This is one of the two Thank You cards I drew this weekend. This one is was for my friend, Ferris, who bought an OG white 1.0 t-shirt on Black Friday. Ferris is also a local business owner. She’s a massage therapist and owns and operates Inhale Exhale Bodywork here in San Jose. I’ve already reached out to her so I can get my first professional massage in the near future
Incase you missed the sign on the front page or my Instagram posts earlier this evening... I put my t-shirts on sale for $25 each (including shipping & handling) by using coupon code IGOT5ONIT at checkout. The offer is limited to t-shirts currently in stock and runs until December 25, 2020. This sale is in response to Black Friday, (which was today) Small Business Saturday, and all live vending opportunities being shut down due to covid. It’s a small effort to make a few sales before the end of the year and get rid of some inventory that’s been sitting in boxes all year.
I also made my FRANKIE MCFLY kiss-cut stickers 2 for $5. No coupon necessary.
My cousin Reyna sent me this picture earlier today. It's Arely and I standing in front our booth at the San Jose Jazz Summer Fest last year. The sales weren't great that weekend but it was still a lot of fun being there and meeting new vendors. I really miss working events. The plan was to do more events this year before the 'Vid fucked that all away.
But I made a little bit of progress on the store. FYI: the website I'm working on is not FRANKIEMCFLY.COM. It's a dummy site that I'm learning to use before moving my domain name over.
Last year, before I first went out to sell my t-shirts at an event, I had made two t-shirt displays from a long sheet of two-inch gray foam. I only had one t-shirt design, the 1.0, and it came in black or white. I didn't print any Smalls in white so when I went to go make the displays I was forced to use Mediums. One year later I'm still using the same displays but with more t-shirt styles. All is well until I realized that the Medium sized shirts sell faster than the Smalls. A couple times I've had to pull the Medium shirt off the display because it was that last Medium in that color. Now that I'm running low on inventory I thought it would be a good time to finally cut the foam displays down a size. If only dropping a shirt size in real life were that easy.
The list below are the names of people who bought shirts from me on the first day I sold them. It was Friday, June 1st 2018 at the Subzero Street Fair. All I had for sale were my logo tees, the 1.0's, available in black and white. Not a single person, who didn't know me, bought a t-shirt. Only my friends did. I could have easily sold zero and given up on t-shirts entirely after the festival. Instead I sold 12 shirts that weekend and decided to keep the party going...
