Dealers Room
Conflikt 5 will once again have a fabulous dealers room.

We are extremely pleased to announce the following confirmed dealers for Conflikt 5!
  • Friends of Filk
Friends of Filk is a non-profit volunteer organization which was created by filkers in the Pacific Northwest who could not afford to travel to other regions to hear filk. Rather than having to individually come up with airfare and hotel expenses to hear filkers from other parts of the country, we said, "Why not raise money to bring THEM here?" At the same time, the folks at Firebird expressed their intention to stop taking their dealers table to science fiction conventions and we were faced with the prospect of a filk drought in our area, or having to pay to have our filk shipped to our various homes. With some negotiation, we formed Friends of Filk which would keep the Firebird tapes (yes, this was back in the dark ages when filk came on cassettes and we huddled around the gaslight listening to our tapes) available at local conventions and the funds raised from the table sales would go to bringing music guests to our conventions in the Pacific Northwest. Over the years we have sponsored guests such as Meg Davis, Heather Alexander, Michael Longcor, Peter Beagle, Tempest, Golden Bough, The Duras Sisters, Uffington Horse, Tania Opland & Mike Freeman at conventions in Portland, Oregon, Seattle, Spokane, and Vancouver, Washington. We now carry CDs from Prometheus Music as well as CDs from local filk performers in addition to merchandise from Firebird.

So feel free to stop by the table, buy some music, or....volunteer some time and have some input into who should be our next music guest!
  • Bansai8 Creations
  • Bansai8 Creations is the result of an engineer's love of sewing natural fabrics, leather and whimsy. I enjoy the design and fabrication process to creating new & unique items, and am thrilled when others appreciate my attention to detail and quality materials and workmanship.
    I draw inspiration from many sources, including friends & clients asking 'can you make... ?'. And some of my interests in Sci-Fi, Steampunk & Fae are translated into a variety of goods including silk screened guitar/ukelele straps, wrist bands, and hand embossed silk velvet scarves & leather goods, and cat toys.
    I design & fabricate everything myself in my smoke-free home in Seattle, WA, and sell through my websites: and and my Etsy shop 'bansai8creations', and sometimes vending at local conventions or concerts.
