In today’s economy it’s so important that we support our local merchants. Today I’m sharing some of my favorite local businesses, but don’t worry, even if you don’t live in the area you can shop them online, and you’ll want to-they’re so good!
Sanity: Located in the cute town of Chagrin Falls, Ohio, Sanity carries so many great pieces including clothes, jewelry, beauty products, gift items, and so much more plus their staff is incredibly helpful and friendly. Right now I’m loving all the cozy sweaters and fantastic loungewear (aka what I wear out!) they’re stocking. These will make the perfect gift for someone on your holiday gift list or for yourself! Shop these goodies in store or online.
THD Shoppe: I met Stella, the owner of THD Shoppe, when I was lucky enough to receive a ticket from her to a fashion show at Saks Fifth Avenue. I’d been following her on Instagram and her blog, The Hearts Delight for a while. As soon as I started talking to her I felt an immediate connection. It could be a New York thing (we both have NY roots and a strong love for the city!) or maybe it was my desire to want to raid her closet! And now we can! Stella has that very cool girl style and THD Shoppe carries exactly that-cool, chic, stylish clothes. They are so good! Use the code MICHELE15 for 15% off your order.
Evie Lou: The selection at Evie Lou is amazing. They carry some of my favorite brands and have introduced me to many new ones. Their clothes, shoes, and accessories are edgy while still being feminine and comfortable. Shop them in store or online-you’ll be glad you did!
Maplewood Boutique: A traveling boutique-how cool is that! Maplewood Boutique will not only come to you with their clothes, but they will style you and your guests at no additional cost. If you’re not looking to have a party, no worries, you can shop their clothing and accessories on their website. Either way you will find so many great clothes and accessories to choose from.
Still Point Gallery: There are three stores in the US that carry one of my favorite brands, Lurdes Bergada, and what do you know, one of this stores is 15 minutes from my house in Cleveland Heights! Yay! Still Point Gallery also carries other great brands including AMMA Design, Cynthia Ashby Collection, T/9 by Tammi Chomski, Mao Mam, and more. The owner, Kate, is wonderful as is Marisa, one of the sweetest ladies I’ve ever met. Still Point Gallery also sells home decor and beautiful photography and paintings, as well as clothing, jewelry, and accessories. Stop in and browse or visit them online.
Gai Russo: A great piece of jewelry can add so much to an outfit. Wearing something designed by Gai Russo will complete your outfit and make you feel amazing. Her designs are inspired by nature and her grandmother’s jewelry box and are truly unique and beautiful. I love how I can wear her jewelry every day, whether it’s casual with jeans or dressed up.
As you do your holiday shopping, actually whenever you’re making any purchases, keep these businesses in mind as well as the shops in your community.
