Downtown Ferndale Businesses Set for Small Business Saturday

(C. Proxmire, Nov. 29, 2014)

Modern Natural Baby owner Emily Murray calls Small Business Saturday “the busiest day of the year.”  But of course she and her staff are ready to sell the eco-friendly kids toys, bibs, cloth diapers, and other baby-raising accessories that make great holiday gifts.  Modern Natural Baby is one of over 30 local businesses offering special deals for the day.  “We open and ten and there will be a line at the door, she said.  The store offers special deals all day, including a gift certificate for the first 25 shoppers.

Downtown Ferndale has a passport of businesses for the day, sponsored by Garden Fresh Gourmet.  Each stamp on the passport offers participants an entry into a raffle where they can win prizes and gift certificates.

This will be Liz Roekle’s first Small Business Saturday in Ferndale.  She’s the manager of Treasure Trove, a store featuring furniture, jewelry, gifts and other consignments.  This is their second location, with the original in Grosse Point.  “I’m really excited to be in Ferndale.  In Grosse Point we have regular customers, but here there are so many new faces all the time.  It’s an up and coming place where people want to come and hang out, and just be part of it all,” Roekle said.  candlewickHOLIDAY

The Rust Belt Market features many indie artists under one roof.  And for this weekend only visitors can stop by the Detroit GT booth for a free “I <3 Ferndale sticker.”  Rena Hopkins of Detroit Iguana was at her booth on “Black Friday,” selling ornaments, jewelry, and steampunk art.  “Lots of people came in today to browse.  There’s so much to chose from in here that people need ideas. They’ll come in and look, and then come back because they saw something that stuck in their minds.”
