2016 OFFICIAL TABLE SHARING THREAD

Post by Tuberat » Fri Feb 05, 2016 11:45 am

Okay, So I once again regret to say that the alley is officially full.

If you are willing to share space with someone, you are a great human being - there will be instructions to follow.
If you are looking for space from a great human being - this is the place to come to.

PLEASE do not start any other threads about this. please follow these guidelines.
Please also keep in mind that there were about 600 other artists who tried to get in...this thread will get unbearably BIG and not everyone can possibly be accommodated. Please keep your pictures small and stay respectful:

Firstly, you must state very clearly whether you are OFFERING space (and how much you're willing to offer) or if you're LOOKING for space (and please keep your demands/requests reasonable. if someone ONLY has a 6 foot space - and for most people in the alley, that IS the max - they're not likely to even LOOK at your demand for 4 feet - that doesn't mean you have to be stuck at 2, but maybe a compromise could be given)

PLEASE NOTE! URL's are fine if you want to show what you will be bringing to the table or how you plan to display.
NO HUGE PICS in this thread as that will make it hard (or even just clunky) to load! IF PEOPLE ABUSE THIS, I will have their messages DELETED. Last years thread WAS OBNOXIOUS for me to try and sort through or even load. I can't imagine how it was for some less lucky then I with their internet...

Secondly, the person offering space is allowed to seek compensation for the amount of space being given up (BUT THEY DON'T HAVE TO! that is always an option as well) HOWEVER! NO ONE is allowed to accept more money for the space than it is worth. SO DO NOT bother to 'sweeten' your application to gain favor over others by saying "I'll offer you more than he/she is!" cause we won't allow it. There would be repercussions.

Thirdly, If you arrive at an agreement with somebody, then I need to hear about it. And i can't hear about it just from the person who got accepted. I need to hear it from the great human being who is graciously allowing you to share their space (this is a formality to protect people from less than honest folks - of which we don't have any, right?)

Fourthly - be appreciative of the fact that you got space. Not everyone is willing to share their space with total strangers. be respectful of your neighbors and your kind benefactor. do not assume you will have run of the table.

Fifthly - the restrictions of the number of people at a table STILL APPLY! so if you have 2 feet of space and you decide to share it with someone (insane, but who knows!) then you will be UNABLE to have 2 people behind that table at the same time. there just isn't room physically for it to happen. we allow 2 people for every 2 feet of space (meaning that for an 8 foot table you can have 8 people, but only 4 should be capable of sitting back there at any one time - we allow for extra people only so you can get up and walk away for food, panels, bathroom breaks, etc)

Sixthly - if space that has been offered has been taken, please update this thread with that fact. if your space request has been granted, please also update this thread with that fact.

Seventhly (which is apparently NOT a word!)- ANYONE sitting at a table space selling things STILL needs to observe the new tax laws and go through the process as lined out on this page http://www.animeboston.com/exhibits/exhibitor_taxid/

ALSO - no matter HOW you got space, you STILL need to check in at the AA desk when you show up at the con. we will STILL have a badge for you. You are in the alley, all our rules still apply, no matter how you got there.

Lastly - if you have gotten space and you were on the reserve list - we will NOT automatically know this. if space should open up and we contact you then you need to do one or more of the following:

1 - let me know you're all set and don't need the space so we can move on to the next person faster.
2 - let the artist you are with know that you are backing out so they can offer the space elsewhere
3 - And if you take option 2, someone needs to tell me to take you off the table that the great human being allowed you to sit at because you now have your own space and we don't need to make duplicate AA badges.

Good Luck everyone!

I am LOOKING for table space if anyone is sharing. I have 11x17 prints and do onsite digital commissions. Electricity would be a plus (but not required if I have no choice.) Let me know your conditions, Im easy to get along with. Here is a link to some of my work http://iyiythicink.deviantart.com/gallery/

Hello, I am LOOKING for space as well. I would not need more than two feet of space as this will be my first time tabling at an Artist's Alley and I don't have a large stock of items, and I will pay for space per the $20/ft rule. I'm planning on selling some 11x17" prints, 4x6"postcard prints, key chains, and sketch commissions.

I post a lot of my art on my tumblr: http://gayandasleep.tumblr.com/tagged/bad%20fart
but I also have a deviantArt gallery of finished prints and WIPS: http://okurelin.deviantart.com/

Hope we can share a table together!

Hello, I'm looking for a table space. I'd like 2-3 ft of table space of that's possible. I mainly sell Charms, washi tape, buttons, bags, and lanyards. I have a few 11x17 and 8.5 x 11 prints as well if they can fit.

Here's an example of what my setup would be like.

Please pm me if you can spare table space and we'll talk out the details. Thanks for the consideration!

Yep. Facility rule - no stickers. This is not new.

We're including decals in that category.

Hi! I'm a local Boston-area artist looking for a table space. I wouldn't need more than 2-3 feet of space, and would be selling comics (original and "Dumb" parody ones such as this), some prints (original and fan art), and be taking some sketch commissions.

Here's my WEBSITE, where samples of my work are available. If you're willing and interested in having me at your table, email me at eunnie(at)eunnieverse(dot)com! You can let me know here in the thread if you'd like too, but I I can promise a significantly faster reply through email.

Thank you!

Hello, everyone!

I am in a dire need of a sharing space with someone in the Anime Boston's artist alley. I will gladly pay my fair share of the table, of course :)
My portfolio/ website is : http://blackrosestudios.storenvy.com/
I do not take up much room, I promise.
Please, if anybody has the room to share, I would be so appreciative.

Hi, I'm Lauren from Paisley Peacock Body Arts. I squeaked in at the last minute last year, so I have hopes of doing so again. I'm a henna artist looking for enough space for two open 3-ring binders. They can totally go in one column, so that's, what 18" wide or so? I will be happy to pay going rates for the space! The only restriction is that I need to be on the end of the table so people can get in to be drawn on. My most recent work is at https://www.facebook.com/HennaDancer/?ref=hl and you can contact me there, too.

Probably way late, but if anyone has a few feet of space on any particular day that they would be willing to share with me, I'd love the chance to jump in.

I sell miniature amigurumi including animals, pokemon, and cactuses, so I wouldn't be distracting from fanart, poster, drawing commissions, etc type sales!

My etsy is here if you're curious: https://www.etsy.com/shop/smallstuffdolls

My email is theresakmach@gmail.com if you'd be kind enough to share your space with me contact me there, thank you!
