Vendor and Visitor Survey
I’d consider it a real solid if you’d take a few minutes to complete this survey. Thanks, friend.
We are working hard to make Oddmall: Emporium of the Weird a truly unique and rewarding experience for everyone involved. As is true of any endeavor, we’ve made some mistakes and had our growing pains in the past, but we’ve learned from them and we’re constantly striving to improve the show. The move to the Knight Center gave us the space we need to make Oddmall the show we’ve always envisioned, our amazing team of volunteers is on the job, and our vendors are among the most creative, talented, and knowledgable denizens of the planet.
Your input is very important to us. Please let us know if you have any ideas, comments, suggestions, love letters, hate mail, advice, or if you just want a shoulder to cry on. We’re here for you.
Frequently Asked Questions (and Answers Thereof)
Here are some questions we’ve been asked and the answers to said questions. If you have a question in need of an answer please email Andy.
Q: What is the difference between the Art Fair and the Geek Expo? I’m not sure where my stuff belongs…
A: The Oddmall Art Fair is reserved for artists and crafters who present work that is primarily handmade and sold by the vendor herself (or himself). The Geek Expo is open to any sort of products, including handmade art and craft. Items in the Geek Expo should ideally fit the themes of Oddmall, in that they are related in some way to the concepts of art, geekiness, science fiction, games, comics, fantasy, horror, toys, collectibles, books, movies, cartoons, anime, clothing, counter culture, or just about anything at all, really. Stuff in the Geek Expo may be handmade, but it doesn’t have to be.
Q: Is it true that Oddmall takes place on two different levels of the JSK Center?
A: Why yes it is! The Geek Expo is located on the main floor of the JSK Center. The Art Fair is a short ride up an escalator (or, if you prefer, the elevator) to the 2nd floor!
Q: How much is it to get in?
A: Oddmall is completely free to the public but a suggested donation of $5.00 is much appreciated! It’s like shopping at a huge craft show, attending a weekend concert festival, and visiting an enormous comic convention without paying the entry fees such places usually charge.
Q: Free! You must be Insane!
A: That’s not really a question, but I’ll respond anyway. Yes, that is correct, I am indeed insane. It has been speculated that we make up for the lack of an entry fee by increasing the prices of our vendor booths. This is NOT the case. Our vendor booths are actually priced considerably less than most other similarly sized craft shows and conventions. To help allay the sizable costs involved in promoting and envenuating Oddmall (Envenuating is a new word I just coined. It means “paying huge amounts of money to place an event in a venue”), we are happy and grateful to accept your generous donations.
