The Trading Post
08.12.18. Now that the Trading Post has been operating for exactly a month, we'll be making some changes in response to some problems that have arisen since it's introductions. Comments can no longer be edited after a certain amount of time, so we ask that you post ONE strudel per comment, so that you can hide the comments after it has been traded off. Posting multiple in the same comment causes confusion if you cannot hide just one strudel in particular. ALSO if your strudel is not on the masterlist, please post to the Can't find your strudel? entry on the StrudelCupboard (https://www.deviantart.com/strudelcupboard) to help us find any missing babies! We're super quick about updating!

EDIT 3: 01.Jul.2008
EDIT 2: 27.Jun.08
    Oh my goodness, I just noticed the apostrophe! Who do I thank for this?!?!?

EDIT 1:
    The seats were re-assigned. I'm at B-08, not B-07. :)




Anime Expo's coming up in less than two weeks, and I'm excited as hell about it! We received our table assignments today, and I'm going to be at B-08. So if you're going to the con (as an alley artist or as a guest), please come visit me! I'd love to meet you.

And for my friends and aquaintances who are also going to be at tables, which one(s) are you at? I'm so curious. Yay! I only sell art at one convention a year, so you'll pardon me if I'm as giddy as a schoolgirl at the moment. It's one of the rare times I get to see online friends. ^_^

I'm selling original prints again this year, including my most recent ones with the dragon and the steampunk Thumbelina (sent those off just in time.) I also have the zodiac poster and bookmarks that I had last year. I've added 3 bookmarks: a panda, a cat, and a squid. Yes, I know they're not zodiac animals, but trust me, the bookmarks fit in nicely with the rest.

So please don't be shy. Come visit me. :)

Also, a reminder that my Rurouni Kenshin fanart contest is still in progress. The link is in my contest section below this journal entry. Please check it out. Prizes include multiple DA subscriptions or Amazon.com gift certificates.

Ooh, I hope you're going on Saturday and that you haven't been there already. I didn't see you today.

Better luck next year on the table. If you want, we can call you the day registration opens up so you get a warning.

Awesome... I have a feeling I'll be spending a lot of money this year... it'll be great though oO<3

On a completely unrelated sidenote.. (or maybe it is related >.<'';) how is Kushiel's Mercy? I've been meaning to buy it >.<''

I really enjoyed it. :) Alas, it's not as good as the original trilogy with Phedre. None of the Imriel books are, IMO.

But this one was fun, and I liked it the most out of the Imriel books.

LavenderSakura's avatar
Really? yeah I read the first of the Imriel series and I got bored in some parts...

I miss all the Phedre/Joscelin ness and the fact her adventures seemed more interesting. But I'll definitely have to catch up x] Thanks :D

hakubaikou's avatar
Heh. Yeah, the first Imriel book was rather uninspired compared to her other books. I feel that they got better with each successive one though.

But nothing will match Kushiel's Dart for me. That one's my favorite, followed by Kushiel's Avatar. I thought Kushiel's Chosen was the weakest of the first trilogy. Parts of it dragged for me. And yeah, Phedre and Joscelin make such an interesting pair. They're tough to beat.

I thought you were coming! I just found out you're not. :(

I promise we'll just sit there and cry a bit. Bored. Sullen. Morose. I swear.

I'll be there! I'll make certain to drop by your table - my brother did last year, and I think he took a picture of you with his big beefy camera. I still have my bookmark he bought at your table. : D

hakubaikou's avatar
Yay! I can't remember exactly what your brother looks like (it's kind of difficult at conventions with so many people coming and going, sorry!), but I do remember him coming to my table and mentioning you last year. ^_^
