ICYMI April 20
On this week’s ICYMI April 20 blog, we’re sending out all the good vibes for spring to stick around! Cross those fingers with us and check out some of our new product and events happening in store!
Bring spring into your home with handcrafted ceramic bud vases from Linnea Campbell Ceramics. And, have you always wanted to bottle the scent of our store? Well, Onyx Exchange did that for you. You can now purchase Homespun scented candles right in our store! It’s a citrus herbal mix and we think it’s pretty spot-on!
What We’re Loving Right Now…
Handmade dreamcatchers, up-cycled baby booties, and all natural face masks, can it get better than that? (If only we had puppies and kittens in store).
Have a DIY-er in your life? You can purchase those faux leather Indiana pillows in store as-is, or you can get a kit to do it yourself! What a fun weekend day project, especially if we get another bout of cold/snow/rain (our fingers are still crossed that we don’t).
Remember those cocktail lip balm packs we showed you last week? Well, you can also buy them individually, you know, if you only like IPA’s (this girl). From beer flavors to mimosa, margarita, and more, these lip balms will be sure to make you giggle, even if they don’t have any real bubbly in them.

First Friday May-June 2018
Every month, Homespun: Modern Handmade hosts a celebration in collaboration with iDADA’s First Friday events. Our shows change every other month with various artists showcasing work in painting, illustration, photography, ceramics, and so much more.
For the months of May and June, we’ll be celebrating the new work of local artist Vanessa Monfreda. This collage series is inspired by Vanessa’s recent trip to Ecuador.
Born in Chile and spending part of her adolescence in Germany and Ecuador, Vanessa immigrated to the States with her family in the 90’s. Her diverse, multicultural background is ever present in her work and her use of up-cycled material adds another dimension to the already layered designs.
To learn more about Vanessa and her work, please visit her website at: http://
We hope to see you for First Friday in May and June!
Have a happy, handmade weekend!
