Events and Collaborations

Due to COVID-19 all in person events have been canceled and our indoor seating is closed until further notice.  

Part of our mission at Vertex is to be a safe, welcoming, and inviting community space. 

We will hope to share our space with you again very soon!

First Saturday (Pay What Can) 

The first Saturday of every month we use a Pay What you Can model.  Pay more or less than our regular prices no questions asked.  

Each month we pick a different non-profit to support.  All proceeds from the day go to the non-profit of the month. 

Here are the organizations we have supported: 

June: The Bail Project @bailproject

July: Marsha P. Johnson Institute @mpjinstitute

August: Association on American Indian Affairs @associndianaffairs

September: Detroit Justice Center @detroitjusticecenter

October: LiNK @ UMich @linkumich

December: Fair Fight @fairfightaction

Please reach out if you would like to know specific amounts donated or if you have ideas of organizations to support! 


Join us on the third Saturday of every month to refill and stock up on your favorite waste free products from BYOC! Check out their website for more information. 

BYOC Co. is a mobile refill station serving Southeast Michigan. We operate on a bring your own container model for customers to refill their household cleaning and personal care products without the plastic packaging!
