Over the past few years, I've been steadily replacing my boring old socks with awesome novelty socks, and I'm proud to say my sock drawer is now 99% garish prints. Modsock, in Bellingham, would surely approve of my quest. This fun, quirky store has a great selection of unique novelty socks — men's, women's, and kids', ankle socks and knee-highs and some lovely printed tights. Most are under $10, and quite a few are from local Northwest companies. I agonized for a long time before settling on a foxes-in-the-forest pair and an Airstream-camper pair, but you can't go wrong no matter which socks you choose.
