You Forgot… It’s About The GAMES!

(Artist Unknown; If you know who did this originally and ISN’T just somebody selling prints of it, let me know so I can credit them)

Well folks, looks like all we have left for the next Captain Slinky Presents Oddmall Emporium of The Weird “SPRUNG” Art, Craft, Gift & Game Show April 29-30 at the Evergreen State Fairgrounds in Monroe, WA, are a fistful of spaces in The Gaming Area, and about half of what’s left there is waiting for replies from various local game publishers! We already have Dunce Cap Games, Thing 12 Games, Counter Clockwork Games, Studio Top Hat, Weird Works LLC and more all there to show you how to ply/use their stuff, as well as some SUPER classy Tabletop-Game-Centric woodwork from Nerdwood and Bored Dragon Woodworking, and of course a few vendors of Dice ranging from hand-made artisanal dice to cheap, plentiful dice! YOU CAN NEVER HAVE TOO MANY DICE!

That’s ONE HUNNERT-N-FIDDY 10’x10′ spaces full of the oddest, awesomest, weirdest artists you’ve ever seen assembled under one roof! You will see things that astound you! Things that mystify you! Things that will make you seriously question YOUR OWN SANITY!!! Also? FOOD TRUCKS!!! Free admission, free parking, free gaming, free FUN! Mark it on your calendar NOW! April 29-30 at the Evergreen State Fairgrounds in Monroe, WA!

And now, an Oddmall message from Dean Pelton of Greendale Community College regarding spaces for our “SPRUNG” Show April 29-30

Well Iā€™m a peanut bar and Iā€™m here to say
There’s only 12 Oddmall spaces left as of today!

Another day, another dime, another rhyme, another dollar
Another stuffed shirt with another white collar!

Criminals, Wall Street, taking the pie
And all the black man gets is a plate of white lies!

Prisons RECRUITIN’ ’em, police be SHOOTIN’ ’em
Rap artists LOOTIN’ ’em! Labels all DILUTIN’ ’em!

Barack Obama is a-SCARED of ME!
‘Cause I don’t swallow knowledge AND I SPIT IT FOR FREE!
LET ME CLEAR MY THROAT, AH HA, HA HA!

Well! As The Dean said, there are only TWELVE VENDOR SPACES left for the big Captain Slinky Presents Oddmall Emporium of The Weird “SPRUNG” Art, Craft, Gift & Gaming Show April 29-30 at the Evergreen State Fairgrounds in Monroe, WA! And just NINE SPACES left in the Designated Gaming Area! ACT FAST! Head to http://www.oddmall.co/sprung2apply and get you a space before they’re all gone!

FIXED… AND AN ANNOUNCEMENT!

The Captain Slinky Presents Oddmall Emporium of The Weird SPRUNG Art, Craft, Gift & Gaming Show Vendor Applications are once again OPEN and we are READY to take your applications! Visit http://www.oddmall.co/sprung2apply today! “But Captain,” I hear you saying to your screen, “What does THAT have to do with that big image up there that says Captain Slinky in conjunction with The Sno-Co Toy Show Presents Oddmall Emporium of The Weird CREEPSMAS Part 3: Dawn of The Toys?

Every year, our annual “Between The Holidays” holiday of Creepsmas is our BIGGEST SHOW of the year – we’ve even had vendors SELL OUT OF PRODUCT at these Creepsmas events! It’s gotten SO POPULAR, we end up turning away dozens of vendors every year! So THIS year, we’re kicking it up a notch or 27 by renting out *TWO BUILDINGS*! And so we will have, in the Don Britton Livestock Pavilion (the building we have had every post-pandemic show in thus far), the Sno-Co Toy Show with over a hundred vendors selling you toys, collectables and other great Holiday Gift Items that probably won’t be hand-made… and then next door in the giant EVENT CENTER we will have nearly TWO HUNDRED MORE VENDORS selling you the same weird-o art, craft, gift and whatnot you’ve come to love and expect from your old pal Captain Slinky and our little Crafttacular Freak Show!

This is, of course, a HUGE RISK. But it sounds SO COOL! The paperwork is already signed! The wheels are more than in motion! Many of you know that we have made a vow to never, EVER promote or sell an event we don’t have 100% certainty of moving forward with, and by golly we are moving FORWARD!

“Okay, Slinky, you’ve got my interest; how do I sign up?” I’M SO GLAD YOU ASKED! YOU CAN’T! YET!

HOWEVER! Those who have signed up for a space at either our April 29/30 Oddmall SPRUNG show or the May 27th Sno-Co-Toy Show will have FIRST CRACK at the spaces for CREEPSMAS! You’ll get full week head start to choose your spaces – you all want corner spaces, right? THIS is your best chance at getting a corner!

Head on over to http://www.oddmall.co/sprung2apply to get a space at our SPRUNG show, or to http://www.snocotoyshow.com and get on the list! HURRY! You won’t want to miss this one!

THE SYSTEM… IS DOWN

It looks like the next Captain Slinky Presents Oddmall Emporium of The Weird SPRUNG Art, Craft, Gift & Gaming Show April 29-30 at the Evergreen State Fairgrounds in Monroe, WA was just too much for the third-party payment processing service we use to handle! MORE VENDORS SIGNED UP IN JANUARY THAN WE HAVE EVER SIGNED UP FOR ANY PREVIOUS ODDMALL, and it broke the system! It’ll take till February 1st for it to be resolved, so till then application approvals are ON HOLD. Also, it seems I’ll be searching for a more robust payment processing service šŸ˜‰

APPLICATIONS ARE STILL OPEN, you just won’t hear from us till Wednesday February 1st. Sorry for any inconvenience!

“SPRUNG” T-SHIRTS AVAILABLE FOR A LIMITED TIME!

Captain Slinky Presents Oddmall Emporium of The Weird “SPRUNG” T-Shirts available in our Etsy shop till the day after SPRUNG (May 1st)! Look at that gorgeous Zachary “Goodbye Zach” Diaz artwork! And he gave us THREE COLOR OPTIONS, too! I couldn’t decide which one I liked best, so I put them all up for sale! Click the image or go directly to https://www.etsy.com/shop/captainslinky to order yours in sizes all the way up to 5XL because I am a Big Boi and I need a Big Shirt! The 4XL fits me great! And we keep these shirts cheap by placing our profit margin *low* on them, I think we make like a buck per shirt? Go get one! Let everyone know that YOU were at ODDMALL!

And of course, if you want to apply to be a vendor at the Captain Slinky Presents Oddmall Emporium of The Weird SPRUNG Art, Craft, Gift & Gaming Show, head on over to http://www.oddmall.co/sprung2apply and fill out a free application!

Art by Goodbye Zach

Applications are now open for the next Captain Slinky Presents Oddmall Emporium of The Weird show, “SPRUNG 2“! This is our annual show that is focused on tabletop, card and board games so that’s the type of vendors we’re looking for – as well as our usual assortment of anyone who makes weird, unique, bizarre stuff. Don’t feel like you quite fit in at the Elks Club Ladies Auxiliary Craft Show & Bake Sale with your drawings of screeching weasels or bedazzled cow skulls? COME TO US! WE LOVE YOU!

TAKE PICS; WIN PRIZES!

In previous years, we have offered a semi-professional photographs with Krampus to all our customers, but there were some pretty major flaws and delays in the system which meant there were a lot of folks who just never got their pictures! That’s why THIS YEAR, we’re doing things a bit differently – YOU CAN TAKE YOUR OWN DANG PICTURE!

No, SERIOUSLY! We all walk around with these thousand-dollar digital photography studios in our pockets that we call “Phones”, right? Well let’s use them! We will have one of our people right there in the Lobby with Krampus and his Brats ready to take as many pics as you like WITH YOUR OWN PHONE! And there you have it! No waiting for digitization, no uploading, no download codes, just “Hey now I have a picture of ME AND KRAMPUS” and then you post it to your favorite Social Media Platform!

Because we live in The Future!

Oh, and you could win some of the weirdest prizes, too, just by tagging us in your post! Did I forget to mention that? YEAH! Take your picture with Krampus, Squatcho Man, Monoculon or Doc! Post it! Tag us (INSTAGRAM: @csoddmall FACEBOOK: @OddmallPNW, or just use the hastag of #Creepsmas2 on any other social media platform) and you could be walking away with a prize worth more than FIFTY DOLLARS! Three times this weekend – Once on Saturday, Twice on Sunday) I will make an announcement over the loudspeakers. All you’ll have to do is show us your post where you tagged us or used the hashtag, and YOU WIN!
