Best Boutique

Banyan Tree

As in any good love affair, the offerings at this fashionable Tremont anchor continually evolve and change. These days, it seems the cutting boards and cheese knives are giving way to a wider selection of comfy-chic clothing and accessories — including jewelry, jackets, footwear, and even pretty things for tiny fashionistas-in-training. It doesn't matter. Our hearts have belonged to Banyan Tree since 2001, and that's not likely to change anytime soon.

Best Vintage Store

Flower Child

Fun and funky, this West Side vintage shop is like a cool retro retail museum of 20th-century kitsch. While the collection includes items culled from the 1930s to the 1980s, Flower Child especially loves the '70s and '80s. That means that whether you're searching for a set of your childhood Star Wars sheets or a light-up Christmas-tree sweater, odds are you're going to find it here.

Best Antiques Shop

Attenson's Antiques & Books

For those of us whose love of old things extends beyond our parents and our Star Wars collection, this Coventry Road emporium of antique artifacts fills a deeply felt void. After all, you never know when possessing a Victorian cameo, a leaded glass window, or an antique Oriental carpet could be all that stands between you and true happiness.

Best Clothing Maker & Best Locally Owned Clothing Store

C.L.E. Clothing Co.

Founded in 2008, C.L.E.'s two locations feature ever-evolving designs celebrating our skyline, Lake Erie, the former Coliseum, and even Dead Man's Curve. Made in America and printed right here, the goods have Cleveland's heartstrings all sewn up.

Best Bookstore

Visible Voice

A repository for the books you were looking for and those you didn't know you needed, Visible Voice is also so much more. It's a hub of culture in the heart of Tremont, where the lineup of activities runs longer than War and Peace. From film nights to musicians to author visits — and from afternoons spent relaxing on the garden patio to sipping selections from the wine bar — Visible Voice captures the Tremont vibe like no other place around.
