HUGE! Place. Made the trip to Bay City just to go here and it was worth it. This place is huge with 3 floors. Can spend hours here!

Be sure to ask at the front desk about a parking pass. I had inquired about if we needed to go out and move our truck after 2 hrs as all parking signs said 2 hr parking only...and the front desk offered me a parking pass to put in our vehicle that was for unlimited parking that day. Awesome!

We spent several hours here looking at all the great stuff. Then had a late lunch and walked to some other stores and shops in the area. Very nice day away!

This place is huge! If you like antiques plan on spending a lot of time here. They had a wide variety of items. We were on a schedule and had to rush through it. We’ll definitely go back and take our time.

This place is HUGE!! We spent over 4 hours browsing the 3 floors of Antiques & if you have trouble walking, this is not the place to go. We enjoyed it, but not a 2nd time

Maybe it was just due to the hype but I expected more. It’s a nice antique store, but not unique as antique stores go. Perhaps I just travel a lot and an spoiled? I’d go see it and did. But I wasn’t overly impressed. A nice antique store.

The Bay City Antiques Market act almost like a museum in some ways and yet the items are available for sale. Really cool stuff and very friendly, helpful and welcoming vendors here. I really enjoyed my visit.

This is a large complex (attached to another large complex), that provides a wide variety of items from which to choose/browse.
On the 2nd floor, many of the old-school retail display cases are interesting in of themselves to view.
Though many of the prices seemed skewed to the higher side; as with any mall this size, there is a wide range of quality and price-range. Some goods may be priced high; but there are also "good deals". After all, that's what makes the "hunt" so addicting.
The owner was friendly and helpful; and provided interesting info about the mall and her history with it.
A solid option, if one enjoys the "hunt".

Fun place but overpriced. You could get lost in here. There’s tons of stuff but no real organization to it that makes any sense so you’re stuck just wandering around

Kind of a poorly organized collection of old stuff. If you are really into " antiques", then you would probably be okay rummaging around in here. There seemed to be more old glassware and knickknacks than actual antique furniture.

Really wonderful owner! She made our visit by telling us the history of the building and tales of it being haunted. Cool store...fun stop. Loved it.

This huge establishment has a nice eclectic mix of antiques and vintage stuff. Enough vendors to provide a wide assortment to please almost anyone.

Worth the hours of browsing.
