Launching our new wholesale line at the International Bowling Expo!

Spare Me 900 Brochure cover

“Vegas, Baby” – Yes indeed, we’re off to Las Vegas to attend the International Bowling Expo!  None of us have ever been to Las Vegas before, much less to a bowling expo, but all indications are this is a great venue to launch our wholesale line.  Reservations? Check.  Brochures?  Check.  Caps and shirts?  Check.  Booties?  Check!  So many details to get ready and out the door… Our display booth has been shipped.  Shoe Covers in every size and fabric have been made and are carefully packed in our carry-ons… we are ready to go!

Day 1 – “Do we have enough brochures?”

The attention from pro shops and bowling center owners at our booth was AMAZING!  Who knew bowling shoe covers could be fun and practical?!?  Everyone who stopped by was very impressed with the quality, manufacturing, fabric choices…  and price.  “These are not your wear and toss bowling shoe covers”, we’d tell everyone.  “These are the bowling shoe covers you collect – and they’re guaranteed!”

Before the day was over, Laurie and Eleanor were interviewed for a press release by BWAA – check out their story about our made in Maine bowling shoe covers on our PRESS page!

Day 2 – “Try them on!”

“They’re baaaack”  More visitors and loads of try-ons today.  The feedback was great and most were impressed by their durability and great fit.  We celebrated our first order… how AWESOME is this?

We deemed the trip a great success and we’re anxious to get home and back to work… we have lots of new ideas to pursue.  Now, if only we can tear Eleanor away from the slots!  ha, ha!

July 2009 – Design starts on our new website;  will include wholesale ordering.

Laurie has been loading electronic fabric samples daily onto our new test website, now in its early design phase.  It’s tiresome, but she’s almost done, thankfully!  We’re adding lots more functionality that will make ordering retail or wholesale so much easier and faster.  Yippee!

Wholesale News! We’re very excited to announce another retailer – Village Bowl in Witchita Falls, Tx.  Be sure to stop in and ask for the original Spare Me 900 Bowling Shoe Covers.

August 2009 – Preparations for Fall and Holiday shopping begins!toes 1

Word of mouth continues to spread… Custom bowling shoe covers orders from new and repeat customers all over the country are keeping us very busy in the workshop.  Thank YOU!

We continue to work on our new website for ordering bowling shoe covers, still aiming to bring it on line by September for Fall and Holiday shopping.

November 2009 – Spare Me Launches New Website; Includes Wholesale Ordering

FINALLY!  We’re soooooooo pleased to be launching our new website – – made in Maine bowling shoe covers.  Save it in your bookmarks or favorites!

We hope you like it and find it easier and faster to use.   It includes larger fabric pictures and sample shoe cover pictures.  The account set-up lets you reorder by simply logging back in.  Let us know what you think!

Next up – Laurie’s new sewing table arrives and the monograms have taken over!  You don’t want to miss this update…
