Ryan's Story Submitted with The Stickers:

I was raised by a saintly woman of medium build, and a brazen father of short stature. The latter a vietnam war veteran, evangelical christian and closeted homosexual. When I was a child I used wear dresses and play "house". As I grew older I realized that this was not a societal norm. At age sixteen I ran away from home and haven't been back since.

Creepier than skeletons, this lot of 5 Arian style doll heads have blue eyes, blonde hair, long wire "spinal columns" coming out of the necks, and a total of 9 hands.

I received these from a friend as a birthday present. He thought that I should use them to create artistic clothing. The thing is, I don't make artistic clothing. I make creative costumes, functional hats and unnecessary lingerie, but no wearable art that uses blue-eyed doll heads.

Rebekah's Story That Came With the Ceramic Doll Sculpture

This may not be for anyone squeamish or any man at all. In 1997, I got to observe a really amazing event. The vasectomy of my now ex-husband. The doctor was all too willing to let me watch. H, as he shall be known, was invited to lay on the exam table, his junk exposed and properly shaved. The doctor chuckled as he taped his member to his lower (hair covered, I might add) abdomen. He was then given a shot of anesthetic.

Rebekah's Story That Came With Ceramic Necklace

I once went to an estate sale that was located at a home that was once owned by a family of zombies. I purchased three photos, one of the father zombie, one of the baby zombie, and one of their 3 pet brains.

Cory's Story that came with Wedding Day Disaster Barbie

For my story, I chose to share an embarrassing one. I took my son to the grocery store one day when he was around 2 or 3. He was at that stage where he still kind of wobbled along really slowly when he walked but he was grouchy and defiant and sometimes it was easier to be patient than try to carry him and suffer the inevitable tantrum.

In lieu of a story, Nik sent this poem about the bARTer Sauce show at Sideshow studios in California

Twas the day of the 'Sauce
and everyone was invited
people came from miles around
all were excited
Some discovered the 'Sauce
for the very first time
Others had always been there
and sometimes can rhyme
There was talk of toast,
donkeys, miniature frogs, and tobacco
smurf porn, fisting cooking shows

Victor's story that was submitted with The Hoarde I

This is the tale of  V.  A mexican, misunderstood, artist. He's always been a hobby artist, but it would seem like he rather live for art. He always tries to craft new ideas...new gadgets, drawings...

One of the things he's done for years, which he likes and enjoys most; is black ink painting and pencil drawing. V is the only child born in a common family. He was raised by a strong Mother and a lovely father. A very interesting contrast. He never felt loneliness; instead, he developed ways to be creative - He was raised in ways that among other things, made him very confident.

Kimberly's Story that Came with the Creepy Angel Trading Card:

I grew up in northern Michigan surrounded by white pine and wild black raspberry bushes. Every summer my family picked raspberries for pies and jams. We sold them roadside to vacationers who traveled “up north” to their summer cottages. We usually made enough money to last the year.

Eva's story that came with Animal Vocabulary Toasts from Japan

OK so I'm a tad intimidated by this story thing, it being my first time and all. I'll tell a story about stories.

When I was a kid my grandfather used to tell me stories all the time. They always started "Once upon a time there was a girl named Eva" and they never really went anywhere but that didn't matter because I was the main character and that was exciting in itself.
