About

So, what is a Crumb Dungeon?

My shop began as an idea that just hit me (like a freight train, really) for items that I could sell at an annual convention in my area that is attended by a group or club that is essentially my Family. We travel far and wide to attend and though some farther than others, we all use a lot of fuel to get there, not to mention convention tickets and hotel fees, so we figured to try and sell something to help cover the expenses.

From there, even with my very limited inventory, I learned that I could market a product to the community (albeit an unusual product) with enough success to cover the bulk of our losses and my family and friends implored I try Etsy. I now bring my Wet Specimens to a greater audience.

I began here with a limited inventory of pigs, provided through college dissection suppliers (Like those that supply them to medical universities for students) and chicken hearts, which were actually provided by my local grocery store. My shop started out rather humbly, as at the time, I had only so many resources to work with and not so much as a decent photograph of myself for my profile. I did however have a name. "The Crumb Dungeon". I felt it had a nice ring to it, Crumb Dungeon being an intentional alteration to the word Curmudgeon.

From my more humble beginnings, I have been able to branch out to other items, such as my Pig Hearts, which were again provided through dissection suppliers or chicken feet, which were again sold through the local grocery store, to even octopus tentacles, which were waste items from the fresh sushi markets in my area.

My work was done at my home, in my kitchen, but I have since been able to branch outwards to designing a better station in my workshop. I try to use as many donated materials (such as the jars) or to source jars from locally-owned venues, rather than from larger companies to not only keep production costs low, but to help to support my community, which I can actively relate to, as I am trying to support my own group as well, to cover the expenses of the outings or events we undergo.

This group is a regional Car Club of Professional Car (Hearses, Limousines and Ambulances) enthusiasts located across the country. Specifically, we are the Southeast Regional chapter of Graveyard Mafia (with our group head being in Georgia). We organize rallies and charity car shows, as well as being included and requested for our appearance at other events, such as the event that started it all in Orlando or events to support the community, such as Veterans' benefit Biker/Hotrod rallies. I shall continue to try to sell these at our annual gathering in Orlando, to help our club members support the cost of attending the convention, but otherwise, my profits come solely from online sales.
