Art Antiques Michigan
I have been an avid collector of country, primitive antiques for about 50 years. During those years I have collected, sold, collected, sold---you know how that goes. I was a single owner antique shop for many years. With the onset of the internet my selling venue has changed. I now have a website www.artantiquesmichigan.com. Some of you may know me from there. I hope to bring to my Dig site the same quality country, primitive antiques as I offer on my website, at reasonable prices. I will update my Dig site every month between the 15th. and 17th. of each month. You will find fresh to market items at that time. My preferred method of payment is by check. Made payable to Joanne Getz. I offer a lay a way plan to help you with your purchases. Michigan residents add 6% Sales Tax. I do hope you will stop by often. I can be reached nearly anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me 9894281009.
