Seasonably Chic Showcase Sneak Peek: Nest

Dammit Dolls

Our Seasonably Chic Showcase event is almost here! From now until the event, I’ll be randomly selecting some of the vendors we’ll have at the show to give you a sneak peek of what you can find at the show! Today, I’m highlighting Nest.

If you haven’t been – or haven’t been in a while – you MUST check them out! Located on Michigan Ave. in Hyde Park, they’re one of the very best places in town to get great gifts (for your loved ones AND you!).

So, in preparation for this sneak peek blog, I asked Heather the owner what her best-sellers are this year, and she said “dammit!”  ….Dammit Dolls that is. haha!

Heather says these Dammit Dolls are the perfect stocking stuffer and conversation piece for co-workers, girlfriends and golf buddies (yes, they have a golf motif doll).

Another Hot seller has been the Corkcicle. I can attest to this being an awesome gift because our staff photographer, Neysa Ruhl, got me one for Christmas last year and I use it all the time! It’s great – you just freeze it, then once you open a bottle of wine, you put the Corkcicle in to keep the wine chilled! No ice bucket! These retail for $24.95 but you can get them for $22.95 when you purchase more than one.

Have a cook on your list? Nest has a ton of great cookbooks. Need to get a great gift for a fashionista friend (or want to add a little sparkle to your wardrobe?). Nest has some fab handbags and jewelry!

So, visit Nest this Saturday at the Seasonably Chic Showcase at the Phoenix (it’s a free event – just bring a canned good for the Freestore Foodbank to get in!) to find some great items for everyone on your list.. including yourself! 🙂

12 Days of Seasonably Chic Showcase: Day 8

Only eight days left in the countdown to the Nov. 6 Seasonably Chic Showcase! Here’s a sneak peek of some of the vendors you’ll see there, and my favorite things they offer!

NestWine Clock from Nest
I don’t think I have ever wanted literally EVERYTHING on one boutique’s site… but after browsing around on Nest’s website, I’m hooked! They have all things for styling an outfit, to decorating your home to snagging a great gift for a girlfriend. The boutique is basically a one stop shop for adorable pieces! And as a girl who loves, I mean LOVES, wine, they have great gifts for my other wine goddesses! Check out the wine clock, which is a constant reminder that wine is acceptable with just any time of the day.

Cufflings from SmallPrint Jewelry Small Print

For all of those new parents out there, you’ll want to check out this booth. Small Prints designs handcrafted pieces that capture your child’s fingerprint, handwriting, drawings… anything… into silver jewelry. If you have a bun in the oven, you can even order a kit to take your new baby’s finger print on the day of the birth and have a piece of jewelry made from it! How cool! And if you love to gush over your kid’s best art pieces, they can even make the picture into a miniature work. These unique pieces would make a great gift for your special hubby. Or maybe drop a subtle, or not so subtle hint and ask for one for the holiday season! And this isn’t just limited to parents, either. I got cufflinks with my dog’s footprint on it for my husband for Christmas last year. He looooooooves them!

Holte Eyewear
To get all of the looks from our recent Spec-tacular Fashion Show, be sure to stop by Hotle Eyewear’s booth at Seasonably Chic Showcase! They carry some of highest fashion eyewear in Cincinnati, to make you look your best in frames. Just to name a few, Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana, Coach, Juicy Couture, Fendi, and the list goes on! And don’t worry, if you need help picking the right lenses, the great staff will find the perfect frames for you!

Elysium Originals

Sunstone Necklace from Elysium Originals

Did you know “Elysium” is the Greek word for paradise? Well, you can have a little piece of paradise if you happen to buy something from Elysium Originals. The designer, Ellen Norcott, creates some seriously gorgeous pieces. I own quite a few and I have given several pieces to my mom who loves the natural gemstone look. Ellen even custom-made an amber necklace for my mom’s birthday in August. Ellen mixes gemstones, crystal, pearl and other stones to create stand out designs. These pieces are sure to add personality to any outfit, and are great conversation starters! Check out the beautiful Sunstone Necklace which is perfect for all of your fall looks!

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. (deadline is TODAY at 9am… so get on it!)

PS thanks to my intern, Holly Hoover, for helping me put this blog together.
