Did you say Oddmall Outpost: Assembly of Odd… What the goose is an Oddmall Outpost: Assembly of Odd?
Only the coolest thing in the history of hyperbole!
Since 2009 thousands of visitors have enjoyed the incredible diversity of unique art, handmade crafts, oddities, absurdities, geekinesses, and wonders on display and for sale at our various Oddmall: Emporium of the Weird festivals and shows throughout northern Ohio and the Pacific Northwest. Those shows are still happening happenings, but now we’re offering a little something special for friends and fans who can’t make it to the annual events or who, for various reasons, find themselves deficient in their recommended daily allowance of Oddmall awesomeness.
BEHOLD! Oddmall Outpost: Assembly of Odd, 6000 square feet (and a parking lot) of amazing amazingnesses. It’s an overflowing cornucopia of raw, burning (not literally) creativity featuring the works of dozens, perhaps hundreds, of the world’s most innovative, imaginative, inspired, and original artists and crafters. Here weirdness is a virtue, imagination is unleashed, ideas are shared, fantasy is cherished, and all people are welcome. It’s a cosmic wonderland of creativity and you are the planet’s designated ambassador.
Is it a consignment store for Oddmall artists?
Among other things, yes!
Oddmall Outpost: Assembly of Odd is a consignment shop overflowing with art, crafts, games, toys, geeky things, oddities, and other exciting and wonderful jazz. If you are an artist, crafter, or purveyor of anything odd, unique, geeky, or interesting please check out the Consignment Information page for, well, consignment information.
You do not have to be an Oddmall vendor or live in Ohio to participate. We encourage creative people across the glob to get involved.
How can I get involved?
We will have consignment forms and inventory control sheets available at the upcoming Oddmall: Expedition Elsewhere in Canton February 17 and 18th. You can also nab those papers online at www.oddmalloutpost.com.
Bring your goods to the show or drop them off at the Outpost at your leisure.
Where is it?
Visit the digs at:
772 E. Turkeyfoot Lake Rd.
Akron, Ohio 44319
(It’s in Green but the address says Akron because it’s a conspiracy of some sort. Solve the mystery and win a FREE high five!).
Is it open yet?
Unfortunately, we’ve experienced some recent delays (mostly due to the schedule of the planning and zoning committee), so the store isn’t quite ready to open yet. This is good news, however, since it gives us some time to build the inventory and get the digs in proper form.
We should be open for business in early Spring. The online store is already active, though. We’re currently in the process of adding inventory.
How can I get more information?
Visit www.oddmalloutpost.com or come by sometime and meet with us in person. We are usually there 8:30-4:00 on weekdays.
