Treasure Mart ~ Ann Arbor, MI

I thought I'd share a very neat place I go to with my blogger friends, its in Ann Arbor Michigan and called Treasure Mart. Now you might not know this place exists if you aren't a local. It is in the midst of turn of the century homes that are used mainly for housing at the U of M. My dear friend Susie and I are avid shoppers and love vintage everything. We ususally get to go a number of times throughout the year. But this year it has been really hard for us to eeek out any time to do this. Soooooo, finally today we finally we able to make it date!
Treasure Mart, I guess has been around forever. Which I do not know for sure, because I have only lived in the area about 15 years. Susie says its been there since she can remember. Its all consignment, furniture, dishes, accessories, books, well you know the drill! It is a 3 story very vintage home that is just crammed with stuff everywhere. Even has furniture outside in a covered type garage. You must be a good looker, looking high and lower to not miss a thing. I usually have to stand a look across the room just to see what's out thar! It can really be sensory overload for sure. But well worth the 2-3 hours it may take to go through it all.

I told you it is crammed FULL!!! lol...We always finish the day by going less than a block up the street to our favorite deli called ZINGERMANS. Which is an all organic place that makes the yummiest sandwiches and salads. But be sure to bring lotsa $$$$ cause it IS not cheap.

I'll go take pictures of my take and post them later...thanks for visiting..loved to hear what you all think!
