What’s a Rich Text element?



The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

Ellen Sea Art & Antiques

Just like people, everything in antique shops contains its own individual and unique story.

87 W Olentangy St. | Powell, OH 43065 | https://www.ellenseaantiques.com/

Do you enjoy antique shopping? Or looking at items from previous decades? If so, then this is the perfect store for you. Located in Powell Ohio, an approximate twenty-minute drive from Westerville, you will be able to find Ellen Sea Art & Antiques.

Why should I waste my time going to an antique shop? If this is something that you are thinking about, then perhaps antique shopping isn’t for you. However, there may also be a chance that you just have never been antique shopping. If either of these is true, don’t knock it until you try it. Going out thrift shopping is something you can do at any age and can be a fun adventure to go out and do if you are looking for something different. 

A few things to keep in mind when you go antique shopping is that it may be better to leave your little ones at home or with friends, due to many items at these shops being breakable and irreplaceable. And to keep in mind that when you go, it may be more of a window-shopping experience, admiring things from the past over a shopping experience. Antiques can range from anywhere starting at $10 to over $100 dollars. Some stores may even have antiques priced at over $500.

So what is the story behind this little shop?

This little antique shop was founded by Lawerence and Claudia, a couple who after getting married in 2003, began collecting items. Like most people, they ran out of space fairly quickly, which is how their store came to be. Not too long after opening, people began to bring in their items from their growing collections and sold them to the couple to resell at their store. 

Now things that were once seen as junk or seen as too abundant in an individual's home are sold here, permitting others to enjoy and add to their collections and decorate their own homes with them. Another bonus is that since these items are antique, they make for great gifts if you are looking for something that others may not own.

Now you have more knowledge about where Westerville is, you and your family can decide if you want to move here due to how close it is to other counties and for all the nearby attractions!
