    Hello all! First I’d like to just say I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season, I’m sure you’re all as hectically busy as I am so I appreciate any and all comments left shedding light on my question. =) I have been an active part of the pyo community for about a year now, and have been an artist who contributes with several art pieces per year to Big Cat Rescue, one of America’s most respected rescue organizations that takes in abused, mistreated, and unwanted “pet” exotic felines for about 5 years running now. I contribute art dolls, paintings, and soon I hope a line of hand made jewelry that are sold either at auction during their October “Fur Ball” or in their on site shop where they give educational tours (If you ever find yourself in Tampa it’s well worth the 25-30 cost to see the cats!) Okay novel over, now for the point. I have painted several griffins in cat coat patterns, and I think they might make a popular addition to their gift shop, but I was concerned and curious about if that is technically abiding by Windstone’s rules about pyos? I thought I had read that if you were selling from a shop you had to be a vendor? This would be me paying for them, painting them, and sending them to Big Cat Rescue to either auction or put in the gift shop, possibly in their online gift shop as well. I appreciate any light anyone could shed on the subject,



    New production item retailers must have a physical storefront and be approved, but I don’t think there are any special requirements for PYOs as long as they are not misrepresented (for example you cannot say that you sculpted them). This is a question for John or Melody– you might want to email them as they might not see it here in the PYO section! Or use the “Ask Melody” section! 🙂

    Best wishes!

    When you get the answer, Evie, would you let us know. I am curious about this as well. Thanks so much!
