Great ideas!

Loving the simple white on black "The revolution is You" t-shirt idea ladieu. I think that is definitely money in the bank. It's also understated yet thought provoking!

footpad: the zippo is cool - I haven't seen anyone else suggest that yet.

How about baseball hats with "The revolution is you"? White on black again for impact.

SW,
discussion yesterday on a post about Shemaughs - got lots of traffic - a shemaugh with an ant theme (marching army as the pattern) could get some interest.

That would be awesome!  I will look into it.  :)

New item: a firesteel/striker combo, have the striker embossed/impressed (?) with the tsp brand name.

Like this:


from: http://firesteel.com/

Just get the firesteel drilled so they can be tired together.

On the shemaghs - TAD Gear (who specialize in very small runs of high quality stuff) made one with skull & crossbones that was well received.  (http://www.aacblog.com/?p=1413)  Others have done custom work as well (Tactical Tailor's - http://soldiersystems.net/blog1/wp-content/uploads/2010/03/tactical_tailor_shemagh.jpg).

I'd definitely find a way to get the TSP logo and possibly even "The Revolution Is You" in there in addition to the ants.

Sometime down the road, when the money is just rolling in and there's time to do other stuff, give a thought to doing some clothing in "technical fabrics" (think under-armor and lots of the stuff made by REI for travel/camping/etc. - much better than cotton in many ways).

Sis, what about this with TSP name/logo? (Of course, my first choice would be The Revolution is You on it somewhere. But you knew that.  :D )

Freedom Gardens is giving one away with their name on it, which is why I thought it might be good for TSP.

I want one for myself and more for some gardening friends.

With the success of the OHT-SAK.  For the next knife, how about one of the Leatherman c33/c55 series of knives which have a the carabiner/bottleopener tool as standard.  As shown in this c33 YouTube.

Though I would go for the specific model with the detachable screwdriver bits ;)

I had one of the Previous BX models.   55 BX with bit kit,  BIG, HEAVY and Awesome.  I lost it after only having it for a couple of weeks unfortunately.   

They are great knives.

After hearing Jack talk about wearable wealth I ended up with a couple silver bracelets and a necklace. After much bargain hunting and coupon use of course.

Driving around yesterday the sun glinting off my bracelet got me smiling and thinking "living that better life if times get tough, or even if they don't".

Thinking about get that engraved on it, which made me think it might be a possible gear shop item. Not sure if the logistics or price of something like this could work, just a thought.
