Antique Treasures in Indiana
Visiting Antique Alley: where to start
For a detailed map of local antiques shops, plus information on lodging, restaurants, historical attractions and festivals in the area, contact the Richmond/Wayne County Convention and Tourism Bureau (800/828-8414). Look for overnight specials including "Just Us Girls" weekend packages.
Other tips for your trip:
-- Check shop hours before you go; stores are usually open most weekdays and Saturdays. Sunday hours vary, but larger antiques dealers are typically open by noon.
-- Drive or rent a car with plenty of storage space to haul oversized treasures.
-- Some shops take only cash or checks, so be prepared with more than just a credit card.
