My name is Robin. If you have found this page, then you probably love the thrill of the hunt for vintage items as much as I do. I have been going to estate auctions since I was a child. I loved it then, I love it now. I love a good garage sale and thrift store too. Basically, I love the thrill of the hunt. I have done several of the various "longest yard sale" trips. I created this site to share my finds and show how I repurpose or makeover these treasures. I don't claim to be an expert—sometimes I Google my way through a project!
Since I cannot keep everything I find, I have a booth in three antique malls:
Dutch Lady Antiques in Nappanee, Indiana—It is a cool place in the heart of Amish country. It is in a building called Coppes Commons which was an old factory that made cabinets, including Hoosier cabinets. They have a Hoosier cabinet museum there too.
The Standard in Bourbon, Indiana. They have great antiques plus ice cream, cupcakes and other delicious baked goods! A great place to sit a spell, check out some great antiques and grab a snack!
Pipe Creek Mercantile in Peru, Indiana. Formerly known as Front Porch Primitives, it is in a convenient location just off of US 31 just south of Peru, Indiana.
I am also at Primitive Gatherings, a once a month gathering of fun things in Mentone, Indiana.
