I’m a huge Bernie Sanders’ fan. Make that a YUUGE fan. I started with one Bernie t-shirt but found that I needed one for every day of the week. Everywhere I went, I wanted to advocate for Bernie. Wearing a campaign shirt makes it easy to start a conversation about your favorite candidate, Senator Bernie Sanders. Even if I just went to the farmer’s market for some strawberries, I wore my Bernie shirt and necklace.
Here I am in my favorite Bernie shirt, “Talk Bernie to me.” This is at the rally in Florida in March.
Bernie Gear: Shirts – Of course, you’ll want Bernie shirts, hats and buttons to wear to a rally or a march. Maybe you’ll be handing out literature to people outside the polling area or have a Bernie information booth at a street festival. All of those are great occasions to deck yourself in your Bernie gear.

Bernie Gear: Caps – Many men wear a cap everywhere they go, so select the style of Bernie cap that is his favorite. Maybe the baseball cap for sun protection or for cold weather, choose a knit cap to pull down over the ears. These styles work fine for both men and women.
The bucket style hat is a fun look too and provides shade both in the front and the back. You need to wear your cap for standing in line at the rallies. People get there hours ahead of time to get close to the stage so they can see Bernie and maybe get to shake his hand afterwards. Anyway, it means standing quite a while in line in the sun or the cold, depending on your local weather.

Why is a hat important? Here’s what one young mother, Candy M. says her Bernie hat does: “OK I live in Portland Oregon which admittedly is pretty in the bag for Sanders but can I just say that since adding this hat I have had so many amazing wonderful interactions with people. A kid who could not have been more than eight years old just said “Bernie!” When he saw me. I’ve had people of varying race sexual orientation, gender and age groups express their kinship and approval at seeing my hat. I do not drive so walking around the neighborhood in this hat with my two children in their double stroller (we do easily 4 miles a day) is my bumper sticker. I noticed a particular trend amongst the people in the service industry. Deli counter, coffee counter, checkout counter. People who might otherwise see me as from a different world than theirs can now see how alike we are. It means more than a sports team or a band. It’s sharing common ideals for the betterment of our country. What a wonderful feeling.”
Bernie Gear: Props – Here’s a selection of fun Bernie props to decorate your home or personal office or for your Bernie Sanders booth. These are great if you’re decorating a campaign office or for a Bernie phone banking party at your home. Invite the neighbors over for a debate watching party. They won’t have to guess who you are supporting, once they see all the Bernie gear decorating your event.

The cardboard, Bernie stand-up figure is a popular prop at rallies and at campaign headquarters. Everyone wants to get their photo taken with the figure. One of my Florida friends was thrilled when her husband got her the cardboard Bernie for a birthday gift. She posts lots of pictures on Facebook of her and cardboard Bernie. For St. Patrick’s Day, he sported a shamrock and Irish cap. For New Year’s Eve, she posted a photo of her toasting Bernie with champagne. She says her husband isn’t jealous of the Bernie figure, as he’s a Sanders’ fan too.
Bernie Gear: Jewelry – Don’t forget little touches like a ring, earrings or a necklace featuring Senator Sanders. Some designs use the iconic glasses and hair to symbolize Bernie. They are instantly recognized by other Berners who become instant friends. It’s like a secret handshake for an elite society, but in this case, Bernie is for everyone. If someone says, “I like your earrings,” it means they are a Bernie supporter too.
