As spring slowly approaches, many of us are ready to open up the windows and refresh both ourselves and our space. And though new things are beautiful, old things are unique. Terre Haute offers quite a few local antique shops that are the perfect place to find new to you decor pieces, vintage jewelry, and show stopping collectables. For me personally, I have grown up antiquing with family. As an angsty teenager, I had to find some way to make antiquing “fun”, so I began collecting vintage pins from the 60s and 70s and vintage cameras. Some 20 years later, I still actively search for cameras I can add to my collection and weave into my decor at home. After a year off of antiquing due to Covid, I was finally able to have a fun day of antiquing around town, here’s a list of some of the great places we have right here in Terre Haute, IN.
Glendy’s Uptown Mall is a Terre Haute antiquing staple, servicing locals and antique fans for decades. Formally Nancy’s Downtown Mall, Glendy’s offers 22,000 square feet of antiques, furniture, collectables, and more. Located at 901 Popular St., Glendy’s is located across the street from Terre Haute Brewing Company (hello shopping day complete with local craft beer after!) and Mogger’s Restaurant & Pub. Glendy’s has long been one of my go-to places when I am wanting to find some decorating inspiration and quality furniture pieces. Currently they are open Monday – Saturday 10am-5pm and Sunday 12pm-5pm.
Speaking of furniture. If you are looking for some amazing pieces, Antiques at the Meadows has an ever changing stock of antique furniture. Stock is updated daily, ranging from couches, hutches, cabinets, dining sets and various unique pieces that you won’t find else where (I saw stools with real alligator!). Located inside Meadows Shopping Center at 2800 Popular St., Antiques at the Meadows is open Monday thru Friday from 10am-5pm and Sundays 12-5pm.
No shade (pun intended), Shady Lane is one of my favorite local places to check out when antiquing. It might not be the largest antique shop, at just over 10,000 square feet, but I always end up finding something totally unexpected that I love there. Located further south at 9247 S US HWY 41, Shady Lane has a very large variety of collectable glassware. If that isn’t your cup of tea, there are many booths with vintage clothing and jewelry, vinyl records, and items that are perfect for re-purposing or upcycling. If you aren’t into all the do it yourself stuff, they have many pieces from vendors who have don’t the work for you and updated vintage pieces. If your ready to go shopping at Shady Lane Antique Mall, you can visit them Monday-Friday from 10am-5pm and Sunday, 12pm-5pm.
