Support Star Wars and Geek Pride for Katie

Katie is a first grade girl who has been teased for bringing her Star Wars water bottle into school because the boys in her class say Star Wars is only for boys. Since her mother posted the story on the web, people of all ages have read and commented to show support for the girl to like whatever she darn well pleases.

Let’s really give her something to smile about. Today, wear a Star Wars tee shirt or any other piece of paraphernalia to show that you support Katie, Star Wars, anti-bullying, or at the very least, cool water bottles. If you don’t have any, be creative.

Invite everyone you know. Let’s show Katie and those boys at school how much support she has.

For more on Katie’s story visit her facebook page.

Vintage 9 Pack on TPR?

If you have passed up to this point on the Target Exclusive Vintage 9pk, you might want to cruise your aisles again. A local MN collector friend, “JediMoses”, has found this on Temporary Price Reduction to a very attractive $35.99. This is a localized markdown and not all Target are observing this price but if your store had an ample supply of these you might want to visit (or at least call) to check. DPCI: 087-06-1620
