DOWNTOWN AKRON — New and gently used clothing, as well as furniture, home décor and local art, are available at Northside Cellar, located at 106 N. Main St.
According to owners Jodie Oates and Wendy Geonis, the five-month-old retail and consignment shop started with an effort to reduce the contents of their closets and quickly expanded into a shop.
Oates added the store carries a wide variety of garments, goods and art.
“Northside Cellar offers artistic style for you and your home,” said Oates.
Oates said the clothing items include contemporary women’s fashions, with plenty of holiday wear, and items ranging from gowns to vintage furs, as well as casual wear. Also available are accessories such as shoes, both contemporary and vintage handbags and jewelry. The clothing is both from consignment and items hand-selected from visits to national markets, Oates added.
“We have something for women of all ages, from college age to seniors,” she added. “Shoppers are guaranteed to find something to fit every decade of their lives, whether they are an urban millennial or an octogenarian.”
Oates said Northside Cellar is currently offering a large selection of clothing items on sale for 40 percent off.
The shop also has unique curated art created by local artists. Oates said this selection includes oils, photography, framed prints, original paper collages by Helen Wilson, Linda Radek sculptures, handmade greeting cards, A Vintage Bee hand-poured candles and more. She added the store is one of only a few in the area that carries Tokyo Milk candles and perfumes.
“We have a great selection of gift ideas for the holidays,” said Oates.
Northside Cellar also has rugs, coffee tables, sofa and love seats, end tables, chairs and other pieces.
“We are hoping to open a lower level with more furniture and art, as well as books, in December,” said Oates.
Through November, the store is presenting a 50/50 raffle. Visitors can make a donation to the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank. The proceeds will be split evenly between the winner and the agency. The winning ticket will be drawn Dec. 1.
Also, on Dec. 8 from 5 to 9 p.m., the store will present a Holiday Hop, with raffles, prizes, refreshments and more.
