ICYMI: This week at the shop: October 6th

It’s ICYMI October 6th edition!

And hello, October! Bring on the darker colors, new bags, boots, sweaters, and of course – Halloween decorations!

Fall is also the perfect time to go camping, and luckily we have this awesome restock from People for Urban Progress in store! Those dopp kits will nicely hold all of my camping toiletries and then I can go back to being a boss lady at work with my Executive tote bag (fits a laptop perfectly)!

And we don’t just have dopp kits and tote bags in store. PUP has given us the crème de la crème of restocks. You’ll find clutches, wallets, iPad covers, and more. Using reclaimed materials like Super Bowl Banners, RCA Dome ceiling fabric, and seat belts from abandoned vehicles, PUP repurposes fabric that would otherwise be taking up space in a landfill.

These really are goods for good.

Tree Hopper Toys keeps delivering in the cuteness department!

Remember those Lincoln Logs you played with in the 90’s? Well now your kiddos or grandkiddos get the updated version! -They can even put a little Hoosier National Forest sign outside of their cabin!

And I know we’re talking fall and Halloween, but, yes, we do already have Christmas ornaments out on our shelves. We’re not really sorry, because those Indy ornaments are just awesome and so well made. Since I’ve already brought up Christmas, I recommend stuffing a few Match Stacks games into the wee one’s stockings. -There’s even a Hipster version!

Megan’s World

She’s still processing orders and taking names (all this product touches her hands first)! Here Megan is laying out a new card restock from Lacelit. Megan, you really are “Tofu and rice and everything nice.”

MK takes her card ordering seriously. You can thank her for these cute new card sets from An Open Sketchbook. And why not put the best gift together by pairing an astrology card from A Quartzy Life with new alchemy jewelry from Solder & Sage. Look what Megan did for you!

A Few of Our Favorite Things…

If you’ve ever been into our store and had the pleasure of meeting Claire, you probably fell in love with her instantly. Just like I did. This magical women shared some of her favorite products with me this week and you’ll probably love them too.

Often drawing mandalas in her spare time, Claire loves symmetry, which is why that wall hanging from Andria Green speaks to her. Cozy. Coffee. Claire. -Her catch-phrase if she had one, and that pour-over from Sarahmics fits right in. Following a recent cross-country RV trip, Claire wants to one day have mountains outside her bedroom window (print by Laura Berger). Me too, Claire. Me too.

It’s beginning to look a lot like… HALLOWEEN!

Most definitely my favorite holiday, our Halloween window displays are always my favorite to design. And this year I went with a kiddo-candy-bonanza theme, and I love it. We have handmade costumes, felt masks, Halloween dresses, and more in store for all your spooky needs!

Thanks to all the crafty, artsy teammates that helped me complete this display, as well. You guys are so SWEET. -Get it?
