It’s true, we love the sprawling vineyards and epic miles of sand dune shores just as much as the next Michigander, but some of the most wonderful things about Traverse City are so small you really have to pay attention to even notice. It isn’t the kind of stuff tourists come to see; it’s for those of us who walk the same sidewalk every day and still get stopped in our tracks by the most lovely little unremarkable things.
So this week’s wallpaper is inspired by unseen Traverse. This shot from the Grand Traverse Commons doesn’t feature the pinnacled rooftops, but rather a beautifully charactered turquoise handrail from one of the yet-to-be remodeled state hospital buildings.
The Village at Grand Traverse Commons just so happens to be the new home of one of our most favorite local events—the Traverser City Maker’s Market! This super-cool indie art/craft fair is coming up in just a few weeks, and we can’t wait to see all the rad handmade art and clothing and crafty stuff this year. Check out the Maker’s Market website for all the details.
