This holiday season at the Detroit Center for Design + Technology is usually filled with artists and designers selling their wares for Noel Night. One of those artists has been Mama Coo’s Boutique Owner Lana Rodriguez. Her Corktown shop is a must-visit any time, and especially when searching for perfect vintage or handmade gifts. Here’s how she’s getting ready for the shopping season in 2020: Meet Lana Rodriguez, owner of Corktown-based Mama Coo’s Boutique, a resale and vintage shop that also carries handmade pieces by local artists and imported goods. Rodriguez, a Southwest Detroit native, makes it her mission to show representation and to be inclusive. “We do this through the inventory we carry and our price point,” she said.
Detroiter Miriam Pranschke can’t wait to welcome you to Boro, her consignment and resale shop in Detroit, this season. “I love seeing what our consignors bring in and learning the history behind the pieces and stories of when they were worn! Not only is our selection of products unique, beautiful and high-quality, but our consignors and customers are too!”
