Purcellville Blog: Local T-shirt business taps into beer and wine market

A Purcellville couple has taken their mutual interest in local wineries and breweries and created a T-shirt business to help promote them.

Bill and Kristy Reynolds formed CrafTshirts in 2015 after Bill developed a T-shirt design and pitched it to Loudoun's breweries.

“Bill loves T-shirts,” Kristy said. “We thought, how cool would it be to have all their names on one shirt,” she said, referring to Loudoun's breweries and wineries.

They asked winery and brewery owners for permission to use their logos on the shirts, and they have all been “very supportive,” Kristy said.

So far, it has been a big hit – they have sold over 5,000 shirts.

The Reynolds usually set up shop at festivals, as well as wineries and breweries on the weekends. Shirts sell for $25 each and there are tank tops for $20. Shirts are also available for purchase at places such as Jack's Run in Purcellville, Loudoun Brewing in Leesburg and Old Ox Brewery in Ashburn.

The business is not limited to Loudoun - their concept has now spread throughout northern Virginia, Fredericksburg, Richmond, Charlottesville and Frederick, Md. They will also design shirts for special causes and events as well.
