In the spirit of Black Friday and holiday shopping, I thought it would be appropriate to share a few of my personal favorite Ann Arbor small businesses. It’s especially hard this season for local businesses to survive during Covid, so think about shopping small this winter. Whether for a gift or for yourself, I say, treat yourself!
Literati Bookstore – book heaven.
Crazy Wisdom Bookstore & Tea Room – eclectic, cozy, and pleasantly surprising.
Bivouac – for your granola friends.
FOUND – lovely things you didn’t know you needed.
Rock Paper Scissors – ultimate whimsy, in the best way.
Vault of Midnight – anything and everything comics and board game related.
Olympia Skate Shop – the best place in A2 for skateboard goods and streetwear.
Comet Coffee – sweet bevs and cute shirts at the cutest little shop in Nickels Arcade.
Roos Roast Coffee – tasty blends with great branding (order a gift card before December 1st to benefit the homeless shelter!)
Bløm Meadworks – delicious drinks and awesome merch.
Detroit Street Filling Station – two words: buffalo cauliflower.
