One Stop Shopping

Cleveland's greatest concentration of cool galleries and boutiques are found between trendy cafes and established restaurants in historic Little Italy. However, if you're pinched for time and can choose only one shop to visit, Gina's Gallery and Boutique, in the former gallery once occupied by the Fiori Gallery, is your spot. There is so much to see in this newly renovated boutique that you are guaranteed to find something for everyone on your holiday list. Owner Gina Dudnik has an uncanny eye for what's stylish and the Boutique features clothing, jewelry and accessories from the most promising up-and-coming designers such as one-of-a-kind retro inspired clothing by Cleveland's own Pinky's Daily Planner (who is having a trunk show on December 9, 2006), hand crafted bags featuring japanese and vintage fabrics by Feisty Studio and fun and flirty hostess aprons by the Gina Show (the talented owner herself). The Gallery showcases photography, sculpture, art glass, pottery and paintings from local and national artists including this funky bright cobalt blue octopus by Anchor Bend Glass. Stop by if you are in the Cleveland area for a totally unpretentious shopping experience or check out her website at
