Antique Treasures in Indiana
More antiquing in the Midwest
The Heartland is home to many genuinely rich antiquing destinations, including:
Irish Hills, Michigan Just 40 miles southwest of Ann Arbor along US-12, this pastoral region has dozens of antiques shops and malls tucked into small towns. In Brooklyn, Irish Hills Antiques (left) offers old brass typewriters, hand-carved furniture and country store collectibles. The annual Heritage Trail Garage Sale happens along US-12 on the second weekend in August.
Door County, Wisconsin This beautiful peninsula jutting into Lake Michigan (150 miles north of Milwaukee) touts 11 antiques stores. In Baileys Harbor, a 135-year-old barn houses Bailey's Barn Antique and Gifts, a 5,000-square-foot space filled with furniture and home decor.
Oronoco, Minnesota In 1857, miners found gold here. Visitors to this tiny town of 883 feel that way about the antiques malls and shops (10 miles north of Rochester). Stop by on the third weekend in August for the annual Gold Rush Days, a celebrated antiques festival with about 400 vendors.
