Southern-style tee shirts coming to you from the Deep South! Keep your tea sweet and tee shirts purdy.
It’s been a long time coming…….
From the founders of Purdy Little Things, Purdy Sweet Tees brings you a new line of products focused on livin' in the South. Tee shirts and accessories, Southern style!
From sweet tea to fried pickles, with flip flops in the winter and fried oreos at the fair, welcome to the South - keep your tea sweet and your tee shirts purdy!
A little background on us:
Purdy Little Things began in December 2009 with an adventure in making handmade Chirstmas gifts. By January 2010, we started offering handmade Scrabble tile pendants for sale through Etsy and Facebook. Then we opened www.purdylittlethings.com. We began adding new products every few months, and really expanded when we started offering boutique-style jewelry. By late summer, we launched our Friday Night Facebook Purdy Sale…….something we’ve pretty much become infamous for…..and are still going strong after 2 1/2 years.
Now we offer dozens of handmade products and bring in 12-20 NEW boutique items each week! Our website is going through an overhaul and we’ll relaunch www.purdylittlethings.com by summer 2012. And now, after years of slowly expanding, we are getting further along on our business plan and we are ready to bring you our line of Purdy Sweet Tees! Our Southern-style tee shirts are coming to you from here in the Deep South.
We’ve tested the graphics, asked you about color options, found a fabulous LOCAL tee shirt shop, tried on lots of sample sizes of shirts and have the designs ready.
We have choosen to use KickStarter, a crowd-funding website, to launch the line and take pre-orders. We will take pre-orders through June 3rd, go to print in June and you’ll get your shirt in July – in time to show it off for the summer! Kickstarter allows you to pledge your support by pre-ordering your tee shirts at a price of $25/shirt, which includes a FREE gift and shipping. You can choose from 7 designs (some shown in the video, on Facebook; www.facebook.com/purdysweettees and our website; www.purdysweettees.com ). Each will be available in sizes for men, women, juniors and kids. Kickstarter will process the orders and handle payments for this initial pre-order stage. This is a cool way for us to gain support for the new business and be part of a really cool process – crowd-funding!
We hope you are ready for it! Here we come…..Purdy Sweet Tees! Thanks for supporting our journey and expansion. If you are ever in Starke, come by and we'll thank you with a glass of sweet tea!
Well, in our heads, about 100!! And then we have about 12 on paper....for now. But we are still working. Take a look at the video, then read through the updates for even more designs that are available as part of the pre-order/reward process.
You will be able to select from Unisex (Small - 2XL), womens (Small - 2XL), juniors (Small - 2XL) or kids (2T - 14). We will post shirt styles and sizes when the project is closer to the end in June.
Oh Good Gravy, have you ever heard a Southern'er talk?? We have a list of designs we are considering, but before we commit them to ink, we test them out with our customers, friends and family. Not all Southern sayings make for good tee shirts! (I can think of a few, can you?)
