Shop Around // Atelier by AdornUSA

I’ve known about Atelier by AdornUSA for a while, but I’ve known the company’s founder, Arlene Aranzamendez, even longer. We initially met when she did some graphic design work for a company I used to work for, and have managed to keep in touch via seemingly random encounters over the years.

Meanwhile, On the Other Side of the Camera

Shop It Like It’s Hot Part 3 // Elm & Iron

After wrapping up a fun tour of the Artworks murals in OTR and scarfing down a (delicious) smoked chicken wing or five at Taft’s Ale House with my tour group, I made my way over to Elm & Iron, another Columbus-based retailer specializing in industrial-cool home decor at the corner of 14th and Vine. One step inside and it’s clear that this store is a photographer’s dream: the light filled space is packed to the brim
