HalloweeM 42: WeeM, The Universe, and Everything

October 26 – 29, 2017

Shopping

On-site Shopping & Services

Vendors

Attention Vendors!
Our Vendor Coördinator is accepting applications for space at WeeM. Refer to our Vendor Flyer for all the details. PayPal is required to submit your payment. The deadline is October 13th.

Our vendor area will be open again this year, with a fine selection of jewelry, books, and other fun things. Vendors can now sign-up. See our Vendor Flyer for complete information. Submit your completed Vendor Contract Form to our Vendor Coördinator../images/email-regular.s.gif by October 13th. Join our WeeM-Notify mailing list to get additional information about WeeM periodically.

Masseuses

Exhausted? Stressed? Worn out from your travels? There will be three massage therapists to do chair massages in the Vendor area during WeeM. They will be cash only, $15 for a 15 minute chair massage.

Book Sale

Per tradition, we will feature a book and media sale at HalloweeM. Proceeds from this sale go to philanthropic concerns, with a portion benefitting our Gifted Youth program and a portion allocated to an appropriate charity such as Bernie's Book Bank. You can donate your new and used books or media directly at WeeM; bring your donation to the Book Sale area (inside Ravinia, toward the back) at any time on Thursday or Friday. We will gladly accept books of any genre (children's, art, science, math, history, mystery, puzzles and games, cookbooks, romance, fiction, SF and fantasy, non-fiction, religion, occult, biographies, self-help, reference, materials of an adult nature, etc.), along with cassettes (audio and/or video), CDs, DVDs, video games, and books on tape/CD. Most items will be sold for a few dollars or less, so this is a great opportunity to expand your collection!

Please note that we will not accept magazines, vinyl (records), outdated textbooks, or "white elephant" items; any donated items fitting these descriptions will be discarded. Any materials that are not purchased by the end of the gathering will be donated to local libraries, schools, and/or charities as the organizers see fit.

Off-site Shopping

There are several malls within a short drive of the Westin. Unfortunately, there's no notable shopping centers within walking distance. If there is significant interest, we may try to arrange a shopping excursion during the weekend. Check back later in the year for more information or join our WeeM-Notify mailing list to get notified of any updates in this area.
