Vintage Promotions, LLC Announces Purchase of Grand Rapids Antiques Market

GRAND RAPIDS, MI–Vintage Promotions, LLC, the producers of the Dallas Vintage Clothing and Jewelry Show, Vintage Garage Chicago and other events today announced the purchase of 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 shows planning and production.

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

Cecily Near says the success of the event has been a crowning achievement, but reached the point where continuing growth required the additional resources Vintage Promotions, LLC can offer.

“At a time of contraction in the industry, this show has only become more successful,” Near says. “I really needed a partner who knew the ingredients required for success of a 21st Century production. I am certain Melissa Sands and Eric Miller fit the bill and that the show will continue to grow and thrive.”

First held in 2007, the 2014 Vintage Life Expo, will be held in conjunction with the Grand Rapids Old House Expo January 4-5, 2014 at DeVos Place in Grand Rapids.
