Did you know only about 12% of the population is left-handed? While it may sound like a small number we are celebrating in a big way because August 13 marks the official date of International Left Handers Day! 

For those of you celebrating today, we have the perfect spot where everything is just right—for left-handers! Lefty’s—The Left Hand Store is a one-of-a-kind concept that can only be found at Disney Springs and in San Francisco. The original store opened in 1978 on PIER 39 and was the very first store in the United States to specialize in products for left-handers. Their second location at Disney Springs opened in 2011 in the Marketplace and has been delighting guests ever since with their collection of unique lefty gifts and everyday tools.

Some of their best sellers include left-handed pens, pencils and scissors which are hot commodities during the back-to-school season for kids. Another favorite is the custom “dribble” mug—watch out righties, because this mug has a hole on the side that will dribble liquid if a right-handed person uses it. You’ll also find a collection of t-shirts, cooking utensils, tools, and more.

  • And we love our Left handed family member very much! Here’s to all the Left handed people in the world with their slightly different take on things! :)))
    They tend to be very bright and interesting, at least with our family, and yes, very special too! 😉

    Okay time to shop!
