Best Way To Prep For Opening Day

Baseball season is a big deal in Cincinnati. Opening Day is basically an unofficial holiday because everyone either leaves work to get drunk at the parade or go to the first Reds game of the year. To capture that excitement all the time — and on your wrist — Game Day Feels sells bracelets and accessories made from baseball glove laces. The locally owned company was founded by two sisters and now employs three other women in a full-time mission to capture and spread the feeling of game day. Their best-selling rawhide gender-inclusive wrist wraps are handmade from genuine tanned baseball glove lace leather and secured with a buckle. Shoppers can customize their bracelets with engraved coordinates of their favorite baseball stadium, a special saying or someone’s name, icons like baseball hats and home plate or choose from a selection of provided inspirational quotes. Game Day Feels studio, 529 Main St., Loveland, 513-609-1170,
