Swag that Supports
Small Business Community

These T-Shirts are *so* comfy to wear & I feel good representing a mission I love! BRB, buying EVERYTHING!

Every time RTS has a merch drop, I'm running to my phone to purchase it right away. My favorites are the "We Rise Together" tee, the "It's Cool to Support Local" tank, and the "Do What You Love" hoodie. I love that there are different styles available for each design which means I can make something totally unique. Can't wait to get my hands on more merch!

I bought the “It’s cool to support local” crewneck sweatshirt in the gray and I am OBSESSED.

I usually fall in between sizes and so I went a size up and it is the perfect slightly-oversized comfy sweatshirt. The inside is incredibly soft.

I wear this shirt as often as I can — it’s one of my favorite pieces of clothing. And I just love the saying on it — I’ve had multiple people comment on it when I wear it.

- Wendy Z.

Don't mind me living in my new crewneck!

I bought a size up for the oversized look and the soft cozy feel of the crewneck has me wearing it all. the. time. I love that I am supporting small business and encouraging others to do the same every time I wear it with the "It's cool to support local" design. 

I also bought a t-shirt true to size and it fits perfectly. I love that it has longer sleeves too.
