Each holiday season Flint Expatriate Shawn Chittle opens a retro t-shirt shop with proceeds to benefit the Whaley Children's Center. This year he has recreated 16 vintage Flint shirts that he owns. It's only open during December, so this is your brief chance to get a custom-made memento of Flint landmarks like Smith-Bridgman's, Ace Record Exchange and many more.
Go here to order shirts.
To promote the store, Shawn will be running a weekly trivia contest at shawnchittle.com. The first person to correctly answer the trivia question each week via email gets a free t-shirt of their choice.

Thanks for commenting. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at www.teardownbook.com.
