is it tacky/illegal to sell tshirts from, say, old navy or some other store with a screen print or iron on that i put on?  i have bought a ton of "hanes-y" tshirts from bands and such, but i wasn't sure about store brands...
thanks for any advice!  i'm new here, so i'm sorry if i ask inappropriate or overly obvious questions.  even librarians get lazy sometimes when it comes to reference questions and just ask the experts.

National brands like Old Navy aren't real keen on having their products altered and resold. You could cut out labels. Thought I'd share a link for a company that sells t-shirts/clothing intended for decoration. May be a better route. There are number of others that do this too.

I'm not sure about the legality of using Old Navy shirts but it may be cheaper to by blank shirts from a wholesale supplier. American Apparel has really stylish shirts: http://www.americanapparel.net/
I think you have to place a really large order with them to get wholesale prices but they may provide you with companies who buy wholesale from them already and then resell the shirts at a slightly higher markup.

Places like AC Moore Michaels and Rag Shop often have sales on T-shirts in a ty of colors.. sometimes you can get them for as cheap as $2/ea for a Hanes. You probably could get cheaper even (Heck the guy hawking I Heart NY Shirts for $2 must be making $$) however, I know people like brand recognition and Hanes=quality in people's heads.

So how would you say this question translates to buying vases, from Ikea that I decorate and sell?  

This is something I've been wondering about for awhile, too.
