Allegan Antique Market

We spent the last two days in Allegan setting up with hubby's brother for the antique market.  It is held the last Sunday of every month from April thru September.  It is a very nice venue.  There is something for everyone there.

It was a little steamy reached 94 degrees and the humidity made its presence.  It didn't hold back the shoppers.  We sold some things and I sold a ton of vintage buttons.  I was very pleased with that.

Here is a few photos of some of my favorite vendors:
Count Your Blessings, lots of burlap, linen, lace.
I really wanted this wastebasket for the camper - went back it was gone!

The latest craze, Annie Sloan Chalk Paint

R. Lucas Scott Co. touch of french decorating...nice things

Nice booth...lovely things

Love these succulents in  the cans on a silver tray

Lots of chippy stuff.

Yes, even Santa was there

Lots of crystal

Door Knobs
Just something for everyone.  If you are in the area, it is a great way to spend the day.  Thanks to the vendors that agreed to have their booth photographed for my blog.  I hope you all stopped by!


  1. Looks like the place to be . . . the first booth looks fun! Are you home and cooling off?

  2. When I stepped into the showroom, I felt like I was in Provence.

    The scent of lavender and the sound of running water from the antique limestone fountain along with the incredible selection of French garden antiques were really impressive. If you are looking for very large garden ornaments, French planters, etc. this is the showroom to visit. A total of 15,000 square feet of the most incredible French garden antiques, French limestone fountains, fireplace mantels and the most selective collection of planters from France with immediate availability. Each piece feels real, the atmosphere is so calming and rural. A true and unique gem to be found in West Palm Authentic Provence will awaken all your senses with its most complete and genuine collection of the most distinctive French garden antiques and home décor the Mediterranean has to offer, carefully chosen by its owner an appassionato European art historian.

    Authentic Provence reflects an intimate portrait of (the south of) France where the outdoor living is saturated with the most refined yet simple garden antiques (savoir faire). Visit for more information.
