This Week at the Shop: August 8th

Some lovely, some funny, some practical, some yummy. Great new items and events coming up this week at the shop.



Restock from 407 Botanicals, trust me, you won’t be disappointed with that muscle soak.


New vendor Bad Touch Pottery brings us these bright and lovely vessels, delicious local preserves from Home Ec., a brand new issue of Commercial Article is on the shelves, and I love these beautiful wooden step stools from new vendor Red Barn Collective.


Amazing new pennants from Hook and Loop.


Cute display of our plushies and print by Laura George on new shelving by Red Barn Collective.


I want all of these in my hair, all of the time: new brass hair forks from kFroet and new earrings, too.

Gift Baskets


We’re so good at these! If I do say so myself.

First Friday Exhibition, Jake Lee: Friday, September 2nd, 6-8pm: To say Jake Lee is a man of many talents wouldn’t be an understatement or an overstatement, it would simply be accurate. Jake is a designer, curator, entrepreneur, and mixed media artist based in Indianapolis, Indiana. This series “Sucker Punch” explores the world of mass media and the imagery it chooses to display. Jake constructs his work by using type, imagery and iconic images. He enjoys the process of building layers from a variety of different mediums such as collaging, drawing, painting, image transfers and silk screening on wood blocks. Jake says he tries to convey a narrative story to the viewer that illustrates his feelings and his struggle with how media and advertising are used to shape society’s concepts of beauty, life, and passion. Jake also curates a gallery called The Attic in the Murphy Building in Fountain Square, Indianapolis. It is open to the public every First Friday during the IDADA Art Walks. Jake also operates his own t-shirt venture called Made In The Square which harnesses the distinct attitude of Fountain Square, Indiana. His work will be showing at Homespun September – October 2016.

Candle Maker Pop-Up Bar w/ The Onyx Exchange: Saturday, September 24th, 11am-4pm: Join the Onyx Exchange for a day of candle making at Homespun! Mark you calendars and stop in to make your very own 7oz. Lux candle or 11oz. Wine Bottle Candle! Have fun mixing your own scents to create something totally you! No registration required for this Homespun event. Candles take about 2 hours to cure. Feel free to hang around the Ave and shop, or you can leave and come back later to pick up your candle.
