    TBT: WHEN WINKY GOT SASSY

    It was January 1996 and thanks to the 'grunge' trend, the world of fashion was a drab flannel place.  Other than Betty Rubble becoming a Flintstone Vitamin, there wasn't much to celebrate in the pop culture centric world of fashion.  But then it happened, Winky&Dutch got Sassy.

Changing up our assortment by saying goodbye to products like lamps, makeup mirrors, & button covers, may hurt a bit but this is what allows us to move forward and give a SASSY hello to the future and add newness like tac pins, charms or post earrings. Most importantly Winky&Dutch remembers to keep whats important, our classic accessories are still proudly made in the USA, and just as the slightly hilarious SASSY editorial proves, our accessories and our artwork are timeless and multi functional

    The April 2001 issue was dedicated to Flea Market Decorating (isn't it now called re-purposing?) Under the heading of "Country Classics You Can Buy", with a sub heading of 'Retro" Under the latch hook rug, the cat eye glasses, and a toy plane, there it was, our travel themed charm style bracelet, which at the time was available at AlphabetsNYC.
