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.

President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama appeared at a fundraising event in New York City Thursday – but they certainly weren't the only VIPs in the room.
Sarah Jessica Parker hosted the event at her Manhattan home, and among the celebrities in attendance were Meryl Streep, Michael Kors, Anna Wintour and Bravo's Andy Cohen, who was seated across from the First Lady.
President Obama noted that Parker's husband, Matthew Broderick, was unable to attend because he's currently starring in Nice Work If You Can Get It on Broadway, and added that the couple had "been great friends." He also added that Wintour, too, was "working hard in New York and Chicago" on behalf of his re-election efforts.
Parker, a longtime Obama supporter, introduced the President with a hug and a kiss, and called Michelle Obama "radiant and extraordinary."

Want to live like a character out of Sex and The City?
Well, if you have a cool $9.65 million at your disposal and don't mind a steady stream of tourists gawking at your front door, the townhouse, which stood in for Carrie Bradshaw's apartment, could be yours.
The 4,100-square-foot, four-story brownstone at 64 Perry Street in New York City, which sold for $9 million in November, is back on the market, according to the New York Daily News.
While Sarah Jessica Parker's character on the show lived on the Upper East Side, the producers chose the West Village residence as the site of her apartment and later switched to the home next door at 66 Perry.

AnnaSophia Robb has some big – not to mention fashionable – shoes to fill.
The actress, 18, is set to play a high school version of the Manolo Blahnik-obsessing, love-chasing Carrie Bradshaw, a role originated by Sarah Jessica Parker in HBO's Sex and the City, The Hollywood Reporter confirms.
The CW has ordered a pilot episode of The Carrie Diaries, which will chronicle Bradshaw's teen days in '80s Manhattan, long before penning her sex column.

Filming began last month in Los Angeles.

Bravo host and behind-the-scenes executive Andy Cohen has signed a "low seven-figure" deal for his forthcoming memoir, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Cohen, 43, the network's executive vice president and host of Watch What Happens: Live says of the book: "It'll be a memoir, of sorts, about my intersections with pop culture over the years, from growing up in front of the TV as a kid in St. Louis to my years at CBS News, all the way up to today. The stories I've been saving up are funny and improbable and really define who I am today."
The book, due next summer from the New York publisher Henry Holt, so far has no title, and Cohen is asking for suggestions.
