What a wonderful little find in Plymouth! Found this store wandering the streets and just doing some browsing. Ended up doing lots of gift shopping for many people. Have recommended it many times to friends looking for essential oils, trinkets, crystals and minerals.
Loved chatting with the staff!
Earth Lore is a fantastic business, and one of the few shops of its type here in SE Michigan. The people are always friendly and helpful, even with the questions I am sure others would find strange at best. Their selection is amazing, and I didn't really believe it when they told me it changes daily, but every time I return there are whole new displays of things I would swear I didn't see last time. They are very knowledgeable about what they sell, considering the breadth of topics and hundreds of minerals. Definitely worth a visit - there is so much there, I can't imagine anyone not finding something of interest.
The only downside, to some folk, is that they sell a lot of incense and the store tends to have a strong aroma. I don't mind at all, and kind-of like that my books smell like the place months later, but people who are very sensitive to scent might have some trouble.
This place is great from the looks of it.. but my last ( and literally last) experience with them was the icing on the cake and I'm over It. Telling everyone I know with every Crystal I wear, how Disrespectful, rude, unintelligent and unreliable they are. Please stop using the word " Karma" as if you have good energy coming Your way. You get what you put out and I'm almost sure this Plymouth store will close just like the Livonia one at this pace. Keep up the good work! Everyone's going to Four directions in Ann Arbor for their Crystal and mineral needs :D. Happy karma! Wish I didn't have give them one star just to be able to post this review. That should say enough right there....
I cannot stress enough how wonderful this place is! I am a frequent patron (have a punchcard and everything!) and every time I return they have a whole new selection of things to choose from. This definitely the most professionally-run shop of this kind I have ever seen, right down to the cat who looks like he's dressed in a little tuxedo. First rate shop!
I have been shopping at Earth Lore for many years and I have always loved it. This last weekend, I was in and I purchased about $70 worth of items. I really, really had to use the restroom and I expressed this to a salesperson, explaining that I didn't think I would make it down the street to the nearest available restroom.
I understand that they do not have a public restroom due to keeping a safe in the back. However, I would not have minded if someone stood back there while I went in the bathroom. The truth is I was feeling very sick and not interested even remotely in their safe. I made my purchase in a hurry so that I didn’t relieve myself all over their floor (which would have been mortifying) and because I was in a hurry, I dropped the bag when the salesperson handed it to me, and one of the items that I bought broke into several pieces. I didn’t realize this until I got it home, since I was more focused on finding a bathroom.
I completely understand why they do not want people going in and out of their back room. However, I feel like sometimes it’s ok to bend the rules a little bit in the case of an emergency, which this most definitely was. Due to this incident, I will not shop here anymore. I can purchase the same things closer to my house. I just really came here for the atmosphere, which I realize now is actually kind of "crappy" if a person's discomfort is less important than a sale.
Earth Lore is my favorite store of all time. I love how I smell for the rest of the day after I visit. They have very unique things. You can find gifts for yourself or anyone you know, no matter what age. The prices vary, but I can always find something to fit my budge too. I love their store cat. The feel in the store is very peaceful. Highly highly recommend.
