Welcome to Nowhere!

Big news…the Nowhere Bookshop website is open to the public!

And that means that you can now buy t-shirts, mugs, totes and signed or personalized books.  Will I write “knock knock motherfucker!” or “Thank you for hiding that body for me, friend” or other requested ridiculousness?  Of course I will.  

Over the last several days a number of you volunteered to test the website (thank you!) so I think all the bugs are worked out.  I sent emails to each of the people to invite them to try it and I closed the email telling them that the sizes were accurate and that I found that a size large fit me really well but that I’d probably do the 2X because I really love loose shirts.  Except that I accidentally sent it out with a typo to the first focus group, which means I told a dozen people in a professional email how much “I really love loose shits”.

Awesome.

This video seems only slightly more professional:

 

All the proceeds go to getting a new floor and accessible bathrooms and a wheelchair ramp and a bar and a million other things we need.

Thank you for helping make this dream come true for all of us.

Now click here and get your stuff before we sell out.  Free bookplates will be added to packages until we run out.  Go!

    Yay! I’m so happy you have black and also v necks, and lots of sizes. I’m a rather tall woman who finds women’s sizes aren’t always long enough, can you put a size chart on your website for clothing that has chest width, arm length and torso length for the clothing? Ooh, if you do sweatpants or joggers could you do inseam length? I’d love a pair of sweatpants or joggers with a full zip hoodie with Rory on it!

  89. I ordered my tee and tote! I too love loose shits, so much nicer than the solid ones that hang out for days on end and make you miserable. TMI, I know.

    When you grow up to be a full blown bookstore and ship books please, please, please make a tick box that says something like “Must be shipped by USPS.” Jails will not take UPS packages so I was forced to buy and ship books from B&N when a relative was doing time (Amazon and Target could not guarantee they wouldn’t “upgrade” my shipping). Not that I expect more relatives doing time, but I’m a realist and I’m sure others have encountered this.

    I know you are currently overwhelmed with orders (congrats!) but do you think you’ll ever offer hoodies? For those of us who’s social anxiety wants to wear a blanket in public? I live in tanks with a hoodie over the top (even to the beach, which my family thinks is weird) at home, but especially in public. Even though I think it’s cool, I wouldn’t wear a tee but would rock a hoodie. Maybe something for the future? I would love to buy one if so. 🙂
