Hey guys!  I’m a little behind on my Treasure Hunting posts… I have a lot of goodies to show you and today I’m sharing a recent trip we took to Indy for a concert (Amos Lee and David Gray = amazing!) and I was thrilled that we could visit Midland Arts and Antiques while we were there.

One of my first Treasure Hunting posts featured Midland over a year ago (you can see it HERE) and that’s about how often I make it there – once a year.  We might have to change that though.   🙂

Midland is located in Indianapolis, just east of downtown.  It’s in an old factory/warehouse and there are two huge glorious floors of antique and vintage goodies.  Read more about Midland HERE on their website.

I noticed way more industrial-style decor and furniture this time, which has been a trend in home decorating.  There were also a good amount of authentic antiques and vintage pieces, and I took (cell phone) pictures to show you my favorites and maybe a couple odd pieces…

Isn’t this certificate awesome?   I think I need to make one and send it to all my DIY friends.  🙂   It was hanging sideways on a wall so it looks a little crooked here.

I could’ve bought so much more but we had our little car and I was trying to be selective.

The metal trunk is really cool and unique, I have no idea what it was originally used for but I just liked it.  I’ll probably take it to my own booth.  The big metal E is for the baby’s room, whenever I figure out where that will be and I start decorating it.  Ha

Very old books printed in Italian (something I haven’t seen before), they look so rustic and beautiful with the covers removed.

    Love that gazebo!! I have the Anglund books! In fact, I drew murals on my sons bedroom walls of characters from the book in life size! Boy climbing apple tree, boy riding tricycle, boy blowing bubbles, etc.
