Presidential supporters who can't make it to Washington, D.C. later this month for Barack Obama's second inaugural don't have to miss out on the schwag.

The Presidential Inaugural Committee on Thursday launched on online store with dozens of pieces of memorabilia. We're talking mugs and T-shirts and blankets and key chains.

The most pricey item: a $7,500 medallion set.

"This inauguration is an historic moment for all Americans to come together and celebrate. Whether it is a tote bag or a sweatshirt, this official memorabilia helps Americans across the country share in this special event," PIC spokeswoman Addie Whisenant said in a statement.

Those who prefer to shop in a more hands-on setting will later this month be able to visit an official retail store at 1155 F. St. NW.

To visit the online store, visit store.2013pic.org. As part of the store’s launch, the PIC is offering a 10 percent discount for first-time purchases with promo code "PIC10."
