New Web Stores Launch with a Charitable Message for Travel and Comedy Enthusiasts

De Novo Enterprises, LLC, a Hillsborough, New Jersey-based business, is pleased to announce the launch of two Web-based stores, both powered by CafePress.

The first store, Wanderful Places® Travel Shop, offers travel-inspired t-shirts and sweatshirts displaying a range of domestic and foreign travel destinations that can be customized to suit the wearer. The destinations appear in the form of a signpost reminiscent of those found along walking paths. Shop owner Linda Tancs conceived of the online store as a result of her travels around the globe. “As the daughter of an immigrant, I grew up hearing a foreign language in the home and had the privilege of visiting relatives in Europe as a small child,” explains Ms. Tancs. “A love of travel and foreign cultures was instilled early and inspired me to create a product for others to show their love of travel.”

The second store, Chuckle Shop™, offers humor-related and thought-provoking t-shirts and sweatshirts. Humorous shirt designs range from message t-shirts for dogs to “Test Your Text Message IQ” for parents and their children. Thought-provoking designs include ruminations on topics such as life and spirituality.

The company hopes to advance the mission of two children’s charities by donating a portion of t-shirt sales to them. “I’ve been active with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital since 1984,” says Ms. Tancs. “They’ve been very supportive of my desire to do more good through my company sales. One dollar of each t-shirt sale from Wanderful Places Travel Shop will benefit the Hospital, and one dollar of each t-shirt sale from Chuckle Shop will benefit St. Jude’s Ranch for Children, a residential facility for abused, abandoned and neglected children.”

In addition to merchandising, De Novo Enterprises offers travel consulting services and produces the Travelrific® Travel Show podcast and the Travelrific® blog for travel enthusiasts.
