Sarah Jessica Parker and True Blood's Alfre Woodard stepped out in Cincinnati on Saturday to campaign for President Barack Obama – but Parker managed to squeeze in a little shopping, too.

The actresses – who were encouraging women to vote in the upcoming election – stopped into Sloane Boutique in Over-the-Rhine, Ohio.

"Sarah was so nice and so pleasant to be around," the boutique's owner tells PEOPLE. "Very humble and very down-to-earth."

The I Don't Know How She Does It actress tried on Veda leather jackets and bought some bracelets for her twin daughters, Loretta and Tabitha.

"She told me she couldn't wait to come back and shop again," the boutique owner added.

Girls Star Lena Dunham Dishes on Sex and the City Comparisons

Originally posted 04/15/2012 11:35AM

It's drawn early comparisons to another HBO show – Sex and the City – but the major thing Lena Dunham's dark comedy, Girls, has in common with the show is, well, the sex.

For this group of young New York women, it's all about uncomfortable sexual positions, "like legs behind the head kind of action," Dunham, who wrote, directed and stars in the series, told PEOPLE at its premiere at the School of Visual Arts Theatre.

Joked Dunham, 25: "I was sore the next day in a different place than you're usually sore after sex."
