How do I sell at the Garage Sale?

Step 1: Register

Complete the online registration form. Once your registration has been processed you will receive a confirmation email and be asked to arrange a drop-off appointment time.

Step 2: Check-in

Please place all your items in a single box (if possible) with your name and address, before dropping off your items.

Go to the front desk of the Convention Centre at your drop-off appointment time. We will go through the items you want to sell to confirm it’s all there. Each item must be listed in your inventory form and each item must also have a set price.

Once your items are confirmed, we will handle the rest from there.

Step 3: Check-out

Step 3 is being updated

On the Sunday of GeeCon, we will process your sold and unsold items and; contact you once they are “Ready for pickup”.

  • If your items are “Ready for pickup” but you don’t pick them by 9pm on the Sunday of GeeCon, these items will be considered a donation to GeeCon.
  • In the event GeeCon is unable to complete your processing by 6pm on the Sunday of GeeCon, we will make arrangements to deliver your funds and unsold items.
