About Us

Joyofsocks.com began way back in 1998 out of a very small apartment in Boston's North End. A desire to own our first computer was quickly followed by "Let's sell something on it!". Years of Boston retail experience led us to the idea of socks. Success online brought a store in Rockport, MA and then a store in Gloucester, MA. In 2007, we decided to go "internet only" and now operate out of a warehouse in the coastal town of Newburyport, MA.

Thousands of fun and wacky novelty socks and trends have passed through our hands and onto our customers' feet. We love finding new and vibrant patterns to surprise even the most die-hard sock fans. A big "Thank you!" to our loyal customers and a hearty "Welcome!" to our first timers.

And now for a bit of nostalgia. Does anyone remember when Yahoo had a magazine?! For real. They did. Yahoo nailed it when they featured us in 1998. (Mouse over the magazine page to see the cover.)
