October at Hickory Dickory

It is so hard to believe that just a few months ago we were all festival wristlets and family bar-b-que cross body’s. Now, the leaves are changing, our windows are open, and everything we eat begins with the word “Pumpkin.”

At Hickory Dickory this weekend we’re embracing Fall and stocking our shelves with cozy cowls, chunky knits, and felted handbags! Bring your thermos of pumpkin spice latte, fill up on pumpkin bread, and head on down here this weekend for some amazing antiques, inspiration, and of course, a little Arm Candy!

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?!

The Cure for the Common Cabin Fever

Admit it, ya’ll, the snow is pretty, but we’re getting a lit-tle tired of walking around in 17 layers of clothes and eating never ending pot roast left overs (seriously, why is there ALWAYS more pot roast?!)

So I’ve got a cure for the common cabin fever. HICKORY DICKORY!!!! It’s warm, its cozy, it gets you out of the house, spring is happening in here! Come on out, and let’s beat this winter thing together with handbags and wristlets and clutches and our first ever Arm Candy at Home collection!

Starting tonight and all weekend at Hickory Dickory in the Kansas City West Bottoms! See the preview photo below for one of our many new repurposed pieces.

See you tonight!
