As the name suggests, a Trade is something you’ve created and then give to another attendee who then gives you one of their little creations. Trades may be little pins, artist trading cards (ATCs), bookmarks, embellishments, a small book, etc.

Trading Sessions are scheduled times when attendees are encouraged to meet one another to trade. You may also trade at events, in the hall, etc. It’s a great way to meet people and to see a variety of small works of art.

Many attendees do not participate in trades. We like to encourage everyone to try trading, even if you only bring a few items to trade. It’s a great way to meet people and to see a variety of art!
