Almost a year ago, Niq mentioned our growing social media team. Since then, Sock Dreams has expanded into a whole bunch of new fun social media. We’re lucky, because all of us get to work in the styles that we like most (and talk about socks!) I know that I do not have the brain to use Pinterest, so I’m glad we have other Dreamers who do! Each platform or method we use to get the sock word out to you has a different twist, so I figured it was about time I properly introduced them. And! There are a lot of fun photos scattered through our social networks that you don’t get to see unless you’re following us there.
First up is Facebook! Our Facebook page is the oldest of our social network presences. We update almost every day info on new items, upcoming items and local events we’re involved in. We also post lots of lifestyle images of Dreamers rocking socks with their everyday outfits, like this one of the Dreamy Bamboo OTKs!
Nothing makes our day more than when folks post on our wall with how they’re rocking their socks too! Scroll down on our Facebook photo page and you can check our all our awesome customer photos.
What you might like most about friending us on Facebook is that it is often the first place you tend to hear about sales (we don’t often have sales, but when we do, they’re often Facebook-specific). And if you’re a Portland local you can follow our Shop on Facebook too!
The next social media platform we turned our toes to is Twitter. If you want your sock news in quick bits, the Sock Dreams Twitter feed is the way to go. Links to new items, restocked styles, sock-tastic awesomeness and some of the sweetest Dreamers cheering on your socks. And just like our Facebook, our Shop has a locals-specific Twitter too!
And we’re big fans of FollowFriday, so remember:
After having such a great time reaching out to all you wonderful folks on Facebook and Twitter, we decided to take the Tumblr plunge. The Sock Dreams Tumblr is an endless parade of awesome imagery and inspiration.
Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr might be how Sock Dreams started getting into social media but we’ve added even more sock-ariffic goodness to your internet, join us after the jump to see where else you can find us on the web!

Why? …Last year was a great success and this year it’s looking even better! We’ll have music, singing pirates from PDX Yar, theatrical entertainment, face painting, and Style Ink will be there to do wild makeup and hair for guests.

* Register your costume at the event on 10/22/10 from 6p – 7:30p. …Kids under 13 must have permission from a legal guardian to participate.
* When you register we’ll take a photo and from these the Sock Dreams staff will choose their favorite costume and declare the winner at 8pm 10/22/10.

* Costumes must be self contained. Connections to electrical sockets will not be available.
* It’s a family costume contest. Keep it fun and PG-Rated.
It’s official: Our brick & mortar shop will be open on Mondays through the winter! Now Portland locals (and sock-savvy visitors to our fair city) can start their week on the right foot. The hours remain the same, 11am to 6pm, but now the doors are open seven days a week!
Non-locals and folks who need socks at 3am (it’s always sock shopping time somewhere!) we are of course always open online, 24 hours a day.
You’re all invited!!!
Where: Sock Dreams shop in Sellwood
8005 SE 13th Avenue, Portland, OR 97202
When: Friday October 23rd, 6-8 pm
Since it is nearly Halloween we’re encouraging everyone to come dressed up with a chance to win a $100 Sock Dreams Gift Certificate for the best costume.* We’ll be offering 25% off all sales during the party (discount good only at the event).
There will be treats & goodies thanks to our neighbors at:
The Ugly Mug & Grand Central Bakery.
This will be a family friendly event with entertainment: a girl who is a stilt walker, hula hooper, fire dancer and can swallow fire. Banjo, trumpet, and other live music.
So far today is much like any other Sunday…
I’m editing images shot earlier in the week and will soon head over to our warehouse to help pull the first batch of orders for the day. Our store on Powell will open at 11 am just like it has nearly every day since April 1st 2008.
But today, unlike other days, when the last of the shoppers have left the building we’ll gather up all the socks & pretty things and our neighbors at the All American Moving Co will transport all of our shop furniture & boxes of socks over to Sellwood and into our new shop location.
