Election Etsy Finds

i just bought this wonderful poster on etsy. have you seen all the election stuff people are making? there is a ton of it. i love that you can buy handcrafted election stuff. it seems that this election is really inspiring the craft world.

from my little search through etsy it seems that Obama is the most inspiring although there is still a lot of McPalin fans in there. boooooo. really? you never know who is lurking in your community. but what i found super surprising was how many shops had items supporting both sides. really? you are so indifferent to the enormity of this election and the effect it will have on us and the entire world that you sit back and try and make $6.50 on a pendant or $2.50 on a button instead of making a real statement? these people may just be more evil than the McPalin supporters.

Here are few items i really liked.

If I had a little girl she would be in pony tails everyday until the election.
One Plaid Aunt

don't forget to make sure you are registered. you can call your county election office and they can check in about 1min.

i never thought to look on etsy! i can't believe it. here's the shirt i bought: http://www.merchco-online.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=506_518&products_id=3105

it's a nice blend of indie rock (mr. november is a song by the national) and good design!

i hope you get a good shirt too. we will all wear them on the 4th!

very cool stuff! but i heard that wearing stuff with the candidates on it will get you escorted from the polling place! go vote, but zip up the jacket while there!

thanks cinderelly. the thing about the tshirts at polling places is only true in some states. i hear that the mass spread of this warning is part of voter fraud, another way to keep people away from the polls. You show up with an Obama shirt on and some guy tells you as you are walking in that you can't go in in that. You are now out of time on your lunch break and have to skip it. yucky.

It is election day, I was at the polling place at 7:00 a.m. when it opened. It was exciting to see so many people fired up wanting to make a difference. Get out there and vote everyone!
