How is it August Already?

Happy first week of August! Here’s all things happening in and around the shop.


Between sunny days shopping local, rearranging our store displays, and having fun at our events like Handicraft Exchange and Mass Ave’s Sidewalk Sales, we feel like August has SNUCK UP on us. Here are a few shop and community happenings as we enter the first week of the last month of summer.

In the shop: 

Our staff has been working hard jazzing up the store. No major changes, but we’ve been organizing and reorganizing, creating brand new shelf displays, and freshening up the store for an even better shopping experience. Very thankful for our teams’ flair for creative displays, and for their ability to make this HOUSESPUN a HOMESPUN. Come on in to see our progress as we make an even brighter, fresher space!

What We’re Loving: 

Leo Season: Happy Birthday to all the passionate, confident, independent LEOS! Find the perfect, unique gift for your favorite Leo in store & online.

SNACKS: We got so snacky in the store, we had to add shelves to our snack section just to fit all the salty, sweet, deliciousness we have for you! Next time you come shopping we hope you’re hungry!

TANKS: Rocking these Indiana and Indianapolis tanks as long as we can!

BACK TO SCHOOL BASICS: From elementary to grad school, we have the essentials for your best semester yet. With notebooks, planners, calendars, pencils and pencil pouches, totes and backpacks, and of course snacks and coffees we are ace-ing back to school shopping in store and online.
