Bought two Last Straw shirts for my grown daughters ( they loved going there, especially on their birthdays), Highlander shirt for my son (he worked there), Prince Castle shirt for my husband (popular stop in Dixon back in the day) and a Union Hall shirt for myself ( my kids' school supplies were bought at Union Hall until it closed). We will be wearing these shirts as part of our Christmas cards this coming year. Quality is good and my family loved getting them. Brought back lots of memories.
The Last Straw was an Ice Cream Parlour and Family Restaurant with two locations in Rockford. The old fashion theme, authentic soda fountain and gigantic Firewagon Special (which served 1 to 10) made it a popular eatery for hanging out and special occasions.
52% combed and ring-spun cotton 48% polyester, preshrunk, 4.2 oz. Super soft with a fashion fit.
Bought this shirt for both my Aunt and my Uncle. They met at the Last Straw and I've grown up hearing stories about how that was the place of their first date and more. When I saw these awhile back, I knew I had to buy them for them. I purchased them, and had them shipped directly to my Aunt and Uncle. I asked that the packing slip not be included (or if it was to not include price) and mentioned it was a gift. From the picture my ecstatic Aunt sent me, it appears not only did they keep the slip out, they wrote a small note, stating this was a "gift from XXXX" and looks like there was tissue paper covering the shirt (the only other shirt I've purchased from them, I bought at a market/fair, so the paper may be standard). Either way, I'm so grateful that I was able to surprise my family with this shirt and make their day wonderful- and am even more grateful that Bygone was able to help!
