We're looking forward to seeing everyone on Feb. 29. Some of you have expressed an interest in bringing stuff to the consignment flea market. Please read below for guidelines and important rules for how this will work.
Cash only sales
All items must be priced in whole dollar increments ($7, not $6.50 or $6.99).
You can bring up to five (5) items for consigned sale in the flea market.
What exactly can you bring to drop off at the flea market?
You are basically bringing items for consignment at the Scrum Con flea market. Scrum Con organizers will staff the flea market booth/table during the convention, freeing you up to play games, socialize, etc. You must price and number your item(s) in some way that will adhere to the item(s) you are bringing (i.e., you don't want the price tag or identifying number to fall off the item). Be as creative as you want to accomplish this (sticker, post it note, label tied with string), but make it clear from anybody picking up your item what the price is, and clear to us, the organizers, who we are collecting the money for (by using the assigned item ID numbers).
How do we get these assigned item ID numbers?
Contact us ahead of time at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will give you your own set of five numbers you can use when labeling your stuff. Alternately, we can provide you with item ID numbers when you arrive at the con, but you're going to have to spend some time making sure they're included next to the price on your items' labels.
How do I make sure I get paid for anything that sells?
When you drop your stuff off at the flea market, be sure to give it to a Scrum Con organizer at the booth who will ask you to fill out an envelope with your name, item numbers, and price for each. When we collect money from selling your stuff, we'll check it off on the envelope as "Sold," and put your money in it. When you're ready to leave for the day, come show us an ID with your name on it, ask for your payment envelope, and you can reclaim any of your items that didn't sell.
What does Scrum Con get out of this?
Nothing, really. We are not collecting any sort of commission. We just wanted to give folks an opportunity to sell and buy some stuff like they would at any cool convention.
How should I price my stuff?
Price it to sell! Scrum Con staff can't entertain lower offers on items on any seller's behalf; the price you place on the item is what it will have to sell for.
You consign material to be sold at the flea market at your own risk. Scrum Con staff cannot be held responsible for any items that are broken, damaged, or stolen while they are left in the flea market.
Scrum Con organizers have the right to reject the inclusion of any items as part of the flea market for any reason. The anticipated ways this might happen are if you (1) bring more than five items, (2) don't have loose items contained together in a box of some sort that makes them easy to display and deal with in the flea market, (3) bring something just too large for us to easily accommodate, (4) poor price/item number labeling (illegible, stickers falling off), (5) bring dangerous items (guns, explosives, swords/weapons, trained combat roosters, hazardous biological material), or (5) bring something that the organizers deem potentially offensive to attendees (Nazi regalia, sexually explicit or graphically violent material, etc.). If we decide we cannot include your item in the flea market for any reason, we'll ask you to store it in your car during the duration of the convention. We also are operating under some space constraints for the flea market area, so there will be a first-come, first-to-consign policy (if we run out of room, we may have to ask you to forego selling your items in the flea market area this year).
