If you’ve got a birthday or other gift-giving occasion coming up where the recipient likes things that are offbeat, handcrafted or amusing, head over to Salty Not Sweet Boutique in Ohio City. The store describes itself as “a handmade boutique with a bit of vintage,” which captures its specific flavor. They look for small entrepreneurs making gifting items like soaps and lotions, jewelry, candles, and ceramics. Their strength is their greeting cards with messages that lack the flowery sentiments found in mass-produced cards. Rather they’re often biting, ironic or just plain funny.
