Online news site Slate has introduced a new e-commerce store. The site is powered by mental_floss.
The store sells everything from Slate branded t-shirts and coffee mugs to iPad covers and books by Slate contributors and books that Slate editors love. The Editor’s Picks include the books The Victory Lab: The Secret Science of Winning Campaigns by Sasha Issenberg; The Magnificent Chicken: Portraits of the Fairest Fowl by Ira Glass and Hitch 22: A Memoir, Christopher Hitchens‘ memoir.
There is even a section of the store for wordsmiths which includes Scrabble letter fridge magnets and Great Gatsby themed iPad covers. The site will add new products every month. The store is currently running a 20 percent off sale.
