Southern Dialect Celebrated On T- Shirts Sends Sweetea Company Soaring Through Troubled Economy
They are the kind of t-shirts that make people smile. Appropriately named SweeTea, these pigment-dyed, soft-colored t-shirts embody the true unique character of Southern dialect.
Today, SweeTea is sold in retail stores all over the South. But surprisingly enough, owners Karen Hall and Susan Bashford are not Southern. These relocated Yankees actually married Southern boys who often left them in a tizzy trying to understand their conversation. That’s when the light bulb went off. “We called our husbands and said, ‘Start talking’,”
As they approach their third year in business, it’s their friends and family who have helped launch SweeTea to where it is today. From the webmaster daughter to the t-shirt folding friends, Hall and Bashford are truly living the dream. While other occupations battle mounding stress, these two spend days laughing with friends as their new shirt’s are tagged, packed and shipped to some cute main street store in the good ‘ole Southern USA.
