Demand for some beads but not all of them? Maybe they are having a re-think about what type to produce?

I wonder whether (TB HQ) they have a problem with those particular dealers and have decided not to supply them anymore? We know that D4E appear to be out of favour (not allowed to carry X and have been very public about their feelings) and Macrow produce beads themselves, which could be seen as direct competition to Trollbeads.
I thought Macrow had stopped producing their own brand beads, apart from a few very special stones, quite some time ago.  I can't see why Trollbeads would consider them to be a problem.

I think that they have decided to address the problem of producing a massive back stock of unsellable beads. They have been coming round to my LD, who does not normally stock Uniques, and encouraging her to choose whatever beads she likes.  I believe (not totally sure) that she can swap them for different ones if they don't sell as well.  I guess that they are pretty desperate to shift their stock.
There's also German/USA retailers reselling/producing their own line who still carry TB and uniques? Perhaps, as BB points out, TB finaly realizes that even their spin off, their 'uniques' collection, needs decent management.

I hope is that they are controlling the quality and quantity of the uniques beads thay produce. It can only then improve there market for us. Also to reduce this stock number and realy look at the desins to be made. The s&b was more controlled even if some beads are not so cool and the limited run is a beter idea for Tb.
Also X by Trollbeads must have some big investment. and there is so many ld closing they have not so many places to sell so much. Crying or Very sad 
If they dont make them may be they can make more releases in a year of production glass?

Endangered Trolls is saying it's not the end (bolding mine) cheers 

"I’ve heard rumours that 2014 will bring even more new unique patterns. Further to that the patterns will change every few months. I have no idea if this is fact or fiction but just the idea of it excites me. On a side note, for those panicking following rumours that there will be no more uniques; it’s nonsense."

I wondered if they will do it the same way in the future they did it with the s&b beads. A higher quantity of beads that could be matched with each other, but not producing as many as the production beads so they remain "special". And when they see that people like a kind of bead, they are producing (or let produce) more of them.
For me the s&b still are one highlight of this (bead-) year!

I totaly agree with you Fuzzy! Almost all the ooaks I buy now are second hand. I realy don't like the prize 2 on Ooaks.

Agree
I also don't like that so many of the newer uniques are "see through".  I like the opaque glass better.

Have to agree. I like the way the opaque gives the bead depth and just is more appealing.
