ICYMI: This Week at the Shop
November 3

It’s ICYMI November 3rd!

Yes, we’re still spinning over saying NOVEMBER. However, we’ve got our shelves packed to the brim with new product, restock, and holiday items! And speaking of holiday, how about putting together a custom gift basket in store? Those coasters above from Katydid Letterpress are the perfect addition to some local artisan food items (also found in our shop).

Get Ready for 2018

We couldn’t be approaching a new year without adding 2018 calendars to our shelves. You’ll find Indiana themed calendars, mistaken lyrics, kitchen calendars, beer-themed, and more all from TF Publishing. We even have special wrapping for these babies. Gifts done and done!

Mr. Sogs Creatures

Beloved Mr. Sogs has restocked us with their fantastical creatures and Mini Creature Kits! -Those kits are perfect for the little aspiring crafter in your life (my daughter is real into it, and she’s 7). I was delighted to see Mr. Sogs making cards and I was laughing at all the puns. You can never have too many puns.

Indiana Wall Hangings

These wooden wall hangings make a great holiday gift for the Indiana lover. You can find multiple sizes and colors from Inspired Woodcrafts on our shelves. And I’d hurry in, these go quickly!

New Vendor: Lucca Workshop

Beautiful laser cut wood products from Lucca Workshop have arrived. You can find bookmarks, hair clips, laser cut cards, and dried floral notes all from this Cincinnati, OH maker. We love getting new vendors for the holidays!

November Window Display

We’ve got our November window up (and other holiday display areas in store – I’ll be showing you those next week).  But, come take a peek at our red and mint themed table-setting and get some ideas for your holiday entertaining!

Holiday Staff Picks

It’s time for our annual Holiday Gift Guide! Our staff have compiled lists of their favorite product for the 12 people you may have to shop for this holiday season. This week we showcased our lists for Mom and Dad. -Click those links to be taken to the posts where you can read more about each product! Be on the lookout for 2 lists to go live each week leading up to Christmas!

Our Homespun Halloween

Thank you to everyone that voted and participated in our Annual Homespun Halloween Costume Contest! All of our staff did an amazing job on their costumes, but our Sales Associate, Mark took home the cake with his Frida Kahlo costume inspired by Frida Doll from La Tiendita! Go Mark!
