A Lovely Tuesday

Happy Tuesday!

Summer has finally arrived and we are thrilled because that means festival season is upon us. Welcome to fun-in-the-sun days and hot summer nights filled with concerts and art fairs with family and friends.

A must have for a summer outdoors is a small, fashionable cross body bag that can carry your essentials and leave your hands free to hold walking tacos and shopping bags. This new Flower Child Cross Body is the perfect accessory for your summer in the sun!

This little bag will be featured at Hickory Dickory this June 6-8 in the West Bottoms of Kansas City, but if you find you need it before then, please feel free to email us at armcandykc@gmail.com or message us on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/armcandykc !

Square Market Tuesday!

Around here, we’re always excited about something. So let’s change up the language a bit this week. We are ECSTATIC to announce our new e-commerce platform, the Square Market. Many of you who have purchased with us at Hickory Dickory or at any of our conventions or shows, you’ve probably used the Square Reader to purchase your items. Recently the brilliant minds at Square Up have formed an online market for one-of-a-kind and original, small business vendors.

We decided to start a public profile, post a few items for sale to start, and join in on the fun! Shopping the Square Market is totally free, and you do not have to be a member to search for items and businesses! Go check us out and keep checking back for more and more items being added every day at https://squareup.com/market/arm-candy-kc !!!!

Stay tuned next Tuesday for some awesome new items and maaaayybee a new art show announcement! We’ve also updated our Calendar for your reference! Have a great week ACK lovers!

Crazy for Cozy!!

Here in Kansas City we seem to be having a bit of Indian Summer this week! But across the country, the weather is getting chilly, leaves are falling, and pumpkin spice is fast becoming the official national drink. ‘Tis the season of cold weather accessories, and we are embracing it with mulled wine in hand!

For this week’s sneak peak Tuesday, we are breaking out the riding boots and cable knits, because baby, it’s cold outside!

First up, just because the air is crisp doesn’t mean you have to put away your cross body bags! These bags can and should be used all year! Amp up the glam with this Russian inspired vegan fur and denim number! $24 USD

In keeping with the glam theme, check out this sequin caramel and cream cowl! Throw this on with simple black, denim or navy and watch your outfit come to life!

$36 USD- sport this infinity cowl long or doubled to keep you extra cozy! Will be available at Hickory Dickory this October First Weekend! If you’ve gotta have it before then, just send us a message and we will ship it to you!

Sneak Peak Monday!!

The slightly cooler weather has us creating up a storm! Get ready for tons of chunky knits and animal print from us this pre-holiday season. The fall collection will be officially debuting our fall collection at Hickory Dickory, October 4th, 5th, and 6th so be sure to come down to the West Bottoms!

In the meantime, though, we decided to post a few sneak peak photos to get your blood pumping for the upcoming First Weekend!

 

UGH! OK. Let’s get real here for a second. That first day the temperature is below 60 degrees, don’t you just want to go into full chicken-noodle-soup-pot-roast -meatloaf hibernation mode?! Unfortunately though, we can’t all just take a sabbatical from October to May, so head to work and run your errands in comfortable, cozy style with this decadent, buttery-soft knit cowl. It will take the chill out right out of your bones, but please, don’t blame us if you fall asleep at your desk wearing it 😉

Falling For Fall

Fall is almost here and we have been designing and creating up a STORM! Dare we say The Holidays are just around the corner?! OK fine, we take it back.

Since the Holidays are practically years away, let’s think Fall for now! We’re creating some amazing layering pieces for fall including cozy cowls, caplets, and extra-long scarves! As ever, we’ve got your favorite clutches and felted bags hot off the knitting needles as well!

We have so many events in the works for fall, but you can always find us at Hickory Dickory in the West Bottoms of Kansas City, every first weekend of the month. By the holidays we will be in several stores around the country and will definitely keep you posted!

We hope you enjoy falling for fall as much as we are!

What a Find!

There is nothing better than taking a stroll through a thrift store and finding a GEM!

This Sunday I realized I was running low on feed sack bags….TERRIFYING! So I went to a few local thrift shops in the area and at my last stop, guess what I found!

Had to post….Any suggestions on what this feed sack should become?!
