Last week we featured our overstock of bow ties (many of which are still available, by the way), and this week’s were continuing the theme — sort of — by spotlighting our available stock of hair bows!

Like the bow ties, there were show-only items, and now that we’re done with shows, we have some leftovers we need to find good homes for. This is a perfect gift for a young geek girl, or a young-at-heart geek woman, and we’re letting them go for just $5 — a third of their original price (plus shipping, of course).

Here’s what we have left, so if you’d like one, contact me at veronica@storiedthreads.com and we’ll set up a private transaction via PayPal. If we have any given design with both metal and plastic headbands, please let me know which one you’d prefer, or we’ll pick at random. We’ll even throw in a random pin from our collection of overstock pins as a bonus gift!

This is first come, first served, and when we run out we won’t be replacing them, so act now!

  • One chibi Nick Fury (plastic headband)
  • Two SHIELD logo (plastic headbands)
  • Two Marvel logo (plastic headbands)
  • Two Firefly logo (plastic headbands)
  • Two Deadpool logo (metal headbands)
  • Three Marvel character heads (metal headbands)
  • Seven Star Trek engineering/security (four plastic, three metal headbands)
  • Eight Star Trek science (metal headbands)

Every six months or so, we go through our sales records and our inventory, looking for items that may have exhausted their lifespan with our customers. That chore has taken on a different meaning as we are no longer doing shows, which means any inventory we happen to have on-hand becomes harder to sell off.

So over the coming weeks we’ll be spotlighting some of our surplus discontinued items, and this week we’re featuring three bowtie designs. These were show-only items, and we found a small cache of them in our bins, still bagged up and ready to go.

We currently have one Star Trek bowtie in science department blue, four Star Trek ties in engineering/security red, and nine Superman bowties. We sold these at shows for $17, but we’re offering this very limited stock to you for $10 each (plus shipping).

If you want to grab one, e-mail me at veronica@storiedthreads.com and we’ll set up a private transaction through PayPal.

In celebration of what’s become for geeks an unofficial holiday, we’re presenting some sci-fi movie-inspired designs, and of course we have to begin with our Star Wars-inspired “Stay on Target” patch ($8). It’s sound advice, for life in general and for targeting massive space stations of staggering destructive power.

Our Star Trek-inspired Away Team bags have been popular items since we introduced them, and we have a few left over from our 2017 show run, so they’re on-hand and ready to ship! They’re available in messenger ($34), tablet ($49), and laptop ($54) sizes, in classic ST gold, blue, or red, with embroidery for command, science, medical, engineering, and security. Although we default to Original Series color/department pairings, we can easily adjust them for Next Generation fans.

 

 

 

H.G. Wells’ classic War of the Worlds has been adapted into two major motion pictures (we like the older version better), a handful of loosely inspired low-budget movies, a TV show, comic books, and now into an embroidered bookmark ($10)! The design depicts one of the Martian tripods looming over the city, bathing it in the beam of its devastating heat ray.

Yep, it’s that time of year again, when we take the lazy way out and regale you with an end-of-the-year countdown lisitcle kind of thing. But let’s be honest; you’re probably too geared up for your New Year’s Eve festivities to put much effort into reading anything, so it benefits both of us.

So here we go, the top items of 2016!

PATCHES

  1. TerrifiCon_PawneeGoddessPawnee Goddess. For the second year in a row, a late-year surge in sales for Halloween pushed this patch to the top of our best-seller list. We made more than 100 of these patches this year!
  2. X-Files: I Want to Believe. Our longtime number one best-seller continues to do well and has a lock on the number two slot.
  3. Plague Survivor Geek Merit Badge. Another longtime top seller, which this year barely eked out its spot at number three over another Geek Merit Badge…
  4. Final Girl Geek Merit Badge. This design got a big boost after it was featured in an article online (sorry, I can’t find it again to re-post the link). It was a top ten seller last year and barely missed the number three position by one sale. Maybe next year!
  5. Though She Be But Little, She Is Fierce. Another past top ten seller making it into the top five! I’m always thrilled when someone buys a Shakespeare patch.

In the interest of efficiency, I’ll just spotlight the top items across my non-patch catalog of items.

Away Team Science Small 1The best-selling bag of 2016 is the blue Science version of our Star Trek-inspired Away Team bags. These were always the best selling bags at shows and we hope the love for them continues in 2017, our first year as a strictly online business.

Our top scarf design was the Harley Quinn-inspired harlequin scarf. Our best-selling necktie design featured the anti-demonic possession tattoo from Supernatural — which, I will note, will soon be retired as a design, so if you want to get one, go order one now! And our top embroidered bookmark was inspired by the greatest stage direction of all time, from Shakespeare’s A Winter’s Tale, “Exit, Pursued by a Bear.”

Even Captain Picard and the crew of the Enterprise are getting in the spirit for this weekend’s Robin Hood Springtime Festival!

Well, except for Worf. Worf is not a Merry Man.
