Review on Lion and Blue

Charlize Carver, Economics Reporter

There are many local businesses in Lakewood but a favorite would have to be Lion and Blue. If you live here, you have definitely heard of this store and have most likely been inside. You can find some of their products on their Facebook website page but I feel as though you will get a more enjoyable experience in person.

Walking in the doors of this store, you can immediately get a feel for the comfortable environment they have. The customer service is very nice, as is the decor around the room. As soon as you walk in, you are greeted by one of their employees and in my experience, they have all been friendly and helpful. The store is decorated with tons of their products including tapestries, lanterns, and Tibetan prayer flags. The smell of the store, from burning incense, provides a homey feeling. The store is usually very peaceful inside with little to no ruckus.

This store has many unique artisan-made products. I have bought a tapestry, incense, and shoes from this store and I have nothing bad to say about the quality of the items. While they can be a little pricey, I feel that it is worth it; you would be supporting a local business and getting a product that will last. The next time you decide to roam the streets of Lakewood, head down to Detroit because it’s located right between the Root and The Exchange. I definitely think Lion and Blue should be your first stop.
