This past Friday, my friend, Alan, + I took a day trip
to Harbor Country in SW Michigan.
A gorgeous, sandy beach — right here in the Midwest?!
It’s only a couple hours drive from Chicago!
Alan vacations there frequently.
Who wouldn’t want to spend the day at that beach?
But wait. There’s more.
Harbor Country has the coolest antiques stores . . .
. . . the coolest of which is
13565 Red Arrow Highway
Marco Polo is in a stunning, rustic/modern building
with board + batten siding + a corrugated metal roof.
Of course, you’ll find yourself longing to live there! I know I did.
Inside there is a carefully curated selection of mind-blowing antiques.
The stunning, immaculate property also includes a barn,
which, on the day we visited, was filled with discounted pieces.
I brought home a pair of lamps made from old car jacks.
(Disclaimer: please disregard the errant lampshade in this photo!)
I errantly assumed that my new Frenchie-stripe lampshades
would play nicely with my new lamps.
Sadly, they’re too top heavy for those narrow jacks.

While I ponder my lampshade shopping options,
check out these fantastic antiques
(from Marco Polo’s website.)
This truck has been sold, as have all the other items I’m sharing.
I don’t have current photos
because I seem to have forgotten my camera that day.
If you find yourself loving anything here, trust me. You’d love the store!
These photos are just the tip of the iceberg, if you will.
Their website has dozens + dozens more photos
of amazing antiques.
