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.
And I know you’re probably wondering – what did I buy??
Here you go….
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.
And these two sweet little books by Joan Walsh Anglund…
Here’s a peek at the inside of each –
SO sweet. <3
Which are your favorites above? I’d love to know!
p.s. Come back tomorrow because I’m posting a new table makeover!
