2009 Cabot Sock Sale Starts This Weekend 

I just saw someone on Twitter complaining about losing her husband for a month to deer season, and it reminded me that it's time for the "Hunter's Widow" Sock Sale at Cabot Hosiery Mills, makers of Darn Tough socks, in Northfield.

This annual Vermont tradition — now in its 30th year — takes place this Saturday and Sunday, and next. Never been? Check out this video that Eva Sollberger did a couple years ago. I went for the first time several years back, and was astounded by the size of the crowd flocking to this sock factory in the middle of rural Vermont. You may have to wait in line just to get in the door! And you'll definitely have to wait to check out, even though they'll have multiple registers open for business. It's worth the drive at least once, just to see it. Oh yeah, and there are socks on sale, made right here in Vermont.

I would link to more information about the sale on the web, but there isn't any. Not that I can find, anyway. There's an ad in our paper this week, on page 19, so I can tell you that the sock sale is happening Saturday & Sunday, November 14 & 15, and November 21 & 22, from 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. at 364 Whetsone Drive, Northfield. That's right off Route 12.
