The show attracts up to 1,000 attendees over the 2 days and is supported by 150 church volunteers.  With so many dealers and a large array of unusual antiques, decorative items, and one-of-a-kind collectibles, the show is one of the longest-running and most sought-after boutique antique shows in the metro Detroit area. Exhibitors from all over the Midwest will feature a large selection of merchandise, including decorative accessories and collectibles, furniture, lighting, architectural ceramics, pottery, glass, silver, rugs, linens, books, fine art, sculptures, toys, china, silver, glassware, jewelry, and much more.

The show also features on-site appraisals by Ms. Joan Walker of the world-renowned DuMouchelles Gallery of Detroit on Saturday, October 10th, from 10AM. to 1PM   Cost for the verbal appraisals is $10 per item with a limit of three items.

A Country Cafe is open both Friday and Saturday. The church volunteers take pride in putting together an old fashioned Country Café featuring traditional favorites like egg salad sandwiches and homemade vegetable soup, plus a Country Store filled with baked goods, jellies, and crafts.
