Rose City Comic Con Wrap-Up!

Rose City Comicon

This past weekend was our first time vending at Rose City Comic Con in Portland, OR, and it was a blast! So much excellent cosplay (some of which you can see over on Raven’s Wrap-Up post), geeky people, and fun guests. We had quite a blast chatting with all of you! Here are some photos from our weekend:

We gave out 300 swag bags full of autographed goodies, coloring pages, and a chainmaille dangle made from maille that was created for NASA’s Mars Insight mission. The pieces were highly limited in quantity so those who got one were quite lucky!

Jet City Comic Show Wrap-Up

This past weekend was the Jet City Comic Show in Tacoma, WA, where we had a booth in the dealer’s hall next to our friends at Clockwork Dragon.

Books and Chains booth

Not only did we have Elise’s chainmaille pendants, but we also had hero-themed chainmaille earrings! We had a contest for a fidget toy, which was won by a guest who bought a copy of all Raven’s books. She went home with a lot of loot!

Contest winner

We had a great time and are looking forward to the Oddmall Holiday Show on November 19-20 in Everett, WA. Hope to see you there!

C4 Cancellation

Due to the typhoon scheduled to hit WA state, Books & Chains will not be attending Central City Comicon this weekend.
It is for the our safety and that of our families that we had to make this difficult decision. We apologize for any inconvenience and hope to see you at C4 next year.

Anglicon Wrap-Up

Elise and Raven had a fantastic time at Anglicon 2016! This was our booth at the beginning of the convention.
Anglicon BoothWe came out with 4 boxes of books and left with only 1! Always a great thing to have happen as a vendor.

We ran out of Jelly Babies halfway through Saturday, but our booth dragon laid some “eggs” overnight for Sunday. Besides selling a ton of books and chainmaille jewelry, we met some very amazing Whovians! We definitely hope to be at the next Anglicon in December 2017!

Now to get stock ready for Central City Comicon in Yakima in October!
