a bit about us

"After leaving the corporate world behind we established Four Directions in 1993. Our plan was to create a genuinely one-of-a-kind store in a vibrant city known for its eclectic culture. While handpicking each item in Four Directions, we've never come across another store like ours – offering an eclectic mix of decorative and useful objects from metal to jewelry, minerals and fossils, stones and glass, pottery to paintings.

Since those many years ago, we are honored to have become a destination on Main Street, renowned for our expertise and enthusiasm – we can't wait to show you our latest finds!

We are proud to be part of the Ann Arbor retail community. As long-standing business owners, we are active members of the Main Street Area Association and serve on the board of the Business Improvement Zone.

Owning our store has brought us great joy over the years – with some amazing experiences and travel opportunities. We are truly grateful to be able to continue that adventure with you, our friends and customers.

See you next visit!"
