4-12-15 Update:

New store hours are now in effect:

Mon-Thursday Closed
Friday 4PM-7PM (except for the third Friday of every month the store will be closed)
Saturday 2:30PM-7PM
Sunday 1PM-7PM

A new supplier of Fair Trade Crafts items has been added.  In the next week or two there will be various items available from the UFW Store (United Farm Workers).  Many items available on their web site will be available as well as some items that are not on their web site.  If I don't have it in the store, I can special order it with no shipping charge.  Prices will be matched with the sale prices on the UFW Store web site.

4-4-15 Update:

In addition to the 14 bumper stickers displayed below, there is now a modest display of some 39 different fair trade crafts items at the brick and mortar location. You can preview these items anytime between 11AM-6:30PM Tuesday-Sunday and until 8PM on Friday-Sunday. Purchasing of these items is only possible 4-7PM Fridays, 2:30PM-7PM on Saturdays and 1PM-7PM Sundays.

My wholesale account for Ten Thousand Villages was approved this week. So effective immediately any customer who visits the brick and mortar store location can place a special order for any item (except oversize items) available on the Ten Thousand Villages web site.  The item will be available for in store pick up within 2 weeks. Payment is due when you pick the item up. This offer is good subject to my cash flow limitations as currently I am only able to process $1500 (retail price) per month in such orders.  At the point where cash flow becomes an issue, I will have to ask customers to prepay for their special orders. I don't anticipate that being an issue for the forseeable future however.  You can also visit the Global Crafts b2b site and then ask me to place a special order for any item that you see there.  In the near future I may also have my wholesale account reestablished with the UFW Store, so that you can special order United Farm Workers union made items such as T-shirts and so on. All items have no shipping charges added, so you save on shipping when you pick up the items at the brick and mortar store location. Shipping to other locations is not available. If you want an item shipped to another location, please place your order directly with the vendor at their respective web site.

A special note about promotions of on social media: It was reported today on that social media exposure is key to a business person's success. People want to know everything they can about the person they do business with. Well, I'm sorry, but that idea directly conflicts with my need for privacy. I will not be posting regular updates to social media that include such trivial items as what I had for dinner or breakfast or how many times I watched certain videos on the Internet and how I abused myself while watching said videos, etc. This entire business venture is founded on the principle of having the least amount of exposure to NSA spying as possible both for myself and my customers. Please bring cash when you shop at my store as I will not be accepting plastic. There will soon be a paper and ink catalog of thousands of fair trade crafts items available for special order that you can browse while you are at the brick and mortar location. This will cut down on the NSA's ability to figure out which customers bought which items. Please play along with this philosophy if we are to get along in business together. Thank you.

3-25-15 Update:
New! now has the ultimate in online security against NSA snooping: a brick and mortar location with a minimal security camera not likely connected to the Internet, which is obscured by a big pinata anyway. The location is:

Indoor Marketplace
3305 Main Street #4
Springfield, OR 97478

Open hours:
Mon-Wed Closed
Thursdays 4PM-7PM
Fridays 4PM-7PM
Saturdays 2:30PM-7PM
Sundays 4PM-7PM

As of this moment, the only products available from the portion of the Indoor Marketplace are the 14 bumper stickers below.  However, as of April 1st, 2015 there will be a selection of 39 Fair Trade crafts items. To preview these items, visit the Global Crafts wholesale site, located here. The first 45 items (except the ornaments and the group of wooden animals) on the Best Sellers page are the ones that I ordered to be part of the brick and mortar store experience.   To check the retail prices, you can either create a log in for the b2b site or you can try to find a similar item on the retail web site called Gifts With Humanity.  All of the items available on the b2b web site are able to be special ordered.  Note that if the b2b site says that they will ship a range of colors for that item, then I can not guarantee the same color matching as may be provided on the Gifts With Humanity web site.  Thank you.

Coming soon: a complete web site where all of my prices and items available for special order are shown, except the items from Ten Thousand Villages. All items except the bumper stickers will only be available for in store pick up, with no shipping charges on any sized order.  To have items shipped to a location other than the store, please visit the Gifts With Humanity or Ten Thousand Villages web sites and place an order directly with them. Bumper stickers ship worldwide with free shipping on any sized order. Items from Ten Thousand Villages will also be available for in store pick up at the regular and non-flash-sale prices from the Ten Thousand Villages web site, with no shipping charges on any sized order. Special arrangements may be needed if ordering an over sized item from Ten Thousand Villages.  To see the Ten Thousand Villages items that are available, please visit the Ten Thousand Villages web site, located here.

2-11-15 Update:

The bumper stickers have finally been printed.  See below for the available selections.

Here is an announcement for you all who have been loyal visitors to As of today, January 5, 2015, all the movie reviews and home page versions of have been archived at the bottom of this page. The New Year of 2015 marks the start of a new venture, called At you will find out how to order unique bumper stickers that have been authored by John Thielking, who has made his best efforts to ensure that the stickers carry unique slogans that have not simply been ripped off from some other person or organization. For instance, you won't find here the hashtags #BlackLivesMatter or #ICan'tBreathe available in vinyl. However, you will find "Black Lives Matter Too" (a unique creation designed to counter hecklers commenting "All Lives Matter") and you will find the unique word order of "The First Casualty Of War Is The Truth" which was created independently of the original phrase first muttered in the early 20th century of "The Truth Is The First Casualty Of War".

The security of the potential customers of was also considered when setting up the site. It was found that there is no point in making all of the pages on the site be displayed using https protocol as according to the latest Snowden documents' accounts published recently in Der Speigel the NSA cracks 10 million or more https connections per day (as of 2012). So to keep the NSA's prying eyes out of the customers' affairs, the following strategy was chosen:

There is no printable order form on the site. You will have to write down your choices of bumper stickers by indicating the sticker version #'s and quantities on a sheet of paper and send that along with your name and mailing address and cash, check or money order to
PO Box 10631
Eugene, OR 97440

You can now address the envelopes to and make the checks payable to

For mail sent within the USA only: For added security (to obscure NSA metadata) do not include a return address on your envelope (the Post Office records all addresses on every envelope that gets sent) and either send cash or neglect to fill in true information in the "from" field of any money order that you send.  Note that my bank has told me that they will not accept money orders that don't have the "from" fields filled out, so SOMETHING must appear in the "from" field.  They didn't tell me that they would be checking to see if there is true information in the "from" field though, so make something up if you want. When the stickers are mailed to you, the return address for will also not appear on the envelope. So look for an envelope with no return address and that will be the one with your shipment in it. For added security against the banking system tracking your order before it arrives at your doorstep, the money orders and checks that are sent to will not be cashed until one week after the orders are shipped. This statement applies to the first 50 orders per month of $50 or less. I will do my best to make that work for more than 50 orders per month, but only the first 50 orders are guaranteed to be processed this way since there may be cash flow issues with processing more than 50 orders that way in one month.

For international orders:  Please include an extra $5 for international shipping, for any size order. Please include your real return address on your envelope as Customs may not allow the mail to go through otherwise. All money orders and checks sent internationally will be cashed before the orders are shipped.  Customs requires that the real return address for be included on any international shipments.  Most international shipments are not opened/inspected by Customs, so your security is almost as good as a domestic shipment within the USA.  Metadata, however, will be available for the NSA to collect. 

Good luck and happy shopping!

PS When you finally receive your stickers and are ready to apply them to your car, consider foiling license plate reader cameras and police cruiser dashboard cameras by placing the stickers on some place other than the rear bumper portion of your car.  The side doors or the tops of the hoods or roof would make good alternative spots that won't be promptly picked up by automated surveillance cameras that are out and about.

Here are some pictures of the available bumper stickers.  Prices are: $4 each for one or two stickers and $2 each for five or more stickers. If you are ordering three or four stickers, just send $10, and it's all good. Shipping is free for any sized order mailed within the USA. International orders, please add $5 for international shipping. Thank you.
