This will be our first 2022 sale! We’ve been working hard to clear out old inventory and bring new fun treasures to shop. Our warehouse is a space that we store and restore our treasures but we also have a drop off recycling program held here as well. So it gets cluttered, please understand it won’t be perfect as we still have recycling dropped off almost daily now. 

We also want this event to serve as a way to get to know Junk in the Trunk. Junk in the Trunk is an eco friendly estate liquidation/clean out business. What the heck is that anyway? 

Give us a chance to explain what we do, and why we do it. We would love to share our recycling goals, and our current impact. 

You can also drop off your recycling at this event for free. Our free clothing closet will be open to shop for free clothing. 

Use this event to share your business, and networking. How could Junk in the Trunk help you and your business? Are you a realtor that occasionally or frequently have homeowners with a bunch of junk they aren’t sure how to get rid of? We can help! 

Own a business and want to make it greener? We can help with that too! 

Just want to shop and don’t give a crap what we do?!? No judgement here! 

Are you with a nonprofit, looking to partner or looking for donations? This is your event! 

No matter your reason for stopping out, it’s guaranteed to be a good time. 

We will have everything from furniture to antiques, oddities, collectibles, pottery, tools, jewelry, vintage clothing, and so much more. 

Located inside the Eagle Ledges Industrial Park. The specific address is 10248-C West Grand River Hwy. Grand Ledge 
Open from 10am-3pm.

The Grand Ledge Opera House is excited to present Michigan-based ragtime artist, Peter Bergin in concert on April 3rd at 4:00PM.  This “Ragtime Spectacular” concert not only brings culture and education to our community, it serves as a fundraiser for the Opera House.  Peter has enjoyed entertaining audiences for over two decades. His mission is to celebrate life through music and stories, and especially loves sharing the rhythms and history of ragtime piano. Classically trained, Peter embarked on a full-time music career after twenty-four years in computer software. There isn't a day he regrets this decision! Peter's latest CD, Beyond the Maple Leaf, was released in 2019 featuring the music of Scott Joplin and the vintage pianos of the Music House Museum. His debut CD, Ragtime in Time, features the Big Three of classic ragtime, Scott Joplin, James Scott, and Joseph Lamb. Peter's crossover project, The American Parlor, explores the intersection of ragtime and American classical, featuring the music of Louis Moreau Gottschalk, George Gershwin, Scott Joplin, Eubie Blake, among others. Peter is widely sought-after for school assemblies, libraries, museums, and community concert venues.

"Peter's performance was a rousing success at the Music House Museum and Church in the Hills. Not only was the music superb, but he engaged the audience and put smiles on all our faces. I highly recommend him as a pianist to any audience of any age."

- Dorothy Clore
     Board president, Music House Museum, Acme, MI
     Organist, Church in the Hills, Bellaire, MI

This concert is sponsored by the Michigan Humanities Council and the Harlan and Betty MacDowell Concert Foundation.
