After work on Friday I headed to Made In The 216 with a friend. It had been a couple of years since I attended this creative event. It’s become much larger and more popular since then.

It’s so great to shop at a venue knowing everything is made locally. There were some very cool items available. I also loved the decor. The space felt very open and allowed a lot of room for shoppers to move around.

I walked away with some coffee from the Cleveland Coffee Company for my caffeine addicted husband. (Since I’m pregnant I’ll just enjoy the aroma) It was hard to decide which kind to buy because it all smelled so good.

I also picked up this fun mat from the Room Service store down the street from the Made In The 216 venue. It’s been difficult finding a modern looking mat and I just loved this one.

After our shopping fun, we headed to Luxe for dinner. This was my first time at Luxe and I was impressed. The food was excellent and the price was so affordable. I’m looking forward to going back soon. The eggplant fries are calling my name.
