Buy into Buffalo: Scarves @ Anatomy

When it comes to fashion in Buffalo, it really doesn’t get any more homegrown than Anatomy Designs on Elmwood Avenue. Designer Ali Eagen is the mastermind behind most of the clothing and accessories found in the boutique. This holiday season, Ali is featuring a variety of scarves made right here in Buffalo, and some of the scarves are even made from reused materials.

If you’re looking for a style built by Ali (Anatomy), then you should throw one of the stylish wool ruffle scarves around your neck – they retail at $30 (silk for $25). It’s just another way to keep yourself, or a loved one, warm and happy over the winter season… the professional designs are both classic and contemporary.

For the earth lovers out there, why not go for the scarves made out of recycled t-shirts? These handmade jersey cotton cord scarves, made by Buffalo Gal Frills, come in solids, stripes, hand-splattered and fringe… when you first see them, they look like balls of yarn, and only when they are unbound do they resemble scarves! Easy to stick in a purse or coat pocket when not being worn. They retail from between $24 and $28.

We’re already up to #8 on the BRO holiday gift series… click here to discover the other locally-made gift items.

RaChaCha is a Garbage Plate™ kid making his way in a Chicken Wing world. Since 2008, he's put over a hundred articles on here, and he asked us to be sure to thank you for reading. So, thank you for reading. You may also have seen his freelance byline in Artvoice, where he writes under the name his daddy gave him [Ed: Send me a check, and I might reveal what that is]. When he's not writing, RaChaCha is an urban planner, a rehabber of houses, and a community builder. He co-founded the Buffalo Mass Mob, and would love to see you at the next one. He represents Buffalo Young Preservationists on the Trico roundtable. If you try to demolish a historic building, he might have something to say about that. He is a proud AmeriCorps alum.

Things you may not know about RaChaCha (unless you read this before): "Ra Cha Cha" is a nickname of his hometown. (Didn't you know that? Do you live under a rock?) He's a political junkie (he once worked for the president of the Monroe County Legislature), but we don't really let him write about politics on here. He helped create a major greenway in the Genesee Valley, and worked on early planning for the Canalway Trail. He hopes you enjoy biking and hiking on those because that's what he put in all that work for. He was a ringleader of the legendary "Chill the Fill" campaign to save Rochester's old downtown subway tunnel. In fact, he comes from a long line of troublemakers. An ancestor fought at Bunker Hill, and a relative led the Bear Flag Revolt in California. We advise you to remember this before messing with him in the comments. He worked on planning the Rochester ARTWalk, and thinks Buffalo should have one of those, too (write your congressman).

You can also find RaChaCha (all too often, we frequently nag him) on the Twitters at @HeyRaChaCha. Which is what some people here yell when they see him on the street. You know who you are.
