Where to Buy a UNC Garter Set?

Where can I find a garter set that is UNC (Chapel Hill) themed?  I've looked on Franklin St. but I must not be looking in the right places.  Surely I can't be the only crazy tar heel fan who wants a UNC Garter on for my big day... :-) 

Edit: I would prefer to look at the garter set in person, and since UNC is an NCAA-affiliated school, it would make me feel good if the product was "officially licensed" by the NCAA because it's being sold in a retail store... otherwise it's just bootlegging the UNC name for profit.

    Check out Hallmark stores. I've seen some there before.

    Thanks!  I'll check them out next time I go to the mall!  Didn't even think about Hallmark.

    Yeah, they may or may not have them, but I swear I've seen them before. If they don't have any, they might have a better suggestion as to who might.

    I found someone on Etsy who hand-makes them from *licensed* materials, or at least that what is posted.  I may explore that option.  Just don't want to buy it from someone bootlegging the school name... I guess I'm just weird like that :-)

    Thanks!

    I've seen them in student stores before on campus. If you have time and are in the area, you should be able to pop in and find them in the back half of the store not to far from the t-shirts - I plan on going there to pick up mine soon :).

    oh - I work in Chapel Hill, just in town, not on campus.  I will have to stop by student stores one day soon!  thanks, laurenes!

    I work at UNC and tried to find one in Student Stores many times to no avail.  I ended up scrapping getting a garter altogether, but my MOH gave me a beautiful traditional one anyway.  I'd try Sports Fan Attic at Southpoint or Shrunken Head?

    Just wanted to let you know that I found the garter at UNC student stores! Located in back corner on the bottom shelf of the end cap that has all the key chains. When we went they were in a big basket on the bottom shelf, but the girl working in the clothing section said they had been moving around a lot since they are re-arranging the store (as always - one of my bridesmaids used to work there, so I know my way around).

    Awesome, Laurenes!  I'm going today to pick it up... hopefully!! :-)
