You only need to know two words when thinking about buying pre-owned luxury: STORE 5a. What is STORE 5a you ask? Let me tell ya. Directed by Jesse Johnson, STORE 5a is known for not only providing pre-owned luxury items but providing an experience. They provide an easy and simple way for their customers to buy and sell luxury items while giving them an amazing experience. 

A clean, chic environment with super helpful staff, STORE 5a has became so popular they have two locations- one in the Short North and one at Easton Town Center. The latest Chanel boy bags, Hermes scarves, Rolex watches, Cartier love rings, these are just a few mentionable items STORE 5a carries currently. 

I personally flock to their handbags first. There are only a few things I will truly invest in and one of them is handbags. This pre-owned Chanel tote grabbed my attention the second I walked in the store. From brands like Gucci to Louis Vuitton to Prada, they have something for everyone. 

They also have AMAZING jewelry! This John Hardy cuff is a piece you won't see anywhere else. And what about this David Yurman buckle bracelet? Talk about the perfect everyday piece. It's hard to stand out these days but buying pre-owned pieces that no one else owns is the way to go. 

STORE 5a, like I said, is located in the Short North. If you have never been to Columbus Ohio, let me let you in on a little secret. One of our top gems is called the Short North Arts District. The Short North is our trendy, culture-rich area centered on North High Street. Known as the heart and soul of Columbus the Short North is the perfect place for visitors to attend fun events, shop streetwear, enjoy vibrant cocktails and of course, check out the amazing art and nightlife. 

To give you a few highlights, let's start with one thing that will bring anyone to the Short North no matter what your interests and drinks! Here is a short list of some of my favorites that anyone could find something at. ** These are not all of the restaurants **

Coffee- One Line Coffee - such a cute quaint spot with WiFi perfect for work or meeting a friend for a cappuccino, Mission Coffee Co. 

Breakfast & Brunch- Hubbard Grille (pictured above), Forno- O M G Forno is my favorite!! Their french toast and egg sandwich are to die for. Plus they have $4 mimosas and they are YUMMY. Bodega, Northstar (amazing granola and breakfast sandwich as well), Zest (smoothie bowls, toast and juices), The Lox Bagel Shop (just opened recently and their bagels are amazing!

Lunch/ Dinner- Native (as pictured above) great açaí bowls!, Brassica, Condados (tacos and yummy queso), Mikey's Late Night Slice, Local Cantina, Marcella's (Italian), Union, Black Point 

Local wine, beer, and spirits- Short North Brewdog, North High Brewing, Seventh Son Brewing Co. 

Whether you are walking your dog, enjoying the weather or grabbing a bite to eat with one of your girlfriends, this is the perfect time for you to pop into STORE 5a

I recently went on a little shopping trip there and tried on some of my favorite pieces. This Chanel curblink belt I'm wearing here is a KNOCKOUT. These fun black onyx earrings were the perfect item  to pair with it! 

The pieces they offer are pre-owned but are in pristine condition. I just purchased Tom Ford sunglasses and they look brand new but I got them for a discounted price, win-win

Other Shopping spots: Anthropologie, Rowe Boutique, FOUNT, Homage, Jolie, VAMP

One of the biggest events the Short North offers is called the Gallery Hop. It takes places on the first Saturday of every month! This is one of Columbus' legendary traditions. They have new gallery exhibits', food, drinks, street performers, etc. It is Columbus' favorite night of the month to celebrate art. Such a good time to have date night or hang with friends as a lot of the bars and stores stay open later! 

I am so grateful that STORE 5a let me come in and pick out a few items to style for this shoot! No matter what I'm doing down in the Short North I always make time to pop in to see their new arrivals every week. Jesse Johnson, director of STORE 5a says, "Every piece has a story. What will yours be?" Go in there and find out! I can't wait to hear! ** You can get $25 off your first purchase with code NICOLE25. **

Thank you so much to STORE 5a for sponsoring today's post!
