The Bureau of Urban Living is fabulous store on Canfield and Cass (just off the TDH Route, a block North of the Avalon International Bakery) that sells home goods and gifts. They’ve got a nifty selection of stuff you won’t find everywhere.
More to the point, the First Thursday of every month, they donate 10% of their proceeds to a worthy cause. On August 7, they’re trying to help make Detroit a more bike-friendly city by helping Michigan Trails and Greenways Alliance, the organization behind the Riverwalk, and, I believe, the Rails to Trails I’ve written about in earlier posts.
The BOUL is open late on First Thursdays, so you have no excuse not to show up. You’re bound to find something you’ll like, and support a great organization, too.
