Joys of merchandise

Yes. We Can.Holy cow – so, you can easily put the “Yes, We Can” icon on an apron (and t-shirt, and mug, and poster…). Would anyone be interested? Aprons are US-made, 35% cotton/65% poly, in white, tan, or yellow. (I’m thinking tan would be best.) I’ll place a bulk order and sell them a couple dollars over my cost, and call it a fundraiser. Who wants one?

I’ll probably also do a poster or two, and maybe business cards. When we man the table at the market this summer (oh…did I mention that? Who wants to help?), we could all wear our shirts/aprons!

I’m occasionally allowed to geek out over “stuff,” right?

    I can’t table (sorry, I’m way too shy for that! I suck at it), but I’ll do whatever else you want!

    Those t-shirts rock hard core. You’re giving me all KINDS of ideas, lady!

    Count me in, Emily! I might even pony up for a couple extra for others. 🙂 And I’m with Heather — love the t-shirts, too.

    I’m working on this – it’s a couple steps more complicated than I’d thought, but I think we can make this happen!

    The “Yes. We Can.” logo and aprons are fantastic! I’ll need at least 4 – one each for me and my 12-year-old daughter, and a pair for my brother and SIL who didn’t support Obama but do can, and will enjoy them (and probably wear them!). I vote for the tan color.

    I may want a t-shirt, too.

    Emily, I found your site when I was looking for vegetarian recipes. The man I’m dating has a daughter (also 12) who doesn’t eat meat, and I want to be able to cook healthy things that everyone will eat. Thank you so much for the vegetarian recipes menu!

    So what was that about the table?

    We’ve been invited to staff a table at the Farmers’ Market this summer, answering questions about canning. Wanna help?

    Maybe once as a service to Preserving Traditions. I’m usually topped out with gardening and preserving activities in the summer. If we can get a big enough list to rotate through, it might work.

    Maybe someone (wonder who?) could work up a flyer with basic instructions and directions to websites. Might be able to sell ads from stores who sell canning goods if you have a legal structure to take in money, which I guess you must if you are going to sell T-shirts.

    Downtown Home and Garden (Ball, Mason, Zwek jars, heirloom seeds,etc) might help sponsor the cost of aprons/tees. Put me down for 2 aprons.

    Who are you talking to about printing them? And what kind of price are you looking at?

    Count me in for whatever you end up ordering. I’ll probably order several of each for gifts. I love having smart “yes we can” friends. 🙂
