Holiday Expo on Live in the D

It is the time of year for giving -- but not just gifts.

It’s an ideal time to provide support -- to our community and to those who may face challenges in their everyday lives.

At EXPO Michigan, a marketplace of pop-up shops, those who suffer from any type of disability are invited to exhibit for free.

Michael Spector, with EXPO Michigan, said it provides an opportunity for people with disabilities to exhibit their handcrafted items in a community setting, as well as an opportunity for people to start a small business.

The event, which began 10 years ago, has a wide variety of vendors that include arts, crafts, jewelry, pet gifts, purses, accessories and so much more.

By shopping at EXPO Michigan, customers can support those with disabilities, as well as the local economy.
