The Man Behind the Shore Redneck Crab Decal Phenomenon Speaks

Posted:
KENT ISLAND, Md.- It's the first thing you see when you walk into many stores on Delmarva.  A rack full of Shore Redneck decals.  They have become so popular it's hard not to walk through a parking lot and see one of those decals.

Two years ago, Spencer White started Shore Redneck after he injured his arm and couldn't work for three months.  His goal was to make a high quality Maryland crab decal

"We came up with Shore Redneck and long story short, we wound up in a gas station with four decals.  Now we have 450 decals, a full line of apparel, jewelry, and wall decals at this point," said White.

It's become such a success, white no longer works as a contractor.  Instead he works 16 hours a day, 7 days a week to keep up with demand for the decals.

And store owners say it has been a massive hit.

"We started seeing the stickers everywhere and the pride associated with it and reached out to him and brought the stuff in and we still get people coming in every day asking if we have the crab stickers," said Dave Tolbert, owner of Island Tackle Outfitters on Kent Island.

For you O's and Ravens fans, there are even decals for you.  But Josh Parker at TL Morris seafood, another Shore Redneck retailer, says keeping them in stock lately has been a struggle.

"We've completely sold out of the baseball stickers and we've only got one of the football ones left so we definitely need to get another order in for those," said Parker.

An order the self proclaimed Shore Redneck is only too happy to provide
