The Cabot Sock Sale [53]

Socks3 The 28th Annual Cabot Sock Sale was held this weekend in Northfield Vermont.

Each year thousands of visitors flock to the Cabot Hosiery Mills factory to pounce on the heavily discounted, high quality, VT-made socks.

Coinciding with the start of Vermont's deer season, the sale was originally billed as a party for "Hunter's Widows."  Nowadays, men, women, teens, kids and even hunters all flock to the sale.

Cabot Hosiery Mills has been in the Cabot family for three generations. They are the only sock company remaining in Vermont and one of the last sock companies in the country.

The sock sale will be continuing the weekend of November 17th and 18th in Northfield Vermont.

eva you did a great job-thanks very much for coming down to Northfield.

Awesome. As always, well done.

I love the sign they have behind the cash registers that says "Nobody has ever outsourced for quality." It sums it up very well.

Eva

Phooey, I want to go back for more socks this weekend but perhaps that is just the SOCK SCRATCH FEVER talking!? Thanks Ric for a great event, the socks feel great!

Good eye Murf! I wish I had gotten that sign in the vlog!
