Purple might not be Niq’s favourite colour—but she loves it enough that it tints a lot of what we see here at Sock Dreams, it’s even the shade of our logo’s luscious hair:

The socktopus on the windows at our old headquarters was a brilliant shade of purple:

Our new building ups the ante by being a vibrant shade of indigo purple all over!

and just like that, wishlists were created!
but because we made them from scratch (just like grandma’s cookies) and they are totally new (for us) they do not yet have all the features they will have in the not-so-far-away future.
But they’re here, and as far as we can tell, they totally work.
Sometimes we’re surprised to find out that a style we thought was going to be restocked is actually gone forever. It’s always a bummer and it’s even worse if you’re waiting for something to come back and you don’t know if it is really gone or you just can’t find it.
Worry no longer! We’ve added a feature to our Automated Notifications to help you out.
If you’ve selected to be notified when a style or variety is back in stock, but it turns out that item is no longer available, you’ll receive an email letting you know. We had been doing this ourselves, but now it can happen magically, I mean automatically.
So you’re not too sad, the emails will often even list options from the same categories as the deleted style! If you’ve been waiting for a particular colour or size that is no longer available, the email will list the colours or sizes that you can still order. Totally magic.
We now have zoom capabilities and larger images are literally popping up all over Sock Dreams…
We won’t have all of them done, or even most of them, for some time to come…
But all new items will be zoom-able from now on and I’ll be busily updating images throughout the site in the days, weeks and months ahead (with a little help from Brenna who has also been contributing to the sock images in recent months).
you get a quick zoom that follows your cursor on mouseovers…
and if you click on the small image you get a full image that you can drag anywhere on the page so that you can see the large image and read the description at the same time if you like…
We’ll also be adding more views in the future for those styles that have details you can only see from certain angles, soon to be followed by all those other little tidbits we’ve been working on recently like logins, wishlists and color searches.
