The Unicorn Feed & Supply featured Liam Pemberton, aka The Sheepish Chef and his delectable homemade goodies, especially mini gingerbread house kits. Do you recognize his locally famous proud parents! His mom, Amy (Clever Creations by Amy), makes fairy garden items, and is posing by the window display of her Bright Futures student's artwork made for the recent YpsiGLOW event. His father is one of our local magic wand makers: Professor Pemberton’s Wands & Accoutrements.
With the weather being as fine as it has been for this late in the year, there's no excuse not to enjoy November's First Fridays in Ypsilanti! So many great things are happening: Go to 2 West Michigan in the back parking lot for a free screening of Coco and celebrate Día de los Muertos, walk around town to check out the several art exhibits and sales (22 North, Pearl Street Gallery, The Gallery at Stone & Spoon, This That & The ODDer Things) and stop by Love at First Try to get a new outfit for 15% off. Be sure to bring your canned goods for our annual Thanks-for-Giving Food Drive!
