Cauli Giveaways Are a Sure Patron Pleaser
Hey, Boss Lady! I notice that our Library has some giveaway goodies for our wonderful patrons, some of which has our institutional name, address, etc., and/or logo. This is all fine and good, but what do our patrons REALLY want, when it comes to free stuff? I think the answer is obvious.

(Thanks to the folks at CustomInk.com for this free design feature.)
We already make bookmarks and puzzle worksheets bearing my likeness. We could have pens, pencils, post-it notes, and such like embossed with my photo, name, and blog URL, but why stop there? Why not t-shirts, sweatshirts, bags, hats--the whole shebang? EVERYTHING we distribute to patrons could have Cauli on it! How cool would that be? More cool than most people could handle without having to sit down first.
I'm told that these things cost some serious cash, but wouldn't it be worth it to please all of my throngs of fans out there? We could, of course, sell Cauli stuff as a fundraiser, but let's not put people off too much. The economy, you understand.
I have a t-shirt design already prepared, but I'm told it's top-secret because of the 2011 Indiana Library Federation (ILF) Conference coming in November at which The Lady With the Red Hair and Scowl-Face will be wearing them for the first time. Well, I don't want to spoil any surprises.
If you'd like to see some Cauli giveaway items, please leave your comments. Boss Lady will need some persuading.
