February 20, 2016 (9:00 am to 1:00 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 winter to help stave off those evil winter blues! That’s right! You’ll be able to buy or sell all sorts of geek and gaming-related items at this one-day shopping event, hooray! The event will also feature a free open video gaming (and a Smash Bros. tournament) and table top gaming area and is being sponsored by our friends at UsedOttawa.com.
Over 1,000 patrons attended our one-day gaming garage sale in August. We’re doubling the size of the space this time and opening up the sale to all sorts of geeky items, so this event promises to be awesome.
Here’s our floor plan with a list of all our exhibitors.
This will also be a great time to purchase your admission tickets for the April Capital Gaming Expo event. Buying tickets in advance saves you money! And if you buy your ticket to our April event, 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.
Want to help us run the event? If you’d like to volunteer at the event (thanks!) please visit our volunteer page on the Geek Market website.
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 the Ottawa Geek Market’s 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? If so, please fill out the Vendor Application Form found on the Ottawa Geek Market website by February 12th, 2016.
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 April 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.
