Friends, the time has come for Suburban Antiquarian to move again. With many storefronts in Williamston vacant and the retail environment here becoming increasingly less profitable each year. We at Suburban Antiquarian have had to make some difficult decisions; we have decided to reformat our existing business model. What this means is that by September 30th our retail store in Williamston will be closed.
Suburban Antiquarian will be in booth #M9 at The Mega Mall, antiques mall in Lansing located at 15487 S. US Highway 27. With this move we will have increased hours (Mon-Sun 11-6) and access to a larger customer base. We will also be increasing our online presence. You will find some of our better antiques and collectable in our Etsy shop SuburbanAntiquarian. Some of our better music titles are available on Discogs. Over the next few months our selections on both Etsy and Discogs will be growing, so check back often!
Also, in the near future, we will be revamping our website and enhancing our existing presence with our current social media outlets: Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.
This move will also allow us to have more time to be out there hunting for those great finds. So keep looking for our “Pick of the Week”. We also look forward to being able to spend more time with our friends and family.
It has been fun talking with customers and sharing stories over the years. We will miss that and who knows; maybe in a few years we will be back and better than ever.
We have a great new “Pick of the Week” for board game collectors. It’s a 1936 copy of the Transogram game “Big Business”. This game was released in 1936 so this is one of the early copies. It is complete; all pieces and instructions are accounted for. Toy collectors know how hard it can be to find early games in their entirety. It can take years of searching to find a missing piece.
This week I have something special that has been in the shop for a while and has been overlooked; as far as the Pick of the Week goes. It is a 1965 First Mono pressing of the Beatles Help album. There are many different pressings of all of the Beatles albums; collectors always favor the first pressings. Mono pressings of 1960’s records are usually desirable, depending on the production quality and re-channeling of the original recordings.
