An Open Letter

Dear Sock Monkey,

Whenever I look at you, I know that you are my friend. It makes me so happy when you smile at me from your brightly colored home on my wallet.

I'm not the only one who loves you dear Monkey. Our customers can't get enough of you. They call, email, and visit us to make new monkey friends.

Why, just the other day, a Seattle woman came in to whisk some of your Monkey pals away to two girls in Serbia.

You are an international sensation Sock Monkey. I'm so glad you are my friend, right there in my purse, waiting to say 'Hello,' when I need a little cheer.

Oh how I love my Sock Monkey snap coin purses! They are so silly and fun and I get lots of comments on them from people in stores. Long live Sock Monkey (& Laura Bee too!)

Laura, I so love your blog. And I remember getting rid of my sock monkey when we cleaned out the house I grew up in. A sad day that was, but pictures of your happy wallets make me smile.

Did you know that your favorite Project Runway guy has most recently served espresso from West Seattle (Hotwire)? Our little hometown claim to fame here on the peninsula...

Are those Reeses Pieces and are you sharing them?
