ECC Survival Guide!
We’ve put together a handy little guide to help make your June ECC experience this weekend the best one possible!
-Bring cash! There is a bank machine on site that they’ve promised to fill, but there’s no guarantee the machine will stay full throughout the day. So avoid long lines or walks to banks down the street by coming prepared with mucho cashola!
-Pop Culture Roadshow! ECC Director Shane Turgeon was the first certified appraiser in Canada to specialize in pop culture collectibles such as toys, comics, posters, etc so if you’ve got something fun, funky or just plain unknown that you’d like to know the value or history of, bring it down between noon and 1pm and have it looked at! $5 fee per item.
-Wear comfy shoes! While you won’t be packing on the crazy miles you might at a Comic Expo, you will be on your feet for a while so be prepared!
-Parking! The Chateau Lacombe has an attached parkade with over 600 stalls and only charges $2 for the day. There is also ample free street parking in the downtown core on Sundays.
-Make friends! This is an event for the collecting community by the collecting community! We encourage everyone to make some new friends this week and build your local collecting network!
