Antiquing In Indy

This past weekend, we were in Indianapolis.  I had so much fun yard sale-ing with my friend Jen from 4tunate {more to come on that next week}. I also met up with my friend Sarah from Thrifty Decor Chick and her sweet Bub. We ate lunch at a fabulous pizza place called Bazbaux!  Yum!

Then we hit up the incredible Midland Art and Antiques market. Can I just say that I could have spent HOURS in there?  There was so much eye candy and you just can’t take it all in quickly. Another word that might describe Midland is heaven. I literally wanted to jump up and down with excitement and joy, but Sarah probably would’ve thought I was a total psycho. Ha!

Come along and I’ll show you some of my favorite things at Midland and then what I came away with! Woot!

This piece caught my eye because of the gorgeous paint, character and, well, it’s enormousness.  Is that a word?

A swoony chair.

This sign made me think of my girl, Layla.

A to-die-for cloche with beautiful aqua bottles.  {Yes, I have an aqua glass addiction.}

Um, hello, chair that looks like it came out of Star Wars. I think it’s cool in a very weird way.

Gorgeous milk glass.  I have a small footed bowl like the one with the yellow tag.

If I had space and a need for these right now {and if I had a trailer to pull behind the car}, I would have brought these lockers home with me!

Okay, so the brick wall caught my eye, but this picture is just cozy!

I think I need to find a dresser to paint yellow.

Y’all. I haven’t seen so many globes in all. my. life. They were everywhere.  If I get a hankering to decorate with globular objects, I guess I’ll be making a trip back to Indy!

Thank Sarah for hanging out with me! :)  It was a blast! Mwah!

{not a good picture of me, but Midland had no A/C = sweatfest}

I’ve been hunting for a vintage fan for months and I was so excited to find this one for $30!  It works too, so that’s an extra bonus! :)

I’m not sure what I’m going to do with this metal caddy with glasses, but they are adorbs and I couldn’t resist.

I could use them to organize, or hold flowers or serve drinks at a picnic.  An aqua blue pint-sized Ball jar also made it home with me {of course!} as well as some fabulous amber jars that I’ll show you closer to Fall.

Just typing “Fall” makes me all happy and giddy!

Do you ever go antiquing?

  1. I live near the “antique capital of the midwest” -Waynesville, OH! I love to spend a day there going up and down the main street full of antique shops!

    • @Becki, I live in Indiana just outside of Cincinnati. I’ve been to Waynesville, but just assumed that most of the shops were long gone. I am glad to hear that Waynesville is alive and well!! Sue

  2. Oh it looks like you had so much fun. I would love to go antiquing with you! I loved everything! Thanks for sharing.

  3. Wow, I live in Indy and didn’t even know about this place. I’ll have to check it out!

  4. I just saw a picture- maybe on pinterest?- of a back to school party and all the red crayons were in a red bucket, blue in a blue, etc.- your jars reminded me of that. Fun finds and better yet to have friends along!

    I live in Indiana and have never been there, actually didn’t know it existed. I see a road trip in my future :0) Thank you for sharing, your fan and glasses are sweet!


  6. Oh what I wouldn’t have done to join you two! I loved every. single. picture you took! That first buffet/dresser is my future husband. :) I loved it! Great post!

  7. I’m an Indy gal too, and I loooveee Midland. No matter how many times I go there I still get all giddy pulling into that gravel parking lot!

  8. I love these pix! The fan you got is fabulous and I love that huge table in the first pic. (I think that blue Star Wars chair is odd, but the shape of the back would be a cool earring…)

  9. What a fun place – I’m going to have to do a hunt to find something like that nearby! I think going antiquing with the two of you would be delightful! =) And your little caddy is adorable!

  10. Antiques markets are the best, there’s always something you (me) want to buy! My favorites are vintage school ware – like the globe etc.

  14. I’m sooo jealous! I would have had to take camping supplies because I could wander around a place like that for days. :) I would have strapped the lockers to the top of my car.
