Funky Sock Exchange



A friend of mine sent a "Funky Sock Exchange" letter to me a few weeks ago. It was reminscent of the "Dish Towel Exchange" many of our mothers did during the 70's and 80's. Similar to a chain letter without the threat of bad luck, death, or involving money of any sort, this exchange, should someone decide to participate (optional, of course) would yield 36 pairs of funky socks from all over the place within a few weeks.

So far I've received two pairs of socks - one from San Antonio, Texas and another from San Ramon, California. This is the first time I've ever participated in one of these and it's been surprisingly fun!

If you'd like to participate, please send me an email at jeanette337 at Please keep in mind that funky is meant to mean "cool" or "stylish", not foul in odor.


1. offensively malodorous; "a foul odor"; "the kitchen smelled really funky" [syn: fetid]
2. (of jazz) having the soulful feeling of early blues
3. stylish and modern in an unconventional way; "she likes funky clothes"; "we did it all in black and white in a very funky sixties style"
4. in a state of cowardly fright

This is how the text of the letter will read -

Funky Sock Exchange

Dear ____________,

This is not a chain letter – it is a funky sock exchange. Please send a unique pair of ladies’ sized socks to the person whose name is listed in the #1 space below. Then, move my name to the #1 position and put your name in the #2 position. Only my name and your name should be on the list when you send out the letter. I have enclosed a blank letter for your copying. Please fill the form out and send it to 6 friends.

Remember, this is just for fun! If you cannot do this within 5 days, please let me know so that it will be fair to all those participating. A manila envelope should mail the socks nicely. You should receive 36 pairs of socks for the price of one and it is fun to see the different places your socks will come from. Seldom does anyone drop out because we can all use funky socks!

The turn around time is extremely fast, because there are only 2 names on the list. You should be receiving funky socks within about two weeks. Have fun, but remember to contact me if you don’t participate.


Name #1

City, State Zip

Name #2
