Sweet Lorain

Since holding a grand reopening party earlier this year — complete with a slight name change, from "Suite" to "Sweet" — Sweet Lorain has regained its rep as the city's best place for bygone-era treasures. Spruced up and reorganized so you can actually walk through its 8,000 square feet, the place features a little bit of everything: from Hawaiian shirts and vintage dresses and jewelry to home furnishings and furniture plucked from half a century ago. Helpful when you need a certain item, Sweet Lorain is even better when you've got an afternoon to spare and a yearning to wind your way through endless displays of kitschy odds and ends. After all: It's not about what you came looking for, but what you can't leave without.

7105 Lorain Ave., Cleveland, 216-281-1959,
