Bureau gets busy

Girl in the D was delighted to sit down with Claire Nelson, half of the duo behind Midtown's Bureau of Urban Living, on Wednesday evening.

Along with discussing the positive response she and husband-Francis Grunow have received since opening their modern home goods store in April 2007, Nelson filled me in on some of the cool new products on tap for the holidays and talked about two upcoming public events that Bureau is partaking in.

The first, Yard Sale in a Loft, takes place on Saturday, October 6 from 11 am to 4 pm at the Stuber-Stone Lofts. Along with urban homegoods and unique gifts from Nelson's Bureau of Urban Living, event attendees will find modern furniture from Mezzanine; fashions from Wound Menswear; edgy womenswear from Birmingham-based Michelle Rachelle; graphic tees from Superior Belly's Zack Ostrowski; art from CPOP; and sterling silver jewelry from Vault 17.

The Stuber-Stone building is located at 4221 Cass in Midtown.

On Wednesday, October 10, from 5 - 9 pm, Bureau invites you to drop in for the launch party of Pop Art Monkey's new textile line. Meet the creator of the fun popartmonkey products, Carl Oxley III, and check out the newest popartmonkey pillows and coin purses. New paintings from Carl will also be available for purchase.

Can't make it to either of these events? Visit Bureau when it's convenient for you. Detroit's newest modern home goods and gift store is open Tuesday - Saturday from 11 am to 7 pm.
