On November 29, 2019 Nix Comics will be running a Black Friday Pop Up Shop at Kafe Karryout, 2240 N. High Street. (Right next door to Kafe Kerouac). I will be selling indie comics, zines, records, books and related artwork.
In addition to the comics, zines, records, books and art that I normally sell, I would like to offer up some space in the shop to indie and DIY creators. NOTE: This is NOT going to be a "tabling" event: I need artists to get me inventory in advance of the sale, pick up merchandise after the sale and I will be running all of the sales and taking a percentage cut of the total.
You can let me know you're interested by filling out the form here:
In order of importance to me, these are the time of items I would be interested in selling for you:
Music themed material over other genres
Local over national
Comic Books/Graphic Novels/Minis
Original art: drawings or paintings
Other (I'm willing to consider other items... Just ask me!)
I don't have a fully drafted letters of agreement for artists yet, but here are the likely terms:
Sales will be split 60/40 in the artist's favor. (60% goes to you, 20% goes to the host venue, 20% goes to Nix Comics.)
I will start accepting actual merchandise in October. The deadline for getting me items will likely be the Friday before the sale.
No more than 3 copies of any one title.
All items must be received with price clearly displayed on the cover/front.
Pieces of art (original or print) will be displayed in a flip box or crate, so must be in plastic sleeves or equivalent protection and have a hard backing.
Pay for items sold will be sent via paypal within a week of the pop up ending or in cash upon pick up of left over merch.
I will not distribute "freebies" for you. If you have promotional items to give away, come to the pop up and schmooze people as they come in.
