New vendor, Pneu Paper, creates beautifully designed cards featuring rare and surprising words! We won’t lie, we didn’t know half of these, but we love that you can learn something new with each card. And don’t worry, the definitions and inside salutation can be found on the back!

Fan Favorites

We love keeping the things YOU love in store, like illustrations by Mab Graves and the popular Indiana necklaces from Deesum Designs. We are, however, running low on those Manners tees from Bad Knees T’s. So, if you want one, you better get here this weekend before they’re gone! -But if they are, that “Cats of the Internet” mobile will be here for you instead.

What We’re Loving Right Now

While most love cards reek of sentiment, have no fear as we’ve got admiration cards for the non-mushy of heart. From bone puns, to Benedict Cumberbatch innuendos, Prince, and more, our card vendors got your back.

If you’ve been struggling to find your zen during this Mercury-in-retrograde or new-moon or whatever-is-going-on time, stop in to pick up some handmade incense and chakra room sprays. Then do some retail therapy with gemstone jewelry -that you can also use during your meditation. It’s all going to be okay.

Your house has enough outlets for all those nightlights above. They make great gifts too for the pop culture lover! -And they’re going fast!

Small amounts of sparkle your thing when it comes to jewelry? Then you need to come in and pick up an eco-resin ring from Sloane Jewelry Design. Available in multiple colors and styles, these babies have gold and silver flakes suspended in the resin. And at just $33, you won’t feel bad about shopping for yourself (not that we ever really do lol).

Please read our FAQ below for further information!

Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?

This workshop is open to ages 12 and up, however, cocktails only available to those with valid ID’s 21 years +

Why is this Crafternoon more expensive than the Crafternoons held in the past?

While we try to keep our Crafternoons around $15-20, the supplies for this class are much more expensive. The materials that we use for most of our other classes (yarn, clay, paint) last us a few classes worth, however, the materials for this class will be single-use.

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

Free parking is available on weekdays only after 5:30pm and all day on weekends in the lot behind the Trailside Building. Overnight parking is never available. There are also 25 free street spaces along the street behind the Trailside building. Otherwise, metered parking is available along Mass Ave. Please adhere to posted signage.

What can/can’t I bring to the event?

All supplies are included for this workshop! You are welcome to bring drinks and snacks if you are the noshy type. This is a private event so feel free to BYOB.

Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?

operations (@) homespunindy (.) com

Is my registration/ticket transferrable?

Please be sure to purchase your tickets for the workshop at least 48 hours in advance, as the workshop needs a minimum number of attendees to run. If the minimum is not reached tickets will NOT be sold at the door and any previously sold tickets will be refunded in full. Tickets are otherwise non-refundable unless at least 72 hours notice is given.

Plants and Rocks

With the naturalist trend in full swing, stop in to find the goods that’ll keep you on level.

Crazy plant mom? Us too. Find the cactus and monstera leaf earrings of Grey Theory Mill on our jewelry wall. And yes, that cactus plant is real (and for sale too).

The Bungaloo

The Bungaloo is a one-man talent out of Denver, CO. And, being from Denver, it makes sense that he’s clearly inspired by nature (and we love it). Each piece above measures 16×20 and runs at just $25.00. -A bargain for something certain to make an impact on your walls.
