The Sock It to Me “Behind the Scenes” Series: Take 3!

The star of this week’s “Behind the Scenes” series is our number-crunching, letter-writing, whiz kid on the keyboard – Amber!

 

 

Name: Amber

Position at SITM: Accounting and Computer Guru

Years at SITM: 4

Favorite pair of SITM socks: Purple Haze is my favorite of the month.

Tell us a bit about yourself in less than 120 words: Most people think I’m weird but that’s okay. I embrace it. I am a homebody and like to do crafts, play video games, and harass my dogs Charlie & Nala. I’m doing a late night water aerobics class right now and I think that’s neat. I love sending and receiving mail. I think it’s a dying art and there is nothing like receiving a handwritten letter from a friend far away.

What were you doing before you started working at Sock It to Me? Before I started working at SITM I ran my own online business that sold kawaii Japanese stationery products. Everything was very cute and a lot of the items were totally random. After running my store for nearly 7 years I wasn’t making enough to pay the bills and I got an awesome opportunity to work for Sock It to Me part time. That turned in to full time about a year later and after trying to juggle both I finally decided to close my internet doors in 2011. I have absolutely no regrets.  I picked the winning pony.

One food item you could not live without: Burritos. Wrap anything in a tortilla and it’s better.

Where are you going when the zombie apocalypse happens? I will be meeting up with Carrie at RiteAid. She told me that was where she was going years ago and I thought it was such a great plan I am stealing it.

What sock do you wish SITM had? I wish SITM had every combination of stripes in the universe. I wear striped socks most days and coordinate them with my outfit. I’ve found the pattern ones usually make me feel over the top unless the rest of my outfit is toned down… and well, that usually isn’t the case.

 

 

The Sock It Me “Behind the Scenes” Series: Take 2!

As promised, we’re back with another installment of Sock It to Me’s “Behind the Scene” Series!  This week, we’re featuring Jacob, the one who does it all, the keeper of the organization, and the man responsible for bringing a smile back to our customers’ distraught faces (and, yes, this is his exact face as he fires off all of those customer service emails!)

 

Name: Jacob

Position at SITM: Administrative/Customer Service

Years at SITM: 7+ months

Favorite pair of SITM socks: Monkey Argyle (Mef0039)

Tell us a bit about yourself in less than 120 words: I have always been good at fixing things, whether it was someone’s back pain or a leaky roof. Now I fix things here and the end result is somebody gets the socks they want. I am proud to say that when that happens everyone wins.

What were you doing before you started working at Sock It to me? Massage Therapist/Handyman

One food item you could not live without: Bacon!!!!!

Where are you going when the zombie apocalypse happens?  First I would exclaim….”I knew it!”  Then I would head to Bi-Mart with Carrie.

What sock do you wish SITM had? Anti-gravity socks!

Bi-Mart, huh?  Interesting choice.  We think Kisa might stand a better chance with her katana.  So, Sock It to Me fans, where are YOU headed when the zombie apocalypse finally happens?!

 

 

The Sock It to Me “Behind the Scenes” Series

Ever wandered by a company and wondered “Who works there?!” (Like who gets to fly around those remote-controlled helicopters in the mall all day.  That’s hardly work.)  Well, now it’s time to get to know the people behind those crazy Sock It to Me socks!

Now introducing our shipping connoisseur, our fantasy fanatic, the one who promises no loyalty when zombies roam the earth… Kisa!

 

Name:  Kisa

Position at SITM: Shipping Manager

Years at SITM: 3

Favorite pair of SITM socks: Giraffe (F0118)

Tell us a bit about yourself in less than 120 words: I’m a lifelong nerd. I like sci-fi and fantasy. I like reading, writing, video games, and role-playing games.  I also like karaoke and have been known to practice a little muay thai kick boxing from time to time.

What were you doing before you started working at Sock It to Me? Working as a production assistant on films and TV shows around Portland.  It’s not as fun as you might think.  Working 15 hour days, on my feet the whole time and looking for new work every three to six months got tiring.  Sock It to Me is a much cooler job.

One food item you could not live without: Red meat.  I don’t want to offend any vegetarians out there, but there are times I just crave flesh and blood.

Where are you going when the zombie apocalypse happens?  Honestly, I am completely unprepared for an apocalypse.  I suspect I’ll die in the first wave, in which case, I’ll be stumbling around looking for some juicy brains.  If I do manage to survive, I’ll make my way to a cutlery shop and try to get my hands on a katana.  Guns will become useless real quick without a steady supply of ammo.  I’ll need a weapon that can sever heads.

What sock do you wish SITM had? I’m a sucker for mythical creatures and it seems we are lacking dragons.  It is an oversight I am sure will soon be corrected.

Tune in next week to meet another member of our amazing crew!!!

We still can’t get over Sock It to Me’s BIG moment!  Thanks a lot, TODAY Show!!!  Can’t wait to see where our awesome socks show up next!

Breast Cancer Awareness

The temperatures are gradually dropping,  and October is finally here!  We LOVE the fall colors – brown, gold, orange, red, and PINK!  Everywhere we turn, pink is covering products of all kinds – office supplies, clothes, makeup, food, etc.  It’s everywhere, and we just can’t get enough of it!  So, in honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness month, Sock It to me is joining the pink parade and teaming up with the National Breast Cancer Coalition to help find a cure!

Since its humble beginnings, Sock It to Me has packed a powerful punch, fighting its way from the weekend craft fair into the main ring at many retail stores across the country.  Now, it’s time to use that force against our biggest competitor yet – breast cancer, which claims the lives of tens of thousands of men and women across the country each year.

For the entire month of October 2011, YOU can choose from eleven awesome, pink sock designs, and Sock It to Me will donate 50% of the sales price to the National Breast Cancer Coalition fund.  There is no maximum contribution, so let’s “wow” NBCC with our Sock It to Me love and make a HUGE donation!

Our eleven pink styles are PERFECT for Breast Cancer fundraisers, including walks, runs, and bike rides, as well as everyday wear! Show off your matching team SITM’s in a local walk-a-thon or sport yours solo at a bike race! Whether you favor the spunky Pink Mustaches, the amusing Trifecta of All That is Awesome, or the classic Pink & Red stripes, you’ll be teaming up with Sock It to Me and the National Breast Cancer Coalition to knock the socks off breast cancer!

Check out our pink page on www.SockItToMe.com, and choose your own PINK SOCKS! Also, if you already own some PINK Sock It to Me’s – please email us photos of you donning your favorite PINK pair & outfit in support of Breast Cancer Awareness! We will be sending a special package with a few FREE Sock It to Me’s to the person who is best dressed for BCA!
