If you haven’t already noticed, there is underlying theme to our holiday giveaways . . . craftsmanship. Most all of the products we’ve picked are meant to last you a lifetime because they are thoughtfully and thoroughly made by hand, with the finest materials – like Quoddy moccasins. Quoddy is one of the few remaining shoe manufacturers in the United States. The family owned and operated company has been hand stitching moccasins and boots since 1909 and it’s no wonder they’ve stayed in business for over a century. They are truly some of the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever owned. Not to mention, they age beautifully. And there is something so special about customizing your own pair of shoes, from the color of the stitching to the style of the sole, and receiving them 4-6 weeks later, knowing that a shoemaker, whose family has been stitching shoes for generations, worked tirelessly to make them just right. So today, we are letting you design your own pair of custom Quoddy moccasins, loafers or boots so that you too, can experience the time honored craftsmanship that makes these shoes so special. Simply leave a comment below, check out their selection online and a winner will be randomly selected on Sunday, December 12th. ***CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED. CONGRATS TO AUDREY P!
