Specialists when it comes to tabletop games, their staff will be on site to help you get your games started and animate them (speaking of which, we might have the heard something that sounded like a wolf’s howl).

The flea market will be back for this year’s Nadeshicon!

Following the resounding success of last year’s flea market, we have decided to bring it back, but this time for the whole weekend of the convention! You don’t have any more room for any new figure? Your book-case is starting to make strange noises under the pressure from all your mangas and animes? Come find a new owner for your used japanese pop culture goods! Who knows, you might also find the one missing volume to your collection!

If you would like to sell your items, you will only need to bring them to the location of the flea market during the convention. However, if you wish to bring a lot of goods to sell, we recommend filling this form, printing it and bringing it along with your goods to make the process faster and smoother.

Please note that there will be a 20% service fee on sold items.

See you there!
