One of the most enjoyable things about a vacation is the quirky, unique local shops you can find. Put-in-Bay in particular is famous for some amazing independent shops. You can stroll through downtown Put-in-Bay and walk into any shop you choose, and you’re likely to find something very cool to remember your trip by. If you walk into Local Color, we guarantee you will. It doesn’t look like much from the outside, just a small colorful shop. But step inside and you’ll find it’s packed to the rafters with incredible Put-in-Bay souvenirs and memorabilia. There are of course t-shirts, mugs, glassware, all of the things you’d expect to find at a souvenir shop, but there’s much more at Local Color. There are works from island artists, jewelry crafted on the island, stuffed animals and more. And don’t forget about the stickers!
Local Color Stickers
The stickers are one of the things that makes Local Color famous on the island. They have an incredible selection of Put-in-Bay themed stickers! You can slap them onto your laptop, your car, anywhere you want to add a little Put-in-Bay flair. Grab a bunch of them from Local Color to put anywhere you’d like back home!
Local Color Location
You will find Local Color right under the shadow of Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial in historic downtown Put-in-Bay. Perry’s Monument is Put-in-Bay’s most famous landmark. Standing at 352 feet high, it is the world’s largest Doric column, and the fourth-tallest monument in the United States! The monument is a tribute to Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry, and the forces he led to victory in the Battle of Lake Erie. The Battle of Lake Erie was perhaps the most significant moment in the War of 1812. The monument also stands as a commemoration of the peace between America, Canada and the United Kingdom since the War of 1812.
You could come to Local Color just to get a great view of the monument, but while you’re here, stop in. You’ll get to enjoy one of Put-in-Bay’s quirkiest and most unique shops!
