The day I walked in this store I was a total beginner. I knew what subjects I wanted to scrap about, but no clue how to do it. The owner walked me through it step by step, helping me pick out the right products that I needed to get started and pointed me in the right direction.
She also holds classes and they start as low as $15 per class to try out products to decide what works best and learn out to create an eye-catching set of pages.
Just getting started? Check em out!
They have a huge variety of paper and stickers too!
The Wind River Gallery is a cute shop right on main street in Milford. If you figure out where to park, that's half the battle. There are entrances through the front and back and it is often easier to park in back than fight to parallel park on the street.
But the store itself is worth the stop. It's small and quaint, but the owner is great and they do excellent framing work. It's decorated nicely and has a warm small-town charm to it.
I love art and I love the painter of light, Thomas Kincaid, so this is oen of my favorite stores to browse through.
They have wonderful displays throughout the store. Everything is done perfectly and every detail is covered.
You can find some unique peices here too. It's more than just framed art.
Freindly staff; knowledgable about art.
You can't beat the fresh fruit, veggies and baked goods at Joe's Produce. They have a large selection, the smell itself is enticing and you can always could on an excellent product that is fresh and tastes great.
Prices are competitive with other markets of it's kind, so they are a little higher than the grocery stores, but it is so worth the little bit of extra money!
Switched On CD's is a good place to sell your old CD's or trade them in for fresh music. They may not offer a lot, but it's better than the $1 you'd earn at a garage sale.
Their music selection id different from that of the big chain stores. they carry music that you can' find anywhere else and they sell it at very reasonable prices.
Set in downtown Farmington, this is a nice shop along the main street area. The service is good and the availability of used and hard to find books is great.
When you've had enough of the major bookstores and are looking for more personalized service, try Books Abound.
Their shelves are easy to browse, well-organized and you'll get a great deal!
You can find stuff you can't normally find at Comic Archives. They have a huge selection of baseball cards and many other collectible items. It's out of my way, but anytime I am in the area I make a point to stop in and check it out.
Their prices are competitive for collectible toys and cards.
I could spend days getting lost at the Detroit Institute of Arts. They house the art of many world renowned artists. Each room basically contains the work of an era, from Renaissance and impressionist to cubism to modern art.
They only ask for a small donation to enter. They have a gift shop with unique things and a cafe for a quick lunch or snack.
I highly recommend a visit to this museum.
The Mill Race Historical Museum is a nice stop on the way to the Northville Cider Mill. It's sort of tucked out of the way off of 8 mile Rd. But is a very small scale version of Greenfield Village. It is a small park where you can walk outdoors from one historical home to the next and learn about the history of the city. There are maybe 6 or 8 houses and it is nothing worth driving long distance to see, though if you are in the are, it's worth the stop.
Get your friends together and bring them to Boogie Fever Disco Cafe and you are guaranteed a good time. The music is awesome. The 70's and 80's hits are a nice alternative to the popular dance music played at most clubs. This music also tends to draw in a bit an older/ more mature crowd.
Great for birthdays and bachelorette parties.
The onyl downfall is they fill up fast. Get there eary or make a reservation for a table.
PROS: Great music.
