Located in Ann Arbor's Historic Kerrytown District, FOUND provides vintage, artisan and new merchandise in this fun little shop. The mix of authentic vintage things for sale, plus art created using vintage or recycled materials is what makes this shop unique.
The antique and vintage pieces are hand-selected, with an emphasis on things with interesting graphic qualities. There are cabinets full of tiny treasures and ephemera for artistic souls. Antique sheet music, old cameras, rick-rack and buttons, little chairs, litho-tin toys, banks, doorknobs, pottery with simple lines, children's prints, books and do-dads of all sorts go in and out of the shop on a regular basis.
Artisans working with a variety of recycled materials add whimsey to the mix. FOUND showcases the work of about a dozen artists who incorporate "found" materials in their work. Where else could you find angels crafted from old silverware? We have baskets made from movie film trailers and woven from newspaper. Jewelry artists keep us stocked with great pieces created from old buttons, typewriter keys, snipets of paper, license plates and game parts. A local folk artist does fabulous paintings on salvaged wood. We have several others creating assemblage and mixed media pieces from found objects. While the majority of our artists are local, we also feature nationally recognized artisans at FOUND.
Rounding out our inventory are fun candles, accessories and holiday decor. We seek out lines that are different than what everyone else is carrying and things that fit in well with our vintage merchandise. We've become known as the place in Ann Arbor for candles in a crayon-box assortment of colors!
