Cole's Antiques Villa Becomes Cole's Antiques Services

After starting and running Cole’s Antiques Villa in downtown Ludington, MI for 28 years, Jerry & Sally Cole moved the business to Scottville in 2014. Their new location was in a property the Cole’s purchased from the family of a good friend, Neil Frick. Neil (Frick’s Old Country Store), had owned 120 N. Main St. for 27 years. 

The approximately 135 year-old building was a former G.A.R. (Grand Army of the Republic) building which was later sold to The Odd Fellows of Michigan. The Odd Fellows used the hall upstairs for their meetings and rented the main level to a myriad of businesses over many years.

Time for a Change…

Jerry and Sally had a wonderful 8 years breathing in new life into their Scottville property. The building got needed renovations and upgrades, not changing the antique nature, and totally refurbished the grounds to become an oasis of trees, bushes, and plants for a personal privacy garden. The inclusion of Cole’s Shed, which held a “pickers paradise”, completed the vision. Cole’s Antiques Villa was awarded the 2019 Ludington Daily News Reader’s Choice Gold Award for Antiques & Collectibles.

The time has come for Jerry and Sally to semi-retire because their property has been sold. But Jerry & Sally’s involvement in the antique business isn’t over yet. They are currently undergoing a transition to their new adventure, Cole’s Antiques Services. Through this business, the Cole’s hope to begin offering antiques consultations and appraisals beginning in the spring of 2022.
