This Week at the Shop: October 17th

Check your calendar, it’s calendar season! And if your calendar didn’t make you smile every month this year, it’s time you came down to Homespun and perused our selection. We’ve got lots to show you today, and many more to come.




New from local designers TF Publishing.


Included: monthly color therapy time. From Amy Rice Art.


Insta-costume for just $25 bucks. Get one of these eye popping and beautifully crafted paper masks from Questionable Press. Lots of critters to choose from.


Color Me Indy coloring book by Grant Thomas. Shiny Indiana tee by Decorative Design Works. Pretty little spoons and matching trinket dishes restocked from Sarahmics.


I don’t even know if these are new but these magnet sets from Exit343 are too awesome not to post. Rappers and the boys from Gilmore Girls (except we need a Luke!).


Creepy creatures on pillows from DRock Press, temporary tattoos by Lovewild Design, the most adorable little penguin books by Yellow Door Publishing, designed and printed in the USA, and these cute little dishes/ planters are the best! By Sunflower Studios.

Coming Up

Pinot & Paws, Paint Your Pet: Thursday, October 27th, 6-8pm: Pets. They’re the family we choose. If you’re a dog or cat (or any animal, really) person, you understand the important role pets play in our lives. For many of us, our beloved pets are like our children, loving us unconditionally and loyally. Here’s your chance to immortalize your beloved Fido or Whiskers: instructor Deanna Leonard of Arcadian Design will be hosting a “Paint Your Pet” workshop at our store. Students will create a portrait from a favorite photograph with acrylic paint to cherish for years to come. Plus, we’ll have snacks and wine on hand for a full artist experience.

Candle Maker Pop-Up & Mass Ave Midnight Shopper: Friday, November 18th, 5pm-12am: Tonight’s the perfect night to get a jump start on your holiday shopping! Many Mass Ave merchants will be open until midnight to allow prudent patrons a chance to enjoy all of Indy’s best shops and boutiques. Plus, it’s the perfect opportunity to give back to the community during the season of giving! Here at Homespun we dedicate a significant portion of our donation efforts to Coburn Place Save Haven and Project Home Indy, two local non-profits dear to our hearts. Bring in needed items for Coburn Place and/or Project Home Indy and receive 10% off your entire purchase!

Small Business Saturday: Saturday, November 26th, 9am-9pm: The holiday shopping season is officially upon us, and shopping small means big support for independently-owned shops like ours (and for our community!). Homespun: Modern Handmade will be opening early today (9am) to give our fantastic customers early access to our brimming-with-holiday-inventory sales floor. In fact, the first ten customers will receive Swag Bags, one of which will be a SUPER Swag Bag with a high-dollar item from a participating Mass Ave store.

Giving Tuesday: Tuesday, November 29th, 10am-8pm: Make a difference with your shopping today at Homespun. Bring in items from the lists below and receive 10% off your store purchase today. Donated goods will benefit Coburn Place of Indianapolis, a transitional program to help survivors of domestic abuse and Project Home Indy, a local non-profit program aiming to break the cycle of poverty by serving up to five teen mothers and their children, helping them reach the path to self-sufficiency.

Yelp Bazaar: Thursday, December 11th, 6-10pm: Homespun is once again part of Yelp’s annual pop up shopping party with more than 120 local businesses! Check-in on the Yelp app for your Yelp Shop Local tote because this hefty list of local businesses is certain to fill your hands!

See ya next week, friends!
