For those waiting for a hip, 1950s vintage antique store to arrive in
, your time has come.
The popular Lambs' Gate Antiques
of Grand Ledge has expanded with a new 1,200 square-foot storefront in
Old Town at 1219 Turner St., across from the Creole Gallery. It’s a bit
smaller than the Grand Ledge store but won’t lose any of its
uniqueness, according to the shop's manager,
“It’s going to be pretty funky,” says Lamb.
Lambs' Gate differs from most antique stores because the items are
“mixed together” and not set up in booths, and offers something for
everyone, she says. Though the store will tend toward the mid-century
vintage era, it does carry a full range of antiques.
Its sales are an even fifty-fifty among men and women, which Lamb says
her mother-in-law, Lambs' Gate owner, takes great pride in.
Lamb says the choice to move to Old Town was simple: It is an up-and-coming area and a part of town she already frequents.
“I love this part of Lansing,” she says.
Lambs' Gate had a soft opening on May 22 and normal business hours are
tentatively scheduled for Tuesday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
