Homespun’s Fifth Anniversary Celebration!
July 9, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 9:00 pm
Homespun: Modern Handmade is five years old today!
Birthed from the INDIEana Handicraft Exchange, central Indiana’s first contemporary craft fair, Homespun: Modern Handmade first opened in Irvington on July 9th, 2010.
Store owners Neal and Amanda have worked hard over the last five years, and it shows: what began as a light-filled, 850-square-foot storefront on Washington Street has evolved into a nearly 2,000-square-foot space on Mass Ave.
They’ve expanded the store’s product line from roughly 75 vendors to over 350 with artists from all over the US and Canada, offering a range of jewelry, apparel, home goods, bath & body products, art of all sorts, and artisanal foods. Homespun: Modern Handmade has played host to a variety of workshops, tastings, demos, and speakers, as well as a monthly First Friday gallery space.
Join us in celebrating this milestone anniversary as we kick off a four-day celebration with appearances by Mile Square Coffee’s Cafe Mobile and Calliope Sno-balls, who will be parking their trucks in front of our store today. We’ll also be kicking off an Instagram contest running today through Sunday, July 12th – simply visit our store and take a picture of yourself with your fantastic purchase(s), post it to Instagram, and include the hashtag “#homespun5year”. We’ll draw five random winners during our staff celebration party on Sunday, July 12th- prizes will include some sweet Homespun items!
