Holiday Wreath Workshop

For the 5th year, Eldorado will be hosting a wreath workshop and we hope you can join us for a night of holiday fun with friends.

Gabriella of Grandiflora Manor will be teaching how to make a fresh, organic holiday wreath that you’ll take home with you. Winter greenery, berries, and interesting dried accents will be provided to adorn an 18” grapevine base to be finished off with ribbon. Gabriella will redefine the festive holiday wreath by demonstrating how to use these accents to create a wreath that beautifully reflects your style. 

We’ll have light bites and wine. Can’t wait to spend another holiday season with you.

Small Business Saturday

5th Annual Small Business Saturday Celebration
Complimentary Disco Ball Mimosas 
Gift of selenite crystal candle holder with purchases over $50

sbs_2018_fb.jpg

Friends (& friends I haven't yet met), 

I'm overwhelmingly grateful to think that we'll be celebrating our 5th Annual Small Business Saturday in Detroit together on Saturday, November 24th. 

We've always said that Eldorado is an art project and platform to provide people purchasing power, to engage with our community, and to make positive change. Each year as Eldorado grows, so does our neighborhood and city. And that growth means we get to put money in the pockets of the people we love most - fellow dreamers and small business owners doing big things. 

For the last 5 holiday seasons, we've stocked the shop with locally made goods, fair trade items, and objects ethically made with a bigger purpose or mission. But this year as I get ready to spend the holidays with you, I realize we've filled our space with over 60 makers, artists, and small businesses! This is such an unbelievable milestone because we opened with just a selection of vintage clothing and trinkets. Your decision to shop small and local all year round helped make this possible, and we want to celebrate with you.

Stop by on Small Business Saturday, we'd love to pour you one of our famous disco ball mimosas and cheers to what makes Detroit sparkle - it's small business community.

We thank you for shopping small this holiday season and beyond - your support makes a huge impact on people, their dreams, and your city. 

Erin
Owner + Chief Trinketeer
