Bella+Canvas 52% cotton and 48%poly unisex tshirt in vintage Carolina Blue with scarlet heart.
This is our 2020 shirt! As Covid-19 shut down our community and only essential workers were allowed to work, we saw large pallets of hearts popping up all over the Cape as a sign of gratitude for nurses, doctors, hospital staff, grocery store workers, postal workers, gas station attendants, and all those keeping us afloat and safe. Carol and Michelle wanted to bring something to Ptown, and knew it had to be a smaller version. Carol went to the hardware store, asked for a dozen paint stirrers and made the first of the #ptownhearts. We have since made over 200 and given them to restaurants and shops as they’ve opened in town. For us, they are a gift, a sign of resiliency, and a reminder that in this small town we are all in it together. We didn’t anticipate that visitors would then want signs (they do). It was never our intention to sell them. Instead we have created this shirt which is made from a photo of the signs- you can even see the bumps in the paint stirrers. If you want a memory of this time and an image from Ptown, we think this shirt is it. If you want a heart sign, we highly recommend you make one- our’s are super simple, but seriously drawing a heart on a piece of paper accomplishes the same thing.
