Stopped in after being nosey as we walked by. Lots of cool niche items, with sellers trying to capitalize on the Michigan and made in Michigan movement. A bit pricy on most items but worth a stroll through. Like I said lots of neat stuff.

You can always find something different here whether it be home grown, smitten with the mitten, clothing, oils, and my fave bird houses and feeders. There is a changing inventory and of course this adds to the experience. Central location and a can't miss.
