Weiland’s Market Brings Back Vintage Shirt Design
Old things sometimes come back in vogue and that’s especially true when you have a great vintage design in your company’s archive.
Weiland’s Market had just a design. A promotional banner hanging in the store shows Jennifer Williams, now the owner of Weiland’s Market, the business she grew up in, wearing the shirt promoting what was then ‘Weiland’s Fine Meats’.
“I never thought I’d see an original shirt again,” says Williams. “I’m sure the one I was wearing in the photo was sold at a garage sale, or put in the rag bag to wash cars.”
Longtime customer Agnes Benedict recently brought an original orange-and-black shirt into the store and that provided the base for the new shirts.
“She’d kept it since 1977!” says Williams. “Agnes returned it to us and that’s what made it possible to reproduce.”
The company is working with online retailer Outfit Good, a Columbus screen-printing company that donates $10 of every shirt sale back to the community, to produce the shirts.
The new shirts are priced starting at $20 and available in original tangerine (100% cotton, pre-shrunk) and updated charcoal gray (65% cotton, 35% polyester soft blend). To get your shirt in time for the holidays, place your order by December 5.
