the perfect man
We found this old gem a few months ago...he is now in the hands of an extremely talented jewelry maker :)
my kind of fishing
this sweet old thing was in pieces in a moldy attic when we first met him. With several hours of care and repairs, he was added to the market and fondly named Sherman the Sturgeon. He has sold but still hangs in the market until his new owner is ready for him
6000+ square feet of vintage, primitives, architectural, home decor, Chalk Paint by Annie Sloan and more! We re-stage the market every month so it looks different every time! No entry fee....one mile north of downtown Three Oaks. Open year round!
