What's New in Store This Week...

Are you ready for the Fall? Don't worry we've got you covered, literally. This week the store is filled with new Fall accessories to update your summer look along with some necessary basics on both the men's and women's side of the store. 

The West is Dead is one of the new Fall additions to the store with their warm 100% wool hats and passion to preserve the wild west. This American based line strives to use the best possible raw materials and they responsibly source and produce everything they possibly can in the U.S. These fall basics are great for both men and women. 

We've also received some new Fall fashions from Farah to help you add a little English style to your everyday look. Stop by and check out the new long sleeve button ups and dress pants. 

Why not complement your style with a one-of-a-kind belt buckle from the Ohio based husband and wife team, Maxine Dear. These buckles are made from vintage book covers sparing them from the dump and breathing new life into old classics. 

Also new in store is the Los Angeles based line Trescis which is a blending of trends and basics. Made with a focus on detail, these basic pieces are constructed with the finest yarns for the moderate market including cotton modal. Make sure to stop in and check them out. Also fitting with the theme of basics we have American Apparel cotton leggings in a variety of colors to get you through the cooler months. 

We've also been hard at work re-stocking local selections in store this week including new recycled leather cuffs from Jared, wallets and bags from Beans & Rice, crocheted neck cowls from becky's buttons & things, handmade clothing from Pearl and jewelry from She's Crafty. Jared is a local designer working in recycled leather to create unique wrist cuffs, his new styles incorporate buckles and pockets. 

Beans and Rice is the newest line of Vegan-friendly bags and wallets from Fancy Tiger Manager Vanessa. These handmade vinyl creations are sure to complement anyone's style with their hand embroidered detailing of fruits, vegetables and insects. 

Moving on to the work of another Fancy Tiger team member, Becky of becky's buttons & things has been busy crocheting some warm neck cowls to shield your neck from the elements. These 100% organic cotton creations are adorned with handmade fabric buttons and are available in six different color combinations.

What's new in store this week?

Well we have a lot to report on this week. Not only are our jewelry cases overflowing with new designers but we've been sneaking out more coats and basics to get you through the season. We also have some new designs in from some of our favorite indie designers, so without further ado I bring you what's new in store. 

Ever since we met with Betsy of Betsy and Iya back in August we've been anxiously awaiting her line of vintage inspired, handmade jewelry. Through her use of mixed metals, vintage beads and bold style this Portland based designer has a style all her own. 

This week we have also welcomed Portland based jewelry designer Heidi Cain and her line passionflower into our cases. We spied this line at the Pool Trade Show this year in Vegas and fell in love with her use of line work and color in the vibrant yet simple pieces of jewelry made from shrinky dink plastic. She transforms this nostalgic medium into simple, naturally inspired pieces that complement any style. 

We've also added some new handmade pieces to our women's section in the form of new Fall designs from the North Carolina based line Just Like Honey Clothing. The designer behind this line, Lesley, uses new, vintage and recycled materials to breathe new life into her repurposed fashions. This season we are seeing a lot of bold patterns and casual cuts. 

Over on the men's side we are stocking up on basics from American Apparel to get you through the Fall. 

We are also seeing quite a few clothing designers using recycled materials this Fall, the newest addition being Cash Crop with their 100% recycled men's peacoat. This classic cut is created using recycled wool and recycled silk lining with the addition of coconut buttons. Also hitting the floor a long sleeve, button-up 100% organic cotton chambray. 

Happy Shopping!

New Jewelry Makes for Colorful Cases

Building on the theme of last week's product post, we are stocking up on new jewelry designs for the Fall. All these lines share a common theme of using color as a prominent element in their designs. Take Charlotte Kruse of Sweet Evie for example, this Los Angeles based designer uses repurposed leather scraps in curated color palettes to create accessories with a natural feel. We recently stocked our cases with some of her new earring and hair clip designs.

Carrying on with the theme of color Leslie Yang of the California based Fiesty Elle uses vibrant colors in the form of laser cut merino wool to create delicate accessories for women. Building on the success of her last shipment of earrings and hair clips we added a few new colors and a few new designs  in the form of feather earrings, necklaces and smaller hair clips. 

The feather earrings (as seen in the photos above) can be worn in one of two ways, hanging or folded to add dimension. 

We would also like to take this opportunity to welcome Camille Falk Designs to the Fancy Tiger Family. This local jewelry designer adds mobile like movement to her seemingly effortless designs by using curved wire, the end result is an elegant one of a kind pair of earrings. Make sure to check out Camille's new line of earrings in stock now. 

While you're at it stop by and check out the newest designs from Denver based designer Sam Spitzer of Junk Heart Jewelry
