We will have two lines at our store front to assist collectors who are picking up exclusives, one line will be for collectors whose last names begin with A-M, the other line will be for collectors whose last names begin with N-Z. Please make sure that you choose the appropriate line for picking up your items.

When picking up your item, you will be required to show a picture ID as well as your emailed invoice. If you have not received your emailed invoice yet, we ask for your patience as yours may be currently in route to you. If you do not receive it within a week or so, then please e-mail for assistance. ** If you are a Non-Attendee, your orders are estimated to begin shipping the week of May 21st.
