CLE Holiday Shopping Guide: Ape Made

7. Ape Made
This summer I went to many local pop up markets, for those of you who follow my blog you know one of my favorite summer markets is the Cleveland Flea. I first discovered Ape Made at the Cleveland Flea.This Cleveland based line of hand screened printed products features many Cleveland themed designs making it one of my favorite companies to shop. I fell in love with their “Cleveland Crest” design tank when I first ventured into their tent at the Flea and they feature many more fun Cleveland designs making them perfect stop for my CLE Holiday Gift Guide. Ape Made not only features unique clothing for adult they also feature children's wear, some gifts for the home like snow globes and aprons, and even cute tee’s for your pets. For that person who has everything a local tee or sweatshirt makes the perfect gift for anyone on your list.

6. Blackbird Fly Boutique

As a native Clevelander, the West Side Market is a destination I frequent on the weekends but little did I know just a few street away on West 28th Street is an amazing boutique called Blackbird Fly. I first discovered this boutique on Instagram and fell in love with some of their pieces they featured. When I had the opportunity to meet with Angelina Pata, owner, for my December blog I discovered there was so much more to this boutique that would make any fashion blogger, such as myself, swoon for the exclusive labels and goods she carries.

Blackbird Fly opened their doors two years ago in September 2014, what began as a jewelry line in a basement art studio has grown to a contemporary boutique with a creatively curated selection of apparel, footwear, accessories (including Angelina’s jewelry line, Linger Designs) and gifts for men, women and children. What sets this boutique apart from others in NE Ohio is some of the exclusive labels Angelina carries. These …

5. Cleveland Candle Company
Last Christmas I received a candle gift set from a close friend. The candles were locally made from the Cleveland Candle Company.  I was extremely grateful for my wonderful gift and knew I had to check out this small business for myself.
When you walk into the Cleveland Candle Co. you are met with shelves of candles with various scents to choose from,  each one making a perfect gift for someone on your gift list. What I love about candles is it's fun discovering new scents and picking out one that suits the person you're shopping for.
Not only does the Cleveland Candle Company produce and sell candles they also host Candle making and paint parties. This is a perfect excuse to get together during the holidays or anytime with your closest friends or family.
To experience all the Cleveland Candle Co. has to offer you have to check it out for yourself but here are some of my favorites that will help you check people of that holiday gift list.

Styled by Stacy CLE Holiday Shopping Guide: CLE Threads!

4: CLE Threads As you all know I am a fashionista who has lived in Cleveland all her life and just recently with my blog I’ve begun to highlight the local fashion scene, hence my inspiration for my December blog. I’m always searching out new and inspiring people. People who are are all about keeping their business and services local, this is  how I came across Kira Heeley, the owner of CLE Threads. I found her on Instagram and I am ecstatic to share this company with you.
Kira started CLE Threads in 2014. She always had a "passion for fashion" but grew up sale and thrift shopping. She started to casually Instagram her outfit photos, eventually using the hashtag "ootd” (outfit of the day), etc. She soon realized her friends and followers enjoyed her style, thriftiness, and trends. This inspired Kira to officially start CLE Threads in December of 2014. She started a free Wordpress website, and immediately scooped up her name and URL. With help from a friend in graphic desig…

3.) The Cleveland Crate Company

While researching for local retailers and designers for my December blog, I came across the Cleveland Crate Co. on Instagram. I immediately thought they would be perfect for my CLE Holiday Shopping Guide. Stacie Kavanagh, owner,  has created thoughtful gifts using refurbished weathered crates. After meeting with Stacie to learn more about her business and capture some photographs of her gift crates. I had the opportunity to hear Stacie’s story of how she got started and what she offers. It was one of the most inspiring stories of a local creator and I soon learned half of the fun of visiting local designers/retailers  for this blog was hearing their stories, and Stacie’s will truly give you some CLE pride.

About the Owner:  Stacie grew up in a long time family run wholesale golf and logo business in the Akron area, and over the years fell in love with food, design, art and anything local.  Her parents were inquisitive, creative and business minded so they…
