  1. Thanks for the link, Gordie! What unique items they have. I think I'm going to get the "Mitten" necklace and some pins for a friend who hails from Chicago. The Detroit map lamp is so cool, too!


Thanks for commenting. I moderate comments, so it may take a while for your comment to appear. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at
