Happy Friday Everyone! We finally made it to the freaking weekend. (insert Rihanna here)

Today, I'm featuring another one of my favorite shops in Fenton, MI. Bridge Street Exchange is a mens clothing and provisions shop who lives in downtown Fenton. This shop houses many wonderful brands including: Shinola, Stormy Kromer, Odouds, Iron + Resin, Nixon, and many more amazing brands. From grooming products, to boots, clothing, stickers, glassware, and patches ; this shop has anything and everything you could ask for.

Here's more about Bridge Street and Kevin the owner:

It started with an idea and a $10,000 credit card. When Kevin Begola quit his job in the insurance industry a few years ago, he dove head-first into the world of men’s wedding rings.
It stemmed from his own experience: when Begola got married, he noticed that the focus was on the bride and her wedding day, but there weren’t a lot of options for men to express their personalities. So he connected with a few ring manufacturers and launched Titanium Buzz, a website offering a unique selection of camouflage and sports-themed bands.
The business quickly took off, and about three years ago, the need for a brick and mortar shop became evident.
“People were finding us on the internet and showing up at our office in a building next to a medical dialysis center, wanting to look at rings – it just didn’t feel right,” says Begola.
A friendly real estate market and small town charm led Begola to Linden, where he opened a men’s retail store specializing in menswear, wedding bands and other accessories. Bridge Street Exchange carries top brands including Shinola, Stormy Kromer and Thorogood Work Boots, to name a few. In 2018, Begola moved his brick and mortar shops few miles away to 104 S. Leroy Street in Fenton.

As a purveyor of supporting local and shop that holds a lot of the companies that I pride myself in supporting, you usually can find me bouncing around Fenton rather frequently. Stopping in at Crust for a pastry then heading over to this shop for a glass of root beer! Oh yeah, they have a root beer stand. 

If you guys are ever in the area, treat yourself to something good at Bridge Street. Trust me... Every time I go in, I come out with at least a couple bags.
