Introducing the "Big Business is Bad Business Tee" – A Nostalgic Tribute to Block Island's Roots!


Do you remember the days when life was simpler on Block Island? When checks were calculated on old adding machines, and handwritten ledgers kept the Surf Hotel's history alive? Explore Block Island invites you to celebrate the island's rich heritage and rally against the tide of change with our "Big Business is Bad Business Tee."


🧮 **Adding Machine Magic**: This tee showcases the vintage charm of an old adding machine, a symbol of the island's small-town simplicity and historic allure. It's a nod to the days when businesses ran on handwritten receipts and personal touches.


🏨 **Changing Landscape**: We understand the concerns about the recent changes on Block Island. The Surf Hotel, once a local gem, is now in the hands of an out-of-state corporation.  Champlain's has followed suit. Iconic establishments like Finn's and Bethany's are gone, and others like Old Island Pub and Club Soda are up for sale. It's a testament to the encroachment of big business on our beloved island.


🌳 **Preserving Paradise**: At Explore Block Island, we share your passion for preserving the island's unique charm and natural beauty. We stand against overdevelopment and soulless corporate takeovers. Together, we can work to ensure that Block Island remains a vibrant community and a haven for wildlife.


🏝️ **Island Oasis**: Block Island's allure lies in its unspoiled landscapes, and we're committed to keeping it that way. By wearing the "Big Business is Bad Business Tee," you're making a statement in defense of our island's character, its people, and its wildlife.


🌟 **Join the Cause**: Your support makes a difference. By wearing this tee, you're joining a community that values the island's history, its small businesses, and its natural wonders. Together, we can make sure that Block Island remains the beautiful, vibrant, and unique place we all love.


The "Big Business is Bad Business Tee" is more than just a piece of clothing; it's a symbol of our commitment to preserving Block Island's legacy. Join us in the fight to protect this island's heart and soul from the grasp of corporate giants. Wear it proudly, and let the world know that we're here to preserve the past while embracing the future.
