SHELBY TOWNSHIP, Mich. — The Utica Antiques Market opened their 2013 season with a huge success. Even though the winds blew and sleet flew, there was a record crowd at the gate. “You have to love the Michigan weather!” said show promoters, Dale and Karen Niedzwiecki. “Our expert team of workers made sure everything was safe and secure the entire weekend.”
This was the largest participation of vendors the show had since Dale and Karen took over the in 2007. Located in the heart of the auto industry, it’s clear that most people have extra money to spend on their passion for fine antiques.
The show is held at what was formerly known as the “Vanker Farm” with remnants of the old farm still visible. During the 60’s, St. Lawrence Knights of Columbus purchased the farm and transformed it into a beautiful park with shade trees and a pavilion for people to enjoy. With 25 acres of green lawn, it’s an awesome location to put your walking shoes on and enjoy the day shopping for that special treasure.
The consensus was very positive from the vendors as they discuss their sales at the complimentary vendor appreciation dinner provided by the Niedzwiecki’s each Saturday evening of the show. “We truly strive to treat our vendors and customers with respect. A happy vendor is a happy customer is a happy promoter!” said Dale.
You can look forward to the July show, of course without the sleet. Be sure to mark your calendar for July 13 and 14. For more information go to www.uticaantiques.com or call 586-254-3495.
