ICYMI: This Week At The Shop:
September 29th

It’s ICYMI time for the week of September 29th! The last week of September. Deep breaths. Deep breaths.

Okay, we have a bevy of beautiful goods to show you! For example, check out the edgy, modern line from Grey Theory Mill. Patina, brass, and bead come together to form this ethically sourced collection (all the earring posts are made with grade A surgical titanium for sensitive ears too).

Add a little danger to your wardrobe this fall season with Solder & Sage. I’m gushing over that oversized triangle necklace. Her collection has everything from hairpins to brooches to earrings. With jewelry, it’s okay to be a little dramatic sometimes.

Stop, Hammer time

Remember those clever baby onesies from Paper Elm Designs? Well, they come in toddler and youth sizes too. Attitude not included, but probably just comes naturally.  More designs can be found in store!

Megan’s World

What has our Inventory Manager, MK, been up to lately you ask? The answer is everything. She has been doing everything. And here she is receiving a huge order from People for Urban Progress. Look at those new bags! Bringing out the big guns for holiday you guys.


Have a puzzle party, or just scratch some things off your Christmas list with this restock from Tree Hopper Toys.  This toy line is both durable, safe, and designed with the contemporary family in mind. There is so much more in store, and I’ll be showing you something from them each week for the next month most likely!

Daily Self Love

With the holidays coming up, if you’re anything like me, you’ll be running around catering to lists, recitals, and freaking out over what you’re bringing to what dinner. Slow down with Daily Self Love worksheets from School of Life Design. Our staff has been enjoying filling them out in store, and I think you’d enjoy them too.

 Midwest-centric

You know that about half of our vendors are local, but did you also know that the majority of our other vendors are local to the Midwest? Keepin’ it in the family y’all.

We’ve been stocked with new candle scents from local favorites The Onyx Exchange. The Rosemary Pepper one smells like CHRISTMAS! And while you’re making your house smell wonderful with a new candle, you can be drying your dishes with new screen printed towels from Kate Brennen Hall. Yes, those are puppy faces. And yes, there’s quite the selection in store.

More hints for Christmas, the fabric button earrings from Pointelle Designs fit neatly into a stocking, and it wouldn’t take you long to wrap up one of those Indy Writes Books anthologies from Indy Reads. -All the proceeds from the purchase of the books help fund adult literacy programs.

A Few Of Our Favorite Things…

This week our Assistant Shift Manager, Grace, showed us a few of her favorite things around the shop. Holding a BFA in sculpture from Herron School of Art & Design, the love of pattern runs deep with Grace. Each piece chosen contains an element of repetition. -From the Laura Berger print, to the Tree Hopper Puzzle, to the LM Products clutch, each item is definitively Grace.
