ANT HATS ARE IN THE STORE!!!!!!!!
« on: December 16, 2009, 01:07:46 PM »
We received our ant hats (I literally just got home from picking them up).  They are soooooo beautiful.  Pics are coming shortly, and all of you patient people who have been waiting for your previously ordered hats - they will be shipped tomorrow (I have dozens of these orders to fill, so they will all be packed tonight, and shipped out tomorrow).

YAY!

Love the hat and will be ordering one.  I realize everybody has design ideas (most of which stink) but how about a t-shirt with just the ant on the front and a small TSP logo on the sleeve?

Actually, most ideas are great ones.  They just can't all be put into production immediately.  I'm considering a couple of different t-shirts for the future, and I'll keep yours in mind (most definitely).  Had you noticed that the TSP t-shirt has an ant on the sleeve?

Yipee!  @@@@@@ - that's not the "at" sign - it's me doing cartwheels (well the only way I can but still...so excited!!)

Thanks for all your hard work SW - I'm sure (please note the sarcasm) that you needed one more thing to do the week before Christmas plus standing in line at the PO will be great fun.  Bless you girl for the extra effort.

LOLOLOLOLOLOL  omg, I about fell out of my chair reading that.  Cartwheels.  *snorts*  Too funny!

I printed out the postage for some of these, then ran out of envelopes (dang it - i never have enough envelopes ::) ).  I'll run over to the post office right now and get the rest of what I need, and send these little caps on their way.  TBM, yer gonna LOVE these.  They're really, really pretty.  And the buckles on the back (where they're adjustable) are honestly the nicest I think I've ever seen on a hat.

All I want for Christmas is my anty hat, my anty hat, my anty hat...

and it looks like I'll get my wish if the USPO does it's job (SW did hers!).  Yipee - still can't wait!

(Maybe I should rewrite this because it makes my life look sort of pathetic but oh well - I'm an ant and I don't care what others think because well I'm an ant.  And no I have not been in the egg nog! DH had surgery yesterday and I'm living on about 3 hours of sleep.  Wo-hoo! Time for some egg nog now!)

Here's me proudly sporting my ant hat:



People ask "why an ant?" and then you can tell them about the grasshopper and the ant.

Well, While I'm waiting for the "Great SAK Robbery" to be solve, and the M3 medic bags to be shipped in, I noticedmy ant hat is starting to show its age.  So I ordered a backup hat.

Everyone who sees that hat, loves it :happydance:
And they ask what it means.

So I tell them the story of the ant and the grasshopper(the Jack Spirko"grasshopper:it's what's for dinner" version ::) ), and tell them about TSP.

And I end it by tell them:"though the hat feels great covering your head. It's nothing when compared to the info that's put into your head!" ;D

Chris, this is a very old thread.  Jack never could quite get the right mix of people running the merch end of his brand, so things like hats have fallen to the wayside.  Occasionally, occasionally he'll have a batch of t-shirts made up and sell those through his podcast's blog page.

Stay tuned, something new is sure to show up.

Yep, there is not currently a TSP Gear Shop.  (Dunno about "right mix of people" -- it's inherently a difficult project to sell TSP-branded merchandise and bring in enough cash for both the Gear Shop operator and Jack.)

I still have my Ant Hat, though.  :)

I wish I still had my Ant Hat.  I had one of the first batches with the ant profile.  I loved that hat.  No idea where it ended up.
