ICYMI: This Week At The Shop
October 20

Cactus Soap and Beastie Boys Koozie

It’s ICYMI time for October 20th!

With only 2 more weeks left in October, we are stocking our shelves to the brim with new product for the holiday season!

Brand new vendor, Tularoo Soaps, creates bubbly works of art like the cactus soap above. Their ingredients are all natural and they only use sulfate-free, non-comedogenic bases for their soaps. And bringing it full circle, all the packaging is recyclable as well.

You won’t find a more perfect stocking stuffer than the Beastie Boys koozie from Jolly Good Designs. -Enjoyable anytime of day.

Potholders by Umbrella Girl Productions

For the Kitchen Connoisseur

We’ve been restocked on reversible printed pot holders from Umbrella Girls and when bundled together, they make a great gift for the crafty cook in your life.

The almond butter sample packs from Revival Food Co. are back, and they are definitely a treat for this fall season. You can gift them all as is, or separate into smaller gifts. -So perfect! And we can’t talk kitchen without mentioning our Hoosier Harvest cookbook restock from Farm Indiana. This book is full of recipes from Indiana Chefs, farmers, food critics, artisans, and more!

Sweet Restock at Homespun

Sweet Somethings…

We just received the biggest restock on cards from Haven Paperie and the photo above is just a sampling of some of her new designs. That “Thanks for being a great kid” card nearly had me in tears. So cute. And look at that color scheme she’s using. A+!

What’s better than chocolate? How about chocolate that comes in a cute box with a cute saying ready to give to your cute friend? That’s right, those ever so popular chocolates from Curly Girl Designs are back!

Great things come in small packages… like the new thank you and happy birthday card sets from Big Wheel Press. And AC the Cat is trying out his paws at some crafty business below. That’s totally how I look when I start projects too. Well done, again, Kate Funk.

Perler Tricks Headbands

Halloween Accessories

Have a little Stormtrooper, Pikachu, or Ninja Turtle on your hands for Halloween? Accessorize their costumes with headbands from Perler Tricks. You can find more in store -and earrings, pins, and framed art made with these throwback beads as well!

The kids can add some Halloween flare without breaking the school uniform rules with skull hairpins and necklaces from Rachel O’s and Jean Elise Toys.  Sip some spiked cider out of a skull mug from local ceramicist Corey Jefferson.  And you can’t forget to send Happy Halloween cards to the nieces and nephews across the state. -Boo cards courtesy of Haven Paperie.

Hayley also has a prominent appreciation for pastel -hence her choice of Goldendrop Garland and vegan pleather backpack from MH Leathergoods. Welcome to the team Haley – you’re killin’ it on the Sales Floor already!
