Antiquing in Grand Rapids is Pure Michigan

There is something fun about Antiquing and staying at a romantic bed and breakfast, they go together. Perhaps it’s the thrill of the unknown? I think it's part of our “Pure Michigan” experience because both are an adventure. Once I went looking for a creamer and came home with a cool vintage coat with a fur collar.

At “Prairieside Suites Luxury Bed and Breakfast” a Grand Rapids lodging, we have lots of guests who enjoy antiquing in Grandville and Grand Rapids. They love BOTH our whirlpool & fireplace suites and sharing their antique “FINDS” around the breakfast table in the morning. The conversation may start out with how they loved their luxury B&B suite, how well they slept in our king size bed, how wonderful our deep two person jacuzzi tubs are and then they talk about where they went the day before, what they did and how they enjoyed our city of Grandville and greater Grand Rapids area, rich with so many activities.

I know some folks know exactly what they’re hunting for when antiquing. But for many it’s about finding an unexpected treasure and coming home with something you never knew you wanted but are NOW tickled to own. It’s about memories, pretty things and sometimes you're inspired to go home and dig out things you already own. Somehow when you blow the dust off and look closely, that little gem talks to you and nurtures your soul! Crazy I know, but many antique-rs have been mystified… and many husbands have muttered those famous words, “Where are you gonna put that”?

I can’t help but reminisce while I am Antiquing. You know…these are the glasses we drank out of when we were kids. Grandma had these and we sold them at a garage sale for a quarter and now they’re here for $10 a piece [don't tell mom]! We’ve all been there, you know what I mean.

Those of you who have seen my china cabinet know that I have been collecting cut crystal for years. Paul’s mother started me with a collection of Amber stone dishes that I have added to over the years. My adopted mom, Julie, has a collection of Candlewick and Orchid Glass. So I have had some fun hunting for "STUFF" that "WE" collect and while I’m shopping I can’t help but look at the vintage jewelry. I especially like unique old rings. Many of them are “one of a kind handmade gems” and I have a few that I wear often!
