Hey there Friends!

As you may know, I am a long-time Kossack (UID 3725) and one of the owners of Eclecticity, Chicago's Snazziest Store, and really, one of the bluest stores I know of: we advertise on Air America, we host benefits for blue candidates and blue causes.  We're blue through and through.  

We've been having a hard time in this sudden turn of the economy, and are now looking for your help to keep our heads above water.  

I've never done this before, and I'm not terribly comfortable doing it now, but I remember what Gary Trauner told me at the Daily Kos Convention in Chicago.  People came up to him after the election and told him if they knew how close it was, they would have come out and vote, or volunteer, or helped out in various different ways.  

We're a blue community, and we help our own.  

So, in that spirit, let me tell you how you can help us and be the coolest kid on the block doing it.

We have nifty disappearing mugs.  You pour in hot fluid, coffee, say, or tea, and stuff happens on the cup.  We have the "I Have a Dream" mug.  What it is is a coffee mug with the 2004 electoral map on it.  Pour in hot fluids and all the red states turn blue.

We also have the "Disappearing Civil Liberties" mug, which features the Bill of Rights.  Pour in hot fluids, and watch your rights disappear.

Finally, we have the "Global Warming" mug.  It's a map of the world, where the coast lines disappear when hot fluids are poured in.

We're having a Kossack only sale.  We're giving Kossacks 30% off our retail prices, and we'll combine shipping if you buy in quantity.  Email me at eclecticity at gmail dot com for details.

I apologize for the unabashedly commercial posting, but we're in trouble, and I'd rather exhaust all our options before we ponder our next steps.

Thanks in advance for your support,

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
