Eventually, the store will carry all the Wine Curmudgeon merchandise you could ever want, including hats, t-shirts, and the sort of tchotchkes that make you go, “Wow, I need to buy that.”
Now, though, you can purchase the cheap wine book (or follow links to buy the various e-book versions) and VingardeValise wine suitcases and accessories.
When I started the blog 10 years ago, I had a vague idea that I needed to do e-commerce to make any money from the site. I was hesitant to do it, though, even though my grandfather and father were top-notch retailers. I’m a writer, and worrying about fulfillment isn’t my idea of a good time.
Still, one must be flexible. And the technology has improved so much that I won’t have to worry about fulfillment nearly as much as I thought I would.
If you have questions about the shop or suggestions for merchandise, send me an email.
