Need some Green Gloves for St. Patrick’s Day?


If you need some Green Gloves for St. Patrick’s Day it’s still not too late.You will just have to pay a little extra for shipping depending on where you live. 
 
Our Green Flash Gloves are popular this time of year for St. Patrick Day parades and parties.  We carry them in both Men’s and Women’s sizes and I provided links below to make it easy for you to find them rather than search our huge selection of gloves. 
As an FYI, our special search function (yellow box) on our web site will find them too but then you will see each and every green glove we carry which can be overwhelming. 
It is worth mentioning that we also stock parade style gloves in many colors just in case you need something special for Easter. 
P.S. Don’t forget those white gloves either – for Easter Sunday. 
Happy St. Patties Day, the Glove Guru 

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.

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.

Who said the glove business is boring?

From time to time I do like to add an unusual or fun post and this seemed appropriate before the holidays.
Yes, this is a wedding dress made from rubber gloves. I must admit that this is a first – for me anyway – and the artist is either incredibly creative or just loves gloves like me.
Wedding dresses are renowned to be very pricey but if you knew how expensive disposal rubber gloves are these days, this dress would obviously be over the top for most buyers.
However, if anyone out there needs disposable gloves (or any gloves for that matter) for a new outfit or artistic idea, please let me know. We have many glove types and many glove colors. For example – we have flesh colors for that nude look; purple for a fun look; and even black for those formal events. I’m sure we can make you a deal.

Some glove traditions never change

And GO Gloves has managed to help with hard-to-find White Gloves for the last 15 years.
As a matter of fact, White Gloves were our first major glove line on our web site back in 1996. (To put that in perspective that was 2 years before Google’s beta version.) Today, our White Glove program remains our largest product line by far and we estimate that we are the largest supplier of white glove in North America.
Besides providing gloves to doormen (see article) around the world, we have many types of white glove styles for any occasion or event. For all age groups, too. Check them out for yourself.

Two gloves fetched $670,000 last week.

That’s not a typo in the headline but it does confirm to me that I am in the right business. I just wish I had my hands in the deals.

The first was Michael Jackson’s flashy glove he wore during his performance at the 1983 Motown 25 (shown). It sold for $420,000 to a buyer in Hong Kong, China. I sure wish I thought of putting rhinestone sequins on a store bought glove.


The other was a NASA award of $250,000 for developing a more flexible space glove for use by astronauts. This is the second year in a row that Peter Homer in Maine won. I made a post here last year about his first space glove achievement.


Several years ago I helped a NASA prime contractor develop glove liners but I think I might be better off hooking up with Mr. Homer. Maybe I’ll even get luckier for the bigger prize and have a new stage performer find me. The bottom line is that I think NASA got a deal looking at the numbers and the gloves.

Gloves always complete a Holiday costume

One of our famous customers was kind enough to send us a picture of his children’s Halloween costumes. It wouldn’t be difficult to realize from the picture that he is also the Demo Guru at the leading toy store in the world.

We give his wife a huge ^5 on creating and making the Toy Soldier outfits and selecting our gloves for a finishing touch. We only hope that the DiAmbrosio’s continue the tradition (whatever the theme) and allow us to send them more gloves next year.

My hunch is that our friends at Disney and Universal Studios will be asking me for Mrs. DiAmbrosio’s phone number.
