Quick sales at Itself and Fair and Bare!

While we're still riding high on the Threadless sale this week, there are a couple others you might want to look into as well. It's going to mostly depend on what you want out of your money. If you want to jolt some life into what seems to be a hurtin' company, we recommend hitting up Itself, where you can get 25% off your orders until April 2nd (code TLSFSPRING25). We're a little worried about Itself, as it has had some incredibly slow growth... their current new print was about 4 months in the making. With all the promise the site originally showed (and the wealth of quality design and designers languishing in their submissions), we can only hope they start bringing in sales enough to get back on track. A sale is a great time to do that, especially considering their pretty high-profile constituency... or just stock up on their custom blanks.

Of course, if you want to help a blooming company proliferate, you should head over to Fair & Bare, a site out of the UK who are advocates for "designer ethical threads" and who are having a 28% off sale until Sunday only (in honor of the owner's 28th birthday on March 28th). The code, unsurprisingly, is "HAPPYBDAY" and applies to everything in the store (their charity tee will only discount £2, but I cannot for the life of me tell which one is specifically charity). We recommend Chris Risse's Why Witches Don't Go On Vacations, a solid humor tee steeped in old folklore, and one that shows the dangers of leaving your candy home abandoned when fat German kids are on the loose (and one that features our favorite black-on-red color combo). If that's not your speed, though, the sites other selections are few but diverse and mostly quality... with the sale going on, there's no better time to get acquainted with what could be a name to watch.

Hey - Ian from F&B here. Thanks so much for the shout. Really appreciated. The charity shirt we have is the snowdodgers yeti design, of which any profits made will be going to two charities - both of which are doing some incredible work with the poorest and most marginalised in Moldova (One of europes poorest countries).
