We love shopping. And while we appreciate the convenience of shopping malls in Canton, Akron and Cleveland, our true passion is discovering local spots with unique pieces you just won't find at a mall. Whether it is jewelry, edibles, drinkables, home-goods or furniture, we'll showcase it here. Don't put it past us to throw in some obvious spots, but we'll make it worth your while.

Not Your Grandma’s Craft Show

Not Your Grandma’s Craft Show

Does Black Friday (Pre-Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Etc.) make you want to rip your hair out, cry in horror and drink copious amounts of booze? Yeah, me too.

If you want to avoid the UGG wearing, Coach purse-toting monsters who are equipped with a bad attitude and shortage of manners at Wal-Mart – you’re in luck because we’re surrounded by talented artisans in this area who gather to host shopping events for the public.… Read More

Etsy-Chic Finds at Modern Vintage in Hartville

Etsy-Chic Finds at Modern Vintage in Hartville

I’ve never considered myself much of a ‘Hartville gal.’

For years when I would think of Hartville, Ohio – admittedly a little (a lot?) stereotypically – I’d imagine women in Quacker Factory outfits buying country crafts and tchotchkes galore. As you may have gathered, I do not like Quacker Factory outfits, country crafts, or tchotchkes galore.… Read More

Crafty Mart: Akron’s Living Etsy Shop

Crafty Mart: Akron’s Living Etsy Shop

Browsing Etsy is fun, but it's usually just that for me, browsing. However, when you put those shops on a table and allow me to pick items up, smell them (promise I'm talking about soaps and body butters... maybe), feel them and get caught up in the excitement, I buy, buy, buy. Perfect business concept! The creators of Crafty Mart just so happen to be savvy, and have smarty pants because they did just that. Read More! Read More

Urban Treasure Hunting at The Cleveland Flea

Urban Treasure Hunting at The Cleveland Flea

We have a little Mother’s Day tradition in our household. Futureman and the boys give me a day where I set the agenda – food, shopping, whatever I want to do – no complaints from them allowed. I LOVE THIS DAY, mostly because it involves exactly zero stops at Game Stop, but also because I get to watch their amazement at how much eating, shopping, and additional eating I can pack into a single day.… Read More

Birchbox: Exploring High-End Beauty From Home

Birchbox: Exploring High-End Beauty From Home

Can we please shout from the roof tops that this "box of goodies" trend is our favorite? Also an idea Collyn and I had two years ago and never followed through with because we are.... idiots, apparently. Anywho, Birchbox - we love this! Here's the concept: a box is sent to you on a monthly basis for $10, shipping included, and it contains samples (around 5 or so) of high-end beauty products. Read More

Target Deals at Marc’s Closeout Prices

Target Deals at Marc’s Closeout Prices

Like many of my fellow shopper-friends, I have a “Target problem.” You know how it goes: you go in for Just One Thing and come out with a $137 bill. Really, how is one to pass up that cute chevron shirt for $17.99 or those limited-edition Missoni for Target flats for $34.99 or that wood serving tray on clearance for $9.98? While all fun (and occasionally useful) items, still, $137 is $137. Read More

Mid-Century Modern: The Bomb Shelter, Akron

Mid-Century Modern: The Bomb Shelter, Akron

Both Lisa and I are totally obsessed with mid-century modern everything. With the era’s clean lines and timeless appeal, what’s not to love? Unfortunately, we are not alone in this obsession, and prices tend to reflect this. (Curse you, hipsters!)

So, when I stumbled upon Mandi’s blog, I was all too excited to see her Canton home full of mid-century-yet-budget-friendly goodness.… Read More
