This is the email we received from one of our lovely customers.

Hi there Mongrel sock people,

I spoke to you a few weeks ago at Salamanca Markets about a photo album that someone asked me to pass on to you, showing Mongrel socks in Paris.

Well, the album was in Hobart and I was in Launceston, so it took me a while to sort out the logistics of getting it to you.  It is now posted, so you should have it in the next couple of days.

How it came about that Mongrel socks went to Paris?

My brother-in-law, Eric, used to come over to visit us from WA and has been a fan of Mongrel socks since we gave him a pair for his birthday around 12 years ago.   He usually gets a new pair whenever he comes here.  He is now in Canada, the vice-principal of a school somewhere in the frozen north.

Well, a few years ago he bought a pair and gave them to a young lady named Michelle who was about to travel to Europe.  She is now married to a close friend of Eric.  As you will see by the first photo in the album, he attached a condition to his gift… which led to her taking some interesting pics of the socks conspicuously present on the Eiffel Tower.

Eric passed the album to my wife some time ago, asking that we forward it to you.  Sorry, we did have it sitting around for rather a long time.



These photo's arrived in the mail. In a little album, Yay! So sweet.

And more.....
Have emailed Eric, and will try and contact Michelle. So nice for them to share these with us.
We'll be sure to send them each new pair of Mongrels. We can't wait to see where these one get to, or what they get up to. They'll be going to Perth, WA and Canada as it is.
We've got the nicest customers.
