Can I buy an Artist Space at Nine Tails?Artist Spaces are only available online through this website. You can not buy them in stores.
Can I purchase additional spaces under my name or a family member in my household? Can I request to be assigned next to someone?You will be only allowed to purchase one Artist Space total. If you purchase a second space under your name or household, even if it is for a second group/friend/family member, then you will be refunded for all purchased spaces and banned from future Mini-Mini Con events.

We will not be taking requests to be assigned next to another artist space or to a specific location. All assigned artist spaces are final. You will not be allowed to merge Artist Spaces.

Violations will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Violators will be asked to leave without a refund and banned from future Mini-Mini Con Events.
Do I check in for my Artist Space?You do not have to check-in with Mini-Mini Con staff for your Artist Space. Your space will be taped off and a sign will be placed within your space with the artist name used during registration. We will stop by when the convention starts to confirm your space, drop off badges and spot-check your Sales Tax ID (please have it readily available).
Do you have a Wait List after all Artist Spaces are sold?No. Once they're sold out that's it. If you ask, you will be redirected to this very answer. We never have, never will, and never in the future have a wait list.
Do you offer any carts to bring in our stuff? Do you provide any volunteer assistance for load-in/load-out?No. Artists are responsible to haul in their setup using their own carts.
Do you provide security?Security is available at the event location. Wonderland of the Americas security will be on-hand if you run into an issue that requires their assistance. A police station with quick response time is across the street as well if needed.
Does it include a table and chairs?Tables and chairs are not included. Artists must bring in their own. We do not have any available to rent.
How many badges are issued with an Artist Space.We do not issue X number of artist badges per space. When we stop by the space we will ask how many are needed. This is to allow attendees and staff to know that the artist is a valid seller at Mini-Mini Con.

  • Low Traffic Areas (Upstairs / Downstairs): $60.00 (62 Spaces)*

However, taking licensed artwork/logos that are copied off the internet without making any alterations then slapping it on products is considered infringing which we will not tolerate.
