Holiday display at Brickmania #event

Ben Rome

Hello all!
The Chantilly Brickmania store manager Chris reached out to us to see if we'd like to have some displays set up in their store for the holiday season. He's providing space at either the front or back of store (largely depending on how many displays we commit, plus power needs) that will be cordoned off. 
They currently have eight 6ftx2.5ft that we can utilize, and tables will have coverings.
As long as about half of the displays are holiday themed, we can display anything we'd like. Keep in mind that these will be roped off, but not attended with a constant presence.
Setup would occur the first week of December and pickup after the New Year. Setup is basically just bringing in your display and setting it up yourself in the space. We'd just need to coordinate footprints, so that no one is crowded out.
If you are interested, sound off here or in Discord; you can email me directly (or DM me on Discord). I will NOT be at the meeting tomorrow (I'm currently in Chicago). I don't need to necessarily know WHAT you're bringing, but if you would definitly like to display and the approximate size.
If you have additional questions, shoot them to me. I've been asking Chris in batches, and he's been great with responding in a timely manner.
I'd like to let him know this week if we are going to do this. I think if it goes over well, we may be able to do this on a longer-term basis and rotate out displays.

I mostly build mosaics - I don’t know if there would be any interest in one of those, but if so, I could come up with something.

Thanks for coordinating, Ben! Looking forward to this one

Yeah, thank you for organizing this Ben! I saw the post on the Facebook group but hadn't had a chance to respond yet.

I've got a small-ish military airfield layout from brickfair that we could use. Right now it's roughly 3x6 48x48 baseplates, which a handful of fighter jets and support vehicles on top. I can probably find a way to spruce it up and make it a "holiday airfield" or something! Do you think they would be interested?

Dana: YES! I think mosaics would be a nice addition, showcasing all the different ways to do Lego.

Evan: ABSOLUTELY. If you want to holiday-ify it, just adding some simple decor here and there would be fine. I think this would fit well with the store's main selling products anyway.


Excellent! Thanks for organizing this! I’m flexible on size. And I have easels of different sizes. Or if there’s a shelf or something I can tailor it to the space available.
