Walden Effect t-shirts (finally) for sale

Mom in her Walden Effect tshirtAs you can see in this photo of my mom, we've had our Walden Effect t-shirts for two solid weeks.  I've been holding out on you because I can't seem to figure out whether we'll be able to send the t-shirts for a couple of dollars as first class mail or if we have to pay $5 for priority mail.  I finally decided to just let the first few customers buy them at the cheap price ($10), and if it costs more to mail the shirts, we'll raise the price later.  So buy them while they're hot!

Here are some quick stats so you'll see whether our t-shirt is right up your alley:

  • Color is "serene green" --- as pictured.  I chose the color because it's light enough to work in outside in the sun, but earthy enough that those pesky weeding stains will be less visible.
  • T-shirt is "2000 Gildan Ultra Cotton", which is 100% cotton, unisex, 6.1 oz.
  • Printing is on the front in black and gray.  The image is based on a petroglyph, tweaked to suit our permaculture farm.  You can see a more head-on image of the design here.
  • Sizes are M, L, XL, and XXL.  Be sure to note your size with your order!  I decided to merge the slight additional cost for the XXL into the overall price, so all of the t-shirts cost $10 apiece (with free shipping in the U.S.)  But I ordered fewer XXL and XL than perhaps I should have --- if that's your size, you might want to buy now.  (If you're medium or large, you can probably wait a while.)

I hope you'll enjoy our t-shirts and then email me an image of your Walden Effect style in your own garden.  I'd love to post a collage of all of our loyal readers on their home turf.  (If you hate the design, though, don't feel in any way obligated to buy one.)


Not interested in t-shirts?  You can also support the Walden Effect by telling your friends about our homemade chicken waterer.

Can you post a picture of the design on the shirt? Your mom's kind of turned away from the camera.

Whoops. You can tell how closely I'm reading.

No worries --- as much as Mark and I write, I figure we're lucky if most people read half of the posts. :-)

Your shirt got good reviews down at the coffee shop. ;)

Do you ship internationally? I clicked through, but couldn't see any shipping options. I'm in Australia.

I was assuming it wouldn't be worth it to folks outside the U.S. to buy a shirt. As best I can guess, it would cost an extra $13 to mail one to Australia. :-/ But if you really, really want one, let me know and I'll send you a special invoice. Clearly, I need to make bumper stickers or something that could be cheaply mailed internationally.
