Thousand Island Park Collection

Home to The Golden Cleat, Thousand Island Park is located at the head of Wellesley Island on the St. Lawrence River. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, T. I. Park was originally founded as a Methodist camp in 1875, and later evolved into a more secular summer retreat with Victorian Era cottages replacing tents at the turn of the last century. Many families have carried on the summer tradition of gathering at "the River" for generations. 

The Thousand Island Park Collection celebrates the familiar hand-drawn lettering seen around the Park, showcasing it on apparel and bags. Sadly, a devastating fire in August of 2014 claimed the beloved ice cream parlor known as The Guzzle, as well as the fire department, post office, and several other shops and offices. Hand silk-screened onto 100% cotton tee shirts, the generations-old original Guzzle sign evokes cherished memories and nostalgia for ice cream cones and penny candy. 

The Golden Cleat will donate 10% of the profits from items in the Thousand Island Park collection to the Thousand Island Park Foundation.

    For years, this simple hand-painted sign hung outside The Guzzle, the beloved ice cream parlor in historic Thousand Island Park that sadly burned to the ground in August of 2014. The tradition of penny candy and ice cream cones will surely live on, as will the collective memory of an iconic community gathering place.

    Celebrate fond memories with this 100% cotton children's tee featuring the old Guzzle sign, hand silkscreened in a faded black water-based ink. Water based ink is a special type of decorative ink that literally soaks into the fabric instead of sitting on top of it, as plastisol does. Since the fabric isn’t compromised by the ink, garments are left with a super soft and natural feeling print. You literally won’t even feel the print, which is one of the many benefits of water based inks.
