Parma Antique Mall: New Ownership & New Look!!

While y'all were bingeing on Tiger King and obsessively watching the "Covid curve"...  Doug Moe and Pierce Modlin, cousins in crime, were hard at work renovating their new purchase - the PARMA ANTIQUE MALL!

A couple shots of what was going down between April and June:

They worked long hours and many energy drinks were consumed to open on June 12th!

June 12, 2020 - the "new" Parma Antique Mall is open for business!

Folks, you will not believe you are in little Parma, Michigan the moment you step through that welcoming door.  So much eye candy greets you, you're not sure what to look at first.

The store counter was once located in a museum in France. The gentleman they acquired it from had once bought a whole container of antiques from France and had them shipped to America.  In a few photos, you'll notice the large stain glass in the archway - also in the load from France.

For the last couple of years, Doug Peterson has been a friendly face greeting shoppers and many have asked if he is still working. Good news for those of you who come in to talk local sports, Doug Peterson is still here to give you all the latest! It just wouldn't be the same without him!

Coffee is always on in Parma!

The entry way is large and open, drop ceiling is gone, and there is an antique fridge keeping your drinks cold.  Feel free to purchase one and have a seat at the table with the good ole' boys.

While this stairway was new only a year or so ago, the treads got a new look and the wow-factor is.... well "wowwing"!  Head upstairs for Moe's Mercantile and much more!

The space under the stairs made the perfect nook for vintage post cards!

Doug Moe is more than a friendly face at the mall.  He's the rockstar (along with Pierce Modlin)
behind this beautiful updated Antique Mall. You will not be sorry you stopped.  And while you're there, make sure to check out the antiques at "The Vault Antiques and Collectibles" across the street and get a delicious cherry chicken salad (my recommendation) at GG's Cafe just two store fronts down.

Check them out on Facebook HERE for new items coming in and other
 ventures these boys are a part of! With over 60 dealers, there is something for everyone!

Don't forget to also "like" GG's cafe on Facebook:

When the ceiling came down upstairs last year when Darin was renovating so he could open up vendor spots, I hauled a lot of the old lathe boards out.  Here are a few projects made with lathe (lath) boards.  Just click on photo to take you to the project:

  1. I dropped in to check out the new face and owners, still a fun place to investigate. Lots of stuff I almost always find a item or to I can't live without.

  2. We just moved to Marshall and I’m on the hunt for an old sideboard. Will need to stop in and check this place out now that we are closer!
