The Red Rooster Antique Mall, includes 19 dealers and showcases a variety of unique wares including beautiful handcrafted items, collectibles of all kinds, furniture for the Victorian home, beach cottage or back woods home, and patio and garden furnishings.
Pat and Cece Egging, who own and manage the Red Rooster Antique Mall, say that it evolved from a quest to replace a missing piece from an heirloom tea set. Pat explains: “We had a piece of Depression glass that was passed down from my mother. The creamer to the tea set was missing, and we just started looking.” He adds with a smile, “We now have completed the set.”
Their original search soon developed into a passion for collecting that translated into a small antiques shop in 2003 called Upsy Daisy. Soon, the Eggings had established two large antique malls in downtown Freeland. In March of 2010, they sold one of these stores and are currently operating the Red Rooster Antique Mall at 1635 Main Street in Freeland. Visitors to the store are surprised by how large it is and the amazing variety of items offered for sale.
Pat says they pride themselves on having a wide selection of rare glass, tableware, vintage toys, old books, antique linens, clothing, shoes, jewelry and purses, as well as furniture and other items that lure professional and amateur collectors.
Recently, the Egging’s added a line of new lampshades to their inventory, and Pat offers lamp repair services. Also added to their merchandise are lovely silk flower arrangements, in-house custom sign painter, potpourri, mulling spices and more. In addition, Anita M. Smith is offers traditional quilting classes (contact the Red Rooster for a current list of dates and times).
The Eggings believe that just one visit to the Red Rooster Antique Mall will awaken the collector’s passion in just about anyone.
The Red Rooster Antique Mall is open 7 days a week, Monday through Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Sunday from 12:00 noon to 5:00 p.m.
