Will there be shopping at the ABDC?

Oh my goodness, YES! The ABDC has a collection of hand-picked vendors. See our website for a full list.

What kind of items will be for sale?

The ABDC strives to have a variety of different merchandise, such as music, props, costumes (of various styles and costs), practice wears, and jewelry. We also often have masseuse, tarot readers, and photographers. You can visit the vendors website or facebook page from this full list.

Is shopping free to the public, and if so, during what times?

Yes. Vendors outside the ballroom are free during all the ABDC shopping hours. Vendors inside the ballroom are open to the public for free on Friday from 12:00-5:00 pm; Saturday from 12:30-5:30 pm; and Sunday 1:00-3:00 pm.

Do vendors take credit cards?

Some vendors take credit cards and others do not. It is always a great idea to bring cash.

Does the ABDC take credit cards or only cash/checks?

Yes. The ABDC will take credit cards, but cash is always a safe bet. The ABDC does not accept checks.

Is there an ATM in the hotel?

Yes. The Holiday Inn-Midtown has an ATM in the lobby. But please note that many people do use this ATM and it may become cash-less as the weekend progresses.

How can I vend at the ABDC?

Please fill out the ABDC vendor application and then the ABDC staff will get back to you.

Should I bring a hand truck to bring in my merchandise from my vehicle to the convention?

Yes. Carts at the hotel are in high demand. The Holiday Inn only has two luggage carts for guests to use.
