I put the 'T' in Tailgate...
... "T" shirt, that is. About four months ago, I opened a tailgate shop on cafepress.com, a store that lets you sell your own designs on their items, and you get a cut of the profit. I think it's a great idea, particularly since the designer (me, in this case) doesn't have to pay anything -- at least for their "basic" shop, anyway.
I came up with a few designs, opened my store, and waited. After a few days, I lost interest, and kinda forgot about it. Then a few days ago, I get this email:
Hi from CafePress.com!
We wanted to let you know that you made a sale at one or more of
your shops! Way to go!
I was shocked. And sure enough, a nice gentleman from Georgia bought two shirts from my store. The profit I made was negligible, but I thought it was pretty cool that I sold something. Maybe with football season coming up, I'll sell a couple more.
So go buy stuff!Posted by Kevin at July 23, 2004 05:59 PM
