Sweet Lorain & a Blogger Brunch


Sunday afternoon, Lauren and I headed to Ohio City for a blogger brunch at Touch Supper Club. This place was super fancy, cozy, and their food was super delicious. And did I mention, very pretty? Their coffee was top notch and if there's one thing that makes or breaks a brunch spot for me is the coffee (I'm looking at you Wally Waffle). There was just the right amount of bloggers and we were able to socialize perfectly before, during, and after our brunch.

Meeting bloggers in real life, is always interesting and fun. I know these ladies from their blogs, their photos, and what they share weekly, but hearing their voices and seeing their stunning style in the world is always so much fun. There were a couple ladies whose blogs I had never read, but it was wonderful meeting them first and then digging into their blogs. It's amazing to know that Cleveland/Akron/Canton/Pittsburgh has such a booming blogger community. These ladies have great blogs, pretty style, and they're as sweet in person as on the internet. There was talk of making this a seasonal thing and I surely won't say no!


After we ate, we headed to Sweet Lorain. Which might be one of the best vintage and antique shops I've ever been to. There is absolutely EVERYTHING in this place. It's huge and wonderful. Want a vintage Playboy? They got it. Vintage clothes organized by decade and style. Like "70's Formal". They've got that too. Records, jewelry, unlimited hats, shoes, home decor, men's clothing, 1950's magazines, post cards, old sewing patterns, and really, ANYTHING else you could possibly dream up. It's probably here. If you are ever in Ohio City, make a stop here. You will not regret it.

I didn't end up buying anything, but we did go to Unique Thrift down the street where I bought three awesome belts for the amazing price of $2.

  1. This looks like so much fun! We have a blogger group in Athens, but most of us aren't fashion/style bloggers. I wish I was up there with you so I could meet you guys!

  3. Oh man, this looks so awesome. That's so cool that there are so many of you in the area! I definitely want to try to plan something like this in my area at some point. Also that picture of you taking a photo is the coolest.

  8. This looks like so much fun! I'm a little jealous of the blogger brunch (I don't know any bloggers in my area) and the vintage shops!

  9. How cool to be able to meet other bloggers in person... I am pretty sure Hannah and Katie both more than 8 hours away are the closest bloggers I know of....

  10. It is always so cool to meet online friends in person. It's like meeting a pen pal! Looks like you guys had a good time at Sweet Lorain, I'll have to check it out next time. I've had nothing but bad luck at Unique Thrift...glad you scored some good deals! See you soon!

  11. Aaah! Those hats! *explodes* I get so excited by places selling vintage hats. :) You can never have too many.

    It looks like such a good meet-up and the right size to actually chat to people! One of my friends went on one that had about 30 people on it which sounded like chaos. I would love to meet some other bloggers - but all my favourite ones live in the US. Sad face.

  16. I'm glad you had a great time at the blogger brunch! I would love to do this with some LA based bloggers but it's hard to find the ones who relate to my style. Most of them are high fashion bloggers... Not my forte hahaha!
