Totally Groovy Awesome T-Shirt of Awesomeness
I told you last week that these were going fast and that was no lie. I guess lowering the price to TENBUX was the sweet spot? Our man Andrew Evans worked closely with artist Seth Patrick to design a comfortable, awesome, and affordable shirt.
This year we've got a 100% cotton dark gray shirt screen-printed with the Maker Faire North Carolina logo on front and Seth Patrick's Maker's Knife art on back. Groovy, right?!
