This Week at the Shop: April 18th

This week I have for you a lovely browse through our new items, Stephanie’s What We’re Loving selection, and Homespun’s upcoming calendar. You’ll want to stay tuned to the blog this week as we have Meet Your Maker coming up on Thursday with Revival Food Co., and then an all new How-To blog that will make your mouth water!



These koozies have come to us just in time, and these really important notebooks are always useful, all from new vendor Jolly Good Designs.


Lots and lots of new t-shirts! These are just a few. From USI and Hayes and Taylor.


Lovely bright ceramic rings from Natasha J Collection.


Um. You guys. This is a real game made by the USI guys and it is kinda like dominos but hilarious and fantastic and I’m assuming extremely fun. If you are going to be part of a recreational gathering of people any time soon, you will not be remiss in bringing this with you!


I’m totally obsessed with this felt food from Lilla Barn. Look at that delicious sandwich! Also available, delectable sugar cookies and BACON. And eggs.


Dog soaps not just for the yellow ones by 407 Botanicals, ceramic cuff links and leather flower headbands by Joyful Creations, and buttons of course by USI.


I might just take this on home and start using it and see if anyone says anything. The perfect gift for your favorite human by USI.


Love the length on this leather necklace from Joyful Creations, and this wooden phone case is made by new vendor Carved.

What We’re Loving


Stephanie is new to the Homespun crew, so she’s just learning about how hard it is to actually make money working here while being constantly temped by amazing products. She picked these Woodland Fox booties by Tilly Whistle because “they would make the perfect baby shower gift for my friend with the same aesthetic in mind!” So much to buy for yourself, not to mention all the gifts… Thanks Stephanie!
