Happy New Year from Butt Ugly Sweaters

Happy New Year. Let's get carried away

:)  Happy New Year!

We had a great 2013, and are ready to amp it up a bit in 2014.  Let's get carried away in the new year!

No holds barred.

No pulling back the reins.

Let the cream rise to the top.... along with the weirdness, and the 'ugly' sweaters we find, and our imaginations!

Let's get carried away!

Seriously though, the staff here at Butt Ugly Sweaters wishes you and yours a very happy and prosperous new year.

Hey, I thought you said we didn't have to come in today!!!!


Working Together

Working Together we accomplish much

Alone we can do so little.  Together we can do so much. 

Helen Keller

So true in life isn't it?  From every part and everything we do.  From preparing dinner to preparing the fields for planting we can see the good results of working together.  Each of us does a little part and that makes the 'whole' easier on each of us.

If each of us just kept up the sidewalks in front of our own houses and businesses..... if each of us recycled what we used.... if each of us did our own little part, every day and in all ways,... well we'd all be better off.

We look back on the year and we are thankful for all the help we received.  From sourcing ugly sweaters, laundry, cataloging, photographing, creative writing, inventory, shipping, and all those hundreds of trips to the post office.... we thank our staff for working as a unit. 

Together we did so much!

Merry Christmas to each and every one of you this holiday season from the whole staff at Butt Ugly Sweaters.   Our sweaters went far and wide this year.  We love spreading good cheer!

We Ship Priority AND FAST

A customer called and asked us HOW FAST do we ship!

Well, guess what?  We ship fast!  We ship Monday-Saturday!  We use priority mail from the post office and every single order that comes in on one day, goes out priority the very next day!

Right now, the post office is showing delivery times across the country between 2 and 3 days for priority shipments.  So YES!  Your ugly sweater should arrive in plenty of time!

The postman delivers our ugly Christmas sweaters fast!


Whasup Wassail

Whasupp Wassail?

What IS wassail?

Wassail is a beverage that was 'wildly' popular during the holidays in England especially around the Victorian era. The name, wassail comes from the old English phrase, Waes hael, meaning to your health.  A great toast then and now!

The concoction then was made with apples, spices, ale, eggs and sometimes cream.  Today's version is made of apples, sugar, spices, and ale (and yes today's still has eggs in it!)

In the olden days, folklore tells us that people also poured wassail on their apple trees, as a way to thank them for the harvest, and assure that the following harvest would be good.

Consider adding some tradional foods and customs to your holiday festivities.  Treat those carolers at your door to some wassail, less they become demanding like days of lore.  What do you think was actually happening in We Wish You a Merry Christmas?

Oh, bring us a figgy pudding and a cup of good cheer
We won't go until we get some;
We won't go until we get some;
We won't go until we get some, so bring some out here
