Cleveland, Ohio


Room Service
This store in the Gordon Square Arts District of the Detroit-Shoreway neighborhood has a little bit of everything – it’s like an extremely well-curated miniature general store with a  whimsical, modern aesthetic. In addition to a variety of unusual homegoods and stationary, I keep an eye out for photographs and prints by local artists and the beautiful pieces of vintage furniture that show up from time to time.

Loganberry Books
It’s best to give yourself at least an hour when you visit Loganberry. Room after room is lined floor to ceiling with beautifully organized used books. Comfortable, squashy chairs and sofas beckon from the corners.

   You can browse through everything from gilt-backed first editions from the 1800s to small-press rarities to vintage magazines in plastic sleeves. The children’s section is especially wonderful – it’s an amazing resource for anyone interested in illustration or design.

The staff is extremely friendly and knowledgeable, and they can help you find just about anything. In addition to all the books, the store houses a bindery and a small gallery, and hosts readings and concerts on a regular basis.

Murray Hill Schoolhouse
The Murray Hill Schoolhouse, located in Little Italy, has a small but wonderful collection of shops:
* Juma Gallery: This spot specializes in hand-crafted pieces by North American artisans.
* Sobella Paper Boutique: In addition to a generous selection of lovely cards, I like their sheets of specialty wrapping papers.
* Anne Van H.: This boutique is curated by local designer Anne Van Hauwaert, and in addition to her own creations features beautiful and unusual accessories, like printed featherweight cashmere scarves edged with pom-poms and shoes by Faryl Robin.
* Industrie: One of my favorites. It’s two wee spaces with an ever-changing mix of casual, luxurious things – everything from Frye boots to Conroy + Wilcox jewelry mixed in with Hudson Bay blankets and double-faced cashmere coats to woven rag rugs and custom floral arrangements and small waxed bags of Swedish Fish.
