For all those Durhamites who take great pride in the Bull City, who love equally its grit and glamour, you can still get your "Durham Rocks" and "Durham Love Yourself" stickers, tees and other merch online.
James and Michelle Lee, former purveyors of the now-defunct Untidy Museum and 305 South Anti-Mall, announced today on Durham's arts e-mail list that the items are available through Cafe Press.
This is not meant as a commercial endorsement, but to many, the initial introduction of the "Durham Love Yourself" tees and stickers years ago spurred a larger, more vocal and collective movement toward Durhamite pride, garnering a lot of attention. (And we know many of our Bull City readers wanted to know how to get their hands on them.) So file this in the "special exception" category.
And while we're on the subject of Durham-oriented clothing, check out this amusing video from Wine Authorities, who made T-shirts that say "Durham: crunchy on the outside, warm and delicious on the inside."
