The Blog

Welcome to our blog! We love our city so much and can’t wait to share with you some of our favorite places to eat, shop, or just spend an afternoon. We will share places around Grand Rapids that have been long time favorites as well as new finds as we discover them! Stick around as we explore Grand Rapids and all it has to offer.


Small business saturday - Rebel

Today we are talking about the cutest shop you ever did visit, located in Eastown!

Rebel Reclaimed located at 1555 Wealthy St SE has been a huge hit for Grand Rapids residence over the years. It all began in a small 400 sq ft space on E Fulton in May of 2010 and gradually grew in charm and space as it relocated in 2013 to a storefront on Robinson. This is where I first stepped into Rebel, a little shop that had left quite the impression on me . . .


small business saturday - Art of the table

Welcome back, friends, to another blog post about the small businesses we LOVE in Grand Rapids! This week we toured around the Wealthy Heights neighborhood and sure enough, it did NOT disappoint . . .


small business saturday - Funky Buddha Yoga

Hello friends!

Today we bring you a business that was a little out of my comfort zone. I have done a few yoga classes in my life, but most were free and I sat in the back of the class not expecting to learn much and trying not to embarrass myself! This afternoon was such a different experience for me and I am excited to share it with you . . .
