I've passed this volunteer offer and link around on a couple of mailing lists, but it seems appropriate to write it down formally so it doesn't get lost among everyone else's current workload.
I'm volunteering to help revise & revitalize the current KDE merchandise store we have at CafePress. What we have now is a little sparse and spartan. (It's also a little hard to find the link, but that's an entirely different issue.)
I've got some experience setting up and configuring CafePress stores, so I put together a mockup using my own account. It's hidden from public view and protected against search engines, so no one's going to mistake my sample for the real thing.

I'm not a member of the VDG or the Promo team, I'm just a willing volunteer. I know there's been a lot of talk lately about revamping the KDE.org website(s), so perhaps this is a good time to throw this idea out there. Or maybe not.
I worked with what pre-made clipart I could find around the various sites, and rendered a few of the icons direct from the original SVG sources. I'm sure the artists and designers in the VDG could come up with additional and improved designs. Alternatively, I'm relatively proficient in graphic design apps like
Illustrator Inkscape and Photoshop GIMP, so I might be able to lend a hand there too.
This is my first shot at creating a Phabricator task. I hope no one takes offense.
I think this is something worth doing, and I'm willing to do it. But I need the help and support of (many) others.
Please add your comments and let me know where I should start.
