When we opened our doors under the name ModSock in 2011, it was hard for some people to imagine that we would survive as a business, let alone become one of the largest online sock retailers on the internet and a destination shopping spot in Bellingham, Washington for tourists and locals alike. We often encountered the question, “Do you just sell socks?” Yup, just socks — and socks have taken us far.
Stretching Our Legs
During our first few years, we quickly became a beloved sock shop with a massive inventory of fun socks for adults and kids of all ages.
By 2013 it was time to start truly expanding our reach — and so our website was born. We now ship socks to more than 30 countries around the world, bringing joy to customers who can't visit our store in person.
The same year, we launched an in-house sock brand ModSocks with the help of a successful Kickstarter campaign. Beginning with just 12 designs created by owner Urania Shaklee, this separate sister business now boasts more than 250 whimsical and creative styles sold in our store and right here at CrazySocks.com.
