Just read about this tonight and looking forward to it as a buyer :popcorn:!  One thing that is unclear to me is, are all the items posted at once or updated through out the weekend?

only a few people are generally completely ready to go when doors open I think. Many add things throughout the weekend. Make sure you do not try to buy early as that can put you at the end of the line and you may miss out. After 10 am Sat it is all fair game though.

I am no where near ready, and will be adding things of all eras throughout the weekend more likely than not.

Everything is updated throughout the weekend.
Sellers are welcome to setup whenever they are able throughout the weekend and buyers are encouraged to check back often throughout the weekend as new sellers popup. Discounts often times are offered throughout the weekend as well... so check back often.

I try to list as much as I can for show open, but typically I end up adding 10-20 more books on Sunday. I usually post in the thread when there are new books.

Thanks for stopping by!

@DeadOne is it possible to lock or hide or move the archive during the VCC? When you open the VCC page, it's right at the top. Since many folks are always shocked to learn about the VCC, I'd think a list of old but accessible booths could be confusing and lead to possible attempted buys on old items.

I'm trying to raise some walkaround money for the Boston Comic Con next weekend so I only posted a few items, including a few golden age slabs, a sketch by LB Cole, and a high grade TMNT 1 third print. I may add some more lower dollar books over the weekend if I have time.

I agree. I'll put the word out to the higher ups about finding a way to move or shrink that subforum header. For now though, I've hidden that last couple of years worth of posts and made the one viewable from the header an obviously old Discussion thread from 2017.

Hope this helps

Being in Australia, I am not entirely sure of the time for the opening. Is the convention opened yet or am I still queuing outside with the cosplay crew?

I went through the archive and locked all the old threads.
I then created a thread which I pinned to the top explaining what the VCC Archive is for. With this thread being pinned, it should always be the prevalent one on that subforum banner thing. These steps should help avoid any confusion.

The first buyer posting in a thread. That  has to be a record.

Still hadn't unpacked my booth from the last VCC so I did a quick setup about an hour ago.

Will try to add some new books later on. Good luck everyone! (thumbsu
