There’s a room in the back of Red Barn Consignments & Antiques which houses neither consignments or antiques. Sandi’s Cupboard offers customers primarily made in Michigan food products which delight taste buds. A punch card is available for this room giving customers a free item after the purchase of 10.
In the Beginning
When Red Barn Consignments & Antiques opened four years ago, they offered Cherry Republic products in their store. The Country Home Creation line was then added. Soon Marty and Laurie Chambers, owners of the business, decided to create a food room. They named it Sandi’s Cupboard after Marty’s late mother as a tribute to her. “[She] loved to cook with love and share her wonderful recipes with family and friends.” says Laurie. Many who are familiar with the store do not realize this special room in the back exists. But once people see the room’s unique gourmet food offerings, it’s not a surprise many of them become regulars to the cupboard.
Shop the Cupboard
Fase Apiaries honey and Pure Maple Syrup sold in Sandi’s Cupboard are from the Lowell community. Other brands, including Cherry Republic, Schuil Coffee, Aldente Pasta, and County Home Creations produce products made in Michigan. There are usually food and drink sample available for those eager for a taste test.
Some items found in this area of the store are seasonal. The Chambers enjoy researching and discovering new Michigan companies to add to the cupboard, which has grown since its inception four years ago and is anticipated to continue to expand.
Customer favorites are hard to nail down. But the Chambers say people continue to come in for Cherry Republic, Schuil Coffee, and Pure Maple Syrup is also a hit. If you stop in and would like to sample something which is not out, ask if a sample is available. There’s a good chance something can be found.
