Taryn's Wreckreation Guide: How To Step Up Your Sock Game

June 12, 2017

One thing you might not know about me and the people I work with is our collective obsession with novelty socks. We think boring socks are a waste of socks. Almost every single day, we take the time to gather and show off what pair we are wearing. Sometimes they're eclectic argyle socks. Sometimes they're wildly inappropriate. Sometimes they pay homage to our dogs at home. But one thing is for sure - our sock game is ALWAYS strong. 


To up your sock game, there are a few places you should know about. And even if you live nowhere near these sock hot spots, you can always shop online and be the king of socks in no time!


1. ModSock - Bellingham, WA: Located in the heart of downtown Bellingham, Mod Sock literally has something for everyone! Whatever you're into, it's there. Food. Dogs. Beer. Inappropriate stuff. You can pick up both of these bad boys there...

3. Sock It To Me - Portland, OR: Two things I LOVE about Sock It To Me... 1. You can sign up for a sock subscription and get new pairs delivered monthly! 2. They run an annual Design-A-Sock Contest! On top of that, they have more than 400 styles you can browse online!

THEY'LL NEVER SEE IT COMING! Which is what makes it a surprise. Every dad, grad, bride, & groom will love our new subscription box and/or a gift certificate. Link in bio. #SockItToMeMonthly #NoveltySocks #SockSubscription #Subscription #GiftIdeas #WeddingGifts
