Simply Elegant PicOberlin Community Services Executive Director Linda Arbogast interviewed Chris Heinebrodt and Amanda Heinebrodt about their local business called Simply Elegant Candle & Gift.  Their store is located at 29 South Main Street, Oberlin (former location of Infinite Monkey.) Chris Heinebrodt is the owner and President and his wife Amanda is the Vice President of this Oberlin business.

Chris and his wife Amanda consider their store a boutique of candles and gifts.  Their store items price range from 99 cents to $120.  The reason Chris and Amanda opened up a store in Oberlin is because they grew up in Lorain County.  After college they moved to Oberlin because they loved the downtown.  They waited for a spot to open up downtown and then the perfect spot became available.

The items in their store come primarily from Ohio.  They also sell many items made right in Oberlin or in the County. There are often coupons and special deals on their Facebook page, so check it out. They love Oberlin as believe there is no other community in the County that would care about locally made products and gifts.

Like many of the other business owners and managers, the money spent at their store is turned around and spent at other stores within the community.  Other places they like to shop in town include Watson???s Hardware, the antique store (next door to them,) and the Workshop Art Gallery, which is located across the Street.  They work 6 days a week and eat out for lunch everyday.  They favorite lunch spots include Black River Caf?? and the Mandarin.

Simply Elegant Candle & Gift is one of the weekly sponsors of the Rethink Your Ride Alternative Transportation Challenge.  We encourage everyone to and stop by to say ???hello??? to Chris and Amanda at Simply Elegant Candle & Gift and support our local small businesses in Oberlin
