Hi there. I'm new to the community as well. I first was introduced to Windstones in the early 1990's. My mom and I were passing through a collectibles shop at our local mall that was going out of business. They had several pieces then that I regret not taking my mom up on her offer to buy me.

I would continue to drool over the pieces in other collectible stores until almost 2000 before I would make my first Windstone purchases - the Black Unicorn Mother and the Baby Pegasus. After that point there was no way I wasn't going to collect those families. Some I managed to find in stores, but most I ended up getting off eBay.

I only had one mishap with buying off eBay. When the Black Male Unicorn was shipped to me the seller didn't use quite enough packing so his tail and horn came off. (He refunded some of my money because I really wanted to keep the piece) With much trepidation I bent the base of the horn back into shape so it would fit right and used super glue to put as much of the tail back as I had.

The funny thing is when the Black Unicorn Male arrived I was having to go to my post office anyway to pick up my held mail from a vacation. When I was pulling into the parking lot I had the thought that "Rayden's Requiem" was waiting for me - and he was. "Rayden's Requiem" is what I named the Black Unicorn Male.

You can kind of see the damage here and where I had to touch up the paint. I wasn't sure on painting so I used a Sharpie.

Here's Rayden with his family (they don't have names) in their home in my computer cabinet.

Living next to Rayden is my Pegasus family Sky Singer, Storm Singer and the other two names elude me right now.

My husband also has the Winged Wolf, but it's in the other room so missed getting photographed.

In the last community post ruffiandog asked about some older retired Windstones. In one of my responses I mentioned taking time out of my day to make a list of retired pieces. Well I did and here it is. The information on the list is according to the Windstone Editions Encyclopedia at Astra Castle.
