MSN started as an outlet where fashion blogger Ian Estep could discuss his passion for trends and travel. A few months and nearly 400 followers later, he decided to include an online store to sell cheeky graphic t-shirts. I learned from Ian that a chic t-shirt is like a great pair of blue jeans – once deemed inappropriate to wear to formal events but is now an everyday wardrobe staple. Just think how priceless it would be to show off your very own Twerkin for a Birkin chic t-shirt! It’s one of many gems you’ll find in the MSN Shop. Now is the time to start thinking of your 2014 style. You’ll want to stay up-to-date on Meet Style Now.

Kolache Republic was founded in 2010 with one goal in mind—to introduce Columbus to kolache using the freshest ingredients with no preservatives and sourcing locally when possible. You may be asking about kolache [kuh-lah-chee]. Traditionally, it is a Czech pastry made of a slightly sweet bread baked with a variety of fruit, nut, and sweet cheese fillings. Kolache Republic serves a variety of sweet and savory varieties filled with cheese, fruit, veggies, and meat. Best of all, each kolache is handmade from scratch using the freshest ingredients.
OLDE TOWNE EAST
Corner Stone is a locally owned and operated wine and craft beer shop located in Olde Towne East. It provides the local neighborhood with a convenient and unintimidating shopping destination for fine wine, cider, and craft beer. Their goals are to provide a comfortable environment for you to browse, help you learn more about beer and wine from their knowledgeable staff, and help you select the perfect complimentary beverages for socializing, events, and meals. My favorite part about Corner Stone is the huge selection of local brands, not to mention the wide selection of cider (my favorite). Be sure to stop by Corner Stone for all your holiday libations.
