This store has a lot of different items. If you're shopping for a gift, it would be a good place to go for ideas. A lot of hand made stuff.

This artist market has a really unique and interesting range of vendors and items, from jewelry and metalwork, to soap and air plants. A great place to wander around and support your local artists.

This place is chock-a-block full of creative, eclectic, and interesting things and people. Definitely a great place to go on the weekend to get some one of a kind hand-made gifts for you or your friends/family.

A GREAT use of a small space for Detroit and Suburb artists to display and convene. We kind of expected more and yet appreciated those that were exhibiting. Some over/the/top and others I couldn't help wonder if they made enough money to support the space that they rented. Some things unusual and others you might find at a church bizarre.... More

We walked by this place, then my wife doubled back and wanted to stop. I'm glad we did. She's from Detroit and was drooling over the collection of local art, food, clothes and stuff with a Detroit or Michigan theme. If you're looking for unique gifts, artwork or souvenirs then you need to stop and shop here. They truly have... More

I have been here several times and enjoy seeing the different artist and items for sale. LOTS of Detroit items from tee shirts, photographs, tiles and ties. Not too many food items to purchase, a few jams, pickles and baked goods. Prices are okay. Need about half an hour to get around and see all the different venders.

I come here as often as possible. There is always something new and exciting going on along with some favorites I love to check on regularly. I have met vendors and worked with them at additional shows. There is an amazing sense of creativity and an amazing feeling of people just coming together so well to form a small community... More

This is such a fun place to shop. We always stopped here when visiting on vacation and now that we moved back it is still fun and inspirational. It is a great place to find Detroit centric gear, as well as to get a cup off coffee or desert and enjoy the many booths. There are artists & artisans, records/music,... More
