I have been picking all winter at my secret honey hole and came up with some great items, some antique, some collectibles, and many vintage, interesting and unique pieces that you may not see every day.

Sweet Pickins Antique Mall is fast establishing itself as a antique hunter’s destination antique shop. Collectors of all kinds are pleasantly surprised at the variety of merchandise being offered by over 80 vendors.

The mall itself is in a huge red barn out in the country, a former collector car museum. It is very well organized and laid out extremely well. It is also the cleanest antique mall you will step foot in.

Sweet Pickins has a wonderful friendly staff that is knowledgeable and very helpful. Just ask them, and they will help you find what you are looking for.

The coffee is hot, tasty, and free. If Annette has any baked goods when you stop in, DO NOT HESITATE to try some. Her baked goods make me weak in the knees!

This place is rockin with some great new vendors injecting even more positive energy into this antique shopping destination. It is hard to imagine it constantly getting better than the previous week – but it does.

South Haven Antiques

There are really incredible antiques, awesome, hard to find collectibles, and some handmade crafts that will excite you! There are some great “primitive” vendors, (I like primitives and mid century modern – well almost anything old and unique!) that have the most beautiful booths set up displaying their wares.

Sweet Pickins Antique Mall

The people that work at Sweet Pickins are about as friendly as can be. The coffee is free for the asking (and it’s goooood!). Plus if Annette has baked anything, do whatever you can to get a muffin, cookie, or other snack in your hand, and then your mouth! I think her baking could be a biz in itself!

Now, I want you to make sure you visit the world famous “Booth 21”. There you will find unique stuff from a unique individual. When you go in to Sweet Pickins, you will be greeted “Welcome to Sweet Pickins”. Immediately askWhere is the famous Booth 21? Big smiles will be seen!

Happy 1 Year Anniversary Sweet Pickins, South Haven Antiques

It has been a fantastic year at Sweet Pickins Antiques, Collectibles and Crafts. Annette and Ken, the owners, have poured their heart and soul into this wonderful passion of theirs.  And everyone of us can benefit from that!

South Haven Antiques

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!
