Our First-Ever Trade Show Sock Exchange!

We flew back from the Pool Tradeshow in Las Vegas a few days ago – and BOY, are our arms tired! (Edit: We apologize about the corny joke – we just, frankly, couldn’t resist.)

Our swanky Sock Lounge!

The Pool Tradeshow is a show that was established in 2001 for the boutique market and leading retailers worldwide – AKA: perfect for us! There were a TON of awesome art and design driven brands for us to oogle at when we weren’t busy telling everyone with at least one ear about Sock It To Me and all of our super fresh styles.

One of the coolest ideas we’ve ever had (yes, we think we are THAT clever) is our idea to host a Sock Exchange during the tradeshow last week! We set up a very chillax Sock Lounge (hence the swanky leather couches in the picture) where people could take a load off, enjoy our displays and trade their boring, stinky socks in for a fresh pair of our funky ones!

Each person who was a part of our sock swap took a picture modeling their new pair and we put it up on our Instagram account. We made collage from a handful of some happy new feet – enjoy!:

Sock It to Me’s SUPER Sock Exchange!

Last month, we showcased at POOL (probably our favorite trade show of the year!), and we had a special little treat for all of the attendees – Sock It to Me’s SUPER Sock Exchange!  We invited all of the press and buyers to join us in the Sock It to Me lounge to exchange their current socks for a funky, NEW pair of Sock It to Me’s!  And, man, did we have an amazing turnout!!!

Remember your first pair of Sock It to Me’s?!  Since we work in a warehouse packed to the brim with socks, we sometimes forget the excitement of getting your first pair!  At the Sock Exchange, it was SO much fun getting to share in the magic of the first time again, and we just had to share with you a few fun pictures of our new-found Sock It to Me fans and their HUGE smiles as they try on their first pair of our crazy socks!

 

 

Probably the best part of our jobs is YOU – our crazy, eclectic group of fans!  We’ve always believed that Sock It to Me had a style for everyone, and looking through all of these pictures from POOL really proved it!
