So I was in the mood to do something creative tonight, and seeing as I graduated with a degree in Geography, I decided to create a map showing the locations of popular silicone tail makers. But what I really want to do with this is see the relationship between where the products get made and where the customer is who buys these tails. I found it also interesting to note that there is a higher concentration of tail makers in Florida than anywhere else.

Note: I do not know the location of MerBellas and Finfolk Productions. If you do, please post below. Thanks.

Update: Finfolk and MerBellas locations are updated.

Anyways here's the map. Let me know if you want to be added to it, if you have a tail from any of these makers. (This is also only for the forums use only, I do not plan to sell or do anything with this data. It is just for Mernetwork's educational purposes only!).

Just so you know, Finfolk isn't located in Florida. I'm pretty sure they're in Minnesota. Or somewhere similar.

It would be cool to add different types of tail makers too in different colored markers

I'll look into that. I want to do current tail makers, there are a few on our list that need to be updated. I also plan to add websites and contact info. We may already have a list of tail makers but I think that looking at it from a geographical perspective, and all on one site will definitely help!

Business locations still unknown: FinFun Mermaid, The2Tails, 3Fins

Tail making status unknown:

I still don't have FinFun's location. But I would love to list them on the map. And I'm focusing on tails you can swim in (ones that have a monofin).

Thank you for the recommendations. I have your book Raina and I will look at those listings too.

Nice! Also just FYI, all the tailmaker locations are listed under their company name on the tailmaker page (merfolktails.info for easier referral) :) The only two I couldn't find states for were FinFun and AppleJack Apparel, so I've sent out emails to them asking for that info. I know people like to know the location of these places for various reasons, so hopefully that will be helpful.
