Here’s your chance to not just read about Seal Beach history, but also to wear it or give it as a Xmas gift.
After years of paying out on my own pocket to maintain this blog, I’ve finally decided to monetize the operation, as those sly marketing folk like to say. I’ve set up an online store at CafePress offering apparel, stationery, gifts, and other Seal Beach historical merchandise for sale. Your purchases will help fund further research and future post on this blog.
The first historical Seal Beach image to be offered in the store is this unique and colorful 1916 City of Seal Beach Letterhead. It evokes the romantic vision the city founders had for our little seaside city that reality never quite managed to match.
Merchandise imprinted with this image is now available. You can purchase City of Seal Beach Letterhead merchandise at the online store by clicking here.
I’ve also added a second vintage image to the store. This is a reproduction a circa 1913-1915 pinback button used to promote changing Bay City’s name to Seal Beach. The name change became official when the city incorporated in October 1915.
Merchandise imprinted with this image are now available. You can purchase Splash Me At Seal Beach merchandise at the online store by clicking here.
I’ll add more vintage Seal Beach merchandise lines if the response to these two are strong enough.
I’ve shared below a preview of some of the This Date In Seal Beach products being sold at the store. More items are available at the online store. Thanks.
