This is (by far) our most frequently asked question…
“Where can I buy a No Pity scarf?”
It’s easier than you think, but also not as easy as we’d all like it to be.
Your best bet is to follow the No Pity Van’s Twitter account (yes, it’s a van with an online presence). You’ll always have the latest info on the whereabouts of the Timbers Army’s official merch-slingin’-operation-on-wheels. Also, before and after all home matches the van is parked in one of the bays at Rack Attack, 1737 SW Morrison Street (across from Jeld-Wen Field at the corner of SW 18th and Morrison St)
However, you should keep the following in mind when looking to buy a No Pity scarf:
- We do not sell No Pity scarves online. We prefer to maintain our old-school merchandising method for this particular item. They have always been delivered face-to-face — reflecting both our DIY roots and the personal connection you make as you join the Timbers Army.
- No Pity scarves are hot commodities. They don’t stay on the shelf for very long. The TA merch crew does their best to keep them in stock, but sometimes that can be difficult. Following the aforementioned Twitter account will help you plan ahead for your purchase.
- The 107ist (the machine behind the Timbers Army) is a non-profit operation. All scarves are sold at cost ($10). If you buy one on eBay, you run a great risk of getting ripped off.
- Despite being awesome, the TA Merch Van still needs occasional maintenance. It doesn’t have a reliable 24/7 mechanic or repair budget like vans belonging to The A-Team or the Scooby-Doo Gang. If something happens to the Merch Van, it may take some time to get it back on the road.
Our dream is for every Timbers fan to own a No Pity scarf. But like most dreams, they take time and effort to become a reality. So if you stumble across the TA Merch Van and have an opportunity to buy a No Pity scarf right there, don’t delay!
