Second chance to Shop for Barack!

EDIT: Okay, now you've missed the stoop sale. Unless you didn't, in which case, thanks! But there are still leftover t-shirt transfers to be had, all you need to do is email.

ORIGINAL POST: The "Shop for Barack" stoop sale today brought in over a grand for the Obama-Biden campaign! But there's still a LOT of great stuff left, (including quite a few t-shirt iron-ons), so the organizers have generously decided to extend the sale to tomorrow (Sunday)! If you weren't able to make it out today, then stop by tomorrow.

Just a short stroll from the Bergen St. F train: 44 Tompkins place.

And again, if you live outside the NYC area, or just can't make it tomorrow, but would still like an exclusive Skillman original Obama '08 t-shirt, just email me and I'll send you one if you promise to make a small donation to the campaign. (Honor system, people.)

Shop for Barack!

Not to get all political again, but if you're anything like me, you can hardly think of anything but politics these days anyway, so what's the harm? Anyway, if you're in the New York City/Brooklyn vicinity this Saturday, some friends are having a "SHOP FOR BARACK" stoop sale, selling lots of books, clothes, movies, furniture, toys, nick-knacks, bric-a-brac, and, if the flyer is to be believed, grapes, all to raise money for the home stretch of the Obama-Biden campaign. TONS of people are donating stuff to the sale, so it should be a really good selection, and of course it's for a good cause. It's worth mentioning here because, in addition to some used books and things, I'll also be donating iron-on t-shirt transfers of that Obama '08 graphic I made a while back. It's cheaper and easier than selling actual t-shirts, because they're one-size-fits-all so you don't have to worry about keeping various sizes in stock. Just iron directly on to your favorite plain t-shirt.

Anyway, if you're in the area, stop by 44 Tompkins place in Brooklyn—I think it'll be starting up around 11 AM or thereabouts. (If you're not in the area but want a t-shirt transfer anyway, email me and I'll see what I can do... I imagine I'll have a bunch left over after Saturday.)
