Homespun Market, featuring a wide variety of home décor and gift-type items, opened recently at 1125 Huntington Ave., in Warren.
Tamara Spahr and Candy Smith are the owners of the shop, which features handmade products from the two women as well as consignment items from a number of area artisans.

Spahr has 35 years experience in designing and making floral products. She owns Blue Poppy Design.

Smith is a veteran home décor maker and is the store’s “numbers person,” the pair note. She owns Created Décor & More.

Currently the shop has 11 other  vendors, but is looking to add more, they note.

“We have 11 and we are talking to a few more. We are looking to grow,” Smith says.

The shop is open Wednesday and Friday afternoon from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The shop phone number is 375-3200.
