Athena's Home Novelties' Convention

It's taken me a while to write this, such a busy week, but in a really good way!!!

I was honored by being invited to Athena's Home Novelties Convention this past Saturday. They are carrying the For Your Nymphomation Adult Toychest now in their catalog and the Rolling Toy Trunk as what they call a "supply item" (being sold to their Goddesses or Adoni only - aren't those the cutest names for their consultants?). They began with a hilarious opening number which I video taped from the side of the stage, will upload video soon. Now the funniest part was the blonde with the go-go boots and super short dress throwing the candy - this super groovy chick was Ed, a MAN, the buyer who orders from me. He did drag a little too well!!! ;-) "LOVE YA ED!"

Anyway, they invited me to speak & promote these 2 items and tell them how wonderful they are. Well, I was a bit nervous, there were about 400 people there, and while I had taught graphic design at a local college, that was only a captive audience of 20 at most. I normally don't have problems speaking to a crowd, but wow, there were a lot of people! They had another speaker first from a toy company and then the smooth-talking announcer introduced me. ... "here we go" I thought, "deep breaths"....

I wheeled a
Rolling Toy Trunk behind me that I brought from New York to give away to a lucky goddess and carried an Adult Toychest in the other hand. I looked out over the huge audience at the Stadium Auditorium in Woonsocket, Rhode Island & was almost blinded by the spot light. The second I said hello, my nerves totally calmed and I started speaking freely. I was even funny at times, but mostly matter-of-fact. I thought I was maybe TOO matter-of-factual and *wish* I were a little funnier... but how funny are discreet storage items with glow-in-the-dark zipper pullers and washable nylon linings??? But at least I got them all enthusiastic about wanting to WIN one of the 2 item... and happily called the name of 2 lucky goddesses. The winner of the Rolling Toy Trunk was a pregnant woman who told me during the lunch break how happy she was to win it. I'm so glad someone who really wanted one was the winner, "congrats Ms. Pregnant Goddess" who's name I can't remember!

They did a little silent film skit, complete with dialog written on a still shot, with the new products called "The Adventures of Craig and Ed" (Ed was in drag again, of course!). My favorite part was when Ed opened his night table draw & it was empty, but Craig told him not to worry... and slid out from under the bed
an Adult Toychest which he unlocked and was filled with goodies. If I play nice, maybe I can get a copy of that to post on the For Your Nymphomation website???

The day itself was amazing. Athena's is such a well organized and thoughtful company. I think if I hadn't started For Your Nymphomation I would have signed up in a second to be a goddess! There was an electrifying energy in the air and an excited crowd obviously having so much fun. Their owner and "mother goddess" Jennifer Jolicoeur is an incredible person. And extremely generous! She gave away thousands of dollars worth of product to top sellers and raffle ticket holders. Half the raffle money went to a lucky winner and the other half went to a charity. She said more than once she LOVES to give away stuff! It's nice to see that an owner of a company cares so much about the people working for her. She's super kind, funny, so easy to talk to and it's obvious from the crowd's reaction that she's very well loved by everyone.

What an incredible day I spent with them, I also had the honor to pull 3 more raffle tickets to give away 2 more
Adult Toychests and a 3rd stuffed full of the new products they reviewed during the day. My drive home was only 3.5 hrs, not the 6 it took me to get there in the pouring rain (route 95 in CT was the worst, 3 accidents and 15 MPH... people don't know how to drive in the rain!)

Now they did NOT ask me to plug them in this way, this is my own personal plug: if you are looking to make some extra money or to make a complete career change and have some fun "partying" for a living, sign up with
Athena's Home Novelties (it wouldn't hurt to tell them I sent you!).

  7. Vera,
    Thank you soooo much for your presentation. You were wonderful.(even if the toychest was a bit shy and didn't want to work with you)LOL! It was a pleasure meeting you. Can't wait to show off the toychest to my customers. And Im glad that the ride back home was much better.

    It was lovely to see you as always! I am so glad that you have forged a great partnership with Athena's. Hopefully I will see you at the Winter Fetish convention again this year.

You're products astound me and I cannot wait to get my own toy chests to show and to use for myself. Thank you so much for taking the time (and the effort! That traffic must have been awful!) to come to our meeting!
