5th Annual Hamilton Game Swap: Presented by Dorkalicious

Saturday, June 25, 2022
Calvin Christian School
547 West 5th Street,
Hamilton, ON
L9C 3P7

Hi everyone! We missed you all, and are SO happy to be back!
We hope you are well, and ready to shop!

What is a Game Swap?
It's a multi-vendor indoor garage sale in which you can buy / sell / trade your games, consoles, memorabilia, etc. and have the ability to shop from MANY other sellers!
Retro, current, new & used games are all welcome.

How much is admission?
Admission to the sale is FREE!

When is the event?
This is a one-day event on Saturday, June 25, 2022 from 12PM-3PM.

Where is it?
This year we are gonna be HUUUUUGE!
We have rented out the DOUBLE GYM at The Calvin Christian School
(547 West 5th Street, Hamilton, ON, L9C 3P7).
More space = More vendors! We are goin' all out this year!
This venue is absolutely lovely, has a big parking lot, beautiful outdoor section, wheelchair accessible, nearby highway access, restaurants, banks, and is reachable via public transit.

How can I sell my items?
You can purchase a full 6FT table rental for $65, or half table for $35.
Tables must be pre-paid via emt IN FULL. (This is Non-refundable).

How can I promote my event at your swap?
If you are coming to our swap SOLEY to promote your event (no selling), you can purchase a full 6FT promo table rental for $100 (or $50 for half table). Promo tables will be located in their own section. Promo tables must be pre-paid via emt IN FULL. (This is Non-refundable).
If there is overflow, we can put you on a waiting list, but we need to know you are coming first.
**no same-day tables will be available; all tables must be purchased in advance**

How do I pay for my table?
We are a well respected and established event; that being said, you must pay via EMT, in full, in advance. We will not accept payment same-day at the venue, as many people have no-showed over the last 5 years. Please email Lydia at: lid5@hotmail.com or post your table request on the FB group for payment instructions.

How can I trade my items?
If you are wanting to trade your items without purchasing a table, you can bring them in a clear Tupperware container; this will indicate to others that you're open to trades, and you may walk the floor of the swap to see if there is any interest. You can also trade with vendors as well (at their discretion). Please be respectful of people's space, as well as those who have rented tables, as their financial contributions help pay for the all costs associated with this event.

-On the day of the sale-
Sellers: arrive at 11AM with all of your items pre-priced.
You will then be assigned a table to display your items to sell.
Please bring a money float & (optionally) bags, as you will be responsible all transactions at your table.
Regarding electricity, there aren't any electrical outlets available in the gym, so please account for this by having all electronic devices charged prior to the event.
Buyers / Traders: No Buyers or Traders will be admitted before 12PM. You may form an orderly line, but no "early birds". As this is a community event, we are asking everyone to be respectful. Anyone displaying rude and aggressive behavior will be asked to leave and escorted from the premises.

Caveat emptor (Latin term for "Buyer Beware"). Please inspect all your items before purchasing. If there are any issues, please speak to the seller directly at the swap. While we can try to put you in contact with the seller post-swap, it's better if you can resolve any issues same-day.
The main purpose of this event is to foster a positive gaming community in Hamilton.

Are there any restaurants nearby?
Yes - There are many restaurants on Upper James (parallel to West 5th), such as Charlie Chopsticks, Tim Hortons, Subway, Pizza Pizza, Wendy's, A&W, Quizznos, Pizza Hut, and many more.

Is this a Cash Only sale?
Each vendor is responsible for handling transactions at their table. While they may have access to electronic payments, to err on the side of caution, please bring cash.
If you need access to an ATM, there are many banks on Upper James (parallel to West 5th), such as TD, RBC, CIBC and Momentum Credit Union.

Is it accessible by bus?
Yes - Please use the #35 College Bus, as it stops right in front of the school.
Northbound: Stop#2928 - West 5th Opposite Marlowe Drive
Southbound: Stop #2904 - West 5th At Tyrone

Is it wheelchair accessible?
Yes - This venue is all one level.

Are you looking for volunteers?
Yes - We specifically need strong volunteers to physically help set up / strike down tables; please email Lydia at: lid5@hotmail.com or post on the FB group for any volunteer opportunities. (You will be rewarded with applause, pop and pizza, lol).

Any additional questions or concerns, please email Lydia at: lid5@hotmail.com or post on the FB group.

Please share this event as much as possible, the more the merrier!
Looking forward to it, see you there!
