Rules and Procedures
To reserve a booth (or multiple booths) please fill out the form above. If you prefer to pay by check or arrange some other method please email Andy and we’ll work it out.
Check the Vendor List before picking your booth number to make sure it’s not already reserved. If you happen to choose a booth that is already reserved, we will do our best to get you a booth in the same general area. Also, please familiarize yourself with the policies and practices listed on this page before signing up (especially if you are food vendor).
The map is updated Monday through Wednesday.
**Due to the large number of vendors who sign up for a booth and never send a payment,we are no longer able to hold booths without payment. Please submit your payment WITH your signup form. (If you are mailing a check, please mail it as close to submitting your form as possible.) **If your name is not on the vendor list or if it has a star, we have not received your full payment.
Canopies, Tables, and Chairs
Vendors are responsible for bringing their own tables, chairs, blankets, etc… We strongly suggest you bring a tent or canopy to protect you and your goods from the sun and wind. ALL TENTS AND CANOPIES MUST BE CONSTRUCTED OF FLAME RESISTANT MATERIALS AND MUST BE ASSEMBLED ACCORDING TO THE MANUFACTURER’S INSTRUCTIONS (by order of the fire marshall). All tents and canopies must be held in place by stakes or weights in a manner compliant with the manufacturer’s instructions.
You are welcome to bring your own battery powered generators, but since this is an outdoor show we can not provide electrical hookups. No gas powered or loud generators will be invited.
Important note about vendor spaces
Each booth will be mapped out prior to setup. Vendors are required to stay within their booth’s footprint. Walkways are measured ahead of time to comply with safety and fire codes as determined by the fire marshal. Spilling into the walkways can become a serious issue that can result in injury and/or fines. Taking up space in your neighbor’s booth is not allowed without their consent.
Vendors are NOT permitted to call out across other booths or walkways to people passing by to try and get them to come to your booth, offer them free samples, get them to sign up for raffles, hawk your wares at them, etc. We’ve had several complaints and this behavior will no longer be tolerated since it causes customers and visitors to actively avoid the area all together and ruins the experience for everyone. Vendors doing this may not be invited back to future Oddmalls.
In order to ensure the quality and appropriateness of items displayed at Oddmall: Emporium of the Weird – Rubber City Rumpus we have instituted a jurying system. If you have been a vendor at previous Oddmall shows you are automatically accepted and do not need to pass the jury process a second time (unless you are a scammer or one of those guys who claims to be running a sweepstakes wherein people can win a free vacation but is actually just a way to trick people into paying for condos).
The following items ARE allowed in WITHOUT having to be juried:
Art being sold by the creator or a direct representative of the creator
The following items are allowed in on a limited basis and are subject to jurying:
Direct Sales Goods (Origami Owl, Pampered Chef, etc…).
Home Improvement Products (Leaf Filter, Bath Fitter, etc…)
Anything with safety concerns (open flame, sharp edges, etc…)
Food and Drink (see below)
The following items and services are not invited:
Scams posing as official sweepstakes
Any products that promote racism, homophobia, intolerance, hatred, or prejudice
Random garage sale junk
Food items are indeed allowed at Oddmall: Emporium of the Weird – Rubber City Rumpus. However, the purveyors of said food items are solely responsible for any licensing or health code concerns such purveyance entails. Inspectors from the Board of Health will most likely be conducting inspections and we will not be offering refunds to food providers who do not present licenses or who fail inspections.
Heck yeah we want food trucks! If you are a food truck owner or other food service provider (and are properly licensed for such activities) you may reserve your space using the registration form above.
Food Trucks Must be Licensed by the City
All food trucks and food service providers must be properly licensed to operate in the city of Akron.
Due to the various associated cans of worms no alcohol will be served on the premises.
Refunds and Cancellations
Booth fees are nonrefundable unless the reason for the refund is our fault. Please make certain you can attend the show before you submit your registration. This is a Rain or Shine show and will happen regardless of weather conditions.
Vendors are encouraged to decorate their booths in whatever fashion they desire. As long as it fits in your allotted space it’s all good.
By registering as an Oddmall vendor you are giving us permission to use images of you and your artwork in our advertising and on our website. You may opt out of this by emailing Krystal at Krystal@muthaoithcreations.com, although I’m not sure why you’d want to. It’s free advertising for you, after all.
News and Updates
To make sure you’re up to date on all of Oddmall’s happenings – such as important announcements, contests and giveaways, and more – please sign up for our newsletter.
We’ll do our best to make sure you get the booth you reserve, but Oddmall reserves the right to adjust booth assignments as needed based on availability, unforeseen circumstances. The maps represent approximations of the actual layout and no claim of absolute accuracy is made. Please include a first, second, and third choice of booth numbers.
Billing statements will say “Con on the Cob” as the account name. Con on the Cob is a gaming nerd convention that shares the Oddmall account, not a confidence trick, in case you were worried. Both entities are hosted by Mutha Oith Creations.
