We here at e.g. get excited every time a new shipment comes in. Its hard not to when you’re as proud of the product you sell as we are! One of our favorite shipments is socks. Yep. Socks. But seriously amazing socks, the most comfortable socks you’ve ever worn. We can barely keep them in stock because our customers love them just as much as we do!
They come to our store from Fort Payne, Alabama, formerly the “sock capital of the world”—so you can imagine that this 25 year old family-owned business is pretty serious about their socks. They control the entire process, from design to manufacture to packaging and shipment. They ensure that their products are environmentally conscious (all organically produced cotton), made in the United States, and to top it all off, their CEO, Gina Locklear, is a lady (S/O to all the lady bosses out there!).
We’ve carried their products for a few seasons now, and the general reaction has been overwhelmingly positive. So positive that we’re almost sold out of our spring shipment (get them while you can, folks)! Our e.g. family wasn’t the only one to notice how great these socks are, though. Recently, a friend of the store sent us a picture of a page in Martha Stewart magazine announcing the winners of the 2015 Martha Stewart American Made contest. Little River Sock Mill (and CEO Gina Locklear) were winners! Totally not surprising because their products are incredible! Congratulations Little River Sock Mill! We look forward to many more shipments from you!
