Lovely Hoopers!

I'm so stoked to return to Hoop Convergence this year AND, I'll be vending some  fantastic threads from Hoopclothes.com!!  Can't wait to see you!! <3

xoxo

I will be vending at HC with some stock hoops, but the price with this discount (see previous comment) is a bit cheaper than if you buy on-site. Also, I will not be crafting hoops on-site, so if you want a custom size or configuration contact me - I'll build it and have it for you there. O♥!

Comment by Randy Kato on April 20, 2012 at 11:19am

Hey Hoopers!

Can't wait to spin with you all in less than a month. I also wanted to offer you all a special deal - if you order one of my custom collapsible polypro hoops (now available in UV-reactive colors) you'll get 10% off and I'll deliver it directly to you at Hoop Convergence.

Use coupon code: HOOPCON2012

Note: this is only valid for orders picked up in person at Hoop Convergence 2012.

If you want a size that isn't listed, just let me know and I'll make it happen. Cheers!
