Books and Crepes

A few days ago, a few friends and I spent the day out and about in Detroit.

First, we went to the city's largest used book store. I had never been before and it was so overwhelming. Sticking to my budget seemed almost impossible, so I had to just stop looking after awhile.

They had some interesting signs

...and some interesting books.
We found some vintage postcards with handwritten notes on them.

I ended up getting a really random variety - a few for me, and a couple as gifts. I definitely need to go back soon.

Then we went to lunch at a crepes restaurant. I got one with chicken and broccoli, and my friends got dessert crepes with fruit and other deliciousness.

All in all, it was a really fun day. What are some of your favorite spots in your hometown?


  1. That looks like so much fun! We visited Detroit for the first time in January but didn't get to spend a ton of time downtown.

  2. man, i want to go to both places!!! looks uh-mazing!!!!

  3. I used to love going to that book store! There always was such a huge variety, so it's hard to look for something specific, but it was nice getting lost and coming out of there with something good.

  4. How amazing!!! I love all the neat books you found and interesting little treasures inside the books!! :)
    I want to go there!!!
    HAve a wonderful day + Happy St. Patty's day!!!

  5. OMGOSH! that books store looks like so much fun! :D

    Hmm some of my favorite places.. We have this AMAZING place called the sweet spot. I love their Frozen yogurts..All their sweets are homemade and have no (what I call) "crappy stuff" in them ;) lol
    I also love the local hot dog joint in our downtown. best hot dogs ever :) and they let you order from the kids menu.. no matter what age :)


Leave a note! I love to hear from you!
