Clarion Vintage T-shirts are top sellers!

Take a trip down memory lane with FL Crooks & Co. as they celebrate days gone by with their unique Clarion Vintage T-shirts. These great short-sleeved shirts are taking Clarion by storm as they celebrate numerous businesses that thrived once upon a time in Clarion.

Nostalgia is dominating this year's top fashion searches so these shirts have become super hot sellers as people look to the past for inspiration, comfort, and great memories.

Jim Crooks, owner of FL Crooks & Co., came up with the idea of these throwback tee's and has worked diligently to see it come to fruition. The design work is being done by local artist Karl Jacobson, and the shirts are printed locally by DE Sports. Jim states, "These vintage t-shirts have touched a nerve. It's all about reconnecting with the people and places of our past."

The water-based screen printed t-shirts are super soft and range in price from $22 to $30 depending on how many colors are utilized for each individual shirt, ranging from two to five colors. The fabric of the various shirts range from 50% to 100% cotton and are machine washable.

Past popular businesses featured include the following: Apollodorus, Clarion Clipper, Dew Drop Inn, Emerson's, The Garby, Herman's, Hot Dog House, Jamesway, Longhorn, Murphy's, The Orpheum, Ragley's, The Roost, Skateland, Thelma's Diner, Trader Horn, Wilkinson's TV & Video and more.

Clarion University is featured with shirts that pay tribute to Seminary Hall, Wilkinson & Nair residence halls, and a special Clarion State College shirt.
Buy a Clarion Vintage t-shirt for yourself or for a friend and celebrate Clarion's rich heritage of super wonderful people and businesses that filled the landscape of our past with terrific memories.

Nostalgically,
Lydia

"Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful." -Norman Vincent Peale
Every season has its charm, but Christmas can stand head and shoulders above the rest as the most wonderful time of the year. I asked the staff at FL Crooks & Co. to take me on their path to Christmas joy with this question: What makes/made it a merry Christmas for you? Do you have a favorite Christmas memory, tradition, gift that stands out in your memory?

While substitute teaching some years ago, a book on a teacher's desk caught my attention. (English teachers always have the most interesting books in their classrooms!) I recently came across the book again at the Clarion Free Library and noticed how many of the words and images are perfect for this time of the year as we transition from summer to autumn.
