GBACG Costumers Bazaar 2017

Sunday, August 20th, 2017 -- 1:00pm – 5:00pm
Veterans' Memorial Building, Albany, CA

Do you have things in your closets or on your bookshelves that might need to find a new home? Are you looking for fabulous fabrics, trims or patterns? Maybe you're interested in some great new or used costume items?

If the answer to any of the above is “yes”, you MUST join us at the GBACG Bazaar on Sunday August 20th!

Come rent a space and sell your gently used or new items. Or come and shop for your next great set of gloves, or a hat, or a whole outfit. Sign up to be a vendor here!


This event is FREE for anyone to come and shop! This is a great destination for new and experienced costumers alike. Attendees don't need to re-register but we'd love to know if you're attending!

Call for Vendors CLOSED

Booth sales will take place in two phases: CLOSED

  • Phase 1 - From now until July 21st: A single booth space may be bought by any person who was a GBACG member as of June 1st 2017.
  • Phase 2 - From July 22nd until all spaces are sold: Sales are open to any GBACG member (including anyone who has joined or renewed after June 1st, 2017) and to any current member of a Sister Organization. Also, anyone who has already purchased a space may purchase an additional (2nd or 3rd) space.

Why have two phases? Last time we had a lot of folks join the Guild the day of ordering a booth, and we had other people who ordered multiple booths. As a result, space was quickly snapped up, and some longtime members missed out on a chance to reserve a selling space. In order to give everyone a fair chance at space, we're limiting initial reservations for a few weeks.

What to sell? Well, if you loved it, then perhaps others will too. Some of the most popular items at our last Bazaaar were new and used costumes, vintage pieces and accessories.

Booth spaces are limited and will be sold on a first-come, first served basis.

Booth sizes:

  • Main room: 6’ x 8’ = $20
  • Side room: 6’ x 6’ or 5’ x 8’ = $15
  • Foyer: 4’ x 8’ = $15


  • 11:00 - Setup volunteers arrive.
  • 11:30 - Vendors arrive.
  • 1:00 - Sales open to the public.
  • 5:00 - Vendors breakdown.
  • 6:00 - We must be completely out of the building.
