The State of Illinois is promoting tourism here by, among other things, marketing Illinois “stuff” featuring Illinois landmarks and icons. Once again, our friends at Cafepress are doing the actual selling. One set of promotional items features the Illinois State Fair Butter Cow.
You can get Butter Cow mugs, shirts, posters, tote bags, bibs and more.
Other Illinois merchandise lines include pictures of the Collinsville Catsup Bottle, the Morton Pumpkin Fest, Cave-in-Rock and a number of others.
I’m not sure this stuff is going to be wildly popular but I might take a Butter Cow t-shirt.
