    Greetings! I invite you to come to Novia Market this Sunday at 7 p.m. Central Time. Right where you enter.

    We will be hosting a swap meet. Bring what you want to trade off, or leave it in your bank and get it here. Yell out your stuff! Barter, use gold, use COTOs, get that thing you've always wanted!

    And since I'm a fan of short events, this will last for 1/2 hour only! Come for the mad rush! Trade your stuff! Then go fishing!

    See you there Traders!

    Side note: We have a request to do this in Brittany Alleys next, after that we can move it wherever someone wants to host.

    I really like the "come set up a stall" method as well, but this is intended to be fast, easy, and give people a chance to participate without a lot of time overhead.

    We've streamlined the process, no sign ups, just show up! ;) Bring the good stuff!

    Ok, Novia Market after BA.

    Our first event was a great success! Probably about 1 million gold worth of trades made thanks to a last minute big COTO sale!

    We are planning on doing it next weekend, same time, at Brittany Alleys at @Tristano Visconti 's lot at 7 p.m. Central Time.

    Show up for half an hour of action, get great deals! Sell that useless junk!

    I would like to encourage this to move beyond me. It takes almost no effort other than posting, so if you'd like to host one at your fabulous fish mart, pick an active time for your time zone and make the post.

    Other than advertising, all you have to do is have a remote bank and add people to your lot as "Guest" when they show up. That way they can grab stuff out. Then break the ice ( :) ) by starting to say things like "I've got a Grim Reaper mask, who wants a Grim Reaper Mask?"
