CHARLOTTE CENTRIC BOTTLE OPENERS, MAGNETS, AND PINS
Charlotte is a growing, mid-sized city seeking a unique identity of its own. In answering that challenge, these Charlotte-centric bottle openers, magnets, and pins feature tongue-in-cheek humor and a simplistic graphic approach. Each design contains an inside joke about this bustling town: from dispelling that myth that no one here is from Charlotte, to shaming the recent urban center strip mall (the Epicentre), to mocking our oldfashioned, outdated nickname, “Queen City”. Bottle Openers (2.25”) - Come equipped with a heavy duty aluminum backing for opening favorite bottled beverages in style. $3.00 Magnets (2.25”) - The perfect accessory for your fridge. $3.00 Pins (1.25”) - These little guys make a great statement on a blazer or backpack. $1.00
