Retse Designs Store Give-Away: P is for Pumpkin

Thursday, October 08, 2009


This month, P is for Pumpkin. And judging by the children's alphabet shirts at Retse Designs Store - there is a great start to some adorable alphabet tees that give back to the community with every purchase.

It's the story behind these lettered-tees that really made me take notice. For every shirt you buy, they contribute $1 to a related charity. And every shirt is currently "designed" by her 6 year old daughter! Retse and her husband just help bring her print the designs on the charitable tees. Their alphabet shirts give $1 to the Foundation for Seminole County Public Schools to keep art in the classroom. Currently Retse Designs has 5 alphabet shirts to choose from, but her collection is growing to include the complete alphabet. Designs include:

A is for Alligator
C is for Car
E is for Elephant
M is for Monkey
P is for Pumpkin


Retse was kind enough to send a C is for Car shirt for both of my boys. I was surpprised to see the shirts were American Apparel brand! I have other tees that are American Apparel and they are well made, soft and wear well. They are 100% Fine Jersey cotton construction. The shirts that were sent were 4T and they fit my small 3 year old and large 1 year old perfectly. Okay, it was a little "long" on my "little one" - but I like that he can grow into it. The graphic was printed perfectly on the tees - and the imagery was bright, colorful and playful!

Also, we put these tees through the wringer. We wore them to Epcot, they spilled soup and food on them, lots of sweat from the heat, we washed and dried them .. and they came out great! Perfect for playtime again!

The tees are available in sizes 6 months through size 6. The infant sizes feature a neckband designed for easy on-and-off. Retse says that her t-shirts run small and she suggests ordering a full size larger than usual. So, if your child is normally a 3, order a 4. The shirts cost $15 a piece.

What's super is that Retse Designs will accommodate custom orders for parties, family reunions, party favors or fundraisers, the order must be for 30 or more. If you need a shirt created for a cause, contact Retse direct and see what her team can come up with!
