(almost)Everything you need to know!!!
FREE AND ALL AGES!FREE AND ALL AGES!FREE AND ALL AGES!!!
Whats up Family!
Let me start off by saying that we are very humbled by the OVERWHELMING response we have gotten from the sneaker community in regards to Sneaks Up 3 both by those that participated last year and also by the fresh faces that will be at the show this year.
The S.A. Sneaks up Sneaker show 3 is a celebration of sneaker culture.Not just us heads here in San Antonio, but ALL of us throughout Texas.We want to incorporate every cities' scene in our show because without the love and support flowing from all of us,we would not be able to put on a successful events(Dallas's Kixpo,Htown sneaker summit,Freds closet,ectLOL.)
So here are the guidelines and info regarding Sneaks Up 3:
San Antonio Sneaks Up Sneaker Show 2 Sunday April 26,2008
san antonio,tx 78230
Call me for directions or a place to stay
-First and foremost this is NOT a buy/sell/trade/event.If you have pairs that you wish to sell,we ask that you do it discreetly and if at all possible off site.While we cannot stop you from b/s/t ,we cannot encourage it.We want Sneaks Up 3 it to be more of a celebration of sneaker culture than that of a "dunk exchange".
-Please NO price tags on shoes. Again,this is not a b/s/t event so we want to take as much of that element out as possible.Sneaks Up 2 is more of a showcase than a swap mart!LOL!
-This year we would like to see some creativity when it comes to displays not just shoes on a table.Kinda like a cross between sneaker pimps and the awesome displays from last year.Let your love for sneakers show!! you might even win a prize!!!!!
-We will be charging a 5$ display fee per table to help cover our costs of the show and the renting of the tables.This is payable upon arrival but if you wish to pay prior we can make arrangements as well.
-If you are an a local vendor with your own apparel,We will be charging a vendor fee of 50$ dollars in order for you to sell your line at the show(This will also help pay for the show.)We feel this is reasonable and will be easy to recoup at the show, just be sure to bring enough product to sell and if you would like to submit some apparel for our raffle that would be even better.
You know that if you attended the last two shows,we gave multiple shout outs and props throughout the show to participates and it will be 10 fold this year!!!
The selling of apparel has been a heated subject with the SU3 planning committee but I believe we have reached some common ground.If you are a vendor please get with me ASAP so that we can talk about what you are selling as we would like to keep it as tasteful as possible.Remember Sneaks UP 3 is self promoted and put on mostly by us S.A. heads with little or no big sponsors...we try to keep it gully as possible!
-And I know I dont have to say it but you know some knuckleheads out there need to know...NO FAKES NO JAYMAN SPECIALS.....period.
-Local artists are welcome to show their pieces on the walls.Please make them graf and sneaker oriented.If at all possible please email me a copy so that we can work on placement.Remember we are a showcase of all things sneakers so please try to keep that in the common theme.Sneaks Up is nothing with out our Graf heads.
- AND YES THE BBOYS AND BGIRLS WILL BE THERE IN EFFECT.Much love to voodoo.....
-If you are interested in a table please contact me ASAP with your contact info(name,sceen name,any message board you are on,phone number,collection summary,etc)these spaces will go fast!!!!!
