The Anime Swap Meet is back!

Is your display case getting cluttered? Is it time for that old manga to find a new home? There’s no time like now to refresh your space, clear some clutter, and make some cash (or find new things to add to your collection!). The Anime Swap Meet is a part of the Hawaii Collector’s Expo, and is intended for people to sell their gently used goods and collectables (that’s why it’s at the Collector’s expo!).

End of the Anime Swap Meet

You must stay at the show from opening to closing. The venue does not allow early pack-out. You may however, only stay for one day or the other if you so choose, but there will be no discount provided (so it will be $25 whether or not you stay for both days). Moving of any items into and / or out of the venue must occur only before the show opens or after it closes, so please plan accordingly.

If you choose to leave on Saturday before the show closes (and are planning to be back on Sunday), you may do so at your own risk. Completely covering your space with a sheet is a good deterrent but no security of goods guarantees are given.
