It’s that time of year again: convention season!
One of our favorite parts of being in the sock-peddling business is helping people find the right socks for them. As a mostly-online business, we don’t get to do this in person much, especially outside of our rainy Portland area. That’s why we get so excited for convention season! It gives us that much-needed chance to interact with some of our loyal customers in person, as well as giving some of you a chance to see our products up close.
We’ve got a great line-up this year, with some conventions across the country, as well as closer to our home in the Pacific Northwest. If we’re going to be in your area, come say hi!

We’re also debuting three limited-edition stickers at our 2016 booths. You can choose between pink, purple, and aqua. But pick wisely! These stickers are in short supply, and won’t be available anywhere else.
Hello dearest Taurus. It is your time to shine, and the next few weeks are all about you! As amateur astrologers, we Dreamers would like to cater to all of your sock needs and desires. So let’s get right to it, shall we?
The Bull gets a bad rep for being obstinate, and while that may be the case at times, the truth is not quite so simple. When a Bull has a path in mind, they will push through thick and thin to reach their destination as planned. They won’t let anyone or anything deter them, and really, why should you Taurus? Your tenacity has consistently lead you to your goals. When you want something, you make it happen. You, Taurus; you make your own dreams come true, and that is something to be admired.
What others might see as bull-headedness, we like to think of as perseverance. A bull does not give up, even when everyone else has. You are tough as nails Bull, and you deserve socks that can hold true to your stalwart gate. Darn Tough makes just the right kind of socks for you. These are stubbornly sturdy socks Taurus. In fact, the company that makes them (right here in the USA) is so confident in their indomitable design that they have dubbed them “the best possible socks the world has to offer.”
Now Taurus, while we know that you work hard to achieve your goals, we also know that all work and no play makes Taurus a dull bull. So indulge yourself Taurus, we know you’ve earned it! Here is just a smattering of some of the most luxurious socks we have to offer for our industrious Bulls.
You are a sensitive beast Bull, and we know that not any old synthetic fiber will work for you. Luckily, we’ve created a few collections of socks made with natural fibers, from cotton, to wool, to our personal favourite, bamboo! Comfort is of the utmost importance to you Taurus, and it just so happens that comfort is our forte.
For the next few weeks, while The Bull rules the heavens, we’ll be giving our special Taurus themed stickers to anyone who asks. We’ve a limited number, so place your Birthday orders soon Taurus, and don’t forget to ask for a sticker in your order notes when you check out. Happy Birthday Bulls, may your month be steady, soothing, and sumptuous!
Our stickers have become one of our most popular products over the years. Even though we give them out free of charge, we’ve had enough requests to start offering stickers for sale that we decided to give it a try this winter with our Holiday Sticker Pack! Now, we will still be offering out some freebie stickers, but the only way to get the bundle stickers is to buy ‘em.
Right about when we moved to our new Indigo building, we came across StandOut Stickers who print, cut, and package their stickers from their small business in Ohio. We love working with other small businesses who produce made in the USA products, and we soon discovered that SOS makes a mighty fine product. Our stickers are 5″ by 3.25″ custom die-cut on high quality 3 mil vinyl stock, and come coated in a UV gloss laminate finish. That means you can stick our logo on your bumper or on the side of your tree house and it will be fade free for up to 5 years.
We’re starting off our bundles with four vintage Sock Dreams holiday stickers, and one that is brand new to you! Holiday Blues was made in 2012, but never released. Our Holiday Sticker Pack is the only way to get this beautiful logo. Each sticker pack includes one each of the following: Holiday Blues (new for 2015!), Holiday Peppermint Cocoa (2014), Holiday Cookies (2013), Holiday Cranberry Antlers and Holiday Lilacs (2012). They’re perfect to include with gifted socks, or to round out your collection if you missing any holiday logos.
We wish you lots of fun and the warmest toes this winter season, from all of us here at Sock Dreams.
November 11th, 2014
We’re just three weeks in to autumn, but we’re already preparing for the December holidays! Why? Because we’re offering free USPS First Class International Shipping until the end of November! This way our friends overseas can order holiday socks in time for them to travel and make it through customs, while enjoying the same free shipping that US residents enjoy all year round!
Of course, this means we’ve released our winter logo stickers early this year, for inclusion with holiday orders!
Our holiday logo lady is enjoying some hot cocoa while getting cozy in Peppermint Spiral Cotton OTKs to match the candy border, with Long Cuffable Leg Warmers layered over them for even more coziness!
Our winter logo sticker is sporting the same sock and legwarmer combo, only in different colors. She holds a snowglobe, and inside of that snowglobe is another logo lady, who is holding another snowglobe…. perhaps containing another logo lady?
To obtain a sticker of your very own, just leave an order note requesting either a holiday or winter logo sticker when you place your order!
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!
