Shopping Local for Antique Additions
It’s true what they say, age adds character. In interior decoration, this maxim is evident in popular home design shows. Celebrity designers on Fixer Upper, Good Bones, and Home Town all clamor toward antique shops when hunting for cozy home-filling pieces, such as reclaimed wood boxes, dusty steamer trunks, or musty classic books. Styles come and styles go, but one thing is for certain, the vintage or antique will always add a sense of history and comfort to your home. Last month we led you to several places to find top-tier custom pieces, but this month we’ll be pointing out a few of the best antique shops in Central Indiana!
