In the heart of Corktown, Detroit, Eldorado is a well-curated vintage general store that’s stocked with one of a kind trinkets and treasures from this journey. Vintage clothing for men and women, handcrafted accessories, gathered talisman, worldly household items and locally made goods fill its sun-bathed shop. It’s a paradise of lost treasure or perhaps a found dream. Erin is an absolute gem and can be found in the store to tell you where in her travels she spied her goodies or galavanting around the world to bring more lost treasures back to our fair city.
On December 19th, join Eldorado General Store, located at 1700 Michigan Avenue in Corktown for a last minute holiday shopping party. You can of course go there any day this month to pick up some goodies for your beloved stockings; however, on this special day, Other Records will be setting up a pop up record shop and local artists Sparklegarden (with her beautiful custom jewelry) and A Wool Story doing a holiday trunk show.
The idea for A Wool Story came from a passion for all things handmade and sustainable. By using recycled wool from reclaimed sweaters, A Wool Story provides limited-edition, handknit pieces that create no harmful environmental impact. Each piece is unique due to the limited quantity of yarn from each sweater, as well as the natural variations that arise from the process of dyeing it by hand.
Sustainability is taken into consideration in every step along the way, from the domestically sourced organic cotton sew in labels, to the handstamped recycled kraft paper hang tags, to the recycled paper mailers in which each order is sent out. Customers can feel good in A Wool Story knowing their piece was hand knit with love in a sustainable way. Unraveling sweaters to recycle yarn requires more work and preparation than just purchasing yarn from a store, but it’s a labor of love and provides the challenge to be more creative with the materials.
