  • Madi baggins shoesFor a lot of people, spring break symbolizes a week off work and school—a time for much-needed rest, relaxation, and perhaps some housecleaning paired with a cold beverage or two.

    But for Madilyn, the next staffer featured in the Baggins Blog Meet the Staff Series, spring break in 2016 meant orientation time as she spent her days breaking in her new role as Retail Manager at Baggins.

  • Baby, it’s cold outside—but when you’re wearing a Herschel’s beanie (some may call them toques), you’ll be nice and toasty.

    This fall, Baggins is stoked to announce it has in stock an assortment of Herschel fall fashion beanies. Yep, that’s right. The brand you know and love for its reliable backpacks, like the Heritage, Pop Quiz , and Settlement lines, also make seasonal headwear to match:

    Nope, didn’t think so. (It’s OK, Tara. No one’s asking questions!)

  • So many things hailing from the seventies were built to last. Cars, boats, radios, record players, televisions, T-shirts and telephones are all examples of quality-built items that, if you took care of them well in the seventies, continued to love you back well into the nineties.

    The same is true of the Converse 1970s line. Although the world’s most recognizable shoe brand had been around for decades, in the 1970s Converse decided to make a few tweaks to its sneakers. The 1970s Converse line included features like thicker soles and heavier canvas uppers. This higher quality meant that if you bought a pair of converse during this time period, you were likely still rocking them 10 or 15 years later—scuffs and frayed laces be damned!

  • We will admit that it’s not tons of fun writing a back to school blog post in the middle of summer, but hey, it’s got to get done, just like your back to school shopping inevitably has got to get done. You either love it or dread it, but being prepared for heading back to class in September almost always helps relieve some of those sinking feelings associated with summer being almost over.

    At Baggins, we like to make back to school shopping as easy as possible on our customers. That’s part of what we offer with our straightforward, easy to browse and quick to load web store. Use our easy online ordering process to get your back to school goods delivered right to your doorstep before the big day.

    You can shop in the middle of the night after a day at the beach, or if you have a good data plan, you can even do your ordering while you’re out camping. Otherwise, if you can swing it, come see us in person on Johnson Street in Victoria, BC , next time you’re near. Continue reading

  • This may come as a surprise to some, but it’s now cool again to give a pair of socks as a gift, particularly if the gift receiver happens to be an MLB fan or an NBA follower. Sport team fanatics now have more ways than ever to show off their team spirit. Particularly if their chosen sport is baseball or basketball.

    Stance has tons of varieties to suit the roving “sporties” out there. But even cooler than that, in May 2016, Stance became the official socks of the Major League Baseball organization. With features like elastic arch bands, self-adjusting cuffs, mesh vents to keep you cool, and reinforced toes and heels for durability,  it's no wonder this rising, dependable sock brand is also the official on-court sock of the National Basketball Association.

    Upon its official announcement, Stance stated in a press release that it plans to debut the new Fusion Baseball socks during the 2016 All-Star Game on July 12 at the San Diego Convention Center. Continue reading

  • Feeling a little bogged down lately? Had one too many hamburgers at the company picnic? Shouldn’t have gone up for seconds at that last wedding reception? We know the feeling, and are thinking maybe that heavy feeling one of the reasons why Vans has come out with the Vans Lite Line.

    With summer upon us, we here at Baggins say it’s now the perfect time to lighten up with the Vans Lite Line.

    The Baggins Vans Lite Line

    You see it everywhere you go: memory foam this, memory foam that. It has become a huge comfort in our lives, and we get that. Memory foam is comfy without being heavy, and it feels pretty good on the bottoms of your feet. But there’s a new foam in town, and it’s the basis of the new Vans Lite Line—Vans' CMEVA-based low-profile foam UltraCush™ Lite sockliners are ultralight and anatomically contoured for quick, responsive cushioning.
