The Krema Nut Company has been a Columbus tradition since 1898! In fact, it is one of the oldest peanut butter companies still manufacturing in the US today. The company manufactures natural peanut butters and sells fresh roast nuts, Gourmet Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwiches and a variety of confectionery.
It’s common knowledge that Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams is committed to using local ingredients as often as possible, and one of their favorite companies is the Krema Nut Company in Grandview Heights. Try Jeni’s Brown Butter Almond Brittle, Pistachio & Honey, and Whiskey & Pecans - all made with products from the Krema Nut Company.
Peanut butter sandwiches and Jeni’s ice cream sounds like a perfect start to the school year!
Looking for a modern-day general store with an eclectic variety of goods for the modern home, palette and sense of humor? Bink Davies has it all. Their goal is to make you, or the person you are selecting a gift for, smile. Fortunately, the store is located just footsteps from my apartment. I shop at Bink Davies for one-of-a-kind pieces to decorate my apartment and to buy Ohio-centric gifts for my friends close by and afar. If for nothing else, visit the store for the fabulous window displays.
You won’t be disappointed.
The Book Loft of German Village is one of the nation’s largest independent book stores. The pre-Civil War era buildings that once were general stores, a saloon and a nickelodeon cinema, now are home to 32 rooms of Bargain Books.
You’ll love the old-fashioned bookshop experience: strolling down German Village brick pathways, gazing through windows the likeness of a Charles Dickens era, and then losing yourself within the 32 rooms of books. I have frequented The Book Loft in the past for English literature books as well as foreign language materials. It’s a great escape from the campus crowd too (wink).
Robert Mason (RM) is a boutique, fashion-forward office, school, art and inspiration store. I first discovered the store while on a visit to Sugardaddy’s on Gay Street. I was so impressed by the inventory and products throughout the
store as it screams young professional stationary and student gear. You’re backto school shopping is not complete until you pay Robert Mason a visit!
