What do you do when your CD shipment doesn't come in?

You improvise.  Yes, you do.  

CD sales at shows is one of the ways musicians make a living.  In the digital age, merchandise revenue has definitely decreased, but we still like to offer music to those interested in buying.  

A couple days ago, we realized our CD shipment wasn't going to arrive on time.  

I'm quite positive it wasn't our fault.  I mean, how could it be?


  We found ourselves wondering what to do on this next run of shows.  

*Insert brainstorming session*

*And a trip to the Walmart*

CD's and cardboard cases, yarn, sharpie, brown paper.  Check.

Crinkle up brown paper bag to be cut up into tags.

Tie tag onto CD case with yarn.
Lots of times. 
(It says "Trent Monk Live")

Ta-da!  I like it.  Not bad for a last minute decision. 

And we're going to display them in this suitcase.  It belonged to Trent's great-grandmother, Grandma Baird.  I adore it.

I like this, too.  And we have a cool table cloth that matches perfectly.  

I think they look like old-school, vintage-y gifts.  It's like a gift from us to you.

A gift that you have to pay for.

Happy Brainstorming!
