GMRENCEN Hosts a Holiday Pop-Up Shopping Experience in Support of Michigan Brands
The GMRENCEN is hosting its third annual Holiday Headquarters pop-up shop for Detroiters who are interested in supporting Michigan brands and companies. The shopping event is now open, free to the public and will run through December 22, 2018. Located inside the GMRENCEN in Tower 300, level one, near the AT&T and Verizon kiosks, the Holiday Headquarters is offering even more fashionable brands than any year before.
The event is open daily from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. (until 6:00 p.m. on Thursdays) and will feature Detroit businesses who offer specialty gifts such as kid’s clothing, handmade jewelry and artwork, candles, Holiday snacks and nuts, pet gifts and supplies and much more.
Here are a few of my favorite brands offering their specialty products and merchandise during Holiday Headquarters:
Rebel Nell began in 2013 with the mission to employ women facing barriers to employment in Detroit. Their mission has always been to educate them on financial management, life wellness and entrepreneurship, and most importantly, empower them to transition to a life of independence.
The team at Rebel Nell partners with local organizations to seek out women who have struggled to find employment. They hire these women as Creative Designers, teaching them to craft wearable art from fallen pieces of graffiti giving them support to succeed and lead in their environment and throughout their career. Rebel Nell products consist of bar pendants, bracelets, necklaces, signature pendants, clutches, and apparel.
The Peacock Room
The Peacock Room specializes in women’s apparel sizes 00-24 including beautiful accessories, stationery, gifts, furniture and more. Their special finds are inspired by the 1920s-1950s era. How glamorous is that? Celebrating 7 years in Detroit, owner Rachel Lutz has done a fabulous job glamming up The Fisher Building as well as the community and her clients.
The Peacock room has two locations, The Park Shelton, a restored 1920s luxury hotel, just north of the Detroit Institute of Arts and at The Fisher Building, Detroit’s most majestic historic building.
