A WAY BACK Look at Sandbox Threads



The snapshot above is of the Sandbox Threads website taken just a few days after we opened. If you'd like to browse around the original Sandbox Threads' website, enjoy. Many of the links are broken and images long gone, but you might enjoy seeing the humble beginnings from which we originate.

Two things strike me when I look at our original site and our first attempt to sell cool baby shirts. First, why on earth would anyone in there right mind buy from us with a website that looks so, well, generic and homemade? Thank you for your trust. We've come a long way and without those first customers we wouldn't be where we are today.

Second, the vast majority of the designs that we offered back then are still our best sellers today. I guess I really was onto something way back them because my original ideas still seem to be my best ideas.

Looking at the site then and the site now really brings a smile to my face. The changes have been a labor of love (and many times utter hate), but I'm really proud of how far we've come.
