Is this your dream shopping trip? It could be, if all you want is a brand new Salut! Sunderland mug. The good news is that overseas readers can now buy these first items to appear at the Salut! Sunderland Shop.
As announced the other day, the site is making its first modest steps into the world of merchandise.
It is a simple matter of Salut! Sunderland needing to make ends meet and justify the time, effort and expense of running what When Saturday Comes, sponsors of our annual Who Are You? awards, might call a half-decent football site.
Murdoch is not in charge around here so no one pays to visit Salut! Sunderland – though if I could secretly levy a £1 tax on each visiting, gloating Newcastle United fan, I’d have made thousands yesterday and today.
You see ads on the page, and they help. And now, I hope the sales of little items associated with our support for SAFC will help further – and finance a small beer money support system for the excellent Pete Sixsmith in recognition of his dedication and writing talent.
Other products will be added as we go along. This is a small first step but your support would be appreciated.
The first two products are tea/coffee mugs bearing the slogans “Salut! Sunderland – A site better” or “Salut! Sunderland – a million fans can’t be wrong”, the latter a reference to our recent readership milestone. You can buy one mug or several, with discounts if you order more than one. I will get purchased mugs posted off to you as soon as I can, placing my own roder with the supplier for batches of 10, which qualifies for a discount that enables me to keep prices down.

And if you are in the UK, you qualify for free postage – postal charges levied by the supplier being the only reason overseas orders are more expensive – and should CLICK ON THIS LINK.
