Brewery Avenue Designs: Bisbee T-shirts and more
I was too late in Bisbee to do shopping and watch art in local galleries. But Brewery Avenue Designs was, too my surprise, open althugh it was about 6 pm, I think. It was the only store open that time in Bisbee or maybe its owner just came to close it. The next door BizzArt Galleries was unfortunatelly closed. I saw aome interesting artworks displayed behind its window and fence. Do not skip it - 30 local artists in various mediums are represented there. Both stores are located in pretty renovated, historic buildings.
The Brewery Avenue Designs, Inc is the maker of custom Bisbee products which include t-shirts, jackets, denims, hats, aprons, and afghans. A second location can be found at 307 Arizona Street. It provides wholesale screen printing and embroidery services.
What to buy: This little story located in beautiful historic building was full of Bisbee T-shirts both for kids and adults. I liked some black and white and blue ones with grey-black panoramic view over the town.
What to pay: Inexpensive. I can't remember exact price but it was about $5 - $10 per Bisbee T-shirt, depends on size and pattern.
