Hats for the Hungry Thanksgiving Food Drive

Last year’s Hats for the Homeless beanie drive was a huge success but since we now have the local shelter all stocked up on beanies, we thought we would reach out to another group in need at this time of year… those who can’t afford a Thanksgiving feast like so many of us are lucky enough to eat.


From now thru November 20th, come into our Old Town Fort Collins shop with a non-perishable food item to donate to the Food Bank for Larimer County and get 40% off a new Akinz beanie of your choice. Any unopened food items are accepted, however here are some ‘most needed’ items recommended by the Food Bank.

Suggested food items for Thanksgiving:
• Stuffing (Bagged or Boxed)
• Cranberries
• Yams/Sweet Potatoes
• Canned Vegetables
• Frozen Turkeys

Suggested healthy food items:
•Peanut butter (non-hydrogenated oil)
•Canned meat/fish (chicken, salmon, tuna)
•Canned Fruit in Fruit Juice
•Whole grain, low sugar cereal
•Canned Soup (low sodium)

Soak up the Last Summer

Nights are getting cooler and mornings have that tiny bit of frost in the air that lets you know that Winter is coming, but during the daylight hours, it’s still summertime. Soak it up in our summer to fall transition lookbook.

Fort Collins – Land of Bikes, Beer & more beer

Chances are if you’ve visited Fort Collins or live locally, you’ve spent a day riding bikes, going on brewery tours and hanging out by the Cache la Poudre river. So we thought we’d create our 2nd summer mini lookbook as an homage to the two things that make the Fort Collins community run… bikes & beer.






Take a spin down the Poudre bike trail to New Belgium brewing, then continue on to another local fave with the best patio in town, Odell Brewing, and then take a detour back to Old Town Fort Collins, where you can come visit the people who make your tees and beanies, yours truly. See you soon!
