It’s that time again Sock Dreams fans! Time for Dreamer Jen to pack up all the dreamiest socks and hit the road with her lovely assistant, Dreamer Rose, to spread the love of Sock Dreams. We have a very busy con season this year, and nearly ALL the cons we’re attending are out of our home state of Oregon.
To kick off this year’s events, we are attending Planet Comic Con, a comic and pop culture convention that takes place in Kansas City, MO on March 14-16. The main attraction of this event is a big Star Trek: The Next Generation reunion, at a special panel called Trek-Tacular! In honor of their appearance, we have made up some very specially themed stickers that will be available at booth #225.
After Planet Comic Con ends, we’re back for a week and then we’ll be heading up to Seattle, March 28th-30th, for our second year at Emerald City Comic Con. This year we’ll have a bigger booth, more socks, new con-exclusive stickers, AND potentially some new swag… We’ve also been working directly with the creators of ECCC to get them special Emerald City logo socks, which they will be selling at their merch booth. Stop by booth #202 and check us out!
There will be a bunch more events coming up through the rest of spring and into summer. If you live in Kansas City or Seattle, stop by and see us! If you know about a convention in your area that you’d like to see us at, let us know!
We’ve got a new sticker for you, just in time for your Mardi Gras orders! Our lovely logo lady is decked out in her Fat Tuesday finest, with mask, feathers, beads and Green Knees. To receive a sticker in your next order, write “I would like a Mardi Gras sticker please” in your Order Notes.
Unlike many residents of northern climate zones, we in Portland very rarely see snow, so when it actually sticks as it did last week, the city really shuts down. This is partially due to a lack of snow plows or experience driving in snow, but also because it’s such a rare occurrence that we all just want to take the day off & enjoy it!
Here at Sock Dreams we feel a deep responsibility for keeping everyone’s toes warm so we don’t give in and stay home easily — as long as our website is up, customers can keep placing orders so we do our darnedest to keep filling them and sending them off. For this reason we stayed open through three days of [Portland paralyzing] snow, closing only on Sunday after we were hit by freezing rain, making for some extra-dangerous driving (and walking!) conditions.
Don’t worry, though –we still got some work done, despite all the fun! On Monday we managed to get two days worth of packages out the door on schedule!
If you’ve been shopping with us for a while, you might know by now that while we carry socks from a multitude of different suppliers, we also have a few house brands that are made just a little bit dreamier than regular socks. These brands are Dream Stockings and Dreamer Socks, while gift cards and non-sock accessories such as garters and gloves are part of our third and eponymous brand: Sock Dreams!
This week we’re proud to announce the addition of yet another house line: Oops! Socks in the Oops! line are the same great socks that you recognize from Dream Stockings and Dreamer Socks, only these batches were made with some slight flaws! We don’t like wasting things (especially socks), so we’ve decided to sell these since their flaws have no effect on their structural integrity – we do feel that they merit a discount, however!
Oops! O Basics have just a bit of extra texture!
Some of these socks are only flawed in terms of sizing, but because they all have their own errors going on, we do recommend that you read their product information carefully – we want to provide you with savings, not unpleasant surprises!
Currently the line consists of four products, which will likely become a rotating selection as we sell out of flawed batches and get others in. Available now are Oops! Extraordinary Wool Socks, Extraordinary Thigh Highs, O Basics, and Extraordinary Stripes, some of which are perfectly normal except that they were supposed to be Extraordinarily Longer! As the selection is changed out, you’ll be able to find it in the Sale Section, or by simply typing “Oops!” into the search field!
Here at Sock Dreams we believe that even accidents can be happy, and in that spirit we hope that you will enjoy these variations on our dreamiest socks!
We have a sweet treat this upcoming Valentine’s Day! Our logo lady has put on her best Pink Knees and brought all the candy hearts to the party.
If you’d like to receive a sticker in your next order, make sure to put “May I have a Valentine’s Sticker please?” in your order notes. Amounts are limited, so one sticker per order please!
