My day job got eliminated. The vet bills from recent livestock losses have put our family farm behind on the mortgage. We're facing foreclosure and eviction. I'm offering this #handmade #maille #rainbow #pride shirt for $600 including USA shipping, originally priced at $900 plus shipping. If the shirt is out of your reach, please boost.
