    Default Items for sale?

    I was wondering if there would be enough interest from members to have some items available for sale that would display either a beesource.com logo or a combination of logo and phrase? Shirts, hats, the ever abundant mug. It would be another way to support the site.

    I would like BIG yellow "beesource" button to wear to meetings.

    A bumper sicker w/ a slogan (Bee buzzzz, Beekeepers are BEST, ect.) might create a few "hits" from non-keepers.

    The above could be "sold" or given as "rewards".

    Sure Barry. Good idea. A Cyber Catolog to save on printing expense? Orders on line through Paypal?

    Does Beesource have a logo? I dabble in the logo design business, and probably others do as well.

    Default Sure, better caps than Mann Lake makes please

    And thank you sir for answering my message. Shirts, coffee cups, jackets, would all be great and if you wanted to be real fancy, we need a physical binder with plastic sheets inside that could be used as a record pad in a beeyard, something that would allow the sheets to be removed and filed and that would take a waterproof pen of some kind. That might just save the lives of a few push pins and can lids doting a beeyard or two.

    But anything with "Beesource" on it i would wear, wave or hang on the review mirror. Don't forget the bumberstickers...

    Missing my old t-shirt

    I would love to have some funny t-shirts and bumper stickers to chose from. Many years ago my daughter and wife bought me this great t-shirt. It was bright yellow and had "BEEKEEPER" in large letters, under that in slightly smaller letters it said something to the effect of "If you see me running you should seriously consider running also." Now that I think of it, that's kind of a metaphor for our current situation.

    At any rate I think it's a great idea as I always enjoy win-win situations. We get some good stuff and you get funding to keep up your great work.
    I arise in the morning torn between a desire to save the world and a desire to savor it. Makes it hard to plan the day.

    Yep, absolutely, I'd love to drink my morning cup of Joe sans honey from a nice beesource mug!

    "Beekeeper-
    If you see me running you should seriously consider running also."
    - I really like that one and would buy a shirt that says that!
    I followed a similar thread a couple years ago about this. Some of them I kept in a Word file-

    "Honey Made Me What I Am Today"
    "What the World Needs Now is Honey Sweet Honey"
    "WWJD? Eat Comb Honey!"
    "Underdog's Pill Had Honey Centers"
    "My Honey Makes Me Happy"
    "Like to Eat? Thank the Honeybees. One in four bites you take comes from honeybee-pollinated foods."

    There hasn't been one, but currently we are designing one.

    Navajo potters and silversmiths and carvers stop by my office with some really nice stuff. A guy I've bought pottery from was in town and came by. I asked him if he could make a couple of pieces with the Beesource.com logo that was on the old site (the one with the leaves) He looked at it and did some sketching in my office and said "Sure. I'll put some bees around it too." I was going to (will?) send one to Barry and others. That was several months ago. Somewhere out on the rez is a really nice pot or two, either finished or about to be started or something. I have no doubt it will show up some day.

    In the meantime, a nice coffee cup will do nicely.

    (And stop grinning, Michael.)

    Default Bee stuff

    I like to wear bee stuff, but there seems to be a real shortage of good stuff. Every year Betterbee makes a special t-shirt and I buy it.

    I'd like Beesource T's, but it needs more on it than just the logo.

    Ooh, I would love to see some nice bee pottery. Not with a logo, but just a bee theme. Could you post a photo if they come back with anything?

    I'll put one up when I get a pot. Here's one I got a while back. The ones he's making are much smaller, modeled after a simple honey pot.
