On the last beautiful Fall day in Indiana, Dan said, "let's go to one of your little towns in the Indiana Antique Guide." I chose to explore Covington, which is west of Indianapolis. What a fun day it was discovering Covington. There are two antique shops that I want to share with you today.
The first one is House With the Lions ANTIQUES on 314 Liberty Street on the town square.
Many lions and mounted animal heads...
and dolls of all kinds can be found there.
I really enjoyed shopping here.
This is what I took home with me: old photos to use in my crafting, an interesting oval frame and a card of delicate lace.
Then I went across to the south side of the town square to Glorie Bee Antiques at 314 Liberty Street.
Glory Bee!! Once in awhile I run into the proprietor who is very special and Gloria was one of them. I had the grandest visit with her. This is the first thing you see when you enter and I found it especially inviting because I LOVE dining room tables filled with fine china. The mannequin at the head of the table is the mascot of the shop.
The windows are intriguing with an adorable witch and original Wendy and Michael figures from Peter Pan.
I really enjoyed dancing around the store.
There's a lovely garden out back.
I purchased this beautiful paperweight that came from an estate sale.
Then we ate dinner at the Beef House. It seems everyone I am talking to has experienced this restaurant before me. Where have I been?
I've found a new place to take friends when they visit me: Covington & the Beef House. Look at the size of these rolls. Dan put his fist beside them to show you how really huge they are.
The rustic environment makes you feel like you are on a retreat, away from it all. We really enjoyed our visit there and will be going back soon for sure!
We didn't make it to the shops in Eugene or Cayuga. Maybe next time.
