Scam #9: Damaged- The story behind the classic first Black Flag album is now available in our distro: http://www.portlandbuttonworks.com/store/
When I was in Portland, I made friends With Derek, whose house I was staying at.
This guy is pretty rad for a bunch of reasons, but the one I’m excited about this very second is the zine shop he opened up in North Portland with his pal Alex Wrekk (of Stolen Sharpie Revolution fame), called the Portland Button Works!
Seriously, a store dedicated to zines, where you can also make your own buttons?
I know, it’s a lot of awesome, hard to handle it all at once. Take a breather if you need. Then go check them out here, or else in real life, if you happen to live in that city.
We just got in the 2013 Slingshot organizers and new issue of Maximum Rocknroll! All three are available in the shop and in our distro online: http://www.portlandbuttonworks.com/store/
We have a bunch of new zines in the distro, as well as new patches, buttons, and a lot more! http://www.portlandbuttonworks.com/store/

I just re-stocked my etsy store with all my most recent zines. Check it out if you’re interested. Year One is in there too.
Ramsey is an amazing artist, and an even more amazing person. If you have never read her comics/zines I highly recommend you checking them out. They are smart and funny and informative and easy to get lost in.
