Summer Sun- The Neon Signs

Not that long ago I took a quick trip out west to source some exciting new pieces for the shops- hopefully you've seen the newest turquoise, opals, coral, and other semiprecious stones we brought back from that trip, as well as the beautiful silver cuffs, rings, and earrings... if not- no time like the present.  I made a quick pit stop at the Neon Sign Museum- somewhere I've always wanted to go- and I was not disappointed.  There was inspiration everywhere!  You can learn all about how the museum is preserving history HERE.  (Keep in mind- I am only 5'2") The size and detail of some of these signs was just incredible. We don't need neon signs in Custard to...

Some things you never knew about Darby Wilcox... (and maybe a few you did)

(shop the look: sunglasses, earrings, blouse)  Not that long ago we hung out with the lovely Darby Wilcox- took a few photos of some fresh arrivals to the shop and chatted a bit!  Darby lives in Greenville, SC and she makes music! Check her out here: Darby Wilcox.  I first met her when she was playing at The Spinning Jenny with Vilai Harrington & The Hamptones.  I was in love with her dog, her style, and her voice! We bonded over our unicorn hair at the merch table and she made some time to come model for us. She's got a lot going on, including working hard on the second annual summer concert series Villive, which includes 12 Free Friday Concerts!!!!,...

January arrivals fit for a queen

Sometimes the grey of January can get us down, have us feeling like we're in a funk, or maybe we're handling some post-holiday blues (or post holiday bills!).  In any case, just because the skies are grey doesn't mean we have to be grey along with it.  Bo and I have been unpacking some of the most lovely new items over the past few days, and I think it's about time we call some attention to the items I am most excited about.  I've recently read that the flu outbreak is pretty bad this year too, so if you're sitting on the couch, under the covers, battling the flu going around, snuggle in, get well soon, and shop online!  ...

What's new? Seltzer it up!

Not to be redundant, but our new year's resolution is always about bringing you new and exciting lines that are made in the USA and eco-friendly.  We are kicking our new year off right by adding Seltzer Goods to the shelves of Custard and the online shelves too! Founded in NYC but based in my hometown, Asheville, NC, Seltzer is a welcomed addition to Custard.  Seltzer’s product lines include 100% recycled paper goods (available in our Home Accents) and American-made accessories (available in our Purses & Bags)!They also give back to EarthJustice which supports environmental causes.  Be the first to nab one of our newest totes, little pouches or stationary sets.  You'll be glad you did! Some of my favorites from the...

Let's do this! 2017 we are ready for you!

It's time for that same old new years journal entry... or is it?  I always feel like the New Year is a time for reflection and a time for trying new things or focusing in on the forgotten from last year, but honestly, I feel like my new year starts on my birthday (which isn't until August- so, no need to bore everyone with my own reflections).  Just in case you're looking for a more traditional new years post- here's one that I enjoyed reading: READ ME . In the mean time- let's talk about other new years subjects... like the Chinese New Year! This year is the year of the rooster, so Gamecock fans rejoice!  My choice for kicking off...
