Without local shops, shoppers would buy gifts exclusively from in-flight catalogs, forcing fathers to sneak into airplane wheel wells on Black Friday to order spy-camera blenders for their children.

  • For $15, you get $30 worth of gifts from the online store.
  • For $10, you get $20 worth of gifts at either the Rochester or Berkley location.

Owners Steve and April opened Catching Fireflies to accomplish their mission of spreading joy and laughter through novel gifts and the work of local artists. Help soak a parched and deserving mother with aromatherapy bath salts ($16.95) or the bio-journal Between You and Me, Mother ($15.95), a keepsake that will let subsequent generations know who the favorite child was. A handpainted rainbow light bulb ($18.95) renders paintbrushes obsolete, and an Alice in Wonderland personalized book ($29.95) makes kids and thematically appropriate children-at-heart the star of the Lewis Carroll classic. Catching Fireflies also carries Mitten State memorabilia and locally produced products, such as eco-friendly soy candles ($12), hand-poured in Michigan with essential oils, for the most selective sniffers.

Catching Fireflies

Every year at Ann Arbor Fest, Catching Fireflies founders Steve and April paused from manning their paper-arts booth to admire the folksy paintings of local artist Chris Roberts-Antieau. When they finally saved up enough to purchase their favorite piece, “Catching Fireflies,” it led to a flash of inspiration: a shop dedicated to showcasing similarly whimsical artwork and supporting local artists.

Now, Catching Fireflies’ inventory spans the spectrum, from leather-bound journals and wall art to children’s toys, and has been lauded in Rochester-Rochester Hills Patch. Once customers have honed in on wares, staff can gift-wrap them free of charge, thereby eliminating the need to conceal them behind Groucho glasses.
