Grand Rapids Antiques Market

If you’re in the Grand Rapids area, you won’t want to miss the Grand Rapids Antiques Market this weekend.

Antiques Roadshow appraiser (and Atlantique City alum) Caroline Ashleigh is slated to appear and speak on Saturday about using antiques as investment opportunities (that is, of course, for those of us who need a reason other than “love” to rationalize buying antiques).

Ashleigh is but one of many speakers scheduled to appear at the market, in addition to the offerings of 130 booths with 200 dealers.
