Welcome to Pinky's Place

Bert "Pinky"Anderson
Just north of the Filling Station Restaurant on Alpine Ave there used to be a remote toy shop called Twisted RC.  As you drive north, you will notice a road sign that announces new ownership and that the building is now  Pinky’s Place and will open to the public beginning this Friday, November 1, 2013. A grand opening is planned for November 15th, 2013.

Pinky’s Place is a unique Antique & Artisan Market located at 4790 Alpine Avenue NW in Comstock Park, and co-owned by longtime friends and marketing partners Deb Myszka and Julie Bresko.  Together they have coordinated various vendor markets, annual 26-week Summer in the City events, festivals and a variety of activities for downtown Grand Rapids bringing over one-million visitors annually to their events.  They are excited to now direct their creative talents and experience to Pinky’s Place, a premier West Michigan destination for vendors, patrons, and the Community. 
Pinky’s Place will feature local artists and vendors displaying and selling their quality refurbished, recycled and distressed furniture & home decor, handmade crafts, art of all types, antiques, locally made farm products and a variety of other unique items. The marketplace will also hold activities including:  Create-N-Take Classes, Kids Amazing Art Day, Sunday-Sundaes, as well as various events and activities throughout the year. Pinky’s Place will be open 6 days per week, Tuesday – Sunday, 362 days a year.
Pinky’s Palace (a non-profit organization named after local resident, Bert “Pinky” Anderson who suffers from 1 of 80 types of Dementia) will provide resources, awareness, community support, fundraisers, events and much more for those impacted by Dementia. Fundraising opportunities (supported 100% through charitable gifts) will help assist families in need of respite care relief, transportation, medications, supplies and other related expenses associated with those suffering this disease.
