Shopping Local with Thickety Creek Cotton Company

 

It is officially springtime in South Carolina, and I couldn’t be more excited. Weekend days will be spent on the coast or cruising up and down the river. Adventure is our game, after all. The boys are at such a fun age. They just have so much energy, and they can’t be held inside. So we go places! We take them to run all around in the woods. Throwing rocks in the water, finding turkey tracks, climbing trees– all while we wait anxiously for the water to be warm enough to swim in. Thinking about sitting on a sandbar, soaking up the sun, feeling the cool breeze at my back, watching my boys splash around on the shoreline just gives me all the feels right now.

Tee shirt weather is finally here.

So I couldn’t be more excited to have found a little local company to share with y’all: Thickety Creek Cotton Company. The softest shirts ever. They are 100% supima cotton– which– I’ll go ahead and say this right now– like you, I had no idea what that was either. So being the millennial I am, naturally, my first step was to Google it. Come to find out that supima cotton is “the cashmere of cotton.” No wonder the shirt is so soft!

In the south, you can never have enough tee shirts– it’s a fact of life. So my husband and I are always looking to add to our vast collections of frat-tastic shirts– Southern Proper, Southern Marsh, Palmetto Moon, Vineyard Vines, collegiate shirts, Water Festival tees, old sorority and fraternity shirts, etc. Well now, we can add Thickety Creek Cotton Company to that list. These are the perfect shirts to throw on over a bathing suit for a day at the beach. Or, in my case, a day on the river. You know that soft old tee shirt that you have that you’ve had forever and you’ll probably never get rid of because it’s been worn in so well? That’s what these shirts feel like when they’re new! It’s ah-mazing.

There is something else amazing about this brand though. They give portions of their profit to children’s charities, like St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Childhood cancer research is a cause that is dear to my heart, so if I can help raise funds for that while buying a quality tee  shirt, then I would consider that a win for everyone involved.
