Default Finally, Visitaruba.com Merchandise Is Here!!!

yes! finally! we now have our link to all things visitaruba.com. finally we can identify each other anywhere in aruba or in the states. i am providing the link on this thread. (note the thong, lol.) there really is something for everyone. the site is open for ordering as of today. check out all of the pages of cool items.

murray and i were the test models for the 3 varieties of t-shirts. we can verify that they wash well and shrinkage is really minimal. the quality is of expensive t-shirts not the 3/$10 variety.

http://www.cafepress.com/visitaruba/

please also give us your feedback. we value what you think.

The web site says it should arrive within 5-6 business days. You can pay a little extra for expedited shipping if you're hurrying. I hadn't looked at the site in a little while, and I noticed that there's more stuff available...

Corrine - Did you ever order anything from the store? I was looking at the t-shirts and was wandering about the quality. Thanks.

No, I never got to it Donnie, because of the flood in my basement from the rain, the week before! But Sherry had given me a T-Shirt while we were in A/C. It is soft and a very nice quality!

Donnie there are different levels of quality, some of the shirts are thicker and reflect that in the prices. If you click on a shirt and then click on the 'larger version' button, details come up incl thickness and size chart. Unfortunately I based my choice on the chart and ordered a medium, but should have gotten a large. Oh well, I could stand to lose a couple pounds anyway...

Bottom line: the shirts are good quality, order with confidence!

You'll definitely be satisfied. I have a t-shirt and a thong that I put on every time the gag-ball makes its appearance!

Hi everyone. I know I have been away from here for awhile. However, I am very glad to see that the items are now available for all members. We had our shirts on in Aruba last October and several people asked us how to get one. All items look great and I thank all those who helped make this happen. Mostly I give credit to Sherry and Daphnie. Way to go girls!!!

Thanks Kevin and Sherry. It was just an idea I had way back when and thanks to all of you it took off. An idea is one thing but it takes someone to do the work. So for all those responsible I say thanks again! Great job and because of you we now have the ability to recognize our VisitAruba.com bb members on the island or anywhere for that matter.

Finally placed my order for April! One for me, one for Steve and a sticker for my car! The stuff looks great! Great descriptions and photos! I thought you guys were kidding about the thongs!

I want to personally thank whoever wrote the copy and explained the camisole and spaghetti strap T-Shirts were for "junior" sizes! I had my heart set on one of those but I would have been so disappointed if it didn't fit. Got the tank instead!

I can't wait to get them!

Corrine - we just got our order this week. The shirts look and fit great and the hat I got will be a great addition to my collection. I can't wait to wear them next June! Taylor was mad when I didn't get her a pink one just like Val's.

Donnie - You will be happy with the quality! Our shirts have been washed quite a few times and they held up really well!

I am hoping so Corrine. They were very reasonably priced also. It only took 3 days from the order date to arrive!
