History's Never Looked This Good!

Catalina Island Museum

Thanks to Reyn Spooner and Buoys & Gulls, history's never been this much fun or looked this good! Reyn Spooner's new limited edition shirt, Avalon Summer Shores, features familiar Catalina historical images and 10% of the sale proceeds of each shirt sold on the Island will be donated to the Catalina Island Museum.

Reyn Spooner has its origins on Catalina - Tim McCullough, President and CEO of Reyn's and Reyn Spooner, was born on Catalina Island to longtime Avalon residents, Reyn and Deane McCullough.  The following year, Tim's father opened his first men's store, "Reyn's", in Avalon, launching a family-owned retail and manufacturing business that has grown dramatically under Tim's leadership and now claims a 58-year heritage that still pays homage to its earliest roots on Catalina Island.  
Inspired by those roots, Reyn Spooner's newest offering displays images of seaplanes, sportfishing, steamers, and of course, the Casino where the Museum has been located for over 50 years.  Sold on Catalina Island exclusively by Buoys & Gulls, Avalon Summer Shores also features an attractive hangtag sharing a brief summary of the Island's unique and varied history and promoting the Museum's mission to support and preserve it for future generations to enjoy.  "The Museum is grateful for the support of Reyn Spooner and Buoys & Gulls and thrilled with the design of the Avalon Summer Shores shirt, which commemorates so many of the wonderful historic elements of our Island's heritage", said Stacey Otte, Executive Director of the Catalina Island Museum.
