I have been a collector of vintage things as long as I can remember. Being in Southwest Michigan by the Big Blue Water (Lake Michigan) there are a lot of old homesteads. Many times these estates pass on to a younger generation who do not value old, vintage items as much as this old codger does. So when they are offered, I buy.
I have a problem selling some of my purchases due to the fact that everything old seems to be of great value to me. Not having a lot of money growing up, every purchase was significant and meant something. Not like today’s society. A disposable society.
So when I get too much stuff and my life feels cluttered I sell my precious old vintage stuff. Usually to make room for more “new” vintage items.
So I decided to invest in a booth at Sweet Pickens, an antique mall full of vendors in a big red barn between South Haven and Bangor Michigan. This is a new venture for me, having a place to actually sell from. This place just felt right. I believe it will become a real destination place for antiquers and collectors of vintage items and homemade crafts.
So be sure to stop in at booth #21 and you will realize my prices are very reasonable, even quite a bit lower than you would expect. My goal is to give the person that buys one of my items the feeling that they just got a huge “feel-good” bargain on an interesting piece.
