About Me

My photo
This blog started out as a way for me to display and sell my handmade jewelry creations. I have set up shop on, where my shop name is "Dreamin of Beadin". The link to my Etsy store is located on the right hand side of this page. Please check me out!! If jewelry's not your thing, then check out the site anyway ~ there are plenty of talented artists selling lots of cool things there. For your reading pleasure, this blog will serve as a sneak peek into what's going on "behind the scenes" in my world. I love to cook, so there will be plenty of recipes, as well as product reviews and the occasional product giveaway (woo hoo!) I also love to take pictures of anything and everything, and I just bought a new camera, so there will be plenty of photos. And I like wine too, so things could get pretty interesting . . . Thank you for your support of me, Etsy and "all things handmade" :)


An Historic Gem

I may be a suburban dweller, but I do frequent many places in nearby Detroit. The city that is near and dear to my heart gets many a bad rap, especially lately. I would like to showcase one of the Motor City's gems, and a place where anyone can experience the true culture and vibe of the place I call home.
Eastern Market is the largest historic public market district in the United States. At more than a century old, it is also the world's largest bedding market. In fact, this weekend the 42nd Annual Flower Day will take place, drawing record numbers of people ~ as it does every year. And you bet your bottom that I will be there with my little red wagon in tow.
A few of the market's 100+ year old sheds are undergoing a renovation that will make them better than ever. I am continually proud that this wonderful place continues to thrive in a city where many relics of the past are distant memories not shared by those born after the baby boom. I do not know of many places where you can buy Organic produce, spices, freshly ground coffee, fine wine, imported beer, meat, Seafood ~ and not to mention eat a Monster burger that has been barbecued right there on the street while watching amateurs sing Karaoke ~ all within a few blocks. It is an experience like no other!
These are a few photos that I have taken on past visits to the Market. With all of the negative press that Detroit gets, I'm hoping this portrays a more positive image.
