Over-the-Rhine boutique MiCA 12/v has been holding down the city’s hippest corner at 12th and Vine streets since before it was cool. Mike and Carolyn Deininger first started selling as MiCA in a small space in O’Bryonville in 2003 before presciently moving into their current location in OTR in 2007. The indie boutique and art gallery features an awesomely extensive collection of locally made goods, plus design-forward homegoods, accessories, clothing, cards and toys. Find Charley Harper glassware, wooden animal clocks, Matt & Nat vegan leather bags, Cincy-themed T-shirts, printed pillows, funny metal flasks, goetta pig prints and so much more. It’s the one-stop-shop to find a gift for anyone on your list. Going to a baby shower? Grab a printed kerchief bib. Birthday party? How about an area code necklace? Dinner party? Almost anything in the store is an acceptable and amazing hostess gift. Really. MiCA 12/v, 1201 Vine St., Over-the-Rhine, shopmica.com.
