Speaking of small carpets - I just did a google search for dollhouse carpets and came up with this:

Hmmm - I'm known as Thod since approx. 22 years - can you beat that ...

In regard to the carpets - yes they are nice - but the prices are INSANE !!!!

I got 10 of the medium sized ones for free from my friend. I don't know what they payed - but it was a fraction of the $300 which I would have paid at the doll house. Knowing about the real price at source I was asking myself to offer a carpet service here. Buying in 100-200 carpets and peddling them off on E-Bay for $5 max. (for the size A). Take 3 for $10. And shipping wouldn't be a problem as the small ones are 3g and fit in a normal envelope.

I even asked Stefan and Jeff about their thoughts for a carpet with the DF logo on it. No - I didn't wanted to infringe a trade-mark - I rather asked their thoughts about a cut to DF.

Would be sooo cool to have a small carpet with the DF logo on. Or some other designs with a dungeon on.

I don't know what they mean with hand woven on the page - but mine show clear signs of machine made. So I guess it would depend how intelligent the machine is and how big a production run if some specific carpets would be feasible - price wouldn't be the issue - rather numbers.

Unfortunately never heard back from Jeff or Stefan. So the first DF franchise idea (I'm aware off) never got an answer (wink, wink).

Thod;

I don't KNOW if you can beat on Jeff and Stefan, BUT:

IF you do succeed in getting DF-logo'd carpets made and approved, I WANT ONE, preferrably either 4" x 6", or 6" x 10". Those sizes will work for my two normal dungeon room sizes.
And I'm willing to pay a reasonable ransom for them. Not bailing out the king or queen, but maybe a non-line-of-succession princess or royal nephew/niece.
Say, $20 for the 4x6, $35 for the 6x10. That gives Jeff some royalty kickback for the logo while you get some money as well. That is, of course, based on the prices you're approximating in your post. And assuming the sizes there match an 'A' and a 'B' size.

Fingers crossed, Jeff and Stefan will pay attention and approve it.

See ya!

OK Thod - maybe you've got me on the 22 years (but not by a whole lot...)...and I am THOTH on quite a few (diverse) forums and such...anyway...

Yeah - those little carpets are a bit pricey - though it seems that the smallest ($10) size should be more then sufficient for most applications with not much need for the larger (medium & up) ones...

(tiny) carpet import business....why not!
