Last year we were approached by the newest LGBT publication in town, PQ Monthly, to sponsor an event they were starting called Gay Skate.
This is a regular an event that is meant for LGBT families to come and have fun roller skating in an atmosphere of acceptance. Gay Skate takes place every third Monday at Oaks Park Skate Rink, which is right near our Sock Dreams shop.
One of the best things that’s come out of sponsoring Gay Skate, besides supporting a great event, is it has strengthened our relationship not only with PQ Monthly, but with our Portland Roller Derby Team The Rose City Rollers.
This month instead of doing the usual split ad with RCR, as the Rose City Rollers are called, we are combining our efforts and creating a photo ad in the shared space featuring LGBT skaters in Sock Dreams socks! One of most special pieces of this ad is being able to have one of the young players of the RCR team, The Rosebuds, in the photo shoot, as gay skate is geared toward LGBT youth.
We look forward to working with RCR at our upcoming Portland Pride, where we will have the most epic booth of all times!
We’re so very excited to be collaborating with the hippest Bridal web site on the internet, Offbeat Bride. They are doing a write up on Sock Dreams today and we decided the article should be about all the fabulous bridal party socks that folks get from us every summer, especially when it comes to silly groomsmen socks.
In the spirit of this article, we have decided that we would do a GIVEAWAY in conjunction. All you brides and grooms to be, get out your pens and your box o’ Kleenex, ’cause our giveaway will be an essay on “How I met and chose my bridal party.”
We want to know all the messy, hilarious, tear-jerking ways that you picked the folks who will stand up with you on your special day. Extra points if you have a cross-gendered wedding party, which I was a part of last summer, or something else totally nontraditional.
Our first place winner will receive a $150.00 gift card to Sock Dreams, which can be used to purchase bridal party socks or broken up in any way to use as gifts for your party… or you could just keep it all to yourself.
There is no minimum word count to enter and all entries will be judged by the folks here at Sock Dreams.
To enter, please send your essay to firstname.lastname@example.org by May 23rd 2013, and be sure to include all the important information such as your name and email. The contest ends and will be judged by May 24th, 2013, so the prize will be awarded just in time for all those June weddings.
Good luck! And good life!
The Doggie Dash is the annual fundraiser for the Oregon Humane Society, whom every year rescues a variety of animals and places them in good homes. As some of our fans may know, we have several dogs in our offices here in Portland, and just as many folks in the office who love our furry pals. The Doggie Dash will take place on Saturday May 11th down at the Tom McCall Waterfront Park in Portland; those of you in the Portland area who might want to come down and join the dash. For those of you not in the Portland area, you can still help us meet our Sock Dreams team goal by clicking here and registering for the Sock Dreams team.
Additionally, on Saturday May 11th, the Luna Foundation will be holding Whiskey Fest NW to benefit CASA of Multnomah and Washington Counties. Whiskey Fest will be held at NW 11th and Northrup in the heart of Portland’s Pearl District, where several of the top whiskey makers will be sampling out their best to raise money for children’s advocacy in Portland. We have been asked to vend and represent Sock Dreams by bringing whiskey themed socks, as well as our Sock Dreams brands and our smiling faces. Tickets are going fast, but are still available for this event on the Whiskey Fest NW web site.
Have a great weekend, we hope the sun is shining where you are!!!

When most people think of Oregon, they think of rain; and with good reason. Portland alone gets an average of around 37 inches of rain a year, and often times it feels like we should start gathering animals two by two. There advantage to all the rain is when the sun comes out, Oregon turns into a green paradise. So, the latest news is… SUNSHINE!!!
One of our favorite parts of the warm weather is new shorties, like these sweet Sweet Marcel anklets from last summer!!!
We here at Sock Dreams are suckers for a little shorty sock and luckily Tabbisocks has already starting sending us the most adorable socks ever.
Stay tuned for new styles coming just in time for Spring and Summer.
