Behind the scenes here we always like to say “There’s a Spreadshop for everyone!” And our top performing shops in North America for April 2021 prove it!
You may have thought to yourself that only big influencers or youtubers can sell merch. Wrong! Who knows, maybe this will inspire you to go do your thing?! When you’re ready, we’ll keep a free shop open for you.
#1 Pittsburgh Clothing
Pittsburgh Clothing Co. continues to be one of the top performing shops mainly because they know their niche: Pittsburgh Sports! And since sports go year round in the “City of Champions” it seems Pittsburgh Clothing has an un-ending stream of designs to speak to every fan. Another secret to their success? Clearly they are watching the events and live-brainstorming. If a big player makes a move, scores a crazy play, check twitter and they already have a shirt available for what’s going down. That’s some serious “moment merch” right there. Check out Pittsburgh Clothing’s Spreadshop and @PGHClothingCo on Twitter.
#2 Outside Chronicles
Outside Chronicles founder, Mike Radomski is an avid outdoor enthusiast who enjoys climbing mountains, paddling whitewater, fly fishing, and mountain biking. He is a licensed NYS Guide, whitewater raft guide through Zoar Valley, Letchworth State Park, and the Black River. They do a great job of using the embed feature to drop their Spreadshop directly into their website: Outside Chronicles Shop
#3 Earth Day Organization – Official Merchandise
April 22nd was “Earth Day” but we feel like every day should be Earth Day! We’re honored to be the official merchandise shop for the Earth Day Organization. This year’s design was super impressive! You know, we only have one planet. We should keep working together to help heal it. Learn more about climate change, how you can do your part, and get their groovy merch at EarthDay.org
#4 Crazy Sock Lady!
You’ve heard of crazy cat ladies, but have you ever heard of crazy sock ladies?! Kay Litton is a Mom, Wife, Knitter, Crocheter, Knitwear Designer, and Podcaster from Centerville, Ohio. Her “Crazy Sock Lady” podcast spreads her knowledge far and wide as she builds her Crazy Sock Lady army!!! Looks like her virtual “Summer Sock Camp” event was a big hit in her shop in April. Crazy Sock Lady’s Spreadshop and @thecrazysocklady on insta.
Ted… this is what happens when you abandon your state in a major ice storm to take your family on vacation. And he also left his dog behind in the cold too. Uncool. What is cool though is that this shop donates 20% of their earnings to Austin Mutual Aid. They also have stickers. Shop link!
#6 Jacquii with a Cue
We love seeing cultural celebrations expressed through merchandise. Jacquii celebrates her Iñuit community with really colorful designs, that you can see her followers are proud to wear. Her positive vibes seem to emanate through her content and everything she does. Visit her Spreadshop here, and @jackuiiwithacue on insta.
#7 Unapologetically Asian
Another fresh cultural brand, and meteoric rise to success. Unapologetically Asian is clothing to empower all generations of Asian + Asian Americans. They were also there in 2020 to help remind the world that Black Lives Matter! Now, sadly with an increase in attacks against Asians, they’re working around the clock to help #StopAsianHate. Support the movement and grab some of your own empowering gear at unapologeticallyasian.com

Glenn brings analysis and insight to legal issues of the day, drawing from his 30 years as a federal prosecutor, homicide prosecutor and Army JAG.

#12 American Library Association
