Dear Friends,

It is with a heavy heart that we have decided to retire our beloved Forum Detroit. It has served the Polonia Detroit for over 10 years, and was a source of joy for many. However, after many months of inactivity, the time has come to bid it farewell.

Deepest and warmest thanks to all those who contributed to Forum discussions over the years, either by sharing their thoughts or reading those of others. Your presence and participation served as a building block of this online polish community.

Forum Detroit

Tekla Vintage in Hamtramck

Hello, forumdetroit. I want to welcome you all to Tekla, a new business I have opened at 9600 Jos. Campau, right across the street from Srodek's. Tekla will offer vintage clothing, jewelry, and accessories, as well as vintage linens and houseware, the work of local craftspeople and artisans, and other new and old things to make your life more lovely. Folks may not realize that I have been involved in buying, selling, collecting, and wearing vintage clothing since the early 1970s. But more and more it seemed to me that selling items here and there out of my house did nothing to bolster Hamtramck's business climate. I've told people over and over when they complain about empty storefronts in Hamtramck, that they need to put their money where their mouth is and invest here, not wait for someone else to do it. So last year my husband and I bought a traditional storefront building, which some of you may remember as the old Cody Hat store. I spent the next 14 months renovating it to some of its former beauty (one of the reasons I've been too busy to hang around the forum...)  And now, though not all the pieces are in place yet, Tekla is open to the public. Tekla's hours are 11am-9pm Thurs.-Sat., and 12-4pm on Sundays. Come by and shop, enjoy some conversation in the cozy seating area, and watch the world go by on Jos. Campau. And don't forget to visit us regularly on facebook for updates on events and lots of photos.

Thanks, everyone!

Re: Tekla Vintage in Hamtramck

We are closed tomorrow. I'm at work in Ann Arbor and then have a meeting at night. I'll be in the store after 12pm on Friday.

Re: Tekla Vintage in Hamtramck

Karenka, best of luck in your business venture. Coming fall I shall visit your new store. Who nows, we may share vintage "stogie" in the "cozy corner" smile

Re: Tekla Vintage in Hamtramck

Btw, what is the origin of the store name?
Is it as "old aunty Tekla"?

Re: Tekla Vintage in Hamtramck

Thanks, everybody. Yes, ZB, I chose "Tekla" because it is an old-fashioned woman's name that also sounds modern. It transcends many European countries' borders. It is easy to say and spell. And it has, if I can say this, "balls."

Re: Tekla Vintage in Hamtramck

I just wonder if Zoomboy had the chance to visit "Tekla". By the way-it was my great great grandmother's name. Also, I have some vintage clothes such as shoes, dresses, and few jackets that I do not need. I wonder if karenka would be interested.
Saw the article. I think in Metro Times.

Re: Tekla Vintage in Hamtramck

Odwiedziłam Teklę, nawet zrobiłam zakupy.
Karenka, pomysł doskonały, a w sklepie każdy może cos znależć dla siebie. Niebawem znowu tam zajrzę.

Re: Tekla Vintage in Hamtramck

Zoomboy never made it to Tekla (unless he came by some time when I was not there...) Thanks for the nice words, AK. And JCP, I'm always interested in vintage. Let me know any time you'd like to bring some things by the shop, or I can come to you if that's easier.

Re: Tekla Vintage in Hamtramck

karenka, I will make it ready and both ways would work. I live in Oxford. I used to work in Hamtramck. I can also take photos and send it to you so you can see if you are interested.
