If you’re reading this blog post, you likely love Michigan. Not the University, but the state itself. Want to show off your state pride? Here are a few stores to shop at to show your pure Michigan pride.
The Mitten State
The Mitten State has been known to have some of the softest t-shirts around. Their t-shirts have some funny sayings, including “I never pass on a bower!,” “Toledo War Champs!,” “It’s Called Pop Not Soda” and more. The Mitten State is great if you need to stock up on apparel for your favorite Michigan school too. Not only does the company have some great threads, they also have a variety of unique trinkets that would make good gifts too. The company also does a daily t-shirt giveaway, sign up here. Shop online or visit their store in Grand Rapids.
Michigan Awesome has apparel for the whole family, including your four-legged family members. Michigan Awesome has added adorable dog collars and leashes to their collection of goods. While you’re picking up goodies for your pet, you might as well get a shirt for yourself too. They also have a great selection of glasses for wine or beer. Find Michigan Awesome online.
MacKite offers a lot of great Michigan apparel options for the whole family. They are best known for their Michigangster shirts and tanks, but I personally love my “Great Lakes State of Mind” tank from them. Not only do they have you covered for clothes, they also have everything you’d need for a beach day. Visit MacKite online or at their locations in Grand Haven.
If you don’t know what M22 is, you aren’t a true Michigander. M22 is a route along the Lake Michigan shoreline that is known for its fall foliage colors. It is also a store with State of Michigan merchandise, primarily focusing on M22 though. Check out their goodies on their website.
Michigan is known as America’s high five so why not show your pure Michigan pride with clothes from High Five Threads. Like the other stores on this list, they have more than just t-shirts. They also have a variety of knick-knacks that would make good gifts. Check out their bottle openers for starters. High Five Threads can be found online or at their retail store in Traverse City.
All of the stores listed above have a great selection of unique items but if you want something a little more special, Etsy is your answer. Etsy has a variety of items to choose from that you can personalize.
