This Week at the Shop: November 16th

I don’t want to sound too cheesy… or like some low-budget theme park TV commercial… but it’s all so exciting… C’MON DOWN, THERE’S SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE HERE AT HOMESPUN!

It’s just true. Artists, chefs, fashionistas, babies, kids, readers, decorators and more. I can’t help it. I’m just naturally enthused by it all, and I hope you will be too. Lots and lots coming through our doors these days and I can’t wait to share it all with you!



DIY Papercrafting Kits from Paper Acorn and beautiful new crayons from Art 2 The Extreme.


Brand new vendor Lonesome Traveler brings us ties, western ties, bow ties, and pocket squares in the best-est fabric patterns. Also, holiday baby leggings by Vivie & Ash and suspender/ bow tie sets for the older kids from Bohemian Babies.


Beautiful handprinted linens just in from Celina Mancurti: bread bad, produce bags and napkins in a variety of colors. Also, how great are these new jewelry hangers by Piece of Shards?


That’s right. I selfied. All to show off this awesomely unique hand-knotted necklace by Lois and Ruby. New tee by United State of Indiana. Prints for a gardener, a weight lifter, a runner and more from Jodi Lynn’s Emporium of Doodles. Great re-stock on tea from Hugo Tea.


I told you there was a lot! Beautiful new rings from Sloane Jewelry Design. Mugs by Mudlove Pottery in collaboration with United State of Indiana. These mugs are handmade, microwave save, dishwasher safe, and each one will provide one week of clean water to someone in need! New line of lotions and soaps from The Soiled Dove. Love this beautiful packaging and the scents are lovely.


Don’t forget about our gift basket service! We’ll put together the perfect arrangement for your staff or special event. Love these holiday themed baskets on display. Home glasses from United State of Indiana and beautiful, large gift tags by Design with Heart Studio.


Oh boy. Here come all the ornaments! Adorable little sewn felt pillows are by Naughty Pig Studios, crocheted stars by Part Time Hooker and wooden laser cut origami crane ornament by Havoc Designs.


Bird stamped ornaments also by Naughty Pig Studios, and the ubiquitous DOMEFLAKE from PUP has arrived, 2015 edition!


And Lady. How is she doing in the midst of all this holiday cheer? Awesome, of course and very optimistic, too, in this new long sleeved design from United State of Indiana. Beautiful super-soft cowl by Knot a Geek. Lovely table by Uncle Buddy’s Homestead and turned wood by Scrap Cycle.
