Just putting it out there.
Item registration closes on the evening of July 28, 2019. Get all your items added by this weekend.
There is no on-site registration (other than items donated for the charity auction).
Entering them and printing the labels is what "Registers" them correct?
If I enter items, I won’t be able to drop them off until around noon on Thursday. Will that allow them to get auctioned later in the day Thursday, or will they go up Friday or later?
Should I allow an hour for this?
Depending on what your items are, they may be in a group that does not get scheduled until Friday or Saturday anyway. You can drop items off through Saturday.
There will be a line for sellers with a lot of items, a few items, and usually store only as well.
There is also a waiver you can sign that will speed things up and each item is not individually scanned in.
Most checking actually occurs on Wednesday; later in the day on Thursday would probably be less busy than early.
Board Games, Family Games, Wargames, and RPGs will have at least 1 session (if not more) each day depending on the volume of items in each category that are registered and brought to the convention. That is why there is no real way to get categories and schedules done in advance. Anyone can enter an item in the registration system; there is no guarantee the item will be dropped off at all, or which day. Scheduling is done based on items received/checked in.
Generally, those items that are first in will be in the first category groups that go to the stage as they are sorted and organized.
Found one more thing I have to list tonight, after that I have about 110 labels to put on things..;-)
One more quick question -
Do I drop off items for the consignment store (not for the live auction) at the same place? Booth 130?
I know this is last minute, but can you sell comics? I saw books were permitted, but nothing specifically banning or allowing comics.
I came into a bunch of Knights of the Dinner Table stuff I was hoping to unload.

So, I'll be landing Wednesday around 5:30, and probably won't get to the hotel to retrieve my box of auction/store items (which I'm mailing ahead) until after 6. The schedule says registration closes at 6 on Wednesday, but it also says that's tentative--anyone know if they're usually open until at least 7 most years due to volume? I, also, have a Thursday morning event, and would rather drop my items off beforehand if possible!
Also, I have a mix of auction and store items in my box--will there be two lines to go through, or does check-in handle both and then the volunteers move everything where it needs to go?
First time trying to sell stuff at the auction/store--fingers crossed I cover my hotel bill! :D
There will be a line where you can check both store and stage at the same time.
