Holiday Guide to Shopping Like a Local
Shopping local gives you the opportunity to meet and get to know the people who make what you need. Local businesses are more dedicated to making a quality product because it is a reflection of their own work. The relationship between consumer and provider takes on a whole new meaning when you shop on the local level. By supporting our local small business owners, we can give our local economy the edge it needs to keep our beautiful city growing and healthy. This is why we created our #Plege100 campaign. This campaign is our way of voicing our support of local businesses and making it easier for you to do the same! Shop local so you can meet our amazing local business owners and see first hand how much love and effort they put into their products. For Cleveland... Keep it Local!!

My name is Ann King and I started Borrow back in 2012, in the back of my husband’s business garage with the belief that people need a custom and locally sourced furniture as part of their lives. The business has grown so much in the last few years and I just love being able to work in a field I am so passionate about, as well as a business that has a direct effect on our local artist and maker communities. Every person is an artistic individual and when your decor reflects that, it is an unshakeable feeling. With my BA from Miami University and a childhood history in the theatre, events have been a part of my blood from a very early age. I truly love what I do and the people I do it for. Ann King – Owner, wife, mother, and lover of all people and things of Borrow.
