ann arbor's unique boutique
What is Heavenly Metal?
Heavenly Metal is a curated collection of handcrafted jewelry, gift and art goods, purses, apparel and footwear from around and beyond the USA . . . ever-changing with the seasons and our whims . . . in one lovely space.
Our wish for you: embrace the notion “you are as beautiful as you feel.”
Wear it. Live it.
We are located in downtown Ann Arbor’s Kerrytown district. Walking through our front door is like a breath of fresh air as you take in the cozy feel, vibrant colors, vintage and repurposed display pieces, and of course all of our wonderful merchandise!
Come relax in our artful shop. Or shop with us online! Nearly all of what is found in store is available in our online shop. Our packages are always wrapped to bring a smile when opened.
Oct. 5 was our two-year anniversary at 208 N. 4th Ave.
We had a unique opportunity the Fall of 2016 to take over a larger storefront with lots of foot traffic. It’s a beautiful big space, but just as homey as our former location on E. Ann St. We’re between the Teahaus and Motte & Bailey Booksellers and two doors from the People’s Food Coop. We love being on busy 4th Ave, in the heart of the Kerrytown District.
We have two shop dogs: Lucy is my 17-yr old, 6 pound papillon. Willi is my 15-yr old 6 pound toy poodle. Come in for all the love you can want from Willi; Lucy is a cranky old girl now and prefers to be left alone.
Sonny Hurtado and Nate Bennett make up my Heavenly Metal family. Sonny is Social Media Director, managing marketing and the online store. Sonny would love feedback on our daily instagram, facebook, and twitter posts. If you’d like to reach out to him, email him here. Nate is the store branding director. Please email him here if you have inventory, product, returns, or other questions. Saleswoman supreme Nancy Szabo is on sabbatical.

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 located 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! Get some 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 $45 for all cuts. Call or email me for an appointment.
