Now, Jennyfer’s expanding her services with her most recent venture called “All Things Detroit,” where she’s bringing small businesses and consumers together under one roof.

All Things Detroit is not just a company or organization, a statement on the website reads.  It’s a semi-annual event that will showcase local businesses.  The event is expected to draw more than 12,000 consumers to Detroit’s historic Eastern Market to explore more than 250 small businesses in the metro area.

“I love curating and creating events here in Detroit because I feel I have found the secret formula that helps to connect people in the community,” said Crawford. “When crowds come out to experience an event I have organized, they are supporting small business owners. I like to think I am offering something different, helping others discover their next favorite product.”

The event titled “National All Things Detroit Day” will feature unique apparel, local treats, artisan, and one-of-a-kind masterpieces, according to event organizers.

The first event will take place on April 5. 

Ticket prices range from $5 to $20. The $20 ticket will allow consumers to Beat the Crowd and they will receive one full hour of shopping before open to the public, complimentary food truck and beverage vouchers, an All Things Detroit tote bag, and at least 50 % off from certain vendors during Beat the Crowd hours.
