Friday afternoon, shortly after school let out, a crowd gathered outside of 138 Main Street to watch the ribbon cutting ceremony and official opening of River Raisin Antiques and Mercantile. Sue LaRocque, an elementary teacher who will be retiring at the end of this school year to pursue her love of selling antiques, and Ray Berg of the Manchester Chamber of Commerce cut the ribbon. New customers poured inside.

Their spring hours are Wednesday through Friday, 4-8pm, Saturday 10-6pm and Sunday, noon-4pm. It will be closed on Monday and Tuesday. Questions? Call  (734) 649-2993 or email with questions. Visit their website at

River Raisin Antiques and Mercantile’s grand opening was also what would have been LaRocque’s grandmother -Glenna Kaiser’s 100th birthday. Her photo hangs behind the counter in the shop.
