Thanks for a great 2010!

Happy New Year! 2010 was a great year at Ponycaps! I would like to thank our customers from coast to coast and Canada! We are very excited to get started in 2011.

Ponycaps made a significant step in 2010 by officially filing for a patent with the United States Patent and Trademark office. We have our fingers crossed. :-)

In 2010, Ponycaps grew 35%. We had four major successful shows throughout the year;
*National Synchronized Skating Championship, Mariucci Arena at the University of Minnesota - March 2010
*Denver Invitational, South Suburban Ice Arena, Centennial, CO March 2010
*Colorado Country Christmas Show, Denver Merchandise Mart, Denver, CO, November 2010
*Fall Craft Showcase, Canterbury Downs, Shakopee, MN, November 2010

Our show schedule for 2011 is pending at this time. Potential show locations include Minnesota, Colorado, and North Dakota. Show listings for 2011 will be posted later in the year.

Ponycap happily to contribute to several charitable organizations in 2010. We gave dozens of Ponycaps to GRIT Athletics, St. Anne's School, and Theta Xi Gamma for their silent auctions. We also donated team caps directly to the Gustavus Adolphus College Gustie Blades synchronized skating team and the Edina High School Girls soccer team.

Store sales continue to solidly contribute to Ponycaps. We have a targeted store focus at The Uncommon Thread in the Highlands at 32nd and Lowell in Denver, and are looking to expand in to new retail locations during 2011.

The weather conditions this year across the nation have driven Ponycap online sales from a broad geographic spectrum. We hope Ponycaps across the country kept our patrons warm while shoveling mountains of snow over the past few months.

We are adding new styles and products to our lineup. We have intricate flower designs available that feature multiple colors and shapes. Ponycap has expanded to include coordinating scarves and mittens. Our scarves come in three different styles; scrolly, plain, and patterned. New products are currently only available at shows or as a custom email order. Please email me if you have any interest in purchasing a new product. Online purchasing coming soon to our website for these items.

Please check out the new photos in our blog which feature our new products!
