As you may know from reading Radical Geekery, I’ve been hosting some posts for the greatest sock store ever created, ModSock. They are a local store here in Bellingham, Washington and I fell in love with them the first time I saw them. Recently, the owner Urania Shaklee created a kickstarter to create her very own line of socks. I was so excited that I just had to share, and you can read more about it here. Well, in the few weeks that it was up, they met their goal! Here are a few photos from ArtWalk this last week just a few days before the goal was met.
This is one of my favorite 5-year olds and the daughter of Lari from Lari’s Bookshelf She was posing with the store’s mascot, the life-size sock monkey!
Look at all these fun socks! This is just a small part of the store and there are styles, colors and ideas that will fit you. In fact, I have about 5 or 6 pairs now and I keep going back for more!
The new sock line! They have styles for both men and women and now that their Kickstarter was funded, you will be able to get a pair yourself! Be sure to follow ModSock on Facebook to get the latest and greatest news about this line.
And here is the brains behind the whole store and kickstarter, Urania Shaklee herself. She is such a savvy businesswoman and boon to our downtown and local businesses. To learn more about her, check out this interview I did with her a few years ago.
Congrats again to ModSock for meeting their goal and remember you still have time to enter the ModSock Giveaway. Check it out, you may win some much needed sock money!
