In The 216 gift shop, which offers locally and Ohio made art and handmade products by local artisans and fine artists, opened in January 2015 and is located in Coventry Village. Store owner Jenny Goe began selling her jewelry at Coventry’s free outdoor summer concert series, and now manages the work of over 40 local artists who sell their wears in her shop. Everything is made in the state of Ohio.
Merchandise includes T-shirts, glass items and jewelry, ceramics, handmade soap, paintings and prints, pillows, and many other creative treasures.
This week I brought some of my note cards, prints and gift bags there for consignment. My original design themes include Cleveland skylines and landscapes, carousel horses of the Euclid Beach Carousel, and naturescapes from the Nature Center at Shaker Lakes. Most of the images are iPad photo art, manipulated using art apps with photographs.
In The 216 Grand Opening Celebration is Thursday, May 28 at 6:00 – 10:00 p.m., 1854 Coventry Rd, Cleveland Heights, Ohio 44118, (216) 862-4830.
