As the shopping season comes our way, I always find myself scrambling for great gifts for my loved ones. Well, scramble no more, ladies! At the Nov. 6 Seasonably Chic Showcase, you’ll find gifts for everyone in the family, and maybe even something for yourself! Ok, DEFINITELY something for yourself! : )
Rachel Lynn Studio
This Etsy jewelry maker will be showing off her best handmade pieces this year. But, prior to making jewelry, Rachel Lynn from Rachel Lynn Studio was inspired by the 70 horses she looked after. Now she only cares for her two dogs but still makes beautifully crafted pieces from wire, fabrics and paint. And I really love the personalized wire name hanger which would be great for any baby shower, house warming gift or even in your own home. I was actually just at an event last week where Rachel was and I saw the “love” wire door hanger and I thought it was a necklace… I asked her if she could change the clasp and make it a necklace for me, so I can’t want to get that! How eyecatching would that be with an LBD and red heels… OH! On Valentine’s Day?!? AH! I’m really excited now!
In my book, a great handbag is a girl’s best friend. It’s like a puppy you don’t have to feed. I know I’ve told you about DeGroot Handbags before, but in case you don’t know, DeGroot bags are made by a local gal, Missy DeGroot, who specializes in high-end Italian leather handbags. I reeeeeeeally love her bags. Don’t tell my husband, but I have four and I’m contemplating making it an even five. : ) So, naturally I can’t wait to see the selection of handbags that DeGroot Handbags will bring to Seasonably Chic Showcase.
Here’s a little backstory on Missy: After starting the line 6 years ago, she’s been traveling the world for the most exotic and unique leather and fabrics. These bags have graced the cover of top fashion magazines such as Lucky, In Style, WWD, Accessories magazine, Glamour, Marie Claire and Elle.
It’s In The Details
After selling items on the road throughout the Midwest, founder Brenda Stradley realized there was a huge demand for her unique gifts in Mason, Ohio. She set up shop and has been serving the people of Cincinnati with everything a woman could want. It’s In The Details carries some great girlfriend gifts and head turning trinkets.
They sell everything from accessories, to shoes, to kid’s clothes, to wedding gifts. The boutique also has a wide selection of antique style jewelry at great prices. Below are some of my favorite pieces… they sure will make a statement at your holiday parties right around the corner!
Scentsy by Cherie Winship
I love using candles around my house. You can get that scent of warm, baked apple pie without even stepping in the kitchen! haha! That’s why I am looking forward to stopping by Scentsy Warmers’ booth to see all they have to offer. These are no ordinary candles, my friends. They actually aren’t even candles, they are a low-watt bulb that melts specially formulated wax slowly, maximizing the fragrance time.
If you’re like me, and like your home smelling like you just finished baking, pick up the Bakery fragrance. Or if you love to smell of your favorite coffee shop, try the Scentsy Café. (I like coffee too much to rely on a candle for that scent… I get it the old fashioned way: From Mr. Coffee! haha!)
Each Scentsy comes in a Warmer which can be customer designed. They feature some beautiful colors, shapes and sizes. You could find a Warmer that matches any room in your house.
The Seasonably Chic Showcase will be on Nov. 6 at The Phoenix downtown from 10am-3pm. This event brings 40 of the Tri-state’s best boutiques and vendors – for women, men, children and pets – all under one roof for one day of spectacular shopping! The best thing about it? It’s free to get in! Just bring in a canned good for the Freestore Foodbank! Click here to RSVP!
Cincy Chic and Locals on Living, an affiliate of the Cincinnati.Com network, have teamed up to give away a prize pack of items from all the Seasonably Chic Showcase vendors that’s valued at $2,500! Click here to learn how you can win it!
