All Things Detroit!

Have you ever had a day where you just felt that it went perfectly from start to finish? That's exactly how I felt this past Sunday at All Things Detroit at the Eastern Market. With over 200 local vendors, and an army of food trucks, the event drew in quite the crowd! It was a sunny and pleasant morning, perfect for some shopping, food, and entertainment. We wandered from table to table admiring the craftsmanship that comes from the Detroit area. The range of products was incredible, with everything from clothing, to art, beauty, health, and makeup. We spoke with some wonderful people, and heard their stories behind their businesses. Lynette of Knit Sew Fabulous was a warm and inviting woman who let her work speak for her. While gushing over one of her handmade purple ponchos, she offered that I try it on and get a picture for my blog. Colin of Detroit Respect took time to talk with us on his business, and we took plenty of time talking over which one of his bold and inspiring t-shirt designs to purchase for Christmas gifts. Ojas of Tribalfare explained how she travels to India to purchase the stunning textiles she uses in her bright and colorful designs. She offered that we visit her studio office in TechTown to see her entire selection of work. The owner of Blackfokapparel proudly told us that they've been in the Detroit t-shirt business since 1998, and plan on sticking around to accomplish some big goals. Karen of Natural Red, and her partner, explained that she started her vegan beauty business in desire of healthier products for her children. I purchased a natural deodorant with a fresh lemony smell, that I've enjoyed using! Tia of Doll Faced Cosmetics gave us a synopsis of her long lasting vegan lip colors, that come in every shade from red, to blue, to green! I'll soon be blogging a review of her red everlasting love lip color, so stay tuned ;* We were informed of the event and accompanied by Raymond of Stylish Dreams Group, who it was so nice to catch up with. We ran into our bubbly and beautiful friend V Lynne, blogger of V Lynne's Rhythm Suite. We also saw our friend Daishawn, producer of Walk Fashion Show, which Emily and I will be attending this Sunday back at the Eastern Market! On our way out, we grabbed some delicious natural cherry iced tea from Drifter Coffee. All in all, we had a fantastic time shopping, meeting some talented new friends, and catching up with some old ones at All Things Detroit!
