    Default Find Your Unicorn/Holy Grail Hairtoy Thread

    Hiya all!

    I saw a really neat thing happen in a recent thread called "What are you looking for?", where some members found hairtoys they only dreamed of ever finding. This gave me an idea to start this thread where anyone can come in and post what their unicorn would be, and the rest of us can see if we have one to spare. I also thought that with each post we can mention a hairtoy we have that might be someone else's dream. If a member mentions a toy you have or want, you may respond here, but a direct PM to that member would likely keep this thread more concise. Trading or direct sales are allowed.

    I will go first.

    My unicorn hairtoy is a VotePalantine fork/forks with a beautiful grain.

    Things I might have to offer this thread are antique hair combs and particularly a stunning antique battle axe, WWC Acrylics, extremely large wood forks from GTS, extremely large sticks from Elymwold, and finally a short pair of hairy sheoak cubic sticks from VotePalantine that were sadly too short for me from the get go.

    Anyone else??

    My grail is a 3+ prong wavetop Elymwold with multicolor top 4.25"+ fpl, or the Ravenscroft Goddess hairfork. I have longed for these for almost a decade.

    Potential offers I have got an incredible giant (6" fpl) 2 prong angular piano-black Elymwold that has a copper acrylic cabochon that I would pretty much only give up for one of these. I have a Ravenscroft 2 prong lightening bolt hair fork that I adore but find a bit chunky for my buns. I have a white with blue and white topper acrylic Lady Idun.

    This is a fantastic idea for a thread! I'll take a turn...

    What I am looking for: a Ficcare in large that has three rows of blue, with crystals... I can not remember the right name of the clip right now. Or purple would do as well. (ETA: a very kind person has informed me that the name of the clip I'm looking for is the Multistripe Glittery in blue. Thank you for the help, you know who you are!)

    What I have: a really stunning Before the Eye 4-prong antler fork with a gorgeous labrodorite cabochon in it. Also have a Ficcare in large: the border tiger eye, an amazing clip!

    Oohh, I like this thread My unicorns are very long Jeter forks with 4 or 5 prongs, with darkish or unique wood; from 6" up to 6,5" (or longer) in total lenght; if you have some please please please let me know! So willing to buy those. I am curious also about BIG GTS forks

    I got a giant antler helix with 2 blue acrylic toppers from Furnival I could part of, very big and thick Mapleburl hairsticks in green, and of course the items in my sales post; I love trades!

    I dream of:
    - Blondiesturn hair forks (does anyone still remember that maker?)
    - Mamacat arrow shaped fork
    - Matched pair of forks good for wet hair (titanium or aluminum preferred)

    That might actually be an easy one to see come true in here. Best of luck!

    PrincessBob: I don't have *that*, but I do have an Elymwood wave top; the fork is a blonde wood and the top is lavender acrylic. It's a lovely fork, but honestly too big for me.

    For me it'd be an Elymwold gothic fork in rosewood and green inlay. Aiming for the stars...
