ilikelookingatnakedmen asked: Hi, whenever I try to click on the link to your etsy shop I get an error message saying "Uh oh!There's something not quite right in the URL. Please check for any errors in the username and try again." WHERE WILL I BUY MY GRIFFONS NOW???
Postin’ this again since it seems some people missed the announcement.
We’re no longer using etsy.
Instead, starting Monday we’ll be posting in-stock beasties to our own shop which will be accessible via our website.
FOR ALL YOUR BABBY GRYPHON NEEDS.
Petty annoyance who?
No, it’s not a joke mate.
So, due to some generalized idiocy on behalf of a supplier (long story involving many issues which could have been solved had common sense been applied) as well as shipping companies not following their own protocol, we’re going to have less beasts than we anticipated at Comicon.
The up side is that we’ll have more to offer online afterwards.
The only beasts that we’ll have absolutely none of will be the babby squiggles & tea monsters (which irks me greatly, since we have a new tea monster face, and the babby squiggles all have new feets which I love), and voodoo hyenas.
We’ll have a smaller selection of everything else than we planned though, so if you’re planning to take a homemade horror home come find us sooner rather than later for the best selection. My god, I sound like a bad department store.
Shop smart, shop S-mart.
So, in closing, if I were to bake cupcakes right now neither the postman nor my supplier would get any.
We’re officially finished with etsy - and as of Monday we’ll be listing some beasties in our new shop which will be available through our own website.
We have some things set aside already, but if there’s a specific critter you’d like to see in stock let us know and we’ll do our best!
As Mildmay is now officially a retiree (she’d be the sort that sits on her porch with a sawed off shotgun and issues no warning shots), a friend of mine has picked up a bargain pony which will be my spring/summer project.
She was a super duper bargain, and we were all a bit perplexed as to WHY until we got her home. Chubby brown pony is not going to do ANYTHING that she doesn’t want to.
She doesn’t afraid of ANYTHING, but she has her own opinions and she’s not changing her mind for you or anyone else. New object that would scare the hooves off an ordinary horse? I’d better go over and destroy that shit, gleefully.
I like her.
She needs a name, fairly desperately though. At the moment I keep referring to her as Ugbo (she might be pretty on the inside, but at the moment her packaging looks like it was designed by a committee of interns).
Current thoughts are;
Lilo - Because I can see myself yelling LILO! in exasperation, a lot.
Ursula - She doesn’t have tentacles, but they might just be hiding under all that hair.
Salem - I’m being forced to add a generic option to the list.
There were about forty seven other options as well, but all the ‘cute’ ones got dropped off the list for lack of suitability. My offerings (Samsquanch, Squatch, or Helga) were deemed too cruel to contemplate.
Need to pick something quick while she’s in quarantine so this doesn’t go the way of the poor tarantula, forever saddled with the name ‘Pider’ because I waited too long to come up with a real name.
The terrible, awful daunting list of things left to do before Friday morning;
last of the babby squiggles
nearly everyone’s eyes
Then all the packing, tagging, signage, business cards, final inventory list etc. etc. etc.
I should probably endeavor to do laundry somewhere in there as well, but if I show up wearing my pjs, you’ll know I didn’t get that far.
Ahhhhh convention season ahhhhhhhhh.
