August 13, 2016 (9:00 am to 3:00 pm)
Nepean Sportsplex, Halls A&B
We’re carrying on the tradition of the Ottawa Geek Garage Sales and hosting a geek and gaming garage sale this summer where you’ll be able to buy or sell all sorts of geek and gaming-related items at this one-day shopping event, hooray! Over 2,100 patrons attended our last geek and gaming garage sale in February so we’ve decided to keep our event open a little later in the afternoon this time.
This will also be a great time to purchase your admission tickets for our October 5th Anniversary Geek Market! Buying tickets in advance saves you money! And if you buy your ticket to the October Geek Market, you get into the garage sale for free!
We’re proudly supporting Tysen’s Mission to a Million once again and will have a donation jar for those of you interested in donating money to his very worthy cause.
Would you like to help make the garage sale an even bigger success? Then be sure to sign up as volunteer! We have all sorts of fun positions available. 🙂
Selling geek or gaming items on consignment
Have a few items to sell, but don’t want to man your own table? No problemo! We’ll be accepting all sorts of items related to geekery and gaming on consignment at a rate of 15% meaning that we’ll do the work for you! All of the money raised will be used to pay for the logistical costs associated with running the garage sale (i.e. hall rental, advertising, etc.).
Want more details? Please visit our new webpage that provides information on how sell items on consignment at our garage sale.
Selling geeky or gaming items at your own table
Do you have so many geeky or gaming items to sell that you’d like to purchase and manage your own table? Awesome! Please fill out our vendor application form.
Please note that this IS a garage sale so patrons will be looking for garage sale-type deals. This event is not meant for exhibitors selling new/original art at full price. If you have new/handmade items that you’re looking to sell at full price, we encourage you to apply to be a vendor at the Ottawa Geek Market October event.
Each table space costs $50 and measures 6 feet deep x 8 feet wide and comes with:
- Two exhibitor passes
- One 6 feet x 2.5 feet unskirted table
- Two chairs
Please note that we have a limited number of tables available and will be accepting vendors on a first come, first serve basis.
