A Six Second Tour of or Warehouse December 05 2013
Over 8,000 Ugly Christmas Sweaters
Here's a quick peak inside the walls of our somewhat organized "warehouse" - we call it a warehouse or shop or shoppe when we're feeling fancy, but really its just an open space filled with racks and racks and racks that hold all of our vintage, tacky, 80's sometimes 90's and even worse sometimes 70's style Ugly Christmas Sweaters.
Things Got Ugly on Fox & Friends June 03 2013
Well, it's officially become another holiday tradition, as "Team Ugly", Adam, Kevin and myself made our fourth consecutive appearance on Fox & Friends this weekend, but with a twist - things got ugly LIVE in their New York studios! This was our first time visiting their NYC studios, as we have traditionally just done a satellite feed from Chicago, so it was up close, in person and even more UGLY!
There's nothing more exciting this time of year than to see hundreds of thousands of people from all over the globe come to view the Christmas decorations and lights in New York City! The highlight was seeing the Christmas tree lit up at 30 Rockefeller Plaza - simply amazing! Certainly motivated us to make this season of ugly Christmas sweaters the best yet!
If you missed our segment, be sure to check out the replay below, as we were honored to help kick off the StandUp2Cancer (SU2C) new campaign called "Hey Cancer It's Gonna Get Ugly!" - Not only are we excited to announce and promote the campaign, but we've also decided to participate and set the goal to raise $10,000 this December!

2012 Recap & 4th Annual Ugly Christmas Sweater Party December 30 2012
Our 4th Annual Ugly Christmas Sweater Party was a huge success and a great way to end the 2012 season! We had such a great turnout - the bar was packed, the bowling lanes were full as hundreds of our friends, family and complete strangers gathered wearing their ugliest and tackiest Christmas sweaters to have a great time and raise money for StandUp2Cancer. We're proud to say that with the help of over 20 local businesses and all those in attendance, we generated over $800 worth of raffle prizes and over $500 in cash donations!
Thank you so much to all of our customers and business partners that helped make 2012 another record year! Without you all, we'd just be three guys in a warehouse filled with wool, cotton and synthetic blend materials - THANK YOU!
We wish you all the best in 2013!
Team Ugly - Adam, Brian & Kevin
We really appreciate the help from our friends and local Crown Point, Indiana businesses that generously provided gifts towards our fundraiser - Thank you very much!

Good Morning America! (GMA) Ugly Christmas Sweater Fashion Show December 08 2012
So I never thought I'd see the day when George Stephanopoulos and Sam Champion would be standing there in Times Square, live on national television wearing very festive and extremely ugly Christmas sweater, but wouldn't ya know it - there they were with the rest of the GMA crew this week as they held a live fashion show - err - ugly/fashion show, if that makes sense!
Anyhow, it was a good laugh to see the team not take themselves too seriously, in fact - a few really take their Ugly Christmas Sweater style VERY serious. We were lucky enough for Good Morning America and their guest reporter and contributing Style Editor at Lucky Magazine, Lori Bergamotto, to mention and show a few images of our book, "The Ugly Christmas Sweater Party Book: The Definitive Guide to Getting Your Ugly On"
So much fun this time of year to see EVERYONE get into the festive mood!
Cheers & Enjoy the Segment "Ugly Christmas Sweater Parties Phenomenon Sweeps GMA"
