Halloween Gloves Spike Consumer Glove Sales


Who knew?  We do! 
Yes, every year in October we see a rapid spike in our consumer glove sales. It’s no mystery either. It is all about people looking for that special glove to add the final touch to their Halloween costumes. 
  
Although most of these glove sales include our white glovesand our colored gloves, we do see an uptick in glove sales with our opera length colored fashion gloves and our black gloves among a few others. In fact, I’m told by our staff that the customer phone requests can get rather amusing, too. 
From a businessman’s perspective, I’m inclined to believe that our prices are so low, their almost scary. And that’s no mystery either. 
 
Happy Halloween from the Glove Guru.

Cold weather gloves for your I-Phone and cell phone


5 Million New I-Phones were sold this past weekend, so you can imagine we will be overwhelmed with glove orders for these extraordinary gloves. The cold weather is here already so don’t wait and be forced to settle for a model that is out of stock. 
We were the first to introduce cell phone gloves to the world back in 2008 and we sell out our allotments every year since. Our best sellers are the Isotoner and Freehands models and they are great gifts, too.
We stock many models, many styles, including men’s and women’s models and teens. And by the way, our touch screen gloves will never be obsolete.

About Nappa Leather Gloves


Many customers ask what Nappa Leather is so it’s time to strip away the myths about Nappa leathers. 

Nappa leather is full-grain leather, typically dyed, and made from unsplit kidskin, lambskin or sheep skin. It is tanned with salts of chromium or aluminum sulfate, and noted for its softness, stretchiness, flexibility, and durability. It is often used in high-quality leather products such as high-end furniture, wallets, handbags, and most often high quality dress and fashion gloves. 
Nappa leather should not be confused with cowhide which is thicker, less flexible, and used in heavy-duty work gloves. 
Even though Italian leather craftsmen have mastered making and working with Nappa leather, the tanning process which produces Napa leather was invented in 1875 at the Sawyer Tanning Company in Napa, California. 
Examples of popular Men’s and Women’s Nappa leather gloves can be found at the following links:

Gloves-Online announces new “Hot Glove” pre-order program for the new ICON Fashion Gloves

The new ICON Designer Art Leather Gloves arriving in October are now available for pre-order since we purchased all that the factory can produce this year. Quantities will be limited due to their popularity, limited production, and the fact that these glove models have become collector’s items. The design patterns change annually so we suggest you reserve your own personal pair today. 
The ideal Christmas gift this year. 
This pre-order program has been popular since 2007 for our Chinchilla Lined Gloves. Order today and we will guarantee immediate delivery once they arrive. 

Celebrating One Million Page Views for Gloves


Early today, Gloves-Online.com reached the astonishing milestone of One Million page views since January 1– and before our busy season. 
Page views are the conservative metric when evaluating web site analytics. For example, if we counted actual hits, the number would be 7 to 10 times higher due to images, etc. You can see this in the chart.
Although we are very proud of this success, I wish to thank all the glove families that made this happen. My thanks (ranked according to their contributions) go to Mr. & Mrs. White Gloves, Leather Gloves, Winter Gloves, Fashion Gloves, Church Gloves, Bamboo Gloves, Sport Gloves, Cotillion Gloves, Usher Gloves, Coated Gloves, Cut Resistant Gloves, Grip Gloves, Fancy Gloves, Parade Gloves, Heat Resistant Gloves, Mechanics Gloves, and Electrician Gloves
To demonstrate the significance of this number, we have not factored (added) in the customers that migrate to our industrial web site from GO to purchase their industrial and safety gloves. The GO Industrial web site is a completely different web site and we obviously don’t share those metrics since many people follow this Blog – a.k.a industrial espionage – but you can perceive those hits. 
For the skeptics out there, I’ve added a web shot image of our actual metric scale which can be enlarged. 
I doubt there is another glove company in the world that has reached this milestone in less than 9 months. After all, we were the very first global glove company on the Internet since 1996. 
I can’t wait to see how successful the internet shop of our fine fashion glove boutique in St. Thomas, USVI, Olga Gloves, becomes.

Everything you need to know about Bamboo Gloves

Today, marks three (3) years since I launched the GO Greens® Bamboo Gloves web site. Most of you are already familiar with the GO Greens®gloves but you may not be aware with the numerous benefits that our gloves made from bamboo offer.
It’s worthwhile looking at the GO Greens®Gloves web site and learn why I embarked on year-long effort developing these gloves over 3 years ago.  You will discover, like me, things like 100% biodegradability (compostable), 10 times stronger than cotton, natural UV resistance, low costs, eco-friendly, and so forth. 
There is even an enlightening section on the web site that educates you about bamboo and the virtues of products made from bamboo – the most sustainable plant on earth.  
If I knew 20 years ago what I know today about bamboo, I would have planted bamboo plantations in the coastal plains of eastern North Carolina to replace tobacco.  I might be a lot wealthier but then I would have missed the fun bringing the GO Greens® Bamboo gloves to the world. 

This is not about gloves – it’s about the Glove Guru Blog

I’ve been discussing gloves here for over 4 years now since 2008. That’s a lot of glove speak about gloves.  The subscriber base has increased dramatically and the antiquated Google FeedBurner which delivers my posts to you just doesn’t cut it these days. Too many delays, too many problems, and no support forced me to jump to a more robust platform to deliver my glove news and posts to you. 
The new feed for my posts is called FeedBlitz. It offers similar functions as before but with more management tools and more reliability. 
Actually, this post is actually and “hopefully” being delivered by the FeedBlitz program.  I don’t want all of you to confirm that you received this post or I will be reading e-mails for days. However, I would appreciate hearing from a few of you (friends and the other glove gurus) to confirm that your subscription was transferred properly as a quality control issue. 
Once I confirm that everything is working properly again, I’ll be announcing a new glove line being featured this fall at our Olga Gloves shop in St. Thomas, USVI. 

GO Greens Bamboo Gloves – 3 Years and 10 ½ tons later

This week marks the 3rd Anniversary of the introduction of our GO Greens Bamboo Gloves
Out of curiosity, I reviewed our files and discovered that we have produced over 10 ½ tons of our bamboo gloves. That’s 21,375 US lbs. to save you time calculating. It’s not surprising if you look at our warehouse and the ocean freight shipping containers behind our loading dock. 
However, the weight numbers are surprising when you pick up a pair of these lightweight but heavy duty multi-purpose utility gloves made from bamboo. 
As a GO Green Glove user, you’ve made our planet greener, our air fresher, reduced landfill burden, and saved yourself some money at the same time. 
If you’re not a user yet and want to learn more about GO Green Gloves click on this link: GO Greens Bamboo Gloves 
Since our GO Green Glove business continues to grow, it will be interesting to see how the next three years will weigh out. 

Bionic Golf Gloves – The golf gloves with the backing of science

As you all know, I’m a glove guru but these golf gloves were designed by a leading orthopedic hand surgeon. It’s hard to beat design technology based on the anatomy of the hand and the science of ergonomics. 
The few notable examples are:
Anatomical Relief Pads
Pre-Rotated Finger Design
Web and Motion Zones
These gloves sell themselves once a golfer purchases his or hers first pair. And, since I like to keep these posts brief and there is much more to say, I suggest you go to the link below to see and learn more about these gloves. 
  
If you’re interested in trying a glove for yourself, send me an email at my profile link and I’ll send you a special code for free shipping. Simply mention this post. 
In my next post, I’ll share some new information about the new Bionic Gardening Gloves.  These are another unique must have glove for gardening.
