Grand Rapids Antiques Market Sold

M.A.D. staff | June 16th, 2013

Vintage Promotions, LLC, the producers of the Dallas Vintage Clothing and Jewelry Show, Vintage Garage Chicago, and other events, has purchased Vintage Life Expo, also known as the Grand Rapids Antiques Market.

Cecily Near, who produces and manages the show, has agreed to continue her involvement in the show’s planning and production. “At a time of contraction in the industry, this show has only become more successful,” Near said. “I really needed a partner who knew the ingredients required for success of a twenty-first-century production. I am certain Melissa Sands and Eric Miller fit the bill, and that the show will continue to grow and thrive.”

Melissa Sands of Vintage Promotions, LLC said, “This event is an ideal complement to our existing lineup. It’s established, yet energetic with a broad customer base and solid track record.”

The show was first held in 2007. The 2014 Vintage Life Expo will be held in conjunction with the Grand Rapids Old House Expo on January 4 and 5, at DeVos Place in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
