My Michigan readers may be interested in knowing that there’s a golf show this weekend at the Taylor Gibraltar Trade Center.
For those out of the area, the Gibraltar Trade Center is a vast warehouse building that houses an indoor weekend “public market.” That’s like a flea market, but without the garage sale implications. Inside the building are dozens and dozens of small booths (and a few large ones) run by entrepreneurs on the weekends. There’s a reptile pet supply store, for example, and a cell phone accessories store, tattoo parlors, a doll shop, crafts, leather goods, knives, tools, and so on. Each has a specialty.
The Trade Center also hosts trade shows in its twin 50,000 square foot show areas. Over the course of the year, they’ll hold computer shows, golf shows, knife shows, gun shows and so on. The golf shows usually are composed of a dozen or so vendors, mostly carrying closeouts and second- and third-tier manufacturer products. Occasionally, you’ll find a bargain, however.
