GRAND RAPIDS, Mich (WOOD) - Pairing modern elements in your home with older items and things made by hand look great, and it's always fun to be on the look out for great places to search for treasures. EightWest found a new spot that is full of antiques, artisan pieces and a whole lot more, so we asked Deb Myszka of Pinky's Place to bring a sample into our studio. Pinky's Place is a unique venue for vendors to display and sell their quality refurbished furniture and treasures.
Deb's mother (nicknamed Pinky) is living with dementia. Deb thought, "I can't cure this disease or make it go away, but I can make a difference by bringing awareness, communication, education, fellowship, and various avenues of support to other families in our community who have, or will, travel down my road". Pinky's Place is the venue Deb is opening on November 1 to carry out her mission and be the hub for Pinky's Palace, a 501c3 organization created to help families in the community affected by dementia.
