Last Minute World Ukulele Day Shirts

Want one of these?

Your wish is my command — yes, we’ll have shirts this year. I’ll be placing the order in time for World Ukulele Day (February 2)

  • Is it sold by the Edmonton Ukulele Circle?  Nope, same as last time, these items are designed and produced and offered by a Circle member to you.
  • When will I get it?  On or before February 2.
  • Is it the same brand of shirt as last time? Yes. This shirt is ROYAL BLUE in colour; standard order is a unisex short sleeve Gildan heavyweight cotton, sizes S-M-L-XL-2XL-3XL. Cost is $30, payable by e-transfer. A small number of common sizes will be made available for the naked or the late or the impulse shopper.
  • Can you special-request ladies or youth sizes? How about unisex 4XL and 5XL? Yeah, I got your back. You can also ask about other sizes, and you will be accommodated if they are available. These special requests must be prepaid by e-transfer, however, as they will not be ordered unless they have a happy home to go to.
  • Why is it last minute? Ideally, this would have been decided and arranged earlier, but it was not.
  • What else you got goin’ on? I am already stylishly dressed! I have tote bags tough enough to carry both Daily Ukulele books, plus carry your kazoo and your water bottle, in two different designs. I have strings, of many varieties in soprano, concert, and tenor (baritone sold out). I still have Hipster Owl shirts from last year, also. (People who were interested in a reorder and did not pick up or contact me — I probably still have your shirt. If you want it, let me know, or I’ll free them for sale to others on February 2!)
