We’re hoping you might be able to help. To keep the online store open, it costs us far more than the small amounts we get from selling zines. We want to keep growing the zine distro and expanding the possbilities for the zinemakers we stock. To do this, we currently rely on people ordering things online, at zine fairs, and also the money we get from sales of Susy Pow’s zines - Tea & Biscuits, Don’t Panic, Everything Was Beautiful & Nothing Hurt, Comparisons Between Humans & Robots, Birds, Notes & Errata. I’ve been putting in a lot of my own money but there’s heaps of things I’d like to do that I just can’t do if I keep putting in so much of my own money. Sorry to make it sound like a sob story. There’s no way I want Bird in the Hand to stop expanding.
There’s more than a couple different ways you can help:
a) Buy something from zines.bigcartel.com
b) Donate: a couple of coins
c) Buy Susy Pow’s zines - they’re pretty nice anyway so you won’t lose out - (link)
d) Buy some things from us at the Wollongong Zine Fair this weekend!
e) Support us and our distro.
