"That was confronting and inspiring. Thank you for that. It took a few reads and watches to get over and beyond my ideas and I thank you heaps! I can make things perfectly imperfect and vice versa. You have opened up many…"
"I think there is definitely room for more. If you're directing them at adults in particular (i.e., display / collector items more than toys)... well, there's a taste for everything out there. See for example this artist
"Oh wow that is awesome.. I have to have a big think about that. Not puppets (that's your thing) but characters who have a personality and can be loved.. Is that a market and do they have to be cute/fluffy/happy…"
"We've been really getting into puppet making lately, and have found that because of how much people like the puppets personalities, they're requesting to buy the plush toys. No time to make them though!"
"Etsy posts stories from sellers all the time, as well as tips. I never really tried myself, had an etsy shop but never expected it to make any money. Perhaps some of the "success stories" there might be useful?
"I am starting to get into selling stuff myself. I have made local contacts and ways to start selling at art fairs and things, but I know that it is a hard thing to do. At local places people are likely to look at your things and think "I can…"
How do you do. I would like to hear from fellow toy makers. I make felt animals and toys. Is it possible to make money from these unique patterns ? Do you have a success story?

Thank you, Di! A little over 24 hours now, and haven't heard anything yet. Wish I knew what the "norm" is for this process... Oh, well, it isn't like I'm trying to set up a porn site or recruit for al-Qaeda, so I'm hoping that there won't be a problem. Stay tuned...
After careful consideration, I have decided to apply to our leadership to establish a new group for the purposes set forth in my discussion of yesterday. If it is approved, you will be able to tap into it at http://www.thesteampunkempire.com/group/scribblers-den. Start checking periodically when you find this. If it disapproved, I will notify everyone by this medium. Fingers crossed! Hope you like it.
Quite kind of you, thank you! If you would be at all interested, our debut album ~The Great Promenade of Fools & Ghosts~ is available digitally on iTunes, Amazon, and both digital/physical versions can be obtained at CD Baby: http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/marquisofvaudeville
