Vintage Roadside designs a T-shirt for Jake the Alligator Man!

We're huge fans of roadside attractions here at Vintage Roadside. One of our favorite stops is Marsh's Free Museum in Long Beach, Washington which houses a large collection of vintage arcade games, taxidermy, nautical items, and the star of the show - Jake the Alligator Man.

On August 8th, 2009 Jake fans from far and wide will be in Long Beach for Jake's "Third Annual 75th Birthday Party". The party will feature, among other activities, a hot rod show, live music, birthday cake, burlesque performances, and a drive in screening of The Creature From the Black Lagoon. For those looking to bring home a piece of Jake there will be a limited edition Birthday Party T-shirt. That's where we come in. Below is the first look at the front of the t-shirt we've designed for the party.

We'll have more party information in the coming weeks. You can also find additional images of the t-shirt design on our Facebook page here.

Hope everyone has a great weekend,

Jeff & Kelly

Hey Tina,

Thanks for the kind words regarding the Jake shirt. We're beyond honored to have designed something for Jake the Alligator Man. It's not every day you get to work with someone who's been in the Weekly World News:-)

Crafty Wonderland went well - thanks!

You have a unique website and blog. I tend to collect the same stuff you have. I once had a garage and closets full of it. Lost some of it in Hurricane Ivan (and some of it was floating in plastic tubs.) Reluctantly I put most of what I had left on eBay).

Wendy & Jake - Thanks for the well wishes! We had a great time at the Roundup - we just wish the weather would have been a little better. Hard to believe it was almost 100 degrees last year.

billco - I'm really sorry to hear about you losing your collection to Ivan. Hopefully at some point you can begin putting another collection together. Have a good week!
