Need To Score Some Hope Pronto

I feel incredibly stupid for asking this, but where can I find Obama bumper stickers, buttons, and other materials in Seattle?

I ordered a couple of buttons from, but they're taking forever to arrive and I want to send some to a friend in Sweden. I would, obviously, be happy to make a small donation to the campaign as well.

I'm sure there's a FAT CHANCE of this, but sources in or around Greenlake / Wallingford / UW would be appreciated.

The Urban Outfitters in Costa Mesa, California sells "Barack to the Future" coffee mugs and other Obamaphernalia. There's got to be one up your way.

The Obama HQ in Seattle is at 1310 Mercer St. Go on down there and ask politely, and I bet they'd hook you up.

Oh, hey, even better. Here's a list of WA State Obama offices.

If you head to either the Evergreen or Puyallup fairs, the Obama camp will probably have a table set up, where you can buy some swag.

Assuming another web site is fine, have you tried Obama's official site yet? All the proceeds from sales there count as contributions, and they'll likely have more stuff than you'd find anywhere else in person.

If you volunteer at an event there's often buttons there, and it's fun! Plug your zip code in here and search for events, it looks like there's lots of voter registration and canvassing next weekend.

Here is the link to the official Obama campaign store. If you buy items from this site, you can be confident that the profit is going to the campaign (and not to some button making company trying to profit from his success.)

If you look around the store, you will see that there are items specific to each state. I know that there is a Washington State for Obama Label pin.

I was told to buy directly from the campaign website for buttons or yard signs. I wish I would have known that before donating on another part of the site....

The state headquarters here in Virginia (battleground state) hasn't had any stickers/buttons/yard signs for weeks. When they got their last shipment, it was gone within the day. According to the campaign, demand is very high; because all materials are produced by a limited number of union manufacturers, the supply can't keep up with demand. If the office can't hook you up, order from the website.

Try the Washington State Dems on 2nd Ave, 206-583-0664, I'm pretty sure they can give you stuff.

My lovely wife just bought a great "Ballard for Obama" tshirt at Epilogue Books. Obama in a Viking helmet - fantastic!
