Dear Loyal Maker Shed Customer,

During the last Maker Faire, we unveiled a truly unique product in the
Maker Shed store — an actual Chumby in kit form. The open–source Chumby
is Linux–based with plenty of widgets already coded. Produced and
packaged expressly for Maker Shed by Chumby, the kit contained
everything you need to build your own Chumby or to hack it into into a
form factor of your own choosing, including an accelerometer, 3.5"
touchscreen LCD, USB WiFi dongle, 3 USB 2.0 ports, and a powerful
motherboard. The price was just $99. We sold out within 3 hours.

Through a special arrangement with our good friends at Chumby, we have
managed to acquire another small quantity of these rare Chumby Kits.
These kits are presently en route from the factory and we expect them to
sell out in record time. And so I thought "why not make them available
exclusively to our very best and most loyal Maker Shed customers first,
before offering them for sale to the public?" Think of it as our way of
thanking you for your patronage.

This is an exclusive invitation to pre-order your own kit-form Chumby
for just $99. To review product details and pre-order, please visit this
unpublished Maker Shed link.

Again, this is a special offer that we are making first to our very best
customers. There is a limit of 3 kits per customer, and when they're
gone, they're gone. I'll try to get more, but I cannot guarantee that
we'll see these again.

All The Best,


Dan Woods
General Manager, Maker Shed
