Data Entry in Progress
- HappyLife Productions: gorgeous fantasy and some Grateful Dead
- Signatures Network -- got a Beatles shirt and a couple of Yes shirts from them, took pictures, haven't had time to process. In general, anything I want to carry from SN will have to be ordered and photographed, as the images available from them do not meet vbz's standards.
Contact in Progress
- 2005-06-07: SkulBonz: large initial order, but the designs look nice if you're into evil skulls. If there's interest, I may order a bunch; which designs look good?
- Global Merchandise: no catalog per se; I haven't yet found anything they have that I really really want to carry, but they do have a lot of stuff...
