So, the lady friend once spent some time doing research on Appledore Island. The tshirt she got when she was there is in need of replacement. Any idea where/how to get an Appledore Island tshirt? I found the group that manages the island but there's no link to buy stuff... Any thoughts?

Not trying to be snarky, but you could, y'know, call them. Their phone number is on the website.

Yes -- call the Shoals Marine Laboratory. A phone call to folks at the Isles of Shoals Steamship Company might also help. I'm sure a local can provide advice.

Scan/copy the image off the old tshirt and print it up online somewhere.

'site:' is very useful in your search fu.
searching for " shirt" i found things like:

Other points of interest for Appledore over-nighters:
* SML buildings are not regularly heated.
* Appledore Island does not have a grocery or pharmacy, but there is a very small “store” in
the main dining hall. The Appledore Store stocks SML t-shirts, sweatshirts, cards, postcards,
marine related books and field guides, stamps and some film.

good luck!

While you're at it, you should pick up t-shirts for Smuttynose and Lunging as well.

Greater Portsmouth Chamber of Commerce may also have some ideas on where to get Appledore/Celia Thaxter related goods.

I am pretty familiar with the Shoals Marine Lab, despite not having actually studied there myself. My suggestion is that you call the Appledore Island lab [(603) 964-9011] and see if there's someone there that would be kind enough to ship a t-shirt to an alum. You're unlikely to be able to order one online anywhere. I have a lot of "marine lab" t-shirts and they are typically small run affairs that you can really only buy at the lab.
