Brass Hand owner brings desert to Clintonville

Heather McCloud described her new and unique store as “a slice of the desert, a destination, a mini vacation.”

Originally from Mesa, Ariz., McCloud came to Ohio in grade school, but has lived in both the Midwest and Southwest throughout her life. Her goal is to bring a little bit of the desert and the Southwest to Central Ohio.

“Think Sedona, Ariz., with a little Palm Springs, Calif., in the heart of Columbus,” she said.

“It’s not escapism necessarily. I love Ohio, especially Columbus. But I want you to feel the warmth and the colors and all the senses of the desert right here in our amazing city.”
