Local small business Go Big Shirts was broken into last week
and tons of their merchandise was stolen. The perpetrator was caught, but none of the merch was recovered, so in an attempt to recoup some of their losses, they'll be open this Saturday, July 15, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
You may remember Go Big from when they stepped up after the Pulse shootings to sell a line of Orlando Strong
tees (including one with Orlando Weekly's June 15, 2016, cover) designed by local artists with all profits going to Pulse survivor funds. They also partner with several local designers and Bungalower for their Orlando Shirts
line (including the super-popular neighborhoods line), and sell a small yoga-inspired
collection and a group of shirts dedicated to elephant and wildlife protection
The woman-owned and -run Mills 50 shop offers direct-to-garment printing, which makes stock issues a nonstarter – just choose your design and go. (It also means they can easily print bright color on dark garments, for you black T-shirt lovers.) They also carry posters, hats, enamel pins and various other Orlando-centric stuff. Their regular hours this summer are Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., so if you can't make it out to support on Saturday, stop by sometime (1200 E. Hillcrest St.) for all the goods you need to rep your #OrlandoPride.
