Mid Century Dealers and things to see in Detroit?

Postby alexforum » Sat Sep 05, 2009 4:13 pm

Hey all,

I will be visiting Detroit for a few days next week. I will be working mostly, but I was wondering if anyone here on Lottaliving knows of any good mcm dealers, thrift stores or even just places to see?

I'd appreciate any advice very much, since I haven't had the time to do much research...

Motown Records is celebrating its 50th anniversary. The house where it all started is now a museum.

2648 West Grand Blvd, Detroit

Well I don't get to Detroit often but there is Lafayette Park by Mies and Cranbrook off the top of my head. There are a few stores around but can't come up with any.

If you like FLLW there is a nice example in Ann Arbor, not too far of a drive

A little farther yet in Kalamazoo is a house designed by George Nelson I'd be happy to show you.

Sorry I'm not much help but I'll update the thread as I find/think of more.

Make sure you have some Verners while you are there.
