It seems that November 1 is the beginning of the holiday season now. Sure, you may see a few winter decorations before now, but once Halloween is over, stores nationwide feel they can really push all that holiday fun. It seems to upset some people who'd rather everyone wait until after Thanksgiving to start the holiday spirit, but the Shirt Snob loves it. We are ready to start our holiday buying now, and we'd prefer to finish buying well before Thanksgiving is over. So of course, we are ready for this new tee from Busted Tees, Don't Stop Believin'. If you celebrate Christmas, this one might be for you!
We aren't too sure how the Shirt Snob has missed Primo Tees so far, but at least found them eventually. We couldn't help but be automatically drawn to the Heads Up Seven Up tee, as it brings back memories of substitute teachers having no idea what to do with us and recess indoors on rainy days. This game was always a favorite of ours, and we can't help but be thrilled to be reminded of it after all these years. There are other funny tees like I'm Huge in Japan and Wally World. Each tee is also printed on American Apparel, so you know they're good quality.

Well, the Shirt Snob can't lie. If we don't like something, we'll admit it. And this week at Threadless, we aren't very impressed. We really like one tee, That Way. But besides that, we don't care for their new tees. However, a favorite has been reprinted, Ah Munna Eat Choo. The Shirt Snob husband own it, and we haven't been bored with the design yet. But overall, it's a disappointing week after a great sale. But maybe they figure we've all just bought tees, and they are saving their best designs for the upcoming weeks as the holidays approach.
We really think this next one from Fred Flare is very cute. The Love Birds Tee is such a sweet design, and the colors of the birds contrast really well with the brown background we think. Love is in the air always, not just during February, so why not show it?

Snorg now has a Mystery Grab Bag available on their site for $5.95. Their inventory is full of misprints, discontinued designs, and shirts with a small hole or stain, so they are now getting rid of them for cheap prices. You send them your size, and you get a random shirt. They can't be returned or exchanged, but if you like a little mystery, this might be a good idea. The Shirt Snob was always a huge fan of the grab bags at our county fair as a child, so we think this is a fun idea.
Vintage Edge is having a Halloween Sale. Between now and November 2, get 20% off all their t-shirts. Use the code "Random20" in the Discount Code Box in your shopping cart to have this deal apply. This even applies to their Bargain Bin. However, you cannot use this deal if you are trying to get free shipping by buying three or more tees. You can only do one or the other. If you're on MySpace, add Vintage Edge as your friend so you can learn about more deals just like this one only available to their friends.

Miele Fresca has three new t-shirt designs available for the holidays. Our favorite is Poppy, but they are all cute. There's also a sale on the designs from the spring and summer, between 20-35% off!
We haven't written about Snorg Tees for a very long time, so we thought we'd bring them up again. We can't help but love their Red Stapler tee (Office Space is truly a classic movie in our book), and as we're also huge fans of The Colbert Report, we really like the tee #1 Threat to America Bears. But I'm Kind of a Big Deal is still our favorite tee of theirs.

Quick! Get over to Threadless! They are having another $10 sale, but it's only through Wednesday of this week, and their tees are going fast. Get a start on your holiday shopping or just buy for yourself. Either way, you really should take advantage of this sale. There's tons of designs to choose from, including the new ones Nineteen Seventy Five, Waiting for Sleep, and Night Birds, and the reprint Nuts (which the Shirt Snob husband owns and loves). Just be careful of the Threadless Select tees, not all of them are on sale and the ones that are seem to be more expensive.
Punch Apparel has a new women's tee that we like. Maybe it's because we've eaten nothing but Mexican food all weekend long, but Mexcellent! just fits our mood right now. Plus, every fall the Shirt Snob has to restrain herself from buying up every brown (and orange) tee we see. Autumn colors are our favorites, especially this time of year.
