#30DaysofPDXMakers Feature Sock It to Me
We love socks and we love Sock It to Me socks even more. Funky, fresh, and lots of fun options. I found this company during my time running my box subscription company and have since been a follower and often shopper at the aisle at New Seasons. We gathered up some fun details about Carrie's story and are sharing it on our site. We hope you enjoy it. We're always inspired by local, small companies that have launch themselves in successful brands. We love offering up some more love in the coming weeks.
Sock It to Me sells fun, funky socks: true!
socks with dinosaurs, cupcakes, ninjas, mustaches, unicorns and other things magical. Here at Sock It to Me, we continually strive to make quality products with unique and original designs, while providing value and top-notch customer service. We honestly love our socks and hope you do too!
The story really began for Carrie at age 26. Excerpt from her story of starting her company online. When my search for a “real job” came up short. With a good job history, college degree, and earnest motivation, I found it hard to believe that I couldn't find work—let alone, work that was satisfying. It was then I remembered the amazing socks I had fallen in love with in Korea while teaching English there years earlier. They were thick, stretchy, colorful, and affordable. They were unique, and I really liked them. I thought people back in the States might also like them. So after a good year and a half of deliberation, I decided to go forward, and—taaa daaa!—Sock it to Me was born in 2004. Now we operate as a small (but awesome and way talented) team of around 20 employees.
