Marlowe Stoudamire has created his own unique idea of a mash-up at the border of Detroit and Grosse Pointe.
His new project, MASH Detroit, features mash-ups that merge art experience, curated retail, pop-ups, meetings and events in the 6,000 square foot space at Mack and Ashland on Detroit’s east side. It is new kind of co-working that celebrates the intersection of communities on the border of Detroit and Grosse Pointe. MASH Detroit is located at 14711 Mack Ave.
“I envision MASH being a hub for the community where people can share ideas and new experiences with each other,” says Stoudamire.
You can get an idea of what it’s all about this Saturday, November 12, when MASH will host its first Shop@MASH 2nd Saturdays event. There will be live performances during the retail portion where you can buy products from local entrepreneurs and vendors. Shopping runs from 11 am – 6 pm and performance art from 1 pm – 3 pm.

Here is the list of vendors at this Saturday’s mash-up:
- Good People Popcorn
- Salika Jewels
- Traveling Pants Company
- Flavorful Creations LLC
- Bird Bee
- SZABO BAZAAR
- Sisters On A Roll
- Pink Elephant Products
- Hustlers Wife L.L.C.
