Antique Shopping in Indiana


I have already been hitting the antique shops around Shelbyville and Indianapolis. I have been wanting an old photo album forever- I have a project in mind- but the ones I see are normally so expensive. I found this purple velvet one in an antique mall in Indy. It also came with 3 tin types in it. I found some more tin types in Franklin the other day too. Being in between jobs, I probably shouldn't be buying these things.....but you know how it goes! And, who can pass up a $15 album.
 
Here are some of the finds!
 
 
 

 
We're getting settled into our new town. We are still waiting on our moving truck though. It should be here Saturday or Sunday. Until then, I'll enjoy checking out local shops and sights. Tomorrow, we may drive to some touristy towns, Nashville, Indiana and Columbus, Indiana. Everyone says they're really quaint and the fall colors are so nice right now.

That album is a great find, of course you had to snap it up :)

I hope you settle into your new home quickly.

Hi, Katie. Looks like you've had a lot of excitement with your art quilts showing and moving to Indiana. Beautiful album you found and tintypes are just so interesting--the way people used to look. Happy stitching in Indiana!
best, nadia

Welcome to Indiana, Katie. Hope to see you soon at a Journal Junkies meeting. I see you've already found some neat antique malls, and gone to Nashville in Brown County, where the fall color is always amazing. I hope you find Indiana a happy place to be!
