Altered Designs in Holly, Michigan

It’s always beautiful in Holly, no matter the weather. But when it’s sunny and 72 degrees like it was today, that’s hard to beat!

Holly, Michigan is the home of Altered Designs, our favorite place to shop in town.

Many people who visit Altered Designs comment on how friendly everyone is. All guests are greeted warmly and immediately sense the welcome is genuine.

Holly Harrington-Herrick and her team at Altered Designs do an incredible job arranging items throughout the store. A person could visit every week and still have the feeling they have walked in the first time. Inspiring that kind of interest is not an easy task. The folks at Altered Designs are particularly gifted at doing just that.

There is an unmistakable warmth at Altered Designs that encourages folks to slow down just a bit. Breathe deeply, take shorter steps, and take the time to see with new eyes.

One of the most commonly spoken phrases in a retail space is, “No thanks, I’m just looking.” At AD, when help is offered to guests, I think a more likely response could be, “Right now I’m just enjoying this.”

I absolutely love the copper wire tree artwork. It’s difficult to describe the beauty of these pieces. Bundles of copper wire are twisted and shaped into amazing treescapes. The frames are handmade for each individual piece. There are just two photos here, but many incredible copper wire creations are available. The artwork will capture your attention and you’ll immediately begin thinking where in your home you should place it.

Many artisans make up the family at Altered Designs. Visitors will never, however, have the feeling of moving from one “vendor booth” to another. We are happy to be a part of the artisan group at Altered Designs with our “Up North Flannels”.

Altered Designs has an ideal location in Holly, 101 South Saginaw Street, on the south-east corner of South Saginaw Street and East Maple Street.

Of course, whenever we go to Holly, we start our morning with breakfast at the Bittersweet Cafe. The cafe is right across the street from Altered Designs. With delicious food, great coffee, and a very cozy place to enjoy a meal while shopping in Holly, Bittersweet Cafe is a favorite.
