First Friday is May 6th!

Be Sweet! What is perfect thought for the month of May! Being kind to others is also the premise on which the Be Sweet company was founded.

Friday, May 6th is Northville's First Friday Art Walk. Visit us at the Dancing Eye Gallery that night and meet Yvette Jenkins who represents Be Sweet handbags designed by Mielie in South Africa. These colorful, unique bags are made in a hooked rug technique of recycled fabric by Xhosa women who have learned new skills and invested in their future in a region that once offered little economic opportunity. Some of the profits from sales help support a local school in South Africa.

Yvette will also bring wall hangings and table runners besides purses. Special orders may be taken too.

Another great product that will be available will be the limited edition "yoga for schools" yoga meditation cushion. A percentage of the sales of each cushion goes toward bringing yoga training and supplies to a Michigan school in need.

So, if you are looking for an accessory that is recycled, supportive, thoughtful and one-of-a-kind art, then stop in next Friday from 5-8 p.m. to view the trunk show!

Note: We will be open and accessible during the exciting Streetscape Enhancement Project, as will all businesses. You can check out the progress during the Art Walk. You can also get updates at
