When we're spending hours in our studio color matching, sewing, and finishing our mittens, we often wonder whose hands they're going to warm. Our products are one-of-a-kind, so we hope their unique beauty is discovered by an appreciative owner. We're always thrilled to meet customers at shows and help them choose just the right pair. Often, though, because a portion of our business is also online, we package orders and have no idea if the recipients are happy with what was chosen for them by a friend or loved one.
That's why it's so special when we receive stories about our mittens! Here are a few we're sharing with you so that you can begin to think who you might gift some LucyBlues!
***An office manager of a dentist's office found us online and ordered 30 pairs for her colleagues. She shared how much fun she had pouring over our online gallery and choosing each pair with her coworker's taste in mind.***
***A bride gave each of her attendants a unique, one-of-a-kind gift: a pair of mittens that coordinated with the color scheme of her wedding!**
***Several customers have told us they value our mittens for their superior warmth because they have Raynaud's Syndrome, a circulatory disease that causes cold and numb fingers. It's very important for these folks to keep their hands warm, and we're so pleased to know that our wool exterior/fleece interior design helps.***
***Several school employees have expressed appreciation for our mittens they received as gifts. Their jobs take them outside for recess and before- and after-school crossing patrol duty, and our mittens make a big difference!***
***We have helped many husbands who want to buy mittens for their wives as gifts. They're often terrified to select a pair, though! We coach them through the process by asking them what color coat she wears most often, what her favorite color is, and if her style is artsy or traditional.***
***The international students at the college near our studio have a special friend in our dad. As he befriends many, he learns that some are experiencing winter for the first time. He has bought multiple pairs to help them combat the unfamiliar, Midwest cold. He also purchases them to give as hostess gifts when he travels internationally. LucyBlues are being worn in Serbia, Mongolia, Ecuador, China, Sweden, Wales, and England!***
