Rather than wait until the region is sufficiently thawed-out to hold an outdoor flea market, the Ann Arbor-Detroit area is home to a year-round, three-story emporium of beautiful vintage goods.
Tucked away in Kerrytown, the Treasure Mart is one of the best vintage stores in the state. There is truly something for everyone – antique connoisseurs, DIY addicts, and flea market scavengers. Not technically a flea market by design but thoroughly so in spirit, the Treasure Mart is a consignment shop with 8,500 square feet of delightfully curated and highly organized mid-century home furnishings, vintage clothing, costume jewelry, ceramics, dishware, and loads of small, inexpensive kitsch. Price range from 25 cent postcard to a $8,000 Biedermeier bedroom set.
Housed in a historic building that was once a mid-19th century planing mill, the Treasure Mart also has an outdoor area full of vintage patio furniture spanning a few decades. Definitely a must do if you’re near Ann Arbor, all the more so as there are roughly 2,000 new items put out each day.
