Make a Gift with your Collection of T-Shirts

Use Collectible T-Shirts to Make Great Gifts

High quality blank t shirts are pretty difficult to find unless you buy an entire pack of them. I like the witty sayings and attractive designs discovered on most T-Shirts however sometimes I just need a simple, clean, blank tee. This always seems to pose a shopping challenge however, I discovered a few places to look.

I used to be pleasantly surprised when I sought out blank t shirts at my local arts and crafts stores. They would have tees that were remarkably low-priced and usually of moderate quality. I wouldn’t trust that these tees would endure a decade of abuse but they would perform well under regular circumstances and work out okay for simple projects.

The t-shirts I found here locally in a thrift store came in a wide array of colors starting from vibrant neon to tender pastels. The entire t-shirts area took up the whole front of the shop with an enormous sign that boasted a meager price tag. The cost was so low that even little kids shook their heads and mentioned that it couldn’t be right.

The good news is  that it was right. The plain t shirts were being offered at prices that stated out at a dollar. I kept staring at the register in  disbelief so I decided to ask the clerk if the price was accurate. She said that nobody was shopping for them and they’re simply cutting their losses.

I couldn’t really understand why these shirts wouldn’t sell when these kinds of tees had been so difficult to find. Many people look for blank t shirts so they can use fabric paint to create their own designs. There are also  kits available so  that folks can use them to come up with custom designs. The scarcity of blank t shirts would make such prospects practically impossible.

After speaking to the clerk, I made a decision to go shopping. I purchased a countless number of plain t shirts in each color. I now have a pretty nice collection of them. The wonderful thing about the shirts is that they make nice gifts when I am in a pinch.

Personalised presents are always appreciated. Many people love getting handcrafted items that take time and thought to create. I have used my assortment of blank t shirts to create unique gifts for birthdays and holidays on plenty of occasions. I additionally use them each time I wish to involve my daughter in artwork projects. Nothing is cuter than a child’s foot print on a shirt.
