Worldwide Mattress Outlet cuts the frills and clutter out of buying mattresses, giving customers a price-reduced shopping experience. An Extensive collection of mattresses, kept in their shipping bags, fills a dressed-down warehouse free of gussied up floor models and mannequins modelling footie pajamas. With no elaborate furniture or mock bedrooms to take up floor space, the outlet can maintain a stock of more than 1,200 mattresses, including those of custom sizes. While non-bed furniture may be barred from the premises, the warehouse is home to a staff of experienced mattress associates who happily help customers find their ideal sleep pad.
If Detroit is the Paris of the West, then Paris of Royal Oak is the Versailles of Detroit, replete with enough fashionable fashions, accessible accessories, and antique antiques to tempt even the restrained, nun-like tastes of a somber Marie Antoinette. With a dazzling blend of new and vintage wares, Paris presents a browsing vortex for flamboyant fashionistas and reclusive heiresses alike. Wearable wares include an ever-changing roster of vintage threads, whereas new glad rags keep things young and modern with graphic tees ($24–$32) and funky skirts, such as the Desigual Sofia ($99). New jewelry ranges from retro glass cocktail rings ($24) to kimono-fabric bangles ($18), and antique jewelry ($12–$50) and accessories add a distingué touch to the wardrobe of any attic-dwelling madwoman. Purchase a slew of vintage handkerchiefs ($5–$12) to toss out of the Amtrak window to a bevy of besotted beaus, and reward the one who catches the most with a summery straw fedora ($24).
