Booth 21 Sweet Pickins Antiques

Booth 21 is my booth. It has been such a joy to have found something I enjoy doing so much at this point in life. I have always collected things, but never really wanted to sell any of them. That is until my wife rented me this booth for our 18th wedding anniversary so I could lighten my load of barn stuff.

It has now become somewhat of a mild addiction hunting for items to sell in my booth. I just try to look for old vintage, antique, or collectible “things” that I like and think others may appreciate too! Priced very reasonable, because I know how much I like the feeling of getting a deal as well as you do.

To view at YouTube –

I have acquired many projects over the summer to work on this winter. I can’t wait for the new spring season opener at Sweet Pickins. There will be a short recess/break from December 23, 2012 and re-opening again on February 21, 2013.

So come out to Sweet Pickins and ask for Booth 21 – they will surely smile and give you directions. (hint: it’s the one with duck decoys above the booth!)

Have a great Christmas shopping season and don’t forget that the best, unique gifts for that special person are right here at Sweet Pickins Antiques and Collectibles Mall. Don’t forget that South Haven Antiques and Booth 21 sent you on this fantastic voyage.

70+ Unique Vendors

When I first walked into Sweet Pickins Antiques ten months ago, I didn’t know what I was getting myself into.  I had some antique furniture I wanted to sell on consignment and had not even a whiff of what was about to happen.

My wife said, “why don’t you just rent a booth and sell your furniture and collectibles yourself”? I had never even thought about that but said “what the heck, a new adventure”!  I have now been bitten by the antique bug and have come down with a severe case of “antique pox”! (my wife paid my 1st months rent as an anniversary gift to me!)

Sweet Pickins Antiques Booth 21

I have been having a ball visiting my booth 21, stocking it with treasures I have collected over the years and “new” finds that I run across at estate sales or purchased from private parties. I did not even have a clue that I would sell so many items and realize what fun would be derived from this adventure!

So stop in at Sweet Pickins Antiques, Collectibles, and Crafts for a unique shopping experience.  The owners are very friendly and offer free coffee to compliment your excursion into vintage wonderland. And if there are any snacks on the day you visit, by all means snatch one up, as the baker/cook is awesome.  Like “make you weak in the knees” good!

Oh yeah, stop in and check out BOOTH 21 for the best deals! Ask someone where it is, or look for the duck decoys above the booth entrance. (it’s off to the left when you walk in). If you mention you saw this website, I’ll give you 10% off any purchase!
