been much more fun just to go as a customer. Sometimes the magic works; sometimes it doesn’t.
A lot of people had a good time at this sale. Darren says he’ll do it again next January. I think he’s missing a bet, and should do it once a month. He’s charging a small fee for table space, and getting a lot of people into his game store–win/win.
If you like to go to swap meets, or ever picked up games on the cheap, why not leave a comment?
