Los Angeles Coroner Merchandise

This is the list of stuff offered by the Los Angeles County Coroner's office. The profits from this go towards the Youthful Drunk Driving Program. "This program is set up to allow young people, from the ages of 16 to 21, to visit the coroner's facility as a term of probation." blah blah, woof woof. Anyhow, here is a list of stuff they offer. I'd suggest writing to get a brochure, since they don't offer everything in the same color.

T-shirt $15.00
front -- coroner seal, front pocket area (no pocket, though) back -- skeleton dressed like sherlock holmes, words "Los Angeles County" on top, "Department of Coroner" written sideways to left.
Beach Towel $20.00
white -- 35x60 color -- 35x65 chalk outline of body, words "Los Angeles County Department of Coroner" written lengthwise
Mugs $10.00
15 oz ceramic mugs, in black or white, same logo as back of t-shirt
Tote Bag w/zipper $15.00
canvas bag (well made-I have one), 18.5x12x5
Jumbo Tote Bag $15.00
20x15x5 (both bags have same logo as back of t-shirt)
Toe Tag Key Chain $5.00
blue plastic card, inscribed "this could be you...please don't drink and drive.) They can put names on them, too. Described in brochure as "authentic".
Lapel Pin $5.00
"authentic" Department of Coroner lapel pin, 7/8"
Baseball Cap $12.00
chalk body outline on front, "coroner" on back
Wall Clock $25.00
chalk body design logo on black with white background 9x11
Wristwatch $26.00
black leather band, chalk outline on white background
Pen $12.00
coroner seal on top, inscribed with "Los Angeles County Coroner", black with gold lining
Mug $10.00
black, 12oz ceramic, gold coroner seal on both sides
Travel Mug $10.00
black, 14oz hot/cold, body outline in white on both sides
Sweatshirt $22.00
chalk outline on back, coroner seal front pocket area
Boxer Shorts $14.00
one back patch pocket, continuous body logo design and word "undertakers" on left leg, white with black imprint

I have not seen the stuff from the baseball cap down. I have everything above that, though. I use it all, except for the toe tag and the lapel pin. Most of the stuff comes in black, though not all, and many of the items have a variety of choices. The colors and codes can be found in the brochure, or you can e-mail me for them. I have a sweatshirt that they put out (in black), and it looks really, really cool.

Anyhow, here's the address:

Skeletons in the Closet
1104 N. Mission Road
Los Angeles, CA 90033
