Here's a great new on-line tool to help you get product without buying
inventory.  It's all print on demand product which will ship in a couple of
days after someone orders.  The quality is great and they are very
reliable.  I've used them for a few months now. You can set up a store for
free and put a link on your website all at no cost.   You can set your own
retail prices for products and the company mails you the profit (difference
between their cost and your set price).   You can select the products and
put any image (photo of you and your puppets) or different puppets on
different products.
