Antiques market celebrates 16 years

Lakewood 400 Antiques Market, which attracts thousands of shoppers each month from across the Southeast, is celebrating its 16th anniversary this month. 
The market is a go-to destination on the third weekend of each month where shoppers visit the hundreds of dealers on site.
“It’s hard to believe that it has been 16 years since we opened the first show here in Forsyth County,” says show manager Diane Dominick. 
Lakewood has its roots back to the old Lakewood Antiques Market held at the Lakewood Fairgrounds in Atlanta. The market moved to its current Cumming location in 2003 after the Lakewood property in Atlanta was purchased by Screen Gem Studios.
The operation has continued to grow over the years and has been named as one of the “Top Ten markets in America” by USA Today.
“This market is no longer your grandparents’ antique market. Times are changing,” say show promoter, Greg Spivia.  
The market features over 75,000 square feet of indoor, climate controlled exhibit halls, along with the outdoor veranda and always eclectic courtyard. Dealers and artisans travel from all over the country to bring their best picks, finds and creations to the market. 
Show promoter Rhett Spivia says, “If you have never been to our market do yourself a favor and come spend a day with us. The exhibit halls are filled with unique items, home decor, jewelry, vintage and retro items, and all types of really cool furniture. There is something for everyone.”
 Show promoter Barbara Spivia says, “This has been a family run business for almost 40 years and we plan on it being a family business for many years to come.”
The market is located on Highway 9 just south of Cumming.
