the merchandise displays in my store change nearly every day

As new goods arrive, most everything finds a new home. A designer’s dream-come-true: I get to redecorate all the time! Here’s pictures of some treasured merchandising from then . . . to now. Welcome to my world.

Vicki's Wash & Wear Haircuts

One of the things that makes Heavenly Metal so special is how it’s connected with Vicki’s Wash & Wear Haircuts, my other business sitting inside the same space. I’m rumored to be a jack-of-all-trades kind of woman: I cut hair along with being the owner, buyer, and merchandiser for the gallery/gift shop. Scratching your head? It makes perfect sense. Before and after your haircut, you get to hang out in a really cool store. Wow! Great earrings! Or scarf! Or outfit! It’s perfect with that new haircut!

About my haircuts: I do not provide chemical services nor do I wash hair; instead, what you get is a dry-cut commonsense haircut that will grow out well and is designed around your particular head of hair. I charge $40 for adults, $35 for kids under 13. Call or email me for an appointment.

ann arbor's unique boutique

Heavenly Metal is a very different kind of gallery/gift shop/boutique in downtown Ann Arbor’s Kerrytown neighborhood. I specialize in apparel, footwear, jewelry, purses and bags, recycled-metal artwork, books, scarves and accessories, home goods, and unique gift items. Tell me this isn’t truly a one-of-kind store featuring handcrafted works by local artists as well as artists from around the globe! Walking through the front door of Heavenly Metal is a breath of fresh air with my store’s yummy vibrant colors, vintage-finds display pieces, and creative product displays. You’re a visitor. A guest. Come relax and chill in my warm and artful shop.

Cait Quinn and Ally Ferguson are my Heavenly Metal family. Ally is the beautiful store model and part time worker-bee. Cait is the social media guru and store assistant. Cait would love feedback on her daily instagram, facebook, twitter, pinterest, polyvore, and tumblr postings. Email her here.

The online store followed in 2011, bringing the Heavenly Metal essence to gift recipients and households across the country and Canada . . . ‘cuz we love to share the love.
