I bought this sweet t-shirt from Threadless.com the other day.
I'm such a nerd.
Threadless has some sweet t-shirt designs, and their business model is brilliant. They have an ongoing design competition that anyone can enter, and anyone can vote in. The winning designers get some dough and free shirts, and Threadless gets designs that they know will sell.
I love the open, collaborative method - I just wish their shirts were a little cheaper. Anybody else think that this could be done in a non-profit way? Charge just enough to recoup expenses, and let community volunteers set up and run the site.
Anyone else think it's got potential?
