Welcome Mat: Yellow Dog Marketplace has 'always changing' lineup
Yellow Dog Marketplace has 'always changing' lineup
Former interior designer Marla Sanford has operated a variety of Metro Detroit retail locations since 2014, but her newest in Clarkston must be one of the best. Open since 2019, the 3,400-square-foot Yellow Dog Marketplace is an “always changing” and juried group of handcrafted vendors, select antique dealers and retail. Items include vintage furniture, jewelry, books, ceramics, clothing, even a northern outpost of Eastern Market’s 3 Dogs, 1 Cat and so much more. “It’s a wonderful place that supports and promotes many Michigan products and artists,” Sanford says. Located at 9861 Dixie HIghway, the marketplace is open Wednesday through Sunday. For more information, call 248-925-6115 or visit yellowdogmarketplace.net.
