City Guide

Shopping - Downtown Ypsilanti

Ypsilanti has two historically rich commercial districts: its downtown on Michigan Avenue and Depot Town, nestled next to the Huron River on East Cross. Depot Town hosts one-of-a-kind shops, including Jim MacDonald Antiques and Apple Annie's Vintage Clothing. Salt City Antiques carries oriental rugs and modern-retro furniture from more than a dozen dealers, while offerings from Artifact & Whimsy range from new handmade crafts and jewelry to vintage furniture. Baron Glassworks studio, on Railroad Street, showcases luminous hand-blown pieces. Nelson Amos Studio features the artist's portraits, landscapes, and cityscapes of Ypsilanti landmarks. The Eyrie is a Michigan-centric artisan gift shop, while the Brick and Mortar Modern General Store revitalizes the concept of a bygone general store with contemporary home decor, bath and body products, art supplies, and dry goods. Coin collectors head to Old Towne Coin & Gold, while Schultz Outfitters lures area fly fishermen with its selection of rods, reels, lines, tying supplies, waders, and more.

Downtown Ypsilanti stores promise a variety of unique finds, including restored architectural antiques and period lighting at Materials Unlimited, upcycled and repurposed furniture and home goods at a2vintage, and eclectic vintage treasures at Bowerbird Mongo. World of Rocks has unearthed piles of fossils, meteorites, geodes, shells, and minerals; the Rocket stocks novelty toys and candy; and Puffer Red's is a source for urban clothing and shoes. True to its name, the original location of Mix offers a wide variety of new and used wearables and artful objects. At the ModelCave Hobby Shop, a vast array of new and vintage model building kits draws enthusiasts from as far away as Toledo and Kalamazoo.
