It with mixed emotions that I write this post. My dear friend is closing her fabulous mecca of home accessories and unique furniture finds Stash Style in Chagrin Falls. The antique store and sweet shop has been nestled on Main Street across from the Popcorn Shop for over six years and has decided to move on to bigger and different initiatives.
Finds from her store helped furnish almost every room in my home including a behind the couch table, an outdoor dining set, numerous end tables, vintage linens, vases, frames, the list goes on and on.
This Saturday she is hosting a massive EVERYTHING IN THE STORE IS 50% MOVING SALE. Please go and buy your Stash Style finds or I am sure I will get roped into packing up a box truck and hauling it back to the west side. Though the day is bitter sweet I like to think of it as celebration of one woman’s dream of owning her own store. (We’ve all dreamt it.)
Plans for the future? A large barn sale in Rocky River is in the works for the first weekend in May, pencil it in as I’m sure it will be divine.
Hope to see everyone on Saturday, cheers to new ventures, cheers to change!

Hello Friday! Oh how I’ve missed you since last Friday. :) It’s been too too long.
I have so many things on this weekends schedule and can’t wait to share some of my ideas with each of you! I think the onset of cooler temps and back to school has made me yearn to switch over my closet from bright & cheery summer to warm & cozy fall…but as all Clevelanders know….we MUST resist until at least mid-September. So while I wait….how about what is fun going on in our fearless city this weekend?
> Feel like taking a drive? In love with Max and the rest of the Where the Wild Things cast? Drive to downtown Kent as they show the movie on an outdoor screen…starts at dusk, should be fun for all! FREE
> There are LOTS of bike rides this weekend. Feel like hanging with a bunch of graphic designers? Head to the towpath this Saturday for AIGA’s ride. Feel like filling your belly with warm grilled cheese? Don’t miss out on Melt’s first fundraising ride this Sunday. If farms & barns are your thing visit the picturesque Cuyahoga Valley National Park this Sunday!
> I saw the first slightly disturbing movie, The Girl with the Dragon tattoo…but sorta like a car wreck where you can’t look away, I am very intrigued to see the second part film in the three part series. The Girl Who Played With Fire, showing at Cedar Lee.
> Get your last few wears of those summer sundresses, and if you are looking for a few extra summer something’s, stop by Room Service for their 60% off summer apparel sale!
On a side note, I can’t tell you how much I LOVE living in Lakewood and would like to thank Travel + Leisure Magazine for the HUGE shout out! “Lakewood : Coolest Suburb Worth a Visit!
And last…for those of you that do find yourself at the mall this weekend stocking up on back to school clothes…pick up this short for yourself. EVERYONE in Cleveland should have one. In fact I think that as a tax payer, we should just get one free in our mail some evening, now wouldn’t that be amazing? If you can’t wait for GAP to maybe send you one as a good Cleveland citizen…then make sure to pick yours up soon. I hear they are flying off the shelves…. Love yOUR city!!!
Hello my dear i heart cleveland readers…
I am oh so sorry for being a delinquent poster this week. My work has been super busy and on the side I have been purging my home for this weekend’s “tag sale.” It’s really no excuse except that I just wanted to say hello and wish you all a very wonderful Cleveland weekend.
As always, there are SO MANY things we could get ourselves into, but here are just a few…
- A dark & stormy cocktail on the patio
(if the rain holds up!)
- Prepare for the big MOVIE
by renting the entire series!
- SAVE at Whole Foods
(I’m not joking, 2-4pm on Saturdays)
- Swing by Room Service
to see the Bike Art show she has on exhibit. (see photo)

I haven’t actually been to this Spaces Gallery event, but I’ve heard about it for many many years, and this time…it’s time to check it out!
This is how Spaces is promoting the party, and I couldn’t have put it any better…I love their writer, whomever it is?
“Looking to add to your art collection without breaking the bank? How about fulfilling your undying urge to accessorize? Or maybe you just want to party whilst being surrounded by beautiful things. Aside from attending one of the coolest annual parties in town, you can take home fresh art on the spot while supporting your favorite artist and art space. Profits from this event benefit the participating artists and SPACES. Can you think of a better way to support a cause while having fun shopping?”
“Over one hundred regional artists (all members supporting SPACES’ mission) will exhibit and sell paintings, photography, drawings, prints, ceramics, sculpture, jewelry, handbags, textiles, videos, and much more. Meet and mingle with over 500 of your closest friends on opening night as you enjoy art for all different tastes, music, and food from your favorite neighborhood restaurants.”
Hope to see everyone there!!! Admission is $5 for guests at the door, Free for members.
After a winter whirlwind of a week I am looking to Cleveland for weekend fun. It’s supposed to be warm so the snow will melt a bit, perfect wellie weather…get outside, wear your sunglasses, soak up the cool sunshine. Enjoy.
Here is what’s on my tentaive weekend “agenda” …what’s on yours?
> A wild after party (because I couldn’t get tickets to the big show?)
> a trip to the Market for …Ohio City Pasta (and apricots for baking)
> Unique Thrift has a sale…until 1:00pm
> a bit of Eric Carle at Playhouse Square
> a 4-5pm free spinning class
> a late night night happy dinner
> go Perogies for breakfast

Looking for the perfect papazahn or a set of pots to pans to take back to school? Look no further than the ginormous city-wide yard sale in Ohio City this weekend. Looks like there will be something for everyone. They are über organized, as the detailed map of all participating sale locations will show.
Happening throughout the West Side neighborhood, the event runs from 9-5 on Saturday and 10-4 on Sunday.
Economy got your “beauty-budget” down? Had to cut out the fancy highlights in exchange for a bottle of “sun-in?” Your nails are looking chippy and could use a little TLC? Well, have got a few specials for you?
Stylist Barbara Fazio has extended her summer special offers to all “I heart cleveland” readers and I think your bank account will be happy too!
Located inside the Winton Place, you will find the sleek and sassy new space, perfect for a relaxing $40 Manicure AND Pedicure combo. Yes, that’s right, you heard me right, $40 for BOTH!!! That’s a steal, at most places isn’t it like $60 & up? Call today as this offer is sure to fill up fast! (216.529.6050)
And other one of B’s specials is what she calls the “makeubetter” this fun girly offering includes a consultation discussing your personal needs for a desired look. A haircut and styling lesson on the proper use of product and tools will follow. Also included in the session is a makeup “application” and eyebrow design (pluck, pluck, pluck!!!). You will leave b·fazio salon with before and after photos and the knowledge to help you re-create your new look. This service usually would cost you around $160, but for you…there currently is a $40 discount and you can spend the afternoon with Miss B for all of $120. It’s not pennies, but it sure is a deal.
So clean out your attic, have you garage sale on Thursday and go see B next Friday with your earnings! For more information give her a shout! THANKS B, I am scheduling soon!
