Holiday Gift Ideas: Rust Belt Market

Holiday Gift Ideas: Rust Belt Market

(Crystal A. Proxmire, orig. Nov. 27, 2019)

Ferndale, MI -For many gift ideas in one place, there’s the Rust Belt Market at the corner of 9 Mile and Woodward in Downtown Ferndale.

There are over 50 vendors in Rust Belt Market, selling everything from clothes and jewelry, to found items, posters, games, toys, plants, personal care items, candles, snacks and more.

There is even a bar so shoppers can sip and shop, and a tank of poison dart frogs can provide a moment of distraction from the bustle of the holiday shopping crowd.

Among the vendors is Detroit GT, with shirts, hats, buttons, stickers and more, usually with a local – sometimes funny – theme. Oakland County Times recently profiled Detroit GT creator Chris Gorski about his work. Fly K9 and Je’Tone Cherene’s pet-wear creations were also featured. As well as Attack Hunger, a business with cool shirts and a cause.

Below are just some of the many delights to be found inside this unique artist’s market. Find our more at
