MV T’s …

Since I mentioned t-shirts in my last post I thought I’d carry the subject through to this post.  Almost all of us collect t-shirts and I’m no different except that almost all of mine are from the Vineyard.  They’re a good way to not only have memories of places but have new clothing as well….. when it comes time to have to get rid of them I sometimes take pictures of the ones I know I can’t replace.


These three are from events that I went to.Illumination Night in Oak Bluffs which takes place this year on Wed, Aug 20, 2014. The Harry Connick Jr/Carly Simon concert at the Tabernacle on Sep 16, 1990. And also at the Tabernacle, the Boston Pops on Aug 4, 2001.

This grouping is of places on MV. The Flying Horses in Oak Bluffs.Espresso Love in Edgartown. Midnight Farm store in Vineyard Haven. The old Tivoli building in Oak Bluffs.
100_6715  Black Dog t-shirts are very popular of course  but this red BD shirt is from around 1987, which is before the well known image of the BD appeared.


Miscellaneous shirts including the Vineyardosaurus.  A Chappy shirt because our dog is named Chappy. The “It’s A Vineyard Thing” shirt because well, with me everything becomes a Vineyard thing.

100_6301 I like the MV map with all the towns shown on it.   The black one because of the design and the word ‘Vineyard’ at the very end of the spiral.

As for the orange one… anyone know what the *a  stands for ?  For a long time you had to be in the ‘know’ to know it?  Care to venture a guess ! 🙂

Unlike the above mentioned t-shirts, this t-shirt has a story. Okay, some of the others have stories too… but not quite like this one !

I'm married, I have two daughters and two grandchildren and they all love MV. Enjoy my MV blog and contact me if I can answer any questions. This blog started out as strictly about Martha's Vineyard but over the years I've branched out to include other obsessions and interests. I enjoy photography and like sharing my photos here as well. I'm also into genealogy and reading. Hope you enjoy :)
