A Locally Sourced Tuesday

At Arm Candy we strive to not only make one of a kind products for you to enjoy and love, we also do our best to get our fabrics, yarns and fasteners from local sources. This Tuesday we are featuring a bag re-loved from a vintage feed sack of a company established in 1914, today headquartered in Columbia, MO. We’ve re-purposed this feed sack into an awesome, reinforced carry-all tote that you can use everyday!

We will have this item featured for sale at this weekend’s Hickory Dickory market! See you there!

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?!
