Midwest Living Review

Vintage finds and treasures from France, Belgium and Holland make for an eclectic inventory of antiques in Honest Abe's hometown.

Honestly, even Abe might be surprised to discover this little corner of Europe in his hometown. This charming antiques shop carries a unique inventory of items culled from France, Belgium and Holland, along with artifacts, architectural accents and other vintage finds.

Named for Rudyard Kipling's poem about Queen Victoria, the comfortable shop isn't the least bit stuffy or highbrow — it's housed in a late 1920's Mediterranean Revival building that was once a car dealership. Whether it's an old circus sign from France or a 100-year-old stained-glass window from a small Dutch bakery, the thrill here is in the hunt.
