2017 Box Sale Recap & Online SALE

Today was pretty incredible.....
I woke up at 5am. Wide awake and a little nervous. Almost nervous like it is the morning of a race. Im wondering-Will we have a bunch of people come this year?? We they like the inventory available?   I climb in the tub and I look at my phone and immediately see where a fun group of 5 ladies have posted on IG that they were the first ones to get 4AM!!!

WOW! Im shocked, excited and relieved. To think that people love the shirts that much (and a REALLY good Deal!!!) that they will climb out of bed and sit outside for 3 hours to maybe purchase some of our shirts is pretty amazing. We surprised those first 5 with their own Mr P's Gray logo hats. Yay!
Thank you thank you thank you!!!! We love being the Black Friday of T Shirt Sales!!! And we loved seeing your posts too. So funny to read "waiting on t shirt royalty"-thanks Rob Hammond :)
and thanks for the shout out Maggie :)

So here are some crowd pics from this morning... People brought chairs-good thinking.

They huddled around in groups.

That sat on the ground too. 

  To show our appreciation for the folks who got out there super early, we had our friend Julie Emory pick up a large nugget tray from Chick filet and some small bottled water.

She walked up and down the line offering food to the folks that had been patiently waiting all morning long. I think they were a hit. Here were a few of the folks she snapped pics of in line.

  We opened a few minutes early. Robby AKA Bouncer #1 explained where everything was and how it would all work, and then the crowd rushed in....Go! Go! Go !
and it was pretty slammed until about 9am.

Then, the crowd finally slowed up a tad at 9am (there were quite a few soccer games today. Brent was able to sneak away from the sale and go help coach Pearson's team this morning) and was steady until we closed the doors at 11am.

  Got to see lots of folks that showed up in their current tees. People were happy with the money they saved. I also thought it all seemed to run a lot smoother this year compared to last year.
Maybe it was the different layout that Brent came up with??
  Big thank you to this amazing group of friends who volunteered their time to work and help us.
I know how precious time is....especially a free Saturday morning.

...Thank you Beth, Erin, Eva, Lisa, Kourtney, Amy, Julie, Kathryn and Robby.
   We now have all the remaining items on our website. Look under SALE ITEMS and everything left is listed. Go to  I was an idiot and Brent found 2 boxes in our storage room that I forgot to take to the sale.  Ugggggg! They were a mix of short sleeve adult tees and tanks. These have now been added too. We will keep the online sale going for a couple of days and then take it down to start prepping for our new spring designs coming out.

Thank you again for a great morning. Stay tuned for our Brand Rep Search info....
