Simply Charming teams up with the SPCA Dec. 57

On Thursday, Dec. 5 through Saturday, Dec. 7, Lisa Gevelber, owner of Simply Charming in Cleveland Heights, will donate 20 percent of all sales at her boutique to the Northeast Ohio Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA).

Gevelber, who describes her shop as “an eclectic, quirky little boutique, carrying a variety of goods such as greeting cards, jewelry, handbags, scarves, candles, picture frames, journals, and baby and kids items,” has a special connection to the SPCA.

“I’ve had many dogs from the SPCA,” said Gevelber. “Clementine, Simply Charming’s shop dog, is not from there—she was a puppy mill dog—but most of my dogs have come from the SPCA. It’s an important organization, and I wanted to show my support for its work." 

A local, nonprofit no-kill pet shelter, the Northeast Ohio SPCA adopts approximately 2,500 pets into loving homes annually, explained Gevelber. “It receives no government support and depends on donations and volunteers to care for the pets.”

Simply Charming is located at 2254 Lee Road. For more information about Simply Charming, visit or call 216-321-1296.
