Is that a fairy garden in Capitol Park Detroit?!
You may have driven by and noticed cute little greenhouses throughout Capitol Park Detroit! At first glance, it looks like a fairy garden came to life. Honestly, it kind of is! Bedrock Detroit has organized an amazing summer shopping experience that you don’t want to miss. You can also find more of these cute little shops in Cadillac Square.
Lending a helping hand to Half Mile Handmade!
I was lucky enough to enjoy an entire day exploring Capitol Park. Our friends at Half Mile Handmade are one of the many featured shops at the market! Half Mile Handmade is a shop originally based out of Bay City. Shop owner, Capri, jumped on the opportunity this summer to move to Detroit and participate in the market. She has done an amazing job turning her pop-up into a one stop shop for Michigan products. I was lucky enough to lend a helping hand at the shop for a day. As soon as I walked in, I knew I had to share this unique downtown Detroit stop.
One stop shop for Michigan products!
One of the most unique things about Half mile Handmade, is that every thing is made by local artists and crafters! You will find a wide variety of products. Tourists and locals alike will love the Detroit themed postcards, magnets, and keychains. You’ll also find art prints and home decor to add the perfect Michigan touch to your home. One of my favorite items were the Detroit map throw pillows!
Make it a trip!
Downtown Detroit really has some great things going on that many aren’t even aware of! Plan a weekend trip to check everything out. Start your day off with a visit to the oldest outdoor market in the US, Eastern Market. After, make the mile an a half drive, walk, or bike ride to Capitol Park. Say “Hello” to Capri and welcome her to Detroit!
