Antiquing through Indy

Do you love integrating the old with the new? Are you constantly looking for that perfect vintage piece to complete a room?  Well, look no further!  Indianapolis is filled with impressive antique stores touting everything from exquisite tea sets to plush vintage settees.  Below we have listed a few of our favorites.

 

Upscale Junk & Antiques – Cicero Township

Directly off 31, Upscale Junk & Antiques features over 100 dealers and consigners within their 15,000-square foot building.  One fact that differentiates Upscale Junk & Antiques is that it has, “the largest selection of salvaged wood in Indiana.”  Customers can even contact Upscale’s design team to create a custom wood piece.

Salvage Sisters’ Antique Market – Franklin

Salvage Sisters’ Antique Market is filled with carefully selected items, perfectly positioned to grab customers’ attention.  All their items are featured in individual booths set up by outside dealers.  They even reuse math flash cards and old photos for signs and price tags! 

Southport Antique Mall – Indianapolis

Southport Antique Mall’s mission goes beyond just selling vintage items.  They believe that their store can serve as a cornerstone of their community.  During the summer, they host an outdoor vintage market every second Saturday.  Of course, you can also visit their store during their semi-annual sale in May or November!

Society of Salvage – Indianapolis

Since 2013, Society of Salvage has been rescuing what they call, “the utilitarian, the curious, and the aesthetic,” from commercial buildings and factories around Indianapolis.  Their warehouse is currently open Thursday through Saturday and is available other days by appointment.  I, for one, want to visit this find!

Salvage & Co. – Carmel

Much like Society of Salvage, Salvage & Co.’s warehouse is open unique hours. Unlike Society of Salvage, Salvage & Co. is solely about the furniture.  Their shop features everything from spotless new furniture to fixer-upper furniture.  Known for their great deals, customers can check out their items in their warehouse or on Wayfair.com.

Antique Mall of Irvington by Jack & Jill – Irvington

This three-level wonderland is filled with old wood and metal antiques.  Owners Jack and Jill created this business in 1997 to stimulate business growth in Irvington.  Situated in the same building as the Irvington Theater and the Lazy Daze Café, this business is a staple for antique shoppers in Irvington.

Queen Bee Vintage – Indianapolis

Known for their excellent prices and exceptional customer service, Queen Bee Vintage has been serving customers since 2013. Curious about Queen Bee’s wares?  They describe their items as, “wares to wear, look at, or sit on.”  This place is beloved by customers on Yelp, touting 4.5 stars.

Midland Arts & Antiques Market – Indianapolis, Carmel

As their website states, Midland Arts & Antiques Market features over, “200 independent art and antique dealers from around the Mid-West.” With locations in both Indianapolis and Carmel, they reach a wide audience.  Be sure to check out their website as many of their best items are photographed online.

Main Street Shoppes – Westfield

Main Street Shoppes is just one of those places that feels like it will never end.  Filled with unique and curious vintage items, customers can easily spend hours wandering the store’s many aisles. Also, there is a great barbecue place right next door if you need food after your quest!

Vintage 54 Collective – Indianapolis

Unlike many of the other vintage shops on this list, Vintage 54 Collective, “has a mix of artists, crafters, and classic antique dealers.”  Their carefully curated showroom displays their vintage items as they could be used.  Vintage 54 Collective also hosts a variety of events throughout the year, so there is no reason not to check out their shop!
