As a patron of the Melrose Trading Post, you may be familiar with Detroit Trash and their innovative displays. Every Sunday the family of artists sets up at the bottom of the main staircase leading up to the food court. Their jewelry made of tiny antique pieces and is put together by Sydney and her mother Tiffany. Sunny May is the youngest of the family, and her visionary artwork is proudly displayed on the staircase. Matthew, the father of the family, is a man with an eye for antiques and the talent to build, restore and repurpose antique finds into new treasures. Visiting this family at the market on Sundays gives you a glimpse into the creativity and love infused in Detroit Trash.
Now you don’t have to wait until Sunday to see them!
The Allison family now has a store on Beverly Boulevard, about half a mile away from the market. This gorgeous space not only has their creations, but it also has the creations of their fellow makers from the market and artists they are connected with. The store is in a beautiful 1920’s building by Laurel Avenue. The central loft space creates a platform perfect for Sunny to paint her latest work, Sydney to make jewelry and for local bands to put on a show.
Companies from MTP featured in the store include Human Tree Robot, Purr and Sparrows Press, to name a few.
The store is a must-see space and definitely worth MANY visits. Stop by and see what they’re working on!

It will be fun to watch this store evolve over time.
Congratulations to the Detroit Trash Family!
Check them out in B144 every Sunday at the Melrose Trading Post: DetroitTrash.net
Bonus: The LA Times wrote this sweet article about Detroit Trash back in 2014.
Asha, a recent Fairfax High School graduate, has been working with the Vendor Manager (Natalie) of the Melrose Trading Post to learn how to run her own business. On her own, Asha taught herself jewelry making and has been creating her own jewelry for years.
Through the Greenway Arts Alliance and the Greenway Institute, Asha was given an opportunity to sell her jewelry at the Melrose Trading Post. In exchange for a free booth, she received first hand experience of selling her creations. With some mentorship from the Greenway / MTP staff and a few willing MTP Vendors, Asha’s business has blossomed.
Asha’s brand is called Nameless Jewelry… and she even has her own website! She has business cards, a signature display set up and very friendly customer service skills.
As a recent Fairfax High School graduate, Asha will continue to support our efforts to help other Fairfax students pursue their own business ideas. She will also be in the market selling her jewelry once in a while.
Be sure to say hello when you see her in the market!
