The new home of the Chelsea Collection is a ways from downtown, but loyal antique shoppers surely will find it anyway. And the location, which housed the Peartree before it moved to Ann Arbor, provides room for a wider array of eighteenth-century furniture. The new space on Sibley Road has 2,900 square feet, about a third more than the old space. Co-owner Eric Lund says there’s enough room for more jewelry and linens too. Says Lund, “We have the opportunity to showcase more of the things we’ve had”—and pull some inventory out of storage.
The Chelsea Collection, 6065 Sibley, suite 2, Chelsea, 433–3300. Thurs.–Sun. 11 a.m.–5 p.m. Closed Mon.–Wed.
Just weeks after opening, Las Fuentes changed owners and menus—and got ready to change its name too.
The Mexican restaurant in Clocktower Commons in downtown Chelsea eventually will be known as Pancho Villa, says George Pacheco, its manager and the brother of the new owner, Eladio Pacheco. Eladio was a partner in the venture with the owners of Ypsilanti’s La Fuente but then decided to buy them out.
