"Bitz" Trading

This is my first Adepticon and it's a bit of a haul from where I'm at in Iowa to Chicago, so I want to make sure I've got my ducks in a row here.

I see that there is time set aside for bitz trading on Saturday night, when I'll be staying over. I don't have many bitz I'd feel like parting with, but I have a number of rulebooks, Black Library novels and a collection of Star Wars Rebel Storm miniatures I'd like to try to unload. Can someone explain to me the layout of the the trading? Am I going to feel like/look like/be a jack-ass for showing up with a "small shop" of odds and ends and taking up 10x the space while everyone else will just have a small pile of bits?

Not at all. People wheel and deal all sorts of stuff. We basically clear out a few rows of tables in the Grand Ballroom after the large 40K events wrap up and people just throw their stuff down somewhere and start selling/trading. You'll find all sorts of stuff there. Granted most of it will be miniature wargaming related, but I have sold boardgames, books an like in the past.

Thanks for the quick response, Matthias!

So, with that in mind, I'm guessing the wisest thing for me to do would be to inventory everything up and post it up on here, that way people can speak up ahead of time if they want something.

You don't have to. Part of the fun of bitz trading are the surprises.

This will also be my first visit to Adepticon and I have some boxes of sealed oop warhammer items, Am I allowed to sell these? Or is this Trade only?

i went through all my stuff as i have played with and tested differnt things and now they sit on the shelf or in a box. Do you guys think it OK to bring all my old D&D books to sell? i have lots of 1st ed all the way up to today's I didnt want to lug out cases of old mint condition books to have to drag them back again.

See you all there.
