WeeM Logo Products - WeeM Shirts and More

Café Press is again the subcontractor for HalloweeM gear, including t-shirts, throw pillows, bumper stickers, mouse pads, potion cannisters, and the highly controversial* WeeM thong! Ordering directly through the store, you get a much wider variety of shirts and other fine goods to choose from, and your purchases are shipped directly to you. If you want your stuff delivered to your home in time to wear it at 'WeeM, we recommend you order by October 13th.

You can buy merchandise with this year’s logo at the Café Press. Orders and payment for t-shirts and other WeeM logo items will be taken through Café Press. You can also get items with themes from prior years in their WeeM store (all designed by local member, Robin Crawford).

* Does not protect you against the Wicked Witch of the West or Flying Monkeys. Or much else.

On-site Shopping & Services


Attention Vendors!
Our Vendor Coördinator is accepting applications for space at WeeM. Refer to our Vendor Flyer for all the details. PayPal is required to submit your payment. The deadline is October 12th.

Our vendor area will be open again this year, with a fine selection of jewelry, books, and other fun things. Vendors can now sign-up. See our Vendor Flyer for complete information. Submit your completed Vendor Contract Form to our Vendor Coördinator../images/email-regular.s.gif by October 12th. Join our WeeM-Notify mailing list to get additional information about WeeM periodically.


Exhausted? Stressed? Worn out from your travels? There will be two massage therapists to do chair massages in the Vendor area during WeeM. They will be cash only, $15 for a 15 minute chair massage.

Book Sale

Per tradition, we will feature a book and media sale at HalloweeM. Proceeds from this sale go to philanthropic concerns, with a portion benefitting Curt’s Café and a portion allocated to an appropriate charity such as Bernie's Book Bank. You can donate your new and used books or media directly at WeeM; bring your donation to the Book Sale area (inside Ravinia, toward the back) at any time on Thursday or Friday. We will gladly accept books of any genre (children's, art, science, math, history, mystery, puzzles and games, cookbooks, romance, fiction, SF and fantasy, non-fiction, religion, occult, biographies, self-help, reference, materials of an adult nature, etc.), along with cassettes (audio and/or video), CDs, DVDs, video games, and books on tape/CD. Most items will be sold for a few dollars or less, so this is a great opportunity to expand your collection!

Please note that we will not accept magazines, vinyl (records), outdated textbooks, or "white elephant" items; any donated items fitting these descriptions will be discarded. Any materials that are not purchased by the end of the gathering will be donated to local libraries, schools, and/or charities as the organizers see fit.

Off-site Shopping

There are several malls within a short drive of the Westin. Unfortunately, there's no notable shopping centers within walking distance. If there is significant interest, we may try to arrange a shopping excursion during the weekend. Check back later in the year for more information or join our WeeM-Notify mailing list to get notified of any updates in this area.
