Tubac Presidio Park On-line Gift Shop was awarded a Pro-Seller badge yesterday, July 13, 2011 from Zazzle, Inc. It is estimated that over 800,000 sellers are responsible for the 40+ billion products in the Zazzle marketplace and that less than 10% of sellers achieve Pro-Seller status. It is six months since we launched and we have had over 1500 visitors and posted nearly as many gift items for sale. The Tubac Presidio Park On-line Gift Shop is well on track to becoming a viable enterprise.
On offer at the shop are t-shirts and other apparel, coffee and travel mugs, greeting cards, postcards and postage, tote and grocery bags, mini speakers for laptops and cell phones, iPhone cases, posters and prints, as well as magnets, key chains and other assorted gift items. Historical photographs, maps, and documents provide the basis for many of the unique images found on our products.
We are so very fortunate to have four outstanding contributing artists associated with the shop: Roberta Rogers, watercolorist; Richard Lasley, painter and illustrator; Alice Keene, photographer; and William Ahrendt, painter. Thanks to their generosity we are able to offer beautiful prints of their work as well as other items featuring their work. Their contributions add another dimension of color, design, and imagination to our product lines, and we are deeply grateful.
The Tubac Presidio Park On-line Gift Shop now has its own Facebook page. Here you will find news about the Park, information about new items, and the latest discounts and promotions. Join us!
Preserving the Tubac Presidio State Historic Park is our mission and finding ways to raise money is critical to our success as we strive to keep this cultural treasure open for everyone to explore and enjoy. All proceeds from your purchases at the on-line gift shop go directly to funding this effort and will be greatly appreciated. Another way to help our cause is to contribute a photo, recipe, or artwork for use in the on-line gift shop. Local participation plays a huge part in our plan for success!
Local Photographs Wanted
We would like to see your local photograph, and perhaps use it on a Tubac Presidio Park postcard, mug, or t-shirt. Email your photo to email@example.com with your name and information on the photo’s subject matter. If we are able to use your photo, we will email you a link to our new product featuring your photo and a ‘by-line’ crediting you as the photographer will be placed in the item description box (along with any other pertinent info you provide).
Local Family Recipes Wanted
We would like to feature foodie postcards for the upcoming holidays and we are in need of local or family recipes. If you can help, please email your recipe, name, and pertinent info to firstname.lastname@example.org (a scan of a recipe would be an easy and quick way to upload it for emailing). Send a photo of your dish also, if you happen to have one. You will be credited, and we will send you a link to our new product featuring your recipe. Our holidays will be merrier thanks to you.
