Allegan Antiques Market Sat/Sun

Dan & I are excited, this weekend is the first Allegan Antiques Market of the season and the "Season Opener" is going to be realy special this year. It will be a 2 day show opening on Saturday (April 30) @ 10:00 am  and closing @ 4:00 and open again on Sunday(May 1st)  @ 8:00 am. Set up is Friday staring @ 1:00 so early buy starts then as well. Early buy is a worthwhile adventure if you are a serious antique buyer or junker. Early buy admission is $25.00 for on person or 2 for $35.00. See there are all kinds of deals to be had!
We had a wonderful opportunity to salvage in an old school that is being torn down. The school building was built in the 1890's. We will be bringing lots of treasures from there including a stack of vintage dictionaries, like the one pictured above. We will also have lots of garden. Oh ya, spring  - summer, we are into it!
So consider shopping on Friday, or we will see you Saturday or Sunday!

Spring Re Purposed - Up Cycled Handmades On Their Way to Bluedoor

Wow Spring is definitely in the air! We have been hanging out on the porch again, I planted seeds in the garden and have been creating with vintage finds. Shredded vintage paper nests filled with lavender, hand painted and glittered found wood eggs and vintage prints printed onto vintage sheet music - I think I hear the birds! All of these items on their way to this morning.

We just wanted to share with you some new photos of our space @ Then and Now in Petoskey. We were just there and added lots of product. Their season has started! and according to a recent report it is warm and very spring like and sales are strong. Dan's creations continue to amaze me. Here in Grand Rapids we are finishing up taxes planning our summer shows, with several new ones on the horizon (watch the side bar for upcoming shows), getting ready for the first Allegan Antiques Market, April 30th and May 1, readying the porch and digging in the garden.
Happy Spring to all!
