Let me explain what I mean by that title, and I implore you to please read this entry completely.
As some of you may know, and as others may not, for the past eight years, I have attended a convention called Anime Nebraskon every autumn to help raise money. Since we are only a small business, Nebraskon has been a very large part of our annual earnings. I have been loyal to these people since they were a baby convention, just learning to walk, and I am sure that I am a part (even if only a small part) of the reason that they were able to grow into the huge production that they are today.
This year, they denied me a table in the artist room, making this the first year since I have lived here that I will be unable to attend. Because of this, our small and humble business will suffer a great financial loss.
I understand that there are methods to their madness, but having been loyal to them for all these years, even as they continue to raise the prices of their tables and show little regard for their artists, I feel incredibly slighted.
Since Nebraskon will not be an option for us this year, I am counting on internet sales alone to make up the losses. I would like to ask a favor from all of you: Please share this post with everyone you know. You will be helping out a small business which in turn helps out the community. Remember also that Christmas is just around the corner, so it’s a great time to shop for gifts, and what’s better than a gift that was handmade with love?
In addition, anyone who orders from me and mentions that they heard about this offer through my WordPress will get a free gift. Please, and thank you.
