Window Shopping

Out and about this week, I had the opportunity to drop by a handful of charming local shops.

American Treasures and One Earth Gallery
This Lafayette staple carries a variety of Native-American and international fair trade items, including a huge array of hand-crafted gold and silver jewelry.

Genevee’s Studio
This full-service salon also has a vintage clothing store in the basement with a variety of men’s and women’s clothing, shoes, and accessories.

Hot House Market
This is a brand new vintage boutique at the top of 9th Street hill, carrying mid-century, bohemian, and shabby chic housewares. They also have a selection of women’s vintage clothing, shoes, jewelry and accessories.

Lala Gallery

This was my first time in the gallery, and the owner gave me a tour of the artwork and workshop. They not only sell art, but host a variety of classes for all ages. There was a large selection of desirable pieces here, and I found myself fawning over the owner’s own work hanging in the back. To die for.

Main Street Mercantile

This store boasts a huge variety of vintage and antique items, ranging from household items to vintage curiosities. They also carry quite a bit of Purdue ephemera. One special thing about this store is the number of large items in stock, like conversational art pieces and unusual wood carvings.

The spoils: A dress, a necklace, several birthday gifts, rock candy, and a lot of coveted items on my wish list. Such as [click pictures to embiggen]:
