Focus On

Focus On: Magic Mud Ceramics

Magic Mud continued to grow, and, in 2014, Claus and her partner Christopher Piper purchased a home on 12 acres near Ludington. They converted the walkout basement into a combination studio and retail location and opened for business in 2018. Now open year-round, customers can visit, peruse her wares, and take home one-of-a-kind pieces.

Focus On: Khnemu Studio

Soltysiak’s style of ceramic artwork is organic and earthy. She employs a wide variety of firing techniques -- wood fired, stoneware, Raku, smoke fired, pit fired, salt and soda fired -- and each creates a distinct look in the finished work.

Focus On: Northern Nail Polish

The newest product for Northern Nail Polish is an all-natural, soy-based polish remover. It has no acetone, and hence, no odor, and it actually nourishes your nails with lavender oil as it removes the polish. Just put a few drops on, let it sit for a few seconds, and use a cotton ball to rub it off. Magic!

Focus On: Jordan Valley Glass Works

Jordan Valley Glassworks creates some of the most amazing pieces of glass artwork you will find anywhere in the world, from shimmering paperweights, adorable critters, functional glassware, and “roasted” pumpkins to 450-pound sparkling chandeliers.

Bayberry Cottage

Bayberry Cottage is set up as a true home décor boutique, with every aspect of the home on display. The focus is on a casual lake lifestyle with fun, bold colors and designs. Gwen DeBruyn wanted to create a true one-stop-shop offering an extensive line of furniture and creative lighting options, artwork, homewares, and accessories like throw rugs and pillows.

The Rust Belt Market

As luck would have it, Tiffany had taken note of a large building on a busy corner in Ferndale. A building that had been empty for many years made for owners that were very motivated to lease it out. So, with a little savings and some family loans, the couple took a leap of faith and The Rust Belt Market was born.

Rebel Magnolia

Funky, eclectic, hip, stylish, earthy. All are words that readily describe Rebel Magnolia in Saginaw. Owners Hailey Cannon and Lauren Husen each bring their own special style and strong design skills to this chic boutique, Cannon with a fun bohemian vibe and Husen adding a mid-century modern flare.

Stonehedge Gallery

Stonehedge Gallery has an extensive array of art across all mediums. There is something for everyone. Sculpture, pottery, blown glass, furniture, dinnerware, papier-mâché, oil and watercolor paintings, fiber arts, stained glass, and handmade greeting cards that are each a work of art in their own right, are spread out over each floor of the building.
