Spreading The Snood Fever

I am happy to announce that a line of my Arthelia A. snoods are now being carried at Beauty's Boutique located in Central Mall in Fort Smith, Arkansas.
Beauty's Boutique sells clothing for everyone! Men's, Women's, and Baby apparel and accessories. Modern and Retro furniture and housewares are also for sale. The theme of the store is west coast/ pin up/ 50's/ handmade/ with a bit of nyc flair.
They also have a Facebook store so if you aren't in the area take a peek and order online.
Beauty's Boutique is run by the lovely Bevin Green. While we were chatting she asked me a little about the history of snoods so I thought I would share it with you too.

Snoods have been around for centuries. From the Renaissance time period.....

To the Civil War era.

When Gone With The Wind hit theaters in the late 1930's it brought them back into fashion......

...throughout the 1940's.

Women working in factories during WWII especially loved them for their ability to keep there hair back and still look good.

Today they are a must have accessory for the modern girl who loves the vintage or pinup look!
