It may have been freakishly warm this week, but cold weather is right around the corner, and that means one thing: new accessories.

If you're in need of something new, head to the Clover Market. The traveling open-air market will be in Bryn Mawr on Sunday. Along with the usual vintage pieces, antiques, jewelery, and clothing, the Clover Market features food trucks, kids activities, and live entertainment. Can't make it this weekend? The Clover Market will be back Nov. 6 on the Main Line.

While you're thinking chilly thoughts and walking down Bryn Mawr Avenue, stop by the Wild Mantle booth. Think of Wild Mantle as a scarf/hood hybrid, made in the United States with a sustainable mind-set. Narberth native and Wild Mantle designer Avi Loren Fox funded the project from a Kickstarter campaign that raised almost $40,000 to get her product off the ground.

Wild Mantle pieces are made in several different fabrics, from merino to alpaca, all at different price points. The Wild Minky's shell and liner are made with Minky fleece and are the most affordable of Fox's line. Fox's Wild Mantle also makes capes and ponchos.
