Spotlight: Ann Arbor Small Businesses!

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.
