Chip Mom’s Kitchen #49: Cookin’ up MERCH!

Posted by

In the early years of ChipWIN, I knew very little about chiptune, but I knew I loved the community, the shows, and my soon-to-be-hubby, so I wanted to help! I’ve sold a few Girl Scout cookies in my day and I’ll talk to anything that sits still long enough; not to mention that I have an unhealthy adoration for spreadsheets and data, so I decided to dive in and become Maven of the Merch Booth!

And that’s what we’re talking about today, chip children; Brandon and I want to pass on our knowledge about…

MERCH!
