I guess my suggestion falls in the category of "wild brainstorming and potentially 'crazy ideas'", but here I go.
Considering that OBC is already a well-established community with many members and continues to grow, how about starting a section with OBC merchandise like Bookmarks, Pens, Pencils, etc. that members could buy?

I wonder if people would buy, and I wonder how profitable it would be for OBC, given that reviewers are based all over the world. I mean, why would somoene order a pen from around the globe? Unless maybe some of the merchandise was availed electronically... in which case it might be better to give the stuff to the members for branding their digital presence and thus simultaneously promoting OBC.

I think it would make more sense to sell OBC T-shirts or garments in general. The idea of selling electronic merchandise makes sense, but I can't imagine what it could be.
