Ellis Paul lapel pins!

Or at least a large part of it......

Folks,

You'll be happy to hear that I just placed an order for our discussion board buttons...which morphed into a nicer metal lapel pin. The good news is that they're only costing $2.92 each. The bad news is that the minimum I was able to order was 100. When I get the pins (2-3 weeks; sorry they probably won't arrive in time for The Chocolate Church show), I'll go to the post office to determine what it will cost to mail them, and try to find the most inexpensive mailing envelope that I can. Then I will let you know what your cost will be. I'll do my best to keep it to $5 or less. I'll also bring them to shows I attend, but there aren't any shows on my horizon right now.

Looking forward to a show where there's 50 folks or more in the audience wearing their ep pins!

YIPEE!!! Thanks Karen!
This will be much classier than white paper dots.
Looking forward to looking for them at future EP shows...

Thanks Karen!!!

I guess I'll wear a white paper dot to Ellis's show this Thursday at Makor, but count me in for a button!

Thanks guys and gals. IF by some chance they happen to arrive before June 12, maybe I can somehow get them to Sue Ellen to bring to The Chocolate Church show....odds are slim though, so say a prayer....

I would pay the cost of overnighting them to me...

But the show in Bath is on June 10...

Crap. The odds just got worse. (What was I thinking....can I continue to use jet lag as an excuse? How long can one use jet lag as an excuse?)

The lapel pins have arrived and they are totally awesome!

To place an order, e-mail me at kmzundel@comcast.net and I'll provide my address where you can send $5 for each lapel pin. As soon as I get your order, I'll send it out.

I'm telling you.....they are awesome!

Any chance these will be available for sale on the merch table at Ellis's future shows?

Also, the suspense is killing me. Anyway you can post a photo of these EP pins out here? I know you CAN, so I guess the question really is: Would you please consider posting a photo of the new pins, oh folk goddess extraordinaire?

Folks,

I think it may be time to do a lapel pin re-order. It's been two years! :shock: I'll investigate cost and see if it's feasible... :)

Karen,

How does one qualify for an EP lapel pin? I'm not sure if this makes me eligible, but I've had several bouts of PELDS (forunately have recovered each time with your expert advice!), am currently suffering a new version of the affliction called NDIMA (no dates in my area) and have yet to remedy that one, and I know the lyrics to every song on every album by heart. If there are other requirements, please advise and I will proceed accordingly!

Mtn Gal,

No qualifying necessary. :) If I purchase more, I'll simply sell them to whomever wants one at a price to recoup my investment (last time they sold for $5 each). :)

Hi everyone,

I re-ordered today. Hopefully they have all the ordering info from the 1st order. The guy I spoke to today said they keep ordering records for 2 years.....and I placed the 1st order on June 2, 2006. :shock: Keep your fingers crossed.... :)

Folks,

The lapel pins are on their way (I think). Just to refresh your memories and for the benefit of the new folks, this is what they look like. They're about 1" high, silver metal. When I actually have them in hand, I'll start taking mail orders.....and, of course, I'll bring them to our Boston Harbor bash. :)

Folks,

I am now prepared to ship orders for Ellis Paul lapel pins! :) If you'd like to place an order, please PM me for my snail mail address. No inflation - they are still ONLY $5 each. :)

Thanks MtnGal! Have fun in Boston!

Cathy, your order went out yesterday; Dean, yours will be mailed today.

Keep those orders coming! Oh! I negected to say that when we first got our EP lapel pins two years ago, we decided they should be worn over the heart. :)

Dear Karen:

Thanks so much for sending the pins. They came yesterday and now I can't wait until the next EP show to show it off - oh - the next show is Vermont. :-( Wish it was sooner.

Have a great 4th of July, Karen and everyone.

Hi folks,

Well, it was gonna happen sooner or later. The 5+ year old hard drive on my home computer died Wednesday night so I'm at the local public library. I don't think it will be repaired/replaced before I leave for WoodyFest this coming Tuesday, so if I'm quiet between now and then, you'll know why....and I'll probably be even more quiet after I head west. :)

Dean, glad you like the lapel pins. Annie, I my not get your order in the mail until after I get back from WoodyFest.

You guys are the best. :)

Just got home from vacation and the first thing I tore into from the 2 weeks of mail I had piled up was my lapel pins! They're even better looking in real life! Thanks again Karen and safe travels to WoodyFest. Can't wait to hear all the reviews. :D

Hi everyone,

Is the offer still valid, and do you ship overseas?

Merci!

Herve,

The offer is still valid and of course I would ship overseas to you! :) I'm guessing it might cost $3-$5 to mail, so let me know how many. (you can PM me.)

Thanks! :)
