Like clockwork I find myself once again facing the harsh reality that Christmas is less then ten days away and I still have way too much shopping to do.

As a way to possibly avoid the chaos of suburban shopping I was curious if we might be able to quickly list some unique shops here in the city that could be an alternative.

Last year I picked up a few fantastic gifts from Pewabic. Seems like a good topic before the weekend shopping rush begins.

What suggestions do any of you have out there for shopping in the city?

I got all my gifts from Pure Detroit last year. My family and friends in Maine thought it was pretty fun.

You can go to the Ren Cen on Saturday, where half of the shops are closed, yet they still offer gift wrapping.

I hit up Puebic Pottery, 5500 Cass Gallery, and the art space at forest and woodward. Plan on going to Boreders or BN for the remainder of gifts.

Are there any websites that support specifically Detroit retail (other than pure Detroit)?

I live in Chicago and would rather support Detroit's retail shops, if possible.

Go to this website and click on a neighborhood and the list of shopping for that neighborhood will come up that lists the stores in each neighborhood.
