    How do you tell the world about Tom Bihn?

    In addition to merely carrying the bags and evangelizing fellow travelers, I wondered if others express their fondness for Tom's products in public forums. Prior to this Christmas, I had always maintained an Amazon list for relatives purchasing gifts. However, I never liked the fact that I couldn't include items from other sites. Enter www.Kaboodle.com! Now I can tell the world not only about all the great Tom Bihn items I want, but also about all the Tom Bihn items I can't live without! I see I'm not the only one who expresses my TB love there, so it's nice to see others spreading the word. To see my two lists, click here:

    Things I can't live without

    How do you share the love?

    That's cool: I haven't used Kaboodle yet but I think I'll sign up. I like how clean the design is.

    A lot of people tell us that they found us through various online forums (and sites like Kaboodle). That means a lot to us.

    I am curious if/when we will show up on Wikipedia and what the entry about us will say!

    Edited to add: maybe it would be fun to start a Kaboodle profile that links to all of the stuff recommended in this thread.

    Speaking of Amazon, has Tom Bihn ever considered selling bags through Amazon, whose HQ is also in Seattle?

    Democracy Now sells the medium cafe bag.

    I found Tom Bihn bags through forum postings when I was searching for a
    guide bag.

    I belong to some online fiber arts communities and whenever I see a post where someone is looking for a knitting/crafts bag, I jump right in there with my praises of Tom Bihn!

    We did for a little while! It turned out not to be right for us at the time we tried it.

    Our Seattle headquarters are within walking distance of Amazon's offices.
