It’s been three years since The Out And Abouter first went live, and we’ve got a new project underway. One that we hope will deliver even more shared laughs at the absurd, in new ways on this site. To help get that rolling we’re doing what all major media outlets do to welcome a fresh idea: we’re selling totes.
Made right here in Canada, by women who are either underemployed or recent arrivals looking for work, the bags are perfect for anyone you know who likes to get out, or about. And maybe even, on occasion, does both at the time. They’re also a great way to support independent, upstart writing, in the seemingly endless work of mining sarcasm for hope.
In addition to giving you bragging rights as one of the first supporters of this site, every person who purchases a tote will be entered into a draw to have their name appear in a future article, as the appellation of one of the (favourably depicted) fictitious characters in a satirical post. You’ll also received a signed copy of that post, as well as an additional, signed favourite of your choice from our extensive back catalogue.
So order up! They’re going fast, and purchases made this weekend are still estimated to arrive in the US before Christmas (shipping is $10 to the American Massif, $3 to Canadia, where you have a few more days before the official Xmas deadline, but should probably not wait given the current delays at Canada Post).
Thanks, as always, for all of your support. New things are coming, and old things continuing.
