This Week at the Shop: August 31st

Fall Picks at Homespun

It’s September now, which means our beautiful little shop is decked out in Fall goodness, a theme we call “Get Your Fall Picks at Homespun.” We have a shiny-red-apple new window display, and everyone on staff has picked their fall essentials and labeled them with a red paper apple. We have fun here.



And our mannequin is looking cozy and stylish, as usual.


New in the Shop

Lots of new goodies on the sales floor to share with you, as usual!


Postcards by Haven Paperie made in Indy, re-stock on Hoosier Mama bloody mary mixes with new flavor, sriracha, made in Indy, Anne Holman earrings from Columbus, OH and Indiana city-themed charm bracelets from Daisy Mae Design from Lewis Center, OH.

Homespun Events & Workshops

Southern Hospitality Trunk Show and Sidewalk Sale: Thursday, September 3rd, 4-8pm: Participating in Run(317): Mass Ave.? Southern Hospitality, a brand new vendor with a lovely line of foot care products, will be hosting a trunk show in front of our store with tips for treating your post-run toes. Stop by, chat, and check out their all-natural, preventative foot care products, wrapped in a delightful southern charm.

First Friday Reception: Friday, September 4th, 6-9pm: Featuring local artist Caryn Costlow’s encaustic painting. Here her talk about her work and have some delicious refreshments.

Hand-Felted Soap: Saturday, September 5th, 11-12:30: Yummy-smelling soaps with a soft, built-in washcloth – how’s that for practical? Hand-felted soaps look beautiful, smell good enough to eat, and will take your bathtime rituals up a notch. Wrapped in soft – not scratchy! – naturally anti-fungal wool, these soaps lather fragantly, last longer than regular soaps, and provide added exfoliation to leave your skin feeling extra pampered. Over time, the wool will shrink around the soap, leaving you with a small pouch that you can cut open and use with another bar of soap. Makes a great gift!

Book Signing and Knit-In with Joan of Dark: Thursday, September 10th, 6-8pm: If you’re a Game of Thrones fan, surely you’ve daydreamed about having your own Direwolf. Joan of Dark, local knitter and author, can make that happen! Join us this evening and knit along with the author as she signs copies of her newest book, “Geek Knits.”
