The temperatures may be droppin’ but our shelves are hoppin’. – See what we did there? We’re starting a new ICYMI: This Week at the Shop blog full of new product, sales floor happenings, and store events!
I’m Amanda D., resident Operations Manager (product photographer, social media slinger, event/gallery coordinator, and all things Homespun-related). I’ll be your new weekly author, compiling all the things I’ve photographed and posted in the last week (like the new city flags above from People for Urban Progress), right here, so you can catch up on your weekly Homespun digest!
So here you go, ICYMI: This Week at the Shop: September 8th! Enjoy!
I don’t know about you, but this chill in the air has me revving up my bathtub. Good thing we’ve been restocked with new bath and body products from favorite vendors like Bitchstix, Pure Grace Soaps, and Brooklyn Candle Studio. Yes, that’s a cupcake bath bomb. Someone get that water running stat.
You know I couldn’t resist a good ol’ fashioned fall themed chalkboard. And an Indy one too, of course. These are always fun for me to do, especially when the whole staff gets together to help me come up with our handy little slogans. You can thank Key Holder, Claire, for the awesome “Back Homes(spun) again in Indiana” idea. High fives to Claire!
Did you know that about half of our 400 vendors in store are local to Indianapolis or Indiana? Did you also know I feature my own arms and hands in a lot of our social media photos – ha.
Pro tip: that B. Happy Peanut Butter is absolutely divine on a s’more. You can thank me later. New leather Indiana cuffs from Indypsire Art have arrived, along with a new Pride Lego Art design from Smitten by Kat. Show off to your out-of-town friends with the Indianapolis City Guide from Printtext. That black cover is limited edition, so you should come buy it now.
We had an AMAZING turnout during our most recent First Friday gallery opening featuring the work of IPS Center for Inquiry School 2 Art Club! The students created work about what Indy and Love, both, mean to them. After recent world events, the students decided to donate 100% of the proceeds from the works sold to non profit agencies. If this doesn’t warm your heart, I don’t know what will.
The remaining work will be on display through September and October. Come support these talented, compassionate students and the causes they care about so much!
You still have time to get knotty with us in our upcoming Macrame Workshops with guest instructor, Sarah Harste! Sarah is a Columbus based fiber artist who loves all things woven! She’ll be hosting two workshops in store on Saturday September 23rd. Take one or take both! For more information and tickets for the Macrame Plant Hanger class, click here. And for the Macrame Wall Hanging class, here. Get your tickets while you still have time!
That concludes our ICYMI: Week of September 8th! Keep up with our blog so you don’t miss out and be sure to keep following us on social media – where you can see things in (nearly) real-time!
We hope to see you in the shop soon!
