Gen Con in Indianapolis

The Indy Criterium
Also this Saturday is the Indy Criterium! We have so much great bike stuff, including these great prints by Iron Leaf Press and Jilly Jack Designs.
Saturday, August 1st from 11:30am- 2pm we will have author Ashley Petry in the store to do a book signing for her recent book 100 Things to do in Indianapolis Before You Die.
Green Laundry: Saturday, August 15th: Want to clean green while saving some green? Making your own laundry supplies is not only cheaper and better for the environment, but healthier for you and your skin. Many store-bought brands are loaded with chemicals and toxins, some of which have nothing to do with the cleansing process. Besides saving sensitive skin, many DIY laundry recipes actually clean clothes better! Learn more and sign up by clicking the link.
Candle Maker Pop-Up Bar: Saturday, August 29th: Join the Onyx Exchange for an afternoon of candle making at Homespun! Mark your calendars and stop in to make your very own 7oz. Lux candle or 10oz. Wine Bottle Candle. Mix your own scents (36 to choose from!) and create a one-of-a-kind candle!
Wire Wrapping Basics: Saturday, August 29th: Have you ever wanted to go on a gem hunt? Well, here is your chance! Rana Salame Striedinger of Salame Jewelry Designs is opening her treasure chest of gemstones for you to peruse and select from to create your own one-of-a-kind jewelry. Students will learn several wire wrapping and jewelry assembly techniques to create two unique items – students can choose to make a pair of earrings and a necklace, two pairs of earrings, or two necklaces.
