The place was packed and they have to control the number of people inside hence the long line outside the tent.
Go to Rockwell Tent early… or you’ll end up falling and waiting in line for 2 hours just to get inside the tent. Knowing which styles/colors to get is also a big help to save time since you’ll also be spending an hour inside falling in line (again!) and waiting for your flip-flops to be made. If you want your flip-flops to be embellished with Swarovskis, you have to go to a dedicated counter so that means falling in line again.
Moi deciding the color combination and pins…
While waiting outside, one of the staffs will be handing out the brochures/guide (sort of an Order Form). The brochure shows the colors of the straps and soles, lifestyle pins and Swarovskis. Fill out the form, state your size, choose colors that you want and the lifetyle pins and letters you want to add.
At the counter waiting for my pairs…
For my Slim, crystal blue sole, golden sun slim strap, star and letter “b” pins
Putting pins at the straps takes time, so be patient…
They have this rule “Once holed, considered sold” policy so make sure that you state the position for your pins, especially if you want to spell out your name.
I am now a proud owner of 4 customized pairs!
For every pair of Havaianas purchased, you’ll get a stub for a free snack. The snack includes 1 pack of Holy Kettle Corn and 1 small cup of Nestea Iced Tea (I wished the cup was bigger though).

This is why I love MYOH, hubby and I get to have matching pairs. We chose to have dark brown sole, moss green straps (slim strap for me) and skull pins.
