Exciting Online Shop News!

Hey Arm Candies!! It’s been a while! A huge thanks to all of you for making us busy bees here at Arm Candy! We’re bursting with ideas for fall and have some newness to share with you today!

But first, our news! We are working to combine our WordPress and Square Market shops to create one destination for all your online shopping needs and this post includes the first draft! We have found that purchasing goods via the Square Market is so much easier and seamless than our original Paypal destination.

All of our Square Market items can be found by clicking the link, and soon, we will only show photos of our products on our website, with links to the Square page for purchase! If you are a festival goer, or small business supporter, chances are you’ve used the Square reader to pay for your purchases using a credit card, now you can use the same company online!

Thanks for your support!

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 !

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!

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!

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 😉

$39 USD- Will be at Hickory Dickory during the October First Weekend, if you are interested but can not attend, please send us a message and we will send it to you!

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!
