ANN ARBOR – If you have ever searched for the perfect accent item, or that piece of furniture that is simply missing from your living room, look no further. The Ann Arbor Antiques Market will have thousands of items from a variety of vendors, each of them dedicated collectors and dealers in their particular specialty.
The Ann Arbor Antiques Market was started in 1968 by Ann Arbor resident and antique enthusiast, Margaret Brusher. The first few years were modest affairs, held at the Ann Arbor Farmers’ Market. After the explosion of interest in Americana antiques with the 1976 bi-centennial, the Ann Arbor Antiques Market expanded rapidly, and soon became one of the nation’s most well-known antique shows. Now in its 42nd year, the Market hosts two-day shows once a month from April to October. The shows are at the Washtenaw Farm Council Grounds, spread out over several buildings and outside under cover.
“We pride ourselves on being a Michigan-based business, and in the extremely high quality of our antiques and collectibles,” said exhibitor Lynn Worden. She explained that exhibitors come from all over the U.S., Canada and sometimes the United Kingdom.
The next show will be Aug. 14 & 15 at the Washtenaw Farm Council Grounds, 5055 Ann Arbor Saline Rd. Hours are Sat. 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Sun. 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information go to www.annarborantiquesmarket.com.
