Marvelous Midland

Know that feeling, when you drive up to a sale, whether it's an established outdoor market or a humble garage sale, that THIS is going to be a good one? It's that little tingle of anticipation about the finds that await just inside. Well, the first time we laid eyes on the Midland Arts and Antiques Gallery in Indianapolis, we had that feeling. And it has never disappointed us. The building is spectacular -- a 3-story, 19th-century brick factory that once housed a sash and door manufacturer, now is home to 2 floors of fabulous vintage treasures. Midland is heavy on the hip and trendy, from French furniture and chandeliers to turn of the century industrial pieces and contemporary artwork. The gallery has won numerous awards, and just opened a sister shop in Carmel, north of downtown. And the great thing is that there is terrific stuff in every price range. We have had a booth since 2006 and try to get down at least once a month to restock it. Check out these photos from our January trip:

The Midland Gallery is easily accessible from US 70; check out their website, for directions or more information. The staff is also terrific. Call them about anything you see pictured here! Or better yet, plan a road trip. And tell them that rhubarb reign sent you!!
