Not so much a suggestion for a missed shop, but a cooment and broader suggestion…a lot of these places need some real help with their websites or simple mentoring for their online presence. I dont necesarily have the know how of a website developer/designer but there has to be some free or cheap help out there for small businesses like these.
Forest City, Blue Bag and Lavender Farm were a few I clicked through bc they were tagged as “online”. For a couple I saw no way to purchase. For another, the home page errored out. A simple Etsy shop might be all that they need, I don’t know. But my commute to work on the rapid was my shopping time this morning and it came up empty.
Please add the Wine Spot and The Bottlehouse, both on Lee Rd. Exceptional locally owned businesses!
Ambiance, established in Cleveland in 1981. Still truly Cleveland and a local favorite for giving Date nights happy endings.
Please add Urban Calm, cultivating calm in community… Helping others create a greater sense of calm through everyday life challenges and changes. We offer holistic care, consultations, classes and community outreach.
Please add Heights Arts, another great non-profit community arts organization, also on Lee Road in Cleveland Heights!

The unbridled beauty of the Cuyahoga River running through downtown Kent has overflowed onto a new mural at 295 S. Water St. Cleveland-area artist and Kent State University adjunct professor Tim Myrick created the watercolor illustration, which depicts the changing scenes and history of the river as it runs south from Kent’s northern limits through downtown and past John Brown Tannery Park, where the infamous abolitionist once operated a tannery business.
Fiddlehead Gallery on Larchmere is a wonderful little gallery with fun and exciting finds!
Earth Philosophy is Cleveland’s Aromatherapy company that grows their own herbs. We create Wellness and Skin Care products made entirely from botanical ingredients: essential oils, herbal oils, & plant extracts. All products are handmade and fresh.

One of the most authentic Irish pubs in Cleveland, the Pride of Erin, is at W. 123rd and Lorain. Jimmy and Bridgid Campbell own and run the place, have several Guinness Perfect Pint Awards and a dandy jukebox, league darts and shuffle board. This is a straight up pub where you can watch the game or enjoy conversation. It’s not glitzy, it’s not corporate, it’s a family owned Irish pub that’s as authentic as it gets. Everybody talks bout “their favorite Irish pub” but few have been to one that isn’t some corporate umbrella corp’s idea of “Irish”. Worth a pint and and a buck in the juke. Bring your darts.
Please add Pairings, Ohio’s Wine & Culinary Experience to EAT & DRINK! We carry over 35 Ohio wines, representing wineries, winemakers and vineyards from all regions of Ohio and we recently hired an Executive Chef, Michael Lorah, to grow the culinary side of our establishment.
