Whistlestop Gifts, located within the Dowagiac train depot, is pleased to debut several new merchandise lines, from Dowagiac coffee mugs with a retro vibe, to embroidered caps, travel bags and even stadium blankets.
Chamber treasurer Kris Soenen, owner of Who Knew? Consignment, said these are fabulous gifts representing and supporting our hometown. “Unisex crewneck t-shirts and hoodies sport the Chamber’s new logo, which represents our community with a strong modern vibe. It boldly depicts town, with a graphic allusion to our rural and lake communities, represented by the supporting green & blue underlines.”
Soenen said the Greetings from Dowagiac mug, with a retro postcard feel, sports images of landmarks from around the community with a Mill Pond background. “The mug was developed in conjunction with the team at Creative Vinyl, which understood our vision.”
Stadium blankets are perfect for people attending football games or the summer concert series. Soenen worked with Casual Tees in the development of the blankets and apparel. She said proceeds from the sale of gift wear benefit programs that bring people to our community and continuing efforts to build a strong local economy.
