    Melody – which SciFi/Fantasy convention is it? Let us know in advance and I’ll certainly try to be there. Congratulations!

    If it goes well, what about DragonCon? I’ll admit this suggestion is totally because it’s one of only a couple cons I know of near enough to me that I might be able to go, but I’d think it would fit well.

    Poad plushies would be great! Something that can interest people and be cheap enough that they can buy multiples and also to appeal to those of us without deep pockets. One of the biggest things I can think of is if there would be some way to make something that would be able to be made/sold more cheaply, yet still maintain the quality Windstone demands. When I talk to my daughter and her friends, the price point the materials and workmanship demands is a stalling point for them.

    DragonCon was my first thought as well! I’ve never been to one, but it would be easier for East Coast/Southern USA Windstone Fans… and Atlanta is pretty cool! I didn’t realize how big it was either.

    “Didn’t realize how big it was”……. OMG! Trying to scare Melody with the immense size? There’s other, smaller cons around to help her warm up for something like Dragoncon. LOL! Connecticon used to be very focused on webcomics, LARP and other things like that where Windstones would have fit right in, but it seems they have moved away from that kind of focus. Port Con Maine is a cute “little” convention that has a mix of genres, if Melody feels like seeing the far end of the other coast!

    Yes, there are a couple of nice, small science fiction/fantasy conventions right here in the Northwest, that would be a good place to start.
    Also – is Windstone looking to become more of a presence in brick and mortar stores again? There are two shops here in my hometown that would be a perfect fit for Windstones. Each one has been around for over ten years, carries crystals, incense, candles, beautiful jewelry, fairy figurines, etc, etc. Just the kind of place you would expect to see a corner with a few dragons and griffins. I’d be happy to pass on the names of those stores to someone, if there is an interest. Probably each of us knows of a store or two in our town.

    How about poad plushes? Ones to match the production colors in the store. Might be a good way to get younger generations hooked. Heck, I’d love a clutter of stuffed poads on my bed lol.

    John has been looking into poad™ plushies.

    Oh! I hope they will be something that can be done!

    I completed the survey. I made a spreadsheet of all my Windstones, so I knew exactly how many I have, which made me wonder, how did I amass so many?!

    Right???? I was too lazy to boot up my computer when I did the survey and just put in an estimate. Now that I’m actually on said computer, I realize I was off… by 35 pieces!

    Read my books! Volume 1 and 2 of A Dragon Medley are available now.

    Have you approached the stores, to see if they’d be interested in carrying Windstones? Windstone used to at least have a ‘bird dog’ promotion where, if you referred a retailer to them and that retailer started carrying Windstone, they’d give you a sculpt. Maybe bring a couple pieces into the store with you if possible. (I still keep an old brochure in my glove box for that purpose) I miss seeing them in stores also, but haven’t had luck yet. But then I rarely see stores that feel like a fit anymore.

    If I really want to be selfish, Megacon is in Orlando near me… think they’re more comic/anime, but you could push The Veligent and Rue Day… :p

    I didn’t know about a bird dog program,missed that.I have a couple of brochures too.
    Ela_Hara and I use our card holders as cell phone holders.Maybe that could be a new use for them but market them a phone holders? Make a cute little dragon or Poad(tm) on it? I would buy a couple.We have 2phones and 3pads and holders would come in handy.

    Hee Hee! YEP!
    The ‘Claw’ one is PERFECT for holding Cell Phones!
    And the WS Logo one is really good for holding a Tablet and/or folders/papers….

    I use my Claw holder at work!

    Took the survey, although I was stumped at the first question – lol! I have never counted all my Windstones, so I just put 100 to be safe. Interesting survey – happy to help 🙂

    Took the survey. The class seemed to be concentrating on production/LP pieces and grab bags, so the survey didn’t quite fit someone like me who spends a LOT of my Windstone money on test paints, but I answered the questions as well as I could.

    That’s a good idea to use the holder for a phone. Ooh I want poad plushies! I also want baby unicorn and baby dragon plushies, colourful or rainbow ones!

    Looking for rainbow or pink & teal grab bags!
