'FOUND' in Ann Arbor

A couple of years ago at the 3rd Sunday Market in Bloomington, Illinois, I met Mary. This past weekend I finally had a chance to visit her delightful gallery, 'FOUND' in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
Lucky for me, Mary was in - here she is:
'FOUND' features the creations of local artists who use vintage materials to create jewelry, art & accessories. A few carefully selected new items are mixed in. 
Then there are the drawer units & cubbies...oh. my. heart!
I loved them all.  
Best of all, you're allowed 
to open every one of those drawers!
Inside are letters, numbers, rubber stamps, game pieces, ephemera, photos, 
and little "junk" items of every description. 
It's all carefully sorted, organized and priced. 
I can't imagine the amount of time it takes 
to sort and price all of those little treasures.

Check out the FOUND blog and site and
if you're ever near Ann Arbor be sure to stop in; 
I know you'll love it!


  1. Well, this sure looks like fun to me! I love to dig into things like this!

  2. How were you ever able to leave. They'd have to turn off the lights and throw me out or I'd be lost in there forever!

  3. I think I need a few of those cubbies and drawer units, to organize my life! I would love to take a road trip some day and visit all of the neat places like this that I see in blogland!

  4. Oh yes, I would still be searching every little corner of each drawer and cubby for wonder-filled treasures......You must have felt like a kid in a candy shop!

  5. OMG - you must have been there for days and days! I would have been I can tell you! What a delight and thank you for introducing us to this wonderful eye candy and blog!

  6. I know you were in heaven with all those slender drawers!

  7. Oh Jan I ADORE the glass fronted drawer cabinet....I've been LUSTING for one of these for YEARS....** sigh ** ....I reckon if I went to Found, poor Mary would be forgiven for thinking I was a mad cabinet stalker....!!

    Yes you are RIGHT my Friend....Texas it is....Only THIS time I'm bringing a fellow Aussie Keep Of The Past with me....Together we'll be a force to be reckoned with.... :o) !!

    Cheers for now Lovey,
    Tamarah xx

  8. Sigh, I love the overall look of your blog.

    We have a "Found" here in Phoenix that is similar.

    Make sure you link up with your glamourous bridemaid pics tomorrow. :)

  9. That looks like an amazing store!!!

  10. I'm so glad you stopped in! And thank you for the wonderful shout out for FOUND. Hope to see you next time you are in the area OR when I hit another one of your shows. Regards, Mary from FOUND
