It has been brought to my attention that there may be a security concern about the wrong folks trying to pick up someone else's reserves.
This is serious, and if I catch anyone doing it they'll regret it terribly. (Since passing yourself off as someone you are not is fraud, you can expect to have a sit down with Con security and possibly the Police!)
As a security measure, I am recommending all those who placed reserves with me submit to me (via PM) either a) a security code word or phrase or b) their real name to be checked against photo ID at pickup.
If you wish, you may also PM me a recent photo of yourself. I will print this and put it with your items to be compared to anyone trying to pick up your goods.
Most regrettably, if you do not avail yourself of any of these security measures, I cannot be responsible if someone does manage to fool me and collect your reserved goods.
It's a shame isn't it! Happened to me last year. Also it gets confusing when friends came to pick up stuff for people, and then the actual people came later and didn't know where their stuff was!
stillnovember: toy cars from Japan now reserved. Please pick up at table N26 before 8:30pm. Also due to a recent security issue that has come to light, please read the security bulletin on p14 of this thread and PM me a security identifier.

A huge thanks to everyone who came and bought stuff. Especially all my reserved item buyers. Love you guys!
I did very well. I haven't done the final count yet. But I came back with very little stuff. Exactly the result I needed.
Only had 3 reserves not show up to collect their items. Thankfully all smaller items.
The reserves worked out very, very well. ;D The sellers next to me weren't quite so lucky unfortunately. They had a big reserve fall through. Ouch.
My pesky unsold items:
1. The large and small Taco Bell mascot chihuahuas. Everyone points, says they're so cute, listens to them speak the famous lines, then they move on... even at $5 for the pair!
2. The Palm IIIe with box, manuals, software, cradle, extra stylii, and belt pouch. Tons of nostalgia comments from passersby but no takers. I was a bit surprised at only $20 for a collector-ready unit. It's headed to eBay next. (I suspect it may just not be old enough yet - maybe 10 years too early for the true tech collectors.)
