Panty Party! And sale-ing turkeys!

A rainbow of undies awaited panty party guests

Hello, dear Reader!

Panty Partying:

The past two weeks have been super busy. Have you felt it too? I hope you are excited for Thanksgiving weekend. A little turkey, some friends or family?

Two of my dearest gal pals, one my sister-in-law in Portland and the other here in Seattle have hosted panty parties for me in the past 10 days!

It's been amazing to get together with girls for drinks (La Vie en Rum Swizzle, the national drink of Bermuda), laughs, and the sale of my favorite unmentionables.

It's not my normal business model and so it was really fun to see everyone dig into the undies. I have loved everyone's reactions to the bright colors and quirky prints. Sigh.  :)

It also felt a little vulnerable, but I've learned a lot too.  I got some great feedback on sizes which I'm still processing, amazing ideas for future prints (think fuzzy letters), and enough warm fuzzies to power the train back up from Portland.

Plus I racked up some sales that will ensure some lovely ladies in women's shelters receive undies later this year or early next (read about that here).  It's a two-fer! If you're in the greater Seattle area and interested in hosting a panty party, let's talk :)

And now on to the Thanksgiving weekend and holiday shipping Public Service Announcement :)


I need a nautical print to insert here... Maybe this summer I'll bust out an anchor or big ship steering wheel?  :)

This is the best Google Images could do for "nautical turkey." Glorious sales over Thanksgiving weekend.  Now, we all know that part of my shtick making undies out of thrifted tshirts is that I'm not a fan of consumption that isn't thoughtful (maybe you've read my manifesto?).  That said, I love giving a thoughtful gift.  And receiving one too.  And with the biggest shopping weekend of the year coming up, I wanted to share some love in case you find yourself shopping and needing some undies, or falling allover yourself to give a pair to share :)
