What is the gstore? A shop that sold real life gaia items for us to love and wear

Yes there is a store on redbubble where you can buy shirts/stickers with images

But we want the hats, plushies and fun things from the past!

If you wanna see what the old Gstore use to sell, click this

gaia_spoons What items would you want to see irl?
gaia_spoons Would you be more likely to support the site by buying into these items?

They were screwed over by the people that ran the old G-store.

Apparently they still owe Gaia a lot of money.

Well. They could always bring it back with another company/better people.

To avoid being ******** over...

They could, but the need to focus on this site first before doing anything else.

>>>: I'd like it to come back, especially if they partnered
up with some headphone maker and sold light blue ones with
the gaia wing on them. And black ones with NM minis too :3

My little brother also has a OMG creature and Gwee the dragon plushies, but they're currently on my shelf since he doesn't seem interested in Gaia anymore. I didn't know that they took the store down! sweatdrop

Weird. I remember those jumbo plushies that were sold for hundreds of dollars and people getting upset of the high costs. Kind of ironic now, considering of how things are now.

Man, I always wanted to buy stuff in the G Store when it was up. Though I heard enough bad things that it put me off. It's sad that they got screwed over by the a-holes who ran it before.

If/When they can afford to do so, I know that I would be more than happy to buy things from the store. T-shirts, stickers, plushies (all of the goddamn plushies), figures of the NPCs, that sort of thing. Hell, I'd love for a bound version of the mangas (even nicer if they use the cash made to fund it being continued).

It's something tangible you can own while also supporting the site, and I think that'd be appealing to many users. I know it'd be appealing to me. I'd love for plushies of some of the pets here (Melchior, Boogie, etc) and maybe even some cute little POP figures of the NPCs. It's a dream, I know, but let me have it. XD

It boils down to a lack of positive cash flow with the GStore

i'd buy all of their cresolae merch cough priorities

was never there for their stores, but i think it would be interesting if they can somehow reopen it..... afterall, it does feel nicer to spend money on something you can touch, and i'm sure they'd get a lot of money with that too, without having much angry customers

Now that better/cheaper merch production options are available, they should definitely consider it. I'd buy ALL THE FATHOM MERCH.

I always wanted the Mini Wings hairclips but never got around to buying them.

Since production costs are way larger for physical items and usually they're required to have a minimum number made, I think the best way to do it would be something like a Kickstarter. Like, announce that they need to get at least 150 people to preorder a new Rufus plushie for $40, and if they don't meet that goal then everybody keeps their money and it just doesn't get maid. If they can get 300 orders, the price would drop to $30, 400 orders would drop it down to $20, and so on. Throw in a bonus item for avatars, and it would probably be a success.

One of my biggest regrets on Gaia is that I never managed to get a Grunny plushie from the Gstore. I ordered a Coco for myself and a Kiki for my partner at the time, I also wound up with a G CORP wrist band that I really adore that came from the same store before it was closed.

Man, I wanted that Grunny...
