Fact: We launch our collections at 10a Alabama so you’d better keep an eye (like these monster plushies). Hee. This collection was launched last April 13-14. Few of our collections were matchbox babies (see the header above) and gnomes, pug and cat plush pillows, vintage cats, and more.
Not so long ago, we made a small version of these plushies– the one-eyed plush. We just made it for display. It’s like staring at us while we work. The more you see it staring makes you feel ashamed of procrastinating. We procrastinate at times, yeah, but the one-eyed plush keep up focused somehow. This also inspires us to make our own designer plush toys and join craft shows or art exhibits in the future.
If you haven’t known yet, we consign some stuff at Pocket Universe Art Gallery, 2nd floor Saguijo bar. The owner, Ms. Camille saw this collection and gave us a heads up. Told her about our dream and asked why we didn’t let her know beforehand. She could have given us a chance she said so. She’s out of the country now and promised us to talk about it again when she comes back. Pocket Universe is now managed by Pindiemusic. We just delivered some pugs and sheep plushies as well as polka dot tote bags. Photos on this blog soon. Visit and check out the gallery then chill at the bar. Saguijo is such a home for fresh and rookie bands in the metro. Terno (recording) bands like Up Dharma Down usually performs there. Come swing by.
To wrap this up, this collection was a hit we can tell. Most of the kids (even those young at heart) were hooked and their loving parents didn’t have to think twice. For us, we make plushies not only as toys (well, for the kids perhaps) but as a piece of art, a memento of everyone’s childhood. What best is if we can be part of these kids’ childhood memories, too.
On the other hand, we have yet to realize who our real market is. Back when we had our Totoro collection, parents would buy it for their love children. Because of this, we are more than inspired to create and improve our designs more. We are always thankful to everyone who supports handmade and indie artists like us. Hope to see you at crafts fairs soon or plush exhibits (why not?). Hello, Vinylonvinyl and Secret Fresh, we hope to make a breakthrough soon (dream big). Haha!
