Strongwater Made Local Marketplace

Have you heard of Strongwater? It’s at 400 W. Rich Street and is an old warehouse in Franklinton that is a bar/restaurant with space to host events. They host the Made Local Marketplace from time to time & I finally got to go to it last weekend with the boyfriend. It was so cool! I had been meaning to explore Franklinton because we talk about that area a lot when we discuss city planning in the Columbus area. The community is supposed to face some revitalization over the next few years . We went to the Made Local Marketplace last time when they hosted it at Polaris, but were only there briefly. I liked this set-up much more because something felt weird about hosting an event that supports local vendors & artists in a shopping mall all spread out. I ended up buying two pieces of jewelry from Red Giraffe Designs (here is her Etsy link).  I purchased a silver fox ring & light pink rose earrings (I am building up my earring collection since I got my ears pierced in May & can finally take them out in a couple weeks!). These were my second & third purchases from her, I also bought an “Ohio is for lovers” necklace from her when she had booth at the Grandview Hop in May.

I love graffiti! We found some cool pieces around Strongwater

I will definitely go back to Franklinton to explre sometime soon. I also plan to go back to 400 W. Rich Street to attend another event or try out the new coffee shop! Have you ever been there?
