Contest Love

Here we go again… contest time! As we sort through the pile of submissions from our Annual Design-A-Sock Contest (see below), we are reminded of how much we enjoy the interaction with our customers and neighbors here in Portland.

This is ONE day's stack of contest submissions... and that's just snail mail!

It seems the joy is mutual, when we began to look at the love notes attached with some of the submissions. How blessed to have so many friends out there who tell us “Sock It to Me” is an everyday part of their conversation… and wardrobing. But speaking of love notes, we just have to share this one, because it is so flippin adorable (and kind)…

“I am a huge fan of SITM, and I own over 35 pairs of your socks!  I have worn them in more than ten different countries around the world!” … “I wear them when I climb at my gym 4 days a week. I wore them scuba diving in Thailand. I wear them paragliding in the Alps and the Himalayas and other mountains around the world. I wear them long boarding around Portland. I wear them doing everything!” -Spydermonkee

[Thanks, Spydermonkee! We want pictures!]

We also wanted to share a few of the submissions which have come in. These aren’t necessarily chosen candidates for Grand Prize Winner. But they might be! We just grabbed a few at random (because random is our middle name).

If you’re a Portland area resident, you still have two full days to get some designs our way! (So there is no excuse!) Just send em in via email (designcontest@sockittome.com) or snail mail (Design Contest, 5100 SE Harney #1, Portland, OR 97206), and make sure to review our rules and regs before you begin!
