You may or may not know, but this year we produced a whole bunch of awesome stuff for TCAF 2013! Purchase of these items supports TCAF and all the good work we do (especially the posters), so we hope you’ll consider buying something pretty and/or useful for your life AND supporting TCAF at the same time.
The full range of items is now available, and we’ll even ship some of the items to you out there in the world! Here’s a quick run-down:

This sturdy tote is emblazoned with The Beguiling’s 25th Anniversary logo in front, and TCAF logo on the back. It measures 12″ tall x 14″x wide x 6″ deep, is water resistant, features two interior pockets, and is basically the best tote you will ever own.
