Rather than wait until the region is sufficiently thawed-out to hold an outdoor flea market, the Ann Arbor-Detroit area is home to a year-round, three-story emporium of beautiful vintage goods.
Tucked away in Kerrytown, the Treasure Mart is one of the best vintage stores in the state. There is truly something for everyone – antique connoisseurs, DIY addicts, and flea market scavengers. Not technically a flea market by design but thoroughly so in spirit, the Treasure Mart is a consignment shop with 8,500 square feet of delightfully curated and highly organized mid-century home furnishings, vintage clothing, costume jewelry, ceramics, dishware, and loads of small, inexpensive kitsch. Price range from 25 cent postcard to a $8,000 Biedermeier bedroom set.
Housed in a historic building that was once a mid-19th century planing mill, the Treasure Mart also has an outdoor area full of vintage patio furniture spanning a few decades. Definitely a must do if you’re near Ann Arbor, all the more so as there are roughly 2,000 new items put out each day.
Antiquing Tip Of The Day
Value of antiques can fluctuate just like stocks and bonds—just because these are antiques and they are old does not mean the value will constantly increase. The most important point is: buy what you love, because you gotta live with it.
