Green Grin! I was browsing the Learning Library and found an old article containing a link to an NGA Garden Shop: https://garden.org/learn/artic... When one clicks on the link, the following message appears: "Page Not Found. The page you are trying to locate could not be found. Please try again later. We apologize for the inconvenience."

Is there a possibility for a future NGA Garden Shop? I'm all ears! Green Grin!

Thanks for this report. I removed the links.

NGA has over the years several times offered items for sale. It could happen again but I kinda doubt it. Smiling

LOL, I know it would be a tremendous amount of work trying to run an on-line garden shop!

I love mine, too. Maybe there could be some special one time offerings of the mugs and T shirts, @Trish?

I have a couple of the All Things Plants coffee mugs; on one I broke the handle off so I used that one as a little cache pot for a house plant. Green Grin! I think I had 4 ATP tee shirts and wore them all out ... would love a few NGA shirts with the garden.org logo! Lovey dubby

It's (literally) on my list of things to do this winter.
Make note, though...once upon a time we personally sourced, purchased, and shipped shirts and mugs, but we will not be doing that now. We will using a place (cafepress, or similar) to use.

The good news is that 1) the store will actually get done 2) more NGA merchandise will be available.
The bad news is that those super cute terracotta mugs aren't available through those sorts of stores.
Thumbs down

I'm glad to hear that you will do that! Having more merchandise will be wonderful. I don't know how you did it all before. This makes a lot more sense. Thank you!

Mdse. I'd like to have with the NGA logo & garden.org web address:

T-shirts
Baseball Cap
Tote Bag
Callendars
Bumper Stickers
Magnets

CafePress carries a few mugs but not the terra cotta type that was offered in the past with the All Things Plants Logo. I think the NGA logo would still look great on the white mugs though! Smiling

I love the size and shape of the Latte Mug that cafe press offers and if possible I would definitely order a couple of those with the NGA logo: http://www.cafepress.com/+mugs I

The terra cotta mugs were cute (just not large enough for my size cup of coffee or tea Green Grin! ) and I actually think the logo would show up much nicer on the white mugs!

That's great news, Trish (even without the terra cotta mugs) ! I've purchased things through CafePress before and was very happy with what I received. Thumbs up

Agree. Cafepress has grown into a nice business. No complaints from me.
