indeed

FTW merch is not Dead.net. Not sold by Dead.net. Different company.

FTW mech outside company

That's the problem... they subbed it out to some third party and they are being unresponsive to legitimate concerns.

Another disgruntled customer...

Here's the one and only negative review that Fare Thee Well Merch posted, now they are censoring them and refusing to post honest but disappointed reviews...

Fare Thee Well Merch Owes a Statement to it's Customers!

With thousands of damaged Fare Thee Well prints from incompetent shipping practices, folks are looking for answers as to what your company is going to do about it. From people that spent $30, to people that spent thousands, Faretheewellmerch is simply not replying to emails and not answering phone calls. It's time that you take responsibility and address this group of people as to what EXACTLY you're going to do to make things right!

Fare Thee Well Merchandise

I have had just an awful experience with the hawkers selling the "official" Fare Thee Well merchandise. So I am on here to warn anyone that may be considering buying some.

Let me start by saying that they allow no negative reviews! If you are not happy with the quality of the items being sent out, they refuse to post your review! I've been round and round with them over this, even suggesting they are doing themselves a disservice by setting them up for more dissatisfied customers.

The size of the hoodie runs small, I went to post that in a review because they keep telling folks in the questions section that "they run true to size"... and they repeatedly refused to post my review. Yes they offered an exchange but folks need to know the facts so they can order accordingly!

I can go on with more issues and details if anyone cares but wanted to get the conversation out there as there has already been talk on other forums about it.

It is a shame such a good band gets hooked up with such questionable merchandising companies!

Peace!

trash

Pick it up if you see it. Place it in the proper receptacle. Don't litter. I must have picked up 75-100 lbs. today at a local park. No kidding.

If you want to sell them here

Post them in the Your Own Storefront thread (http://www.dead.net/forum/your-own-storefront)

Or try eBay.

I think you've missed the boat on today's big auction (http://www.gratefuldeadauction.com/) but I suspect if you got in touch with the auction house they'd have good advice.

Does This Sound Familiar?

"Grateful dead, in folktales of many cultures, the spirit of a deceased person who bestows benefits on the one responsible for his burial. In the prototypical story, the protagonist is a traveler who encounters the corpse of a debtor, to whom the honor of proper burial has been denied. After the traveler satisfies the debt, or, in some versions, pays for the burial, he goes on his way. In another version of the story, burial is prescribed for religious reasons but prohibited by civil authorities. It is this version that forms the theme of the apocryphal Book of Tobit in the Old Testament.

The hero is soon joined by another traveler (sometimes in the form of an animal, or, in the story of Tobit, an angel), who helps him in a dramatic way. In some stories the companion saves the hero’s life; in others he helps him gain a prize. In many versions, the companion offers to aid the hero, but only on condition that they divide the prize. Then, as the hero is about to comply, the companion reveals himself as the grateful spirit of the deceased whom the hero helped to bury."

The mind boggles with the possibilities.
