Allegan County Antiques Market


Sunday I went with my friend Kristi to the Allegan Antiques Market.  What a blast!  I can't believe I didn't know this was going on just an hour away from home.  I found a few pieces for the T. house, and two for Holden's room.  Before I show you those, here are a few great pieces I loved.  Who knew we had our very own Scott's and we didn't even have to go to Atlanta, GA!?
If you saw yesterday's post you know our new house is brown with a capital "B"!  I want three chairs like this for our front stoop to add some color and liven it up a bit.  

I would love one of these bowls but I had too many other items on my list!

Gor-geous table.  
Can you even handle all the beautiful lines and details?

I bought this drum shade for Jack's room.  I think it's from the 50's.  It's so unique but still relevant and perfect for a little boy. :-)

This rocking bench was awesome but more than I wanted to spend.  It reminds me of weekends at my Grandma's cottage.  Wouldn't you love it in canary yellow? 

Kristi and I were all over this painting.  We were like moths to a flame.  The sad news is there was a white scratch near the ribbon in her hair that was really obvious in person. Major bummer.  

How fantastic are these baskets?  Next month I want one.  If my "new basement" client is reading this--I think this would be great in your space!

I bought this for the T. house.  We're going to use it for the pink bedroom.

I even found this full size bed for the same pink bedroom along with the dresser below!

.    I'm not crazy about the pink hardware, but it's an excellent brand and we did not pay full price!

This stunning beauty was $550.  A similar piece made today would easily cost thousands.

Could you die over these details!?

It took all my restraint not to buy this for one of my boys.  What boy wouldn't want a little fire truck sign in his room?

These doors are made of bubble glass.  Have you ever seen such doors?  This was the show stopper of the day.  Good thing Kristi didn't buy it because we had to work some serious magic just to fit everything in her truck.

See the magic?  This small SUV held a dresser, full bed, side table, painting, drum shade, two glass water jugs, a brass stool, and a chandelier.  It was nothing short of a miracle and I can't wait for next month!

Which piece is your favorite?
Is there a fantastic antique market in your area?

  18. I have heard about the Allegan Antiques Market for years and have never made a pilgrimage. After seeing your finds and hearing your endorsement, I'll have to pick up my sister in law in Kalamazoo and venture on over sometime soon!
