HID - How would you describe your store to someone that has never been there before?
Clare & Wayne (POST Co-founders) - We can always tell when someone walks into POST for the first time. There's usually a "wow", and they stop at the front door to try and take it all in. The outside of our building is a bit understated as it was built by the government as a US Post Office in 1940. The inside of POST is a completely different experience. We've converted the space to a retail store, carrying over 300 independent handmade brands, along with production facilities for 3 small businesses. It's a feast for the eyes.

Everything we carry at POST is handmade, much of it is one-of-a-kind, and some of it is made right here in the building. Mutual Adoration, Tait Design Co, and Scarlet Crane Creations design and make all of their products right here, at POST. Of the other 300 or so brands we carry, 80% are Michigan based companies, and over 90% are women-owned businesses. People can support multiple local small businesses in one place at POST.

HID - What's the story behind your shop?
POST - Clare Fox and Wayne Maki met and founded Mutual Adoration in 2012. Mutual Adoration builds custom furniture, picture frames, and housewares primarily from reclaimed wood sourced in Detroit. In 2017, we founded POST - an open concept retail store and workshop space on Detroit's East Side. Housed in a former US Post Office, built in 1940, POST carries over 300 brands of handmade goods from small independent makers, as well as offering hands-on workshops in contemporary craft.

HID - Give us the top three gift ideas from your store this holiday season. 
POST - I'll attach links to some of our most popular collections. Because so many of our products are one-of-a-kind, it's often easier to link to a group of similar products. :)

Handmade Marbled Picture Frames are built right here in the building, and each one is marbled by hand. They're a unique and fun gift!

Valet Trays are always a popular gift this time of year. They're great gifts for guys, and the perfect place to stash your keys, wallets, and all the things that end up in your pockets throughout the day.

Craft Kits are a super fun way to be creative while you're at home! We have a huge variety of DIY kits.

HID - Do you have any COVID-19 conscious options in place for your shoppers?
