ICYMI August 3 Homespun Modern Handmade Haven Paperie cards

ICYMI August 3

ICYMI August 3, from new cards, to jewelry, to drink accessories, our shelves are ever-changing! And we have a lot to show you this week – in case you missed it (wink).

This restock from Haven Paperie confirms that she is our spirit animal (see overalls card above). Also, her tiny cards are perfect as lunchbox notes or to attach to a gift!

Vocabulary Words

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!

Weekend Plans

For many parents, this is the last weekend before school starts. Celebrate or drown your tears with a drink this weekend! We carry Hoosier Momma bloody mary and cocktail mixes in store! Pair with new Indiana swizzle sticks from Jean Elise, and you’ve got a party.

More of a DIY-er when it comes to cocktails? Make your own bitters with our kits from Hella Cocktail Co. And find your perfect recipe with new cocktail recipe coasters from Lucid Wood. – See below.

After the drinks, get prepared for back-to-school Monday by keeping some Blue Mind coffee on tap. Then sip out of your favorite mug from Farizula Designs as the kids hop on the bus! (Hooray)

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).

ICYMI July 19 Bungaloo Art Prints at Homespun

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.

ICYMI July 13 Indiana pillows at Homespun

ICYMI July 13

ICYMI July 13 – Friday the 13th to be exact. Yet, have no fear, we’ve got your luck covered today! From new Indiana pillows to bath and body to stationery, throw superstition to the wind and shop handmade!

Last week we showed you the patriotic Indiana pillow, but we also promised there were more styles in store. And here they are! In lovely neutral tones, these gorgeously well-made pillows are just waiting to be on your couch.

ICYMI July 13 new stationery, prints, and tea towels at Homespun

Perfect Prints

New vendor, Food Family Story, sent us so many deliciously printed products we got hungry! This line is a perfect gift for the foodie. With notebooks, recipes cards, and tea towels, it’s a housewarming gift waiting to happen.

Minimal mavens will rejoice in the expanded collection from Evermore Paper Co. Lines, geometry, and pattern, in a cohesive color story, decorate the pages of this anthology. And we think this stationery is an ideal choice for the boss babe’s office.

ICYMI July 13 Food Family Story beer prints at Homespun

“Don’t Worry, Be Hoppy” -New beer prints in-store from Food Family Story.

ICYMI July 13 Aromi lip tints and Fiber and Gloss bookmarks at Homespun

Weekend Plans

If you’re anything like us, the weekend is for making the most minimal effort when it comes to our appearance. Yes, we’ve hit that age, and we’re okay with it. But, if you still need something on your face before leaving the house, may we suggest the new Glossy Lip Tints from Aromi Beauty?

These balms add a sheer pop of color to your lips (and cheeks). And the Rose Quartz color is a nice shimmery neutral that can double as a highlighter! They smell great too! And at only $14, you can buy one (or two) less things from Glossier.

And if your weekend plans also include snuggling up with your new book (because it’s too damn hot outside), you need a snarky bookmark from Fiber and Gloss. We’re partial to the “My book is better than your tablet” choice.

ICYMI July 13 Ribbon + Roving wall hangings at Homespun

Shop the weavings of local textile artist, Ribbon + Roving, during the months of July and August. As the featured in-store artist in our mini gallery space, we have a whole wall dedicated to her work! Large weavings are just $40 and small weavings are only $30! Get here and add some texture to your walls!

ICYMI July 6 prints and wall art at Homespun

ICYMI July 6

ICYMI July 6, our shelves are stocked with new vendors, new product, and we have a new featured artist in our mini gallery space for the months of July and August!

Long loved artist, Alternate Histories, is back with new goodies and old favorites.  They bring the historical to life with sci-fi fixtures and monsters – “Because everything’s better with monsters,” as they say.

And we couldn’t agree more. Look what they did below with some of our city’s most famous structures.

ICYMI July 6 Alternate Histories at Homespun

ICYMI July 6 prints from Alternate Histories at Homespun

From sci-fi propoganda posters to “Monsters of The United States,” Alternate Histories’ prints and cards make great gifts for the history buff with sense of humor.

ICYMI July 6 Grey Theory Mill at Homespun

Grey Theory Mill

Another long-time vendor and favorite in store, Grey Theory Mill, has restocked us in geometric bracelets, stamped studs, and more!

And, what do we love most about Grey Theory Mill? She sources her materials as close to home as possible. And if she can’t find something local, she ensures that the materials are sweat-shop free.

Those studs, and all of her earrings, have surgical grade A titanium posts. -Which is more hypoallergenic than sterling silver.

Just so many reasons to love this line.

ICYMI July 6 Pointelle Design Inspired Woodcraft at Homespun

Summer Solace

Find relief from the heat with new summer hair scarves from Pointelle Designs. Coordinate, or mix and match, your prints by pairing your scarf with button earrings made of the same fabric!

And for the summer Monon user, pick up the new painted sign from Inspired Woodcrafts. We see this in Dad’s den or office!

ICYMI July 6 Andria Green Jolly Good Designs at Homespun

The Power’s in the Print

Whether it’s an attractive pattern you’re looking for, or a punny quote, our vendors deliver on both.

Hand-designed and hand-printed, Andria Green has restocked us with her wall hangings, napkins, and a few prints. And Jolly Good Designs sure makes us feel jolly-good. From dog beer koozies to “Drunken Thoughts” notebooks, we can’t help but giggle over their goods.

ICYMI July 6 Ribbon and Roving at Homespun

Ribbon + Roving

For the months of July and August, you’ll be able to shop the woven collection of Ribbon + Roving. On display in our mini gallery space in store, weavings range from just $30 – $40. So, stop in to get one before they’re gone!
