ST. JOSEPH, Mich. — The premier place to find antiques and collectibles in Southwest Michigan continues to be on the first Sunday of the month, May through October, in St. Joseph. The popular Antiques on the Bluff returns May 3 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., when vendors will sell their treasures in the tree-lined Lake Bluff Park overlooking Lake Michigan.

“We are taking vendor registrations now,” said Jill Stone, executive director of St. Joseph Today. “There are booth spaces for dozens of dealers and this is an especially good year to participate since two of the six Sundays fall on major holiday weekends when we draw larger crowds to town.”

Show dates are May 3, June 7, July 5, Aug. 2, Sept. 6 and Oct. 4.

Stone said merchandise is limited to antiques and collectibles. Reproductions, modern crafts or new merchandise are not allowed. She asked that interested vendors contact Daniele at (269) 985-1111 or

Dealers may be asked to provide a photograph of representative merchandise before a booth area is assigned. They also will need a Michigan Sales Tax ID to participate. Information about obtaining a tax ID is available at

Stone said Antiques on the Bluff is one of several reasons to visit St. Joseph on Sundays. After viewing the booths, visitors can walk to nearby downtown shops, restaurants, family attractions, beaches and parks along the riverfront.

“Starting on June 28, our municipal band also performs free concerts on Sunday afternoons and evenings,” she said.
