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,
