I love that pin. :lol: No idea why...maybe brings back memories of my youth when mood rings were the hot thing.

Thanks for the nice words.

Okay, Kram...just saw your post before I submitted. What color are you interested in? When I can make a prototype - I'll make it in the color of your choice white/black?

What I really want is a bag full of lead shot. Nice and heavy and inorganic.
This all day every. Your pins aint to shabby either and the postcards I boght from last Valentine's day are still standing long after the chocolates and flowers have been eaten and wilted.

Definitely black. Thanks!

Well, WTF? I guess this seems like a perfect time for me to order some of these bullshit, bootleg bags.

lol, Wish is the only person the forum rushes to defend but also buys their stuff.

Glad to see the place still has heart on occasion

now back to what I want to see around here:

FWIW IWish, I don't think you've been black balled or people are avoiding buying from you. The hobby has just about fallen off a cliff in the last year and a half, comparatively speaking. Anytime a new member pops up here, they are assumed to be an alt (I understand the suspicion) so I don't think they go poking around as much when they do join. Most people look at sales, or try to sell, and are out.

So don't think about as you don't get business anymore, think of it as you've cornered the ebeans market already.

:cheers:

I'm currently working on a design for long bags. I have an idea that will allow you to adjust the weight of the bags. If all goes well, you'll be able to adjust the weight from...say...3 lbs. up to 9-12 lbs. You will be able to add/remove weight as needed. Best thing is that I'll be able to ship them unfilled and you won't need to fill them with gems, sand, bb's or rice. You will fill them with something you would never think of and is readily available.

:D I have a plan...just give me a week - I have enough supplies left to finish prototype bags. My intention is to finish a bag or two then send one to a couple of members to test them out and provide feedback.

Please be patient before you buy.


Just shipped these off to a customer this morning.

I made small bags with 1-image each...in lieu of 3 in one in my previous photo.

Love my bags! Pretty much bought a lifetime supply a few years back and use them all the time. IWish's are definitely the best out of the ones I've seen. (Just look at those crap patterns/designs on the ones by someone else posted above.) Anytime I see someone else selling bags I write them off as a wannabe; a pale imitation.

Love those Dark Side of the Moon bags :pint:
