Shirt.Woot Derby #71: Thrift

This week’s derby at Shirt.Woot is… well, kind of horrible. But if you think you can design a wearable Thrift-themed shirt, have at it. Here’s what Woot has to say:

People are reacting to the current economic crisis in one of three ways. Some are cutting back their discretionary spending and socking a little more away in case of disaster. Some are breathing a sigh of relief that the recession hasn’t hit them, and going on about their free-spending ways as usual. And some are exploring exciting new career fields like copper-pipe salvage, apple sales, and begging. This week, as America is encouraged to spend for the sake of God and country, we’re looking for your screenprinted take on the new cheapness, the skinflint spirit that has seized our nation like an ill-fitting thrift-store trouser. We figure, if you’re a Woot shopper, this is a subject you know a thing or two about.

Text is permitted. Use it freely, but wisely.

The derby opens to submissions at noon on Friday, with submissions continuing until Wednesday at noon. Voting is on-going from Friday at noon until Thursday at noon. Three winners will be printed the following weekend (as chosen by site members), with the printed designers earning $1000 for the first night of sales and a potential $2 per shirt sold on any sales after that date.
