Ann Arbor Antiques Market - May 2011

Commonly mistaken preconceptions.

Tom Brown - Indiana

"Let's look around.  Maybe we can find one for less."

Charles Gerhardt - Ohio

"I'm sure they would break up the set"

Thatcher Goetz - Michigan

"Let's think about it.  If someone else buys it well, it just wasn't meant to be".

James Klein - Michigan

"No need to buy, I could make you one of those".

Ridgefield Gallery

" 48" X 72"? Would you have one 47" x 73"? Could it be cut down?"

Rust.2 - Michigan

"My grandparents had a wagon just like this, except it was metal not wood and the wheels were much smaller.  Grandmother painted it pink when aunt Mary was small, but now it is rusty because we've let it sit outside for the last 20 years". Adds, " But if it's worth this much I guess we better bring it in or maybe you'd like to buy it?"

No misconceptions here some smart shopper nabbed this quilt first thing.

Butter Beans Antiques - Michigan

"Postcards, do you have any postcards?"

Marta & Don Orwig - Indiana

"Could this table be used outside?"

Mongenas Antiques - Ohio

"What are those?"

Sanussi Janneh - Ohio

Drive by splat fails to break glass.

Worden Select Objects - Michigan

Comments! Where are the comments? We need feedback here at Antique Show Wanderer so please leave a comment every now and then. It could be a meaningless comment, an insanely absurd comment,  even one of praise or positive/negative criticism.  Thanks ASW


  1. Just wanted you to know that we really enjoy your blog ......enjoy seeing pictures from shows that we are unable to attend......most of all, love seeing the antiques!

  2. Here's a comment: I love this blog because this really helps the collectors out there that can't make it to the shows, especially us West Coasters. Keep up the great work!
