The holidays are right around the corner, which means the holiday gifts are right around the corner too. Literally! If you love where you live, we believe you should shop where you live too. This season, we wanted to highlight some one-of-a-kind presents you can only find here at 21c and in the Queen City.
One of the best things about the Queen City is that small local businesses are at the heart of our communities, so it’s no surprise that we support our neighbors. Show our community some love and shop local this holiday season. Looking for some trendy threads? Shop sustainable, vintage wear from RadOTR or fashionable, accessible clothing from Sloane Boutique. Give someone a little piece of our city with maker-made goods from MiCA 12/V. Or introduce them to a new hobby or interest with a Turkish Coffee Kit from Rüya. Shop ’til you drop at the Greater Cincinnati Holiday Market or the Findlay Holiday Market. Fan of the Queen City mural scene? Be sure to snag some swag and awesome art bundles from ArtWorks Cincinnati – bonus, every purchase you make is invested back into our creative community!
Shopping for a 21c fan? Here’s what you can find here at 21c Cincinnati:
Ceramic Yellow Penguin $40
Take home a pint-sized version of 21c’s iconic Penguin. The 6 1/2″ tall ceramic Penguins are hand-crafted especially for 21c by the artisans at Louisville Stoneware and inspired by the 4-foot-tall plastic Yellow Penguin limited edition sculptures exhibited throughout 21c Cincinnati. The Penguins were created by Cracking Art Group, a collective of artists who inspire people to think about art as something that is simultaneously fun and thought-provoking.
Looking for something they can hang on their tree? We’ve got that too! Help them take their holiday decor to the next level with a Yellow Penguin ornament ($34).
