Ocean Minded launching bags for fall ‘08

I talked with Gary Ward the other day about how life has changed since publicly-traded Crocs, Inc. bought his sandal company, Ocean Minded, earlier this year.


Let's just say Gary is loving the extra financial backing, distribution and production support. Crocs has a market cap of $3.7 billion.


For the upcoming trade shows, Ocean Minded will expand into soft bags for men and women made with organic fabrics.


My column for OC METRO about how life has changed for Gary since the sale is online now.
