Special Vendors @ GOB

Special Vendor Events @ GOB

Michigan's Largest game store, with nearly 200,000 games, comics and pop culture merchandise wants to bring even more unique items to our customers. This is your chance to sell your own unique goods to our customers.

GOB Retail is looking for Special Vendors that are interested in selling their goods at periodic events to be held at GOB Retail in Clawson, MI.

What is a Special Vendor?

A special vendor is a person or company that has unique merchandise to sell that is not typically stocked and sold inside GOB Retail currently, and which may be of interest to GOB's customers. That may mean a direct association with things game, comic or pop culture related. This is a newer program, so we are leaving it open to broad interpretation at this time.

How it Works:

GOB has a large game room adjacent to its retail floor space. We have reconfigured it so a series of tables closest to the retail floor can be used for our special vendors to set up their items for sale. Purchase tickets are generated by the vendor and the customer brings the items with the purchase ticket to ring up at the GOB checkout stations. The special vendor and GOB split the proceeds. Sort of like vending at a convention or fair, but you handle the selling and we process the sale.


We do not have established dates and times currently. This will likely be vendor specific. If a special vendor with a large enough catalog of merchandise approaches us and we believe that catalog and type of goods would be a large enough draw for our customers, we may schedule a special vendor event with just that vendor. Otherwise, it may require bringing several special vendors together under a themed event before we can schedule a special vendor event. Generally these events will be held on a Saturday afternoon, approx 1pm to 8pm or so.

What Types of Merchandise

We are open to considering a wide range of items that we believe may be of interest to our customers. It has to be merchandise we do not stock currently, though it may be possible with a strong special event showing we could consider entering a regular vendor relationship and stocking your items moving forward. Below is just a short list of potential merchandise. It is far from an exhaustive list.

    Assorted Pop Culture nick nacks
    3D Printed Minis, Game Accessories, etc.
    Special crafts
    Used Miniatures (Warhammer and others) we don't buy/sell normally
    Painted Miniatures
    Indie Comic Publishers
    Fantasy/Sci Fi/Pop Culture artists with Prints/Merchandise

There are, of course, a myriad of things we have not thought of or considered yet. Let's get the conversation started. Please e-mail:

Titled: Special Vendor

Please include the following:

1) A description of the type of merchandise you would like to vend.
2) Some pictures or website reference with pictures, etc
3) A little info about yourself and/or your company. The kind of stuff we could use when promoting your presence and product when marketing the special event.
4) A phone number and suitable times to call.

If you have used goods to sell, please check the GOB Retail buying pages. Many used items like role-playing books, comics, graphic novels, Funko Pops and magic cards and more are things that GOB would buy directly and would not be material for a special vendor arrangement.

New Board and Card Games have been added weekly. 240+ games are available for everyone to play in the GOB Game Room (Free) or Rent out. Games may be rented for up to 5 days (not counting the day you rent it) for fairly nominal amounts, which will be $3, $5, $7 or $10 depending on the size and cost of the game. The library will contain a mixture of new games and it will keep some well loved now out of print games as a means to keep them available to you. Up to 2 games may be rented at the same time.

Better yet! When you return your rental, if you found you really liked it, you can buy a new copy and we'll discount that new copy the amount you paid for the rental. So you can use the renting library as a try it before you buy it service.
