Hourglass Holiday Party/Sample Sale and Clothing Exchange!

Are you in the Seattle area? Great!

Join us for a very special holiday party/sample sale and clothing exchange!

Here are the details:

Saturday, December 6th

Clothing exchange: 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Party/sample sale: 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.

1807 NW Dock Place
Seattle, WA 98107

(there’s a new parking lot on 49th between 15th and 17th!)

Stop by our Ballard studio to try on some seriously gorgeous shoes and meet the amazing artists who created them…plus, new this year: clothes!

We hosted a small clothing exchange for our artists a few months back, and it was so much fun that we decided to open it up to everyone! The idea is simple: bring a bag (or two, or three) of clothing you no longer want, and leave with a new (to you!) wardrobe.

We’ll also have mulled wine and cider, appetizers, and a ridiculously good sale on a big selection of your favorite Hourglass shoes.

There will also be special insider gift certificates available if you’re checking a lucky shoe lover off your list…OR shop for yourself and pick up the perfect finishing touch to your holiday outfit.

Join us!

A few weeks ago, we were interviewed by the local PBS affiliate, KCTS, as a part of their Makers series. What an honor!

Thank you to Vicki and everyone else involved!

You say business, I say busyness

Whew! We have been BUSY lately! 

Our new website design and our partnership with Dansko are part of the reason our phone is ringing off the hook. It also has to do with heading into fall–flip-flops are fading out, and people just want to dress up more. Plus, fall weddings are getting quite popular!

And then, there was this awesome segment on KING5 News last night, which featured our new 2014 Edition 12th Woman design, and pretty much blew up our website in the process.

It’s been a great, sunny Seattle summer, and we can’t wait to see what fall has to offer!
