That off size champion sweatshirt in Orange? Huh?
I had the inside scoop.
My friends, Moira and Hal live in Amsterdam, so when I told them I’d be in country for Hal’s birthday 4/27 they reminded me that date is “Kings Day”!
An exuberant Moira said “you must wear orange!” Leave it to Hal… he would share a birthday with the Dutch King!
Mark found these off market-wrong sized Job lot sweatshirts for $10 a piece.
I mean honestly, orange on Cape Cod means you’re a hunter, a life guard, or you’re working traffic duty on Route 151.
So Mark purchased 2. But then I called Marcy… and suddenly there were 4 or maybe 5…. Then there were 7 and before long there were 14! I was scurrying to Job Lots on and off Cape to find the right sizes. I was a woman on a mission….
Sadly, I ended up special ordering the smaller sizes…
What? The snowball effect… yet my embroidery queen appreciated a bigger order than only 4…. Denise has known me longer than most and she is the best embroiderer I know! But setting her machine for a batch smaller than 10 is just silly!
So 14 folk received sweat shirts to celebrate the Dutch King!
I will wear mine on Kings Day in Amsterdam! You will see me in the sea of Orange… however after this trip, I will walk the dogs during hunting season in this limited edition sweatshirt!
I suspect some of my entrepreneurial friends will sell theirs on Kings Day for a premium … and this limited edition shirt will see many more Dutch celebrations!
All because orange is the color, Mark found a terrific price at Job Lot, Sea Shore Embroidery gave me the long life love price on the logo!
And Voila! Here you have our limited edition Kings Day Sweatshirts!
