market research...

Hot and windy all day...good news is - my Buddhist Prayer Flags released their message to the world, if anyone was listening.

Another day cooped up inside (except for two trips to the GrubShack). Played around more with the notion of an online store. Want to make sure I can get quality merchandise from a third party vendor. Before I make that move....decided to try an experiment...offering some value added product for a short time.

Starting today....I am going to do a limited edition run of personally handmade Field Lab tshirts - exactly like the ones I have featured in photos (grey shirt with red lettering). 100 shirts individually stenciled and numbered, made with love by yours truly. (number 001 is already spoken for) This edition is available for purchase, first come - first served.

To order a genuine hand made Field Lab tshirt, including domestic shipping (international shipping extra): Write your name, email address (so I can acknowledge receipt of payment and delivery time - this information will not be sold) and shipping address and shirt size (child size S,M,or L....adult size S,M,L,XL,XXL) on a piece of paper. Fold up the paper with a 20 dollar bill inside (no checks) per tshirt - limit 2 tshirts per order. The first 50 orders get a special gift. Send your order to:

John Wells
2500 Mailbox Rd.
Alpine, TX 79830

For those leery of sending cash through the mail....you may send the payment through PayPal to lifeoffthegrid@yahoo.com Send me an email to specify size. I encourage purchasers to email a photograph of each shirt being worn by its' new owner for me to post on the blog. More information will be sent with your order.

Thanks in advance - let's see how this goes... 89,102,67,0,W
