The “Love Bug Trumps Hate” Shop

Back in December 2019, I read an article in the Philadelphia paper about a suicide prevention Herbie the Love Bug replica. Seeing The Love Bug in a California drive-in in our Dodge camper-van is one of my earliest memories, so I followed Gabe on Instagram. And then I decided to make him an embroidered Herbie keychain, and then since I had gone to the trouble of digitizing the design I made a few more, and a few more, and then some different ones, and, well, here we are. Gabe has his own Etsy shop but this little corner of my shop saves me mailing them across the Delaware and saves him having to come up with packing supplies. The full purchase price goes to Gabe - none of this “proceeds” or “profits” or “net” nonsense. – Karen
