Switch

I’m a nerd for lights. I love ’em and always want to think of new ways to implement them. So, finding Switch, a fairly new lighting and light store in Over-the-Rhine (my first trip back to the old ‘hood since moving east), I was very happy to find this little gem.

Prices seemed a bit high, but the style is impeccable. Stop in and check it out.
