Skulbone® T-shirts - Chillingly Cool

If you're a goth or a biker and have never heard of Skulbone® T-shirts you're in for a treat. Skulbone is a sub-division of the popular t-shirt brand The Mountain®.

Skulbone® t-shirts are dark, macabre designs that are just a bit too dark for the usually stunning and beautiful designs often associated with The Mountain® t-shirts.

At Tam's Treasures Online you can find Skulbone® t-shirts in a host of bone chilling designs including skulls, witches, ghosts and zombies. You don't have to be a biker to enjoy a grim reaper riding his hog down the highways of hell.

For those who don't have an appetite for blood and gore there are naughty but nice fairies, witches and dragon designs as well as fun glow in the dark ghost designs that are big sellers.

These amazing t-shirts are earth-friendly hand-dyed with water based inks and the vividly detailed designs are dyed right into the garment so they'll last for years to come.

Giving gifts in style the earth-friendly way!

With all the gift giving occasions like weddings, anniversaries, birthdays and christenings you're bound to need a present that will impress the recipient.

Almost as important as the gift itself is the wrapping. Throwing a bit of wrapping paper and some tape on a wedding or birthday present will come across like you really couldn't be bothered and it was a half hearted attempt.

Making the exterior of the contents looking as impressive doesn't have to pain staking nor does it have to be a strain on the environment.

Tree Free® have produced bag ensembles that have literally taken away all the hard work and include everything you need except the gift.

These beautiful earth-friendly sets consist of a bag, tissue paper and a matching gift card. All made from sustainable resources such as recycled paper, kenaf plants, bamboo and sugarcane bygasse. Now allowing eco-conscious shoppers to wrap presents without feeling guilty. Once more they can be recycled and reused again.

With beautiful designs such as angel, fairy, dragon , unicorn, fantasy and wildlife there's bags suitable for all occasions and tastes. So if you're looking for beautiful wrapping for your next special occasion check out our Tree Free Gift Bags.

Angel Gifts & Collectibles

When we first started our site we sold predominately fairy gifts, however over the course of time we found our angel gifts and collectibles surpassed the fairy trend. You don't need to be spiritual to believe in angels or in their guarding nature.

Some of our customers use our amazing angels and angel worry stones to help focus and channel on positive things. Those that believe in the universal laws of reciprocation where as being happy, being at peace, channeling good feelings sends out good vibes into the universe and bounces back with good things happening in their lives. This type of thinking can be seen in cases of people being lucky. People that are lucky seem to win lotteries, get good parking spots, have good things happen.

Customers use some of our angel products to help remind them to stay positive, and allow positive things to happen in their lives.

Whether you believe in this or not, it's a great way to live your life. There can never be too many positive people in the world, and if this how change can come about we're all for it!

So wear one of our angel t-shirts, send a friend an angel greeting card, use angel charms on your phone, or carry an angel ornament in your purse. We have plenty of angels to go around.

Our new site design

We recently had a major overhaul on our website trying to break away from the fairy image as we've made a name for our site selling fairy inspired gifts.

Our new design showcases our broad range of t-shirts by The Mountain® some of our popular designs include wolf t-shirts, tiger t-shirts, and Native American t-shirts. We wanted to appeal to a larger audience including men and felt the fairy probably hindered that a bit.

So now we're happy and exceptionally proud of the way our new sign looks and how easy it is to navigate through the pages. We still have some great fairy gifts like fairy stickers, fairy divas, fairy greeting cards and fairy key rings. However, we've not got a selection of gifts that cover wildlife and a broader range of giftware.

Earth-friendly Giftware

Global warming, and environmental issues have been around for years however; it wasn't until recently that retailers have decided to join the bandwagon and start selling earth-friendly products and giftware.

Whilst I'm pleased that people are becoming more aware of the earth's plight and the need to source environmentally acceptable merchandise, I can't help but think a lot of retailers are just about the profit margins.

When we started selling The Mountain t-shirts, Tree Free Greetings and giftware we made a conscious plan to make sure the products we were selling had little impact on the enviroment and left low carbon footprints.

It's not just about profit for us, it's about showing consumers that earth-friendly giftware doesn't have to be dull, uninspiring gifts recycled from old tyres, plastic and newspaper.

Tree Free greetings produce gift bags, greeting cards and note cards from sugar cane bygasse, sustainable kenaf crops, and fast growing bamboo. Not only are these resources sustainable but the soy based inks they use produce a colour and quality to the prints that match the quality of any top laser printer on the market.

The recycled steel decorative tins that come with Tree Free's earth-friendly note cards is reusable after the cards are gone. The patented window lid doubles as a photo frame and trinket box.

The Mountain t-shirts come in a variety of designs including Native American, Tiger, Wolf, Fairy and Fantasy and those are just a sample of the 500 plus designs available.

The Mountain use 100% cotton (organic when possible) t-shirts and hand-dye them with water based inks. The Mountain products are also Oekotex 100% certified (the highest qualification worldwide). This guarantees their shirts are free of chemicals harmful to your body.

The ethics behind these two companies show their commitment to the enviroment as well as to their employees, the community and the consumer. From start to finish with the manufacturing of these products all platforms are considered. It makes us proud to sell their products and deal with these amazing people.
