As a journalist, some days you tell the story you have to tell, other days you get to tell the story you want to tell. This was definitely a story I couldn't wait to share. I love telling stories about people doing awesome things in our city. You all know by now that I am a big cheerleader for St. Louis. I love this city and I can get frustrated with the haters.
As a news station we have to tell the good along with the bad, and while the bad can often overshadow everything else, it's important to remember there are so many people working to make this city better each and ever day.
The guys behind Arch Apparel are a prime example. They started the local t-shirt company a year ago and have simply blown up across the area. You can find their stuff in a bunch of local boutiques and on their website. One thing I love is when I spot people wearing Cardinals and Blues gear when I'm traveling, even more exciting is to see people wearing shirts that simply show their a fan of the city, not just a sports team.
Plus the shirts are printed at Tiny Little Monster, a printing company based in Maplewood, so it's all super local! Plus their stuff is really cute. I'm excited for my first Blues game this year so I can rock my new blue and yellow shirt!
These are my current favs on their site, I need to find a baby (someone else's please!) to give that adorable onesie!
