About Best Friends Antiques

Heading to the lake house, enjoying a "friends weekend," celebrating an anniversary or just taking a country drive, plan to stop at Best Friends Antiques.

You will find us in the small village of Blanchard, about twenty miles west of Mt. Pleasant, Michigan. Formally a thriving lumber town, Blanchard has morphed into a quaint little village known best for its unique shops and country atmosphere.  Hand made goods, local produce and antique shops along the way, make the weekend drive to Blanchard a must do.

All things fall

Our shop is housed in two buildings, barn and small guest house, that are over a hundred and twenty years old.  The shop hosts visitors who want to take a step back in time, catch their breath and appreciate nature's bounty for a few hours.  In addition to antiques, our guests enjoy exploring grounds that feature an old growth pine and beech forest along with a working fire pit.

Heartfelt Holiday

We specialize in salt glaze stoneware, much of which comes from our trips to Vermont and New Hampshire each summer.
