Great news. Let's hope this type of investment continues.

I briefly scanned through the article and I liked what I read. But where specifically in Midtown is this new place-the article didn't say-I'll probably know it when I see it. Like Urbanize said, 'Let's hope this type of investment continues.'

Waxx - from the article:
Bureau of Urban Living
Where: 460 W. Canfield, Detroit


It took me less time to find it in the article than it took you to write your post.

Thanks, I appreciate it.

I could kick myself in the ASS 4 overlooking that part of the article (lol).

Snutson -

I bought a retro/modern stainless steel bowl ($10) and a bamboo cutting board ($20). I have my eyes on some great looking sheets, which I will probably pick-up on my next visit. They have a decent collection for the size of the store. The goods are better quality then Bed Bath & Beyond and the prices are comparable.

This evening they are having an open-house party for anybody interested.

The joint looked plenty busy when I drove by ~6:30 this evening. Good for them!

Pretty much the best home store I've been to in forever. More a Chicago kind of place, except the content is better than a generic home store.

So cute, I hope it does great.

So good!

I bought a little something and I plan on going back soon. Surprisingly, they have items for people of every economic stratosphere and it is attractive and practical. Yay!

Not to mention Frank is a great guy.

I'll definitely check it out. Just don't park in the Traffic Jam parking lot or you'll be sorry! :-)

Wow. Praise from DialH. That does not come easily or often (unless of course you are a parking deck masquerading as a village).

Must be worthwhile.
