Ridding the World of Ugly Shower Caps

I often joke that with every Retro Revival shower cap I sell, little by little, I'm ridding the world of the ugly, plastic kind (you know, the ones that get all moldy and easily rip).  Three years into business, my plan seems to be working...

(My best Dr. Evil pose)

As of December 24th, I've sewn and sold 1,538 caps.  They adorn the heads of women in all 50 states except South Dakota and New Mexico.

What?!  I'm eyeing you, South Dakota and New Mexico!

I've sold them to women in 20 foreign countries, including such faraway places as Malta, Spain, and Norway.  My biggest foreign buyers are in Canada and Australia.  11 retailers, from Orlando to Los Angeles, and in Canada and Australia, are carrying them.

I'm offering them in over 60 fabric options now.

It's been a super busy holiday selling season.  In November 2011 shower cap sales totaled 59, this November they totalled 107.  In December 2011, I sold 79, and this month 111!

Phew!  I'm very happy and very grateful!  Planning to relax a bit now.

In my shower cap, of course!

I wear mine (I have two that you made me) everyday when I shower.
