The Archer & Cove apparel line, based out of Mississippi, recently announced that they have partnered with the Destin History & Fishing Museum for a limited edition T-shirt to benefit the museum and its efforts.

The limited edition, special design “Grouper” shirt will be sold for $28 plus tax and can be found for sale at the museum and online at ArcherandCove.com through Nov. 1. The shirts will also be on sale throughout the month of October in honor and celebration of the Destin Fishing Rodeo.

Founded in 2014 by owner Rosanne Hodges, the Archer & Cove brand has quickly grown, with the apparel line offering men’s and women’s T-shirts, tanks, hats, yoga/jogger pants, sweatshirts and decals. The brand’s products are offered throughout select specialty boutiques and outfitter stores in Mississippi, Arkansas, Alabama and, now, Florida. Most of the apparel runs $28 - $40 per piece.

“We are so pleased to partner with the museum by designing this one of a kind, limited edition T-shirt,” said Hodges. "We are very passionate about helping the communities who have also embraced our brand and thought this was the perfect fit to give back to Destin and the Emerald Coast area.”

The Destin History & Fishing Museum is a 501 C-3 non-profit that opened in 2005 and is committed to educating the community and visitors alike about the rich history of Destin as the World’s Luckiest Little Fishing Village. Run by a board of directors, the museum is a tourist destination and key historical repository for the Destin area. The exhibits present the history of Destin and journey from a small fishing village to a major tourist attraction.

“We are thrilled for this opportunity to work with the Archer & Cove brand,” said Kathy Marler Blue, executive director of the Destin History & Fishing Museum. “This limited edition design is a one of a kind opportunity for us and we look forward to raising much needed funds for the museum.”
