DESIGNED IN MI. MADE IN THE USA.

Do you know where TMS products come from?  All of our apparel, including our super soft vintage t-shirts and hoodies are made in the USA.  And our Mitten Car Decals are made right here in Michigan.  We think it's important for a few reasons, some of which might not be obvious right away: 1) we think we have a responsibility as an active American business to support our local and national economy, 2) quality assurance can be difficult to monitor overseas, and 3) we prefer building relationships with our neighbors.

 

What does this mean for you?  Well, to some degree, it might not really matter.  But what we hope it conveys is peace of mind.  When you buy a TMS product, you can rest assured that it was not manufactured under sweat shop conditions in a dreary factory in Southeast Asia by underage employees.  Moreover, because we source locally, we can keep an eye out for quality assurance and ensure that you're receiving the highest quality possible, on a consistent basis.

 

We hope everyone is enjoying this holiday season and not letting the stressful parts of it overshadow the many positives. :)  Shop local!

 

Love,

The MItten State

SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY

2 years ago, we opened up shop here in MI. You could buy any shirt, as long as it was in blue. Ha. We've come a ways since then, and we want to thank all of you for supporting TMS. We wouldn't be here without you.

 

In honor of that and Small Business Saturday, we're keeping the "BlackFriday" 20% off code working today as well.

 

Love,

THE GIFT INSIDER LOVES TMS

November 23, 2011

THE GIFT INSIDER LOVES TMS

The Gift Insider scours boutiques, magazines, and the web for the best and newest gifts and then places them in thoughtfully categorized entries on their great website.  There's no charge, they do all the work for you,  and the best part?  The girls that run this company are from Michigan. 

 

When they contacted us recently, we were honored to be included in their catalog of recommendations.  Check out their review of our vintage TMS Love shirt here.  And because they are selective about what they include, you can rest assured that you'll find a great idea for this holiday season on their website.  Although, you'll most likely be buying TMS stuff anyway, right?

 

But seriously, we love them because they understand the same thing that we value most at TMS: thoughtfully branded products that keep customers happy and that form the basis of a solid reputation.  Check them out at TheGiftInsider.com.

 

Love,

The Mitten State
