“An event that brings antique dealers, visitors and vendors from around the country to Midland every year was recently honored by the state.
Lori Oberlin, the owner of the Michigan Antique Festival, received a letter of recognition signed by Rep. Gary Glenn, Sen. Jim Stamas and Gov. Rick Snyder. The letter was presented to Oberlin by Glenn.
‘This was quite an honor for us,’ Oberlin told the Daily News. Oberlin, who lives in Orchard Lake, has run the festival since purchasing it in 2006. She said it is nice to see the hard work continue to pay off for all the people that make the statewide show happen every year.
‘We were surprised,’ she said, laughing. ‘It was very, very nice.’”
