Keith Urban wore one of our Save the Big One T-shirts on “American Idol,” and we’ve had a lot of people asking how they can get one. All of our stock is currently at City Bird in Midtown Detroit, but we’ll be making more. If you want one and can’t get to City Bird, you can e-mail us at [email protected]

Books for the holidays - and help save a landmark
Dec. 11, 2013
Through the end of the year, HistoricDetroit.org will donate 50% of all profits from sales in our online store to the effort to save the steeple of historic St. Josaphat in Detroit. The steeple was heavily damaged in a windstorm recently, and the congregation can’t afford to repair it without your help. Not only will you help this Detroit icon, but you can scratch off that Detroit history-lover on your shopping list AND score authentic vintage Detroit postcards to boot. Order now to guarantee delivery by the holidays.
We’ve also stopped carrying our T-shirt line in our online store. It was simply too difficult to keep up with demand for various sizes at City Bird and online. But fret not! Our Hudson’s, vintage Book-Cadillac and retro Made in Detroit USA T-shirts are still available - exclusively now - at City Bird in Midtown Detroit.
