PROOF OF VACCINATION OR NEGATIVE TEST REQUIRED FOR ADMISSION TO MERRY CREEPSMAS

Yes, we will be checking at the front entrance! All our vendors and their assistants have gone through this, and so will you! Let’s not become a Super Spreader Event!

Rapid tests are available – they give you results in 15 minutes. We will accept a pic of the negative test as proof. Write your name /date on the test/slip of paper you can include in the pic.

If you are unvaccinated and unwilling to test that is your right. We will miss you at this Oddmall and look forward to seeing you when these measures are no longer needed.

Please support your local crafters and artists! At the website listed below you will find a link to our vendor list. If we were provided with a website, their name will be a clickable link taking you to their site. https://oddmall.co/merry-creepsmas-2/#vendors

Be assured the positive feedback we have received regarding the proof of vaccine requirements FAR OUTWEIGH the negative comments on Facebook. I’ve put up 200 signs – I’ve talked to a LOT of people. I’ve posted in many local groups, people are EXCITED to come to Oddmall!!!

There are several digital options for if you don’t want to carry your V-card around with you, our personal favorite is http://www.myirmobile.com – You’ll have a digital PDF of your Vaccination Certificate in under 5 minutes!

Captain Slinky Presents Oddmall Emporium Of The Weird MERRY CREEPSMAS Between-The-Holidays Art, Craft and Gift Show is November 13-14 at the Evergreen State Fairgrounds in Monroe, Washington. Hours are Saturday 10am-6pm and Sunday 11am-5pm. Be sure to bring your Proof of Vaccination or a negative Test Result from within the last 72 hours OR YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED IN! You may THINK you can argue your way in and/or convince us we are wrong, and that’s your right – but you aren’t getting in without the stated requirements.

And if you’re thinking you need to sneak in, to protest, to scream, to make a fuss, I would ask that you please take a step back and look at yourself – are you REALLY about to make this Craft Show be the battle you choose to fight?

MERRY CREEPSMAS IS THIS WEEKEND (NOV. 13-14) ARE YOU READY?!?

The Krampus has been contained, the juggler has been primed, the door prizes have all been wrapped – all we need now is like over 100 Odd Vendors and a fistful of food trucks and – OH WAIT! WE HAVE THOSE READY, TOO!!! You should totally come! Captain Slinky Presents Oddmall Emporium of The Weird MERRY CREEPSMAS Between-The-Holidays Art, Craft & Gift SHow, November 13-14 at the Evergreen State Fairgrounds in Monroe, WA – Building 600, The Don Britton Livestock Pavillion! Here… here’s a map!

The Don Britton Livestock Pavillion is on the East Side of the Evergreen State Fairgrounds, so the easiest and most direct access is to turn on to Cascade View Drive – if you’re using a GPS Map Thingee to get here, just put in that you want to go to the Western Heritage Center in Monroe, it’ll take you right there.

MERRY CREEPSMAS IS ONE WEEK AWAY!!!

One week from today (as I am writing this), vendors from across the great Pacific North West will be making their way to the Evergreen State Fairgrounds in Monroe, Washington, to set up their booths and be ready for the crowds of rabid, spend-thirsty customers that will descend upon our humble little Oddmall.

It’s the first new Oddmall of the decade, the first new Oddmall under new management, and the first Oddmall of the Pandemic. I’ll admit it, I’m nervous! Did I do enough promoting of the event? Did I do too much? Will people show up? WHat if the weather is terrible? Let me go check the Weather App real quick… BAH! We live in WESTERN WASHINGTON! Everything further out than 3 days from now is ALWAYS “MId to low 60’s with a chance of rain” – YOU ARE NO HELP, WEATHER APP!

Okay, well… guess there’s nothing to do but worry? If anybody needs me, I’ll be over here next to my anxiety, breathing deeply into this paper sack. Because everything’s going to be just fine!

Update from Oddmall HQ

Hello everyone!

This is David, the founder of Oddmall Emporium of the Weird in the PNW in 2013. My Brother Andy Hopp founded Oddmall in Akron, Ohio in 2009 and has produced over 40 Oddmall shows in Ohio. I want to give everyone an update on our future plans. I have stepped back from show production and I am now focusing on expanding the Oddmall Emporium of the Weird footprint to other areas of the state and eventually other states thru-out the United States by finding awesome people with an interest in event production to run shows under the Oddmall Emporium of the Weird banner.

You may have noticed that our upcoming show November 13 & 14, 2021 is being promoted as Captain Slinky presents: Oddmall the Emporium of the Weird! Captain Slinky who will be taking over and running shows going forward in what we are calling Region 1 of Washington State. Captain Slinky (aka Brian Pierce) has been vending at Oddmall since 2014 and is most known for his Weird Lamps. Brian will be running several shows a year going forward (a new show announcement will be forthcoming in November after he gets the first show under his belt.) in Region 1 which covers the areas of Everett North to Canada and the City of Renton. Look for more announcements for this region in the new year.

I would also like to announce that Esther Chillicut will be the show producer for Region 2 which encompasses Bremerton and surrounding areas, areas surrounding Tacoma (Puyallup, Auburn, Spanaway) and the Olympic Peninsula. Esther has been a big part of Oddmall from the start in 2013 and has helped me with so many things during shows I can’t even count them all. Esther has been a huge part of making Oddmall successful and she has many ideas to make Oddmall an even more amazing experience for all such as celebrity guests, 3 day shows that include panels and workshops and more! Esther hopes to have her first show this coming February. Stay Tuned!

We are actively seeking show runners for Regions 3, 4,& 5 of Washington. These regions occupy the following areas.

Region 3 – Seattle, West Seattle, Bellevue, Lynnwood Issaquah, Hwy 2 from Gold Bar to Wenatchee, and I-90 East to Ellensburg

Region 4 – I-90 after Wenatchee, Tri Cities, Walla Walla, Yakima, and Spokane south to the Oregon border

Region 5 – South West Washington that includes Centralia, Chehalis, Vancouver and surrounding areas.

If you are interested in more information about hosting an Oddmall Emporium of the Weird in your region, please contact me at Oddmallseattle@gmail.com

The future looks bright!

David

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!

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 oddmallseattle@gmail.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 – csoddmall@gmail.com – 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,

David Hopp
Oddmall PNW Founder and Manager
