I can't tell you how excited I am to finally have this done! Went with a pegboard (had to add cardboard to the back as it was a tad thin) to display them all. I have 90 different charms with over 100 actual chibis/animal chibis available. They are sorted by series in horizontal rows -- none of them except the animals go onto multiple rows so it's nice and easy to find one. Plus, I like the fact that it looks "full" so you have to take a minute to browse -- you might find something you weren't even looking for!

If you see one you're interested in, please let me know! I only have 1 or 2 copies of some of them so I want to make sure I have one you might like! Also, some of my chibis haven't been made into keychains, but if you see one you like on my list I'm happy to make it for you :)

You can see a full listing of all my chibis here at my DeviantArt account.

Have a wonderful Easter everyone!

Eh....they are cute. I wonder if it may help for organization if you add a number or some code, (row vs column, A-A, B-A, etc) if you didn't want to display your full stock at once.

Thanks :)
That's actually just one of each design -- I'll have all the rest sorted in buckets behind the table. My original goal was to get a jewelry tree to hang them, but could never find one i liked. They're all sorted by their series in a row (and none, except the animals, go onto a second row) so hopefully everyone can find the one they want :D I may go back and do it by alphabetical order, but that's just me and my minor case of OCD =p

I would be very careful with that. There has been a lot of thefts, so I would put that in a glass/plastic case maybe because people could easily snag one if you aren't watching all of the time. People like to touch things and point at items so it could look like they would be interested in buying one, but if there is a crowd of people, they are likely to snatch it. I'm just saying that you should be careful with an open peg board. :)

I do think you should have at least some sort of organization. Maybe by series, alphabetical?

Oh, I hadn't thought of stealing... I tend to always just think of the best in people. Naive, perhaps, but oh well. I'll probably keep it pretty close then to me. I have found though, from trying to move them myself, they don't just pop off since i have two rings around the peg. So if someone did try and steal, I could probably tackle them across the table :D

And they are sorted by series :) (horizontal rows).

Ugh, I found my second early stop on Friday morning. I do look forward to visiting (and buying from) your table.
Decided not to bring a signature book due to lack of interest.

:D I look forward to meeting you! Lots of chibi things to sell! (although I am running so, so behind on the bags and totes. I know what I'll be working on the next few days!

And they are sorted by series :) (horizontal rows).

I've just helped out at booths in the past and having an extensive history of work in retail I've seen the craziest things and people stealing pretty much anything they can. Just be attentive :) You get all kinds of people together at cons, so being aware is just a part of selling items to the public. I'd be pretty ticked and hurt if I looked away and saw one of my items gone. Even if they aren't that expensive, it never feels good to get something taken from you. :( Sorry to be so glum! I just like to give out handy advice.

Btw, your keychains... Adorable. I'll have to stop by and buy an octopus, penguin, or narwhal. I don't know which! They are all so cute.

I know how that is. I'm still in retail (someone, please hire me! xD) at a JCP and we've gotten so lax on apprehending anyone -- my store actually got rid of our security! I remember I used to eat the cookies in the bins at like Jewel and Dominicks because I thought they were free ^^; I think they were the only thing i ever really stole though. No, thank you very much for the advice! Considering it can be such an issue in retail I never thought about it for myself -- I guess I'm so used to selling things online that I never have to worry about it =p

And thank you! ♥ The narwhal is my personal favorite; I have one on my steadily growing lanyard! I look forward to meeting you! Can't wait and can't believe it's almost here!!!

EDIT: Oh, and btw, what color octopuses might you like/think others would like?/ I can do multiple colors for them and so far have the pink one, a green, purple and blue ones.

Hahaha, too funny! Yeah, I'm on the floor over in Womens. I'm the "lucky" associate who gets to plan the stupid truck (door to floor) and pretty much do my manager's job but not for my manager's pay xD I mean, I like the added responsibility and always getting to do projects, but you think they could pay me more than the person who just folds and cleans up after people? =p Are you one of the photographers? Ours are so funny -- I love it when they're trying to get the kids to smile; one makes this awesome noise like a duck! :D

Question.... are you planning on laying this flat on the table, or using something like a table easel?

I ask because that is how I displayed my charms last year, and before I got to duck taping the crap out of the board to the easel it fell and broke some of the charms. So just a warning there to make sure however you display it to make sure your display is sturdy and probably duct taped!

Thanks for the advice Daven!
I was planning to keep it propped up and possibly duct tape it to one of my wire cube things. I sadly don't have an Easel or I would so use that! I am still absolutely clueless on how my setup is going to look (I really, really need to get started on that. Have lots of supplies and ideas, just nothing concrete yet) but it's going to be propped up somehow! With duct tape. So much duct tape! =p I hope yours stays where it's supposed to this year! I would cry if I lost some of my charms :( Although I have dropped them from the top of my staircase and thrown them on my driveway and they haven't broken yet! I want to try runnign one over with my car, but I think that might be a bit overkill ^^;

Oh wow, so many people~ ♥

@KnitChick -- look forward to meeting you! Also looks like I'm going to have to make even more Scouts -- they're more popular than I thought!

@Remnant -- That sounds like such a fun job though! :D I wish I could play peekaboo and stuff. Ours has been super busy with a ton of senior pictures, like my brother, who waited really last minute! =p

@Naoya -- I love how your eyes are drawn to something right away when you weren't even sure if it was there! That's how I find a ton of elephant stuff =p I spot them everywhere!

@Cloud -- Yay! Look forward to meeting you! And it looks like I'll need to go make another batch of Scouts! I found a Sailor Moon under my rug though, so that was exciting =p Must have missed her after the glazing!

It's funny, I used to really dislike her but I actually think she's pretty awesome now :D
However, my sentiments for Ichigo still haven't changed xD Haven't started reading this last arc yet, but I don't think my opinion of him is going to change =p
