Candy Kendricks has ArmCandy. No, she’s not strutting around with a piece of beefcake by her side. Candy makes “ArmCandy.” And she is the September Artist of the Month.

ArmCandy is her name for fabulous, one-of-a-kind purses, bags and clutches which she creates by hand in her spare time. As part of the Human Resources team at DeSoto Memorial Hospital and also running her boarding home, she hasn’t got a lot of spare time, but she does manage to make good use of it.
