Announcement   Antiques, Primitives, Vintage Collectibles, Advertising & Movie Props from all around Michigan.

Hi, come on in. Feel free to look around. You may just find that special something you remember from your childhood. Watch out where you walk though. Our 7th rescued animal "Red", (our avatar) a male Boxer/Mastiff mix dog, is lazy and tends to sleep in the middle of the floor. He doesn't mind if you scratch him behind his ears.

Warm fuzzies and dog licks are always free.

I would love to have my own antique store. However, I'm not old enough to retire just yet. So my other passion, traveling anywhere in northern Michigan, happens in bits and pieces. But during my back and forth travels, I stop at every opportunity in search of the next bargain, undiscovered treasure, or diamond in the rough. My family threatens to get out and walk if I stop one more time. So for now, this is my store. Kind of a foster home for things once loved or cherished, waiting patiently for that next new love to discover them once again.

The circle of life, Vintage style!
Reuse, Recycle, Repurpose, Restore, Rescue an animal
Thanks for stopping by, be safe, see you again soon.

Here is the question I asked the buyer after receiving her feedback: Hello Rosie I'm kind of disappointed by your feedback. The listing description clearly stated that "all angels are between 1.75" - 2.0" tall. With that in mind, why would you think they were larger, and then rate me poorly for that. Thank you for your time, Rich

About

Recycling Michigans History - One item at a time

Since I can remember I have had a passion for vintage and antique things. I always wonder about the connection between the item, and its past. What story does it have to tell. Who bought it. Who was it given to. How did they feel about the item. Who was it handed down to. Why was it finally given up.

I feel we are a foster home for things once loved and cherished. Patiently waiting to be rediscovered and loved once again.

Just like all the furry kids we have rescued so far.....
Hans - a Dachshund
Tigger - a Cat
Skootur - a Dachshund
Max - a Lab / Shepard mix
Molly - a Shar-Pei / Husky mix
Lewiston Girl - a Large Breed mix
Red - a Boxer / Mastiff mix
Rocket - a Jack Russell Terrorist / Dachshund mix - OMG!
Ghetto - a Pit Bull / mix
