Convention Application Resume

  Welcome to our Convention Resume! This site is produced in Dyslexia/Neurodivergent friendly  fronts including openDyslexia and Dyslexie (with license). I’ve added as many alternate captions as I have been able, but if you are unable to review something please reach out so I may fix it! I have tried to make it mobile friendly, but you may need to use a desktop to properly view it if items are broken.

  This page serves to fulfill any needs to gather application information, view products, previous work, previous table set ups and our current con schedule that I will update as it changes. Thank you for taking the time to consider our application and review our page. I hope it is conclusive of any necessary information.

Where Do We Sell Our Work?

We mostly sell our work on Etsy via our shop here: www.etsy.com/shop/beansinthings 

We also sell at cons, and on rare occasion directly via Paypal.

Do You do Custom work? Where is your Queue?

We do not accept or handle custom work on a standard basis. On rare occasion, we may take a one off item for a friend, however we do not accept large custom projects from the general public and do not utilize a queue, instead focusing on ready made work and products. We sometimes will take a short term custom for smaller items, such as headbases or molds and these are handled soley through Etsy.
