FlyCoJoe's "Shirt Off My Back" Fundraiser!

 

Join us Saturday October 24 for a very low-key COVID-aware event.


This one is simple: Donate to our fundraiser for The Hero Initiative and the Book Industry Charitable Foundation (BINC) and, YES!... you could go home with a well-worn t-shirt from the personal archives of FlyCoJoe and/or a copy of the new edition of STAN'S SOAPBOX: The Collection featuring the wit and wisdom of the late great Stan Lee, signed by FlyCoJoe (a contributor to the book).

All proceeds from the donations will go to benefit The Hero Initiative helping comics creators in need and the Book Industry Charitable Foundation benefiting our nation’s independent booksellers and comic retailers in their time of need.

The thing is, at Flying Colors we've been so blessed to get this far!
2020 has been a nightmare year for most of us...but between the help received from government programs, BINC and especially YOU, our FlyCo Faithful, we WILL make it through to the other side of COVID. Brighter days are ahead!

To be honest, the shirts you'll get from FlyCoJoe's collection for donating are indeed well worn... and some have seen moments of comics history. We will be supplementing FlyCoJoe's collection with more tshirts from comics and movies from the last 30+ years.

The important thing for us is to help give back to the charities giving a lot to the comics industry.

We hope you'll join us.

Flying Colors is temporarily CLOSED

Due to testing positive for COVID, I've had to close Flying Colors for the time being.

For the next week or so (who knows?), Flying Colors will not be open for business.
In order to protect our Flying Colors staff and our legions of FlyCo Faithful, we need to step back and CLOSE the shop.  

We will not be able to fill orders of any kind right now, including in-store, curbside, Shopify or mail order.

Our awesome staff will all be getting tested... and when those tests come back negative--- meaning our FlyCo Retailing Brigade is healthy-- we'll re-open the shop, likely with more limited hours when we restart.

We hope you'll all be patient as we deal with this crisis. 

It disappoints me to not be open for our loyal fans. But we will be back, hopefully soon...and hopefully stronger than ever.

Thanks for your understanding. Please, people, be careful out there and wear your masks!

-- Joe "FlyCoJoe" Field
