Being an anime fan goes hand-in-hand with collecting merchandise. Those adorable plushies and shiny keychains can be impossible to resist, no matter how many piles of them you already have at home. And there's always something new to crave - even if you have to part with some old items to make room for the new ones. There's another anime fan out there who would love to give that classic wallscroll or set of figurines a new home. How do you find them? At ATC's "Akihabara" swap meet and yard sale!
Anime Twin Cities, the non-profit parent organization of Anime Detour, invites you to clear out your closets and fill them back up again at our semi-annual flea market. At Akihabara, fans from all over come together with a wide variety of items for sale or trade. Walk-ins are always welcome, and like many of our events, admission is FREE!
Our expanded summer event takes place in a larger venue and includes pro vendors in addition to the swap meet area.
