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!

EVERYBODY needs a good summer scarf to stay stylish through those hot summer nights. Made from 100% cotton this periwinkle, ivory and marigold striped infinity is perfect to add a little touch of chic to your summer. It’s loose around the neck so it won’t heat you up, and the cotton breathes beautifully! $48 USD and now on the Square Market!

 

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!

Work in Progress Tuesday

Although you can’t tell by walking outside, spring IS coming!! We promise!

We’re working on a few projects right now that will fit right in with your early spring wardrobe.

First up, we’re feeling a little feisty with this animal print purse in progress. Will it stay a clutch? Leather straps perhaps? Jeweled brooch? Email us and let us know what you think, or post your suggestions on Facebook at armcandykc@gmail.com or www.facebook.com/armcandykc !

Now for a little vintage fabric lovin’! If you are a vintage lover like us, you know that finding a gem like this is a pearl beyond price. Great color variation, texture, and look at that hem!! This fabric was found at a little store just outside of Kansas City, and our minds are racing with ideas of accessories to make! We’ll post the finish product ASAP!

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!

Get Mom Something Special!

Mother’s Day is just one week away, do you have the perfect one-of-a-kind accessory that says “I Love You”? If not, come on down, we’ve got it here!

Because this (see below) just isn’t going to cut it this year 🙂

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?!
