Their pricing of the granite ware has always been reasonable and is now 50% off…..real encouragement to make that purchase!


Sally & Jerry Cole opened their store in Ludington in May 1987. Some of the original dealers are occupying booths at their new location of 120 N. Main St. in Scottville. Now conducting business where their good friend Neil Frick did business for 27 years, is so special and enjoyable.
