SIXTY-NINE-DAYS FROM TODAY (noice) on November 13-14 at the Evergreen State Fairgrounds in Monroe, WA, the Captain Slinky Presents Oddmall Emporium of The Weird “Merry Creepsmas Between-The-Holidays Art, Craft & Gift Show will be happening!!! And what better way to celebrate than to unleash the ALL-NEW, ALL-DIFFERENT, ALL-OFFICIAL MERRY CREEPSMAS WEBSITE! This website has it all and promises to answer all your Merry Creepsmas Questions! Questions like What Is Merry Creepsmas? What kinds of events will be happening there? Who are some of the OVER 100 VENDORS that will be there? How do *I* become a Vendor? What are you doing about COVID-19? How do I get there? Where do I park? ALL THIS AND MORE, in one easy-to-print-for-your-convenience page! We also have an official Facebook Event Page at https://fb.me/e/4BSzDHLfv but I haven’t put much work into that yet – still, could be helpful!
That’s right – WE NOW HAVE AN OFFICIAL TITLE! I know a lot of you loved the “Black Friday Only It’s Saturday & Sunday And It’s Two Weeks Before Thanksgiving Instead of The Friday After Thanksgiving But Okay Y’know What Forget It We Didn’t Think This Title Through” title, but there’s a National Vowel Shortage going on right now and I just couldn’t justify wasting so many vowels on a silly title for our show at a time like this. Maybe back in the 80’s, when you had so many vowels across this great nation of ours you could name your rock band “Kaja Goo Goo”, but in today’s economy? FORGET ABOUT IT!
So WELCOME to MERRY CREEPSMAS! It’s that magical time between Halloween and Christmas, when you can’t decide between Pumpkin Spice and Peppermint Mocha! When you go outside to hang up lights and notice that your Jack-O-Lantern still needs to be tossed in the yard waste bin! When you look at all the Halloween Clearance Stuff and think “Y’know, Uncle Randy would probably REALLY like that Skull-Shaped Candle Holder for Christmas”! When you start realizing that Thanksgiving is just a SPEEDBUMP between the TWO BEST TIMES OF THE YEAR!!!
And so we give you the Merry Creepsmas Between-The-Holidays Show! This is the Oddmall event where you will find the PERFECT gift for the *extremely* Hard-To-Shop-For people on your list! Unique, one-of-a-kind, WEIRD and ELEGANT stuff that you’re not going to find on Amazon or at Walmart! Keep an eye on our Facebook page (Oddmallpnw) for upcoming Vendor Spotlights!
WE’RE BACK, BAYBEEEEEE!!! Click on the banner above to “Apply Directly”!
Spaces for this show are just $200, which gets you a spacious 10’x10′ space for the entire weekend of the show, the Friday Night Set-Up, snacks, drinks, access to our private offices at the event, booth sitting services, and whatever other perks I can come up with between then and now. This right here, though, this is JUST a link to the application – No money, no space selection, no contracts, nuthin’ except YOU introducing us to what it is you plan on showing off and selling at Oddmall. I’m not going to waste all your precious time on reading and filling out a bunch of moot points if you’re not accepted! So what’s gonna happen when you submit an application, is that we’re gonna run it past our esteemed panel of judges and get back to you within 72 hours. If you didn’t quite make the cut, don’t worry – it’s probably just because we already have too many vendors selling similar product! You’ll get a very nice “Maybe next time, champ” email from us. But if you’re ACCEPTED, you’ll get an email with all sorts of Next-Step Stuff! What stuff? I’M SO GLAD YOU ASKED!!!

Hello Vendors & Patrons!
Thank you all for your patience and understanding over the last year and a half. Let’s get right to it!
The Oddmall PNW shows are finally coming back! The next show is going to be at the Fairgrounds, but in a different building. (Our old building will be demolished after this year’s fair. The new building is much nicer, with smooth concrete floors, has bathrooms in the building and will give Oddmall an entire new feel and upgrade.
There are some pretty major changes, including NEW MANAGEMENT of the events in the greater Puget Sound area. When I started Oddmall in the PNW in 2013 I had big dreams of Oddmall across the country, my brother is the creator of Oddmall and started Oddmall in Akron, Ohio in 2009. There have been over 50 Oddmall shows since then. The shows in this area going forward will be run and managed by your fellow vendor/artist Captain Slinky (of Captain Slinky’s Weird Lamps – Aka Brian Pierce). Captain Slinky has been a part of Oddmall since 2014 and Slinky and his family will be taking over ownership of the local shows so I can concentrate my efforts to expand the Oddmall Empire beyond Western Washington!
My plan is to develop different areas of the country to produce more Oddmall events with partnerships from local vendors who would like to have a show in their area. Captain Slinky will be running shows from Everett – Bellingham and in the Snohomish County area as well as Renton. I will be actively seeking people in the near future to run shows from Renton South to Olympia, Centralia – Portland and Yakima, Spokane and Tri-cities as well as Lynwood to Issaquah, (Areas have not been formalized at this time, but the idea is to have multiple shows in the state working together under the Oddmall Emporium of the Weird Banner. Please contact me at email@example.com if you are interested in running shows in your area.
From here on out, all your Oddmall PNW correspondence will be coming from Captain Slinky with a new Oddmall email address. The new email address is – firstname.lastname@example.org – so make sure to read what he sends you as it will have all the information for you about this show and all upcoming shows!
I will still be a part of all shows going forward, but in a more behind the scenes / consulting role. I plan to teach Captain Slinky all I know about how to produce a successful show and I am confident going forward that Oddmall is in the right hands.
I am happy to answer any questions you might have, you can still contact me at Oddmallseattle@gmail.com .
Thank you for 8 years of Oddness,
Oddmall PNW Founder and Manager
More information coming soon!
