Truth-Be-Told Mirrors are back!

Despite multiple reports of mirror malfunction (you know the stories) Truth-Be-Told continues to ride high on a wave of Goblin Market popularity, returning the public’s gaze with an ever-unflinching stare.  The Truth-Be-Told name and reputation remain somehow untarnished, as the company refuses to be blamed for user foolishness (eg switching to Bold as Brass setting when user has already been diagnosed as having a fatal allergy to the truth).

Upon reflection, we believe the all-new Truth-Be-Told Gift Set* could be the perfect stocking filler for the forthcoming festive season. Available in bestselling Bold as Brass setting, as well as the perennially popular White Liar for those who prefer a state of happy delusion, now you can give the gift of truth (or lies)!

* Gift set contains: Truth-Be-Told pocket mirror, Truth-Be-Told pinback button badge, Truth-Be-Told miniature notecard, and miniaturised edition of Enchanted Times Mini: Upon Reflection


Marketplace: Truth-Be-Told Pocket Mirrors now available!

Stalwart Goblin Market Guild registered vendors, Truth-Be-Told Mirrors have recovered in style from the recent slur against their brand name (following the naked Emperor debacle) with the introduction of a range of handy pocket mirrors.  Bestselling variants ‘Bold as Brass’ (left) and ‘White Liar’ (right) are available to all seeking the truth
(or a variation thereof).

Marketplace: Enchanted Times Mini #2.5: sweetest thing?

Barely moments after announcing EEMS new and controversial sponsorship deal for their recent postage stamps, further EEMS survival tactics have emerged. In the latest mini edition of the Enchanted Times, an extended editorial looks at the role of Hansel & Gretel March in our struggling economy. Once known solely for their survival following numerous harrowing instances of abuse and neglect as young children, the siblings have recently experienced a meteoric rise to the top of the the Enchanted Realms’ commercial sector. As joint Managing Directors of the astoundingly successful Fast-As-You-Can Corporation, the public immediately bought into their ingenious gingerbread-infused weight loss plan.  The Marches have now built on this success by purchasing an independent (but fully & officially sanctioned) EEMS concession – the first of its kind – offering an alternative delivery service: Fast-As-You-Can Courier Company.

In Enchanted Times Mini #2.5 vol ii an extended editorial examines the question of whether or not the Gingerbread Man’s reputation as a potential psychopathic killer has any founding in reality,  the CoCo‘s practice of rehabilitating escaped Gingerbread Men, and the growing March ‘monopoly’.  In addition, this issue includes a voucher for the reader to claim a FREE (+ postage) sachet of Fast-As-You-Can CoCo Cocoa! A homicidal gingerbread reading list is also provided.

Whatever conclusions you draw after reading this issue, please remember to always approach any baked goods with extreme caution, for your own safety.
