Well, summer’s now officially over! We hope everyone had great vacations and read a lot of books.
The PBS Store items are going like hotcakes. We have had to re-order BookMates and they have arrived! We now offer larger BookMates for trade-size paperbacks or hardbacks, and also “extenders” to make your BookMate I work with larger books. Get your order in soon, because the BookMate”sale” prices are good only through September 15th. If you want a special-size T shirt, don’t forget to send your request to firstname.lastname@example.org, with sizes and quantities. When we have enough special-size items to make up a “lot”, we will notify you by email so that you can place your order. And if you want a color/style/BookMate product that we don’t carry in stock, we’ll be glad to special order it for you! (This is less expensive for you, because our shipping rates are lower than those charged on the BookMate site, and you can receive other items from PBS with your BookMate for no additional shipping!) Just send your special request to email@example.com, and we’ll email you when your product arrives. You can then order it through the kiosk, and we’ll ship it to you!
Is it too soon to think about Christmas? We’re considering offering items in the PBS Kiosk that are suitable for gift-giving. One of us will be starting a forum topic on this in the coming days. We hope you will share your thoughts with us. PBS and the store are here for YOU. We need your input!
