A New Look & New Hours for the Store!

We’re busy getting ready for the holidays, both at home and at the store, and we wanted to let you know about our seasonal hours and new displays.

New hours
Homespun is now open seven days a week through the end of the year. We are open Sundays through Thursdays from 11am-7pm, and Fridays and Saturdays from 10am-8pm. In January, we will resume being closed on Mondays.
New displays
We spent a full day installing new fixtures and reset nearly the entire store this fall and we’ve added a whole lotta new vendors – about 20 over the past two months alone – with more to come before December. The new layout allowed us to move all of the baby and children’s items together, create a proper space for all of our books, and increase the amount of apparel we can handle. We must say, it’s looking pretty darn good in here!

Hoosier Beer Lovers Shirt A Brick

The first week of May was a good one for Alex Janeczek of The Brick Shirt House. He became a new father and he found out that one of his t-shirt designs was featured in both an Indianapolis Convention & Visitors Association publication and Indianapolis Monthly’s City Guide. These tees are flying but Alex is hustling to keep us in stock. Come pick one up – his family could use the extra cash right now!
