This Week at the Shop: March 28th

One word this week… PICKLES. We just got pickles from Indiana Pickle Co. and they have WHISKEY IN THEM. I can’t think of a better reason to have a picnic. Crisp, cold, delicious pickles on a hot day! Just imagine.

If you’re able to continue walking past the pickle shelf, we have lots of other beautiful products, all delicious in their own ways, waiting to make your day. Check it out below, and take a look at what’s coming up on the Homespun schedule. Also, we’re hiring!

What We’re Loving

Amanda D., our beloved Manager who will be leaving us soon (see below) is making her first and last contribution to our new segment, What We’re Loving. These “Hand & Dish” towels from Just A Jar are loved by many. Amanda loves that they are “contemporary, minimally instructional, and in your face. Perfect additions to my kitchen aesthetic and culinary attempts.”
