It's no secret that we love Cleveland.

In fact, we think the city is pretty damn cool, and our local shops are a big part of our city's coolness. So, let's keep them going and give them our support. After all, it's been documented that for every dollar you spend at local shops, more of that money stays invested in the community than if you were patronizing a big box shop.

We've compiled a list of our favorite shops in NEO -- including everything from coffee shops and book stores, to record shops, toy stores and places that defy clear-cut categorization.
