Hula Hoops for sale ATL

Hey Atlanta! I just wanted to give ya an update that I have dropped off another pile of my hand crafted “weighted” hoops for sale at 42 Degrees in Atlanta, GA. There are a limited number of hoops available for sale at their location in Little Five Points Atlanta. You can find the address for where to buy a buy a hula hoop at their location in Atlanta below.

Adult hand crafted hula hoops are quite different than the ones you remember as a child. They are heavier in weight and more importantly larger in diameter to fit adult sized bodies. In reference to why sometimes it seems nearly impossible for an adult to hoop dance with a childs hoop, I always say its like trying on a kids pair of shoes, it just doesn’t work. Larger bodies will find an easier rhythm with a larger hoop. You can start with a size somewhere between your belly button and your chest as it stands on the floor in front of you. It doesn’t have to be exact. You can find more information on selecting the perfect hoop size for you on my FAQ page. Still can’t decide? Drop me a line and I can help you find the perfect size for your body type and goals inside the hoop. I also accept custom orders via my website shop or the aforementioned contact page.

Below you will find a pic I snapped quickly as I dropped off the hula hoops for sale in Atlanta today at 42 Degrees South in  Atlanta, GA. Beautiful color combos and glistening tapes Including iridescent sequin tapes in: sunfish(bright yellow) -ocean blue- emerald green & mirror tapes in shiny silver and shimmering gold all with gaffer taps accents for added grip on your hula hoop. Blue, hot pink, fluorescent orange, purple, black and red hoops to choose from. Check them out Atlanta!

I am so ready for the fire flies!!! Have you seen any yet? I have been just waiting, anticipating their sparkly arrival. My favorite bug of all time and most bugs give me the creeps. I have the fondest memories of dancing, singing and playing amidst their glow at Krug Park in St. Joseph, Missouri with my family. Krug Park was a beautiful place where we used to visit and feed the koi fish and ducks/geese at the lake. Complete with a gorgeous rose garden, play ground, glider swings), an amphitheater and more! Both my Mother and Father are from the Kansas City or St. Joseph, MO area. In fact, I still have a few relatives who live there to this day. Every Summer when we would make our road trip to MO, we would make a mandatory trip to the park. It sure has changed a lot over the years, but it remains one of my favorite childhood memories.

Now at 31 years of age, I look forward to their glow so I may hoop amongst their sparkly dance. I look forward to welcoming them into my backyard of our new home in Atlanta that we move into next week. SO MUCH GRATITUDE.
