We are proud to be celebrating our 45th year in business as Dealers in Fine Antiques and Art. Established in 1973 in Shreveport, LA as ET. CETERA, LTD., we operated a Shop offering Decorative Antiques, Fine Art, Estate Jewelry, Silver, Linens, English, French, German and Oriental Furniture, with special emphasis on Chinese Antiques, Japanese Antiques and Works of Art.
The following year we opened a second Shop, ROBERTA STEPHENS ANTIQUES, featuring Folk Art, Americana, and Louisiana Primitives.
We continued to expand and focus more intently on Japanese Antiques and Chinese Antiques. In the late 1970's we began exhibiting at Antique Shows and changed the name to MICHI TRADING COMPANY. Michi can be translated to mean 'the way' or 'path'.
In 1984, we relocated to Houston, TX. We NO LONGER HAVE A SHOP, but established an Internet presence in 1998 with our Michi Trading Company Website and began trading on Ebay as well.
