My Ol' Blues is a small apparel manufacturing company located in Gore Bay on beautiful Manitoulin Island and has been a part of this industry since Nov. 1993.
Design: All our clothing/accessories are designed by founder, Kathryn M. Antonio. She has spent years honing her craft with no credentials in design. It was a fluke!
Manufacture: All designs are then patterned, cut, sewn and packaged in house by a team of talented people.
Wholesale: We have wholesaled from our location to 300+ stores across Canada and border states over the past 21 years - mainly to independent retailers who appreciate Canadian-made products and the ability to order small quantities and short turn-around orders to suit their customer base.
Retail: We have a store front at 7 Phipps St., Gore Bay, which services both our year-round local customers as well as our seasonal visitors and those visiting Manitoulin for the first time.
My Ol' Blues is also well-known for their custom contract work with many corporations, businesses, non-profit organizations, and sports teams. All designs are unique to each group and cannot be duplicated by another group or organization. Current contracts recently completed were for the US Curling Association, Gore Bay Child Care, and Manitoulin Community Living.
