Stop 301 Shoppes in Chesterton, Indiana is one of the most unique antique shops I’ve ever seen! Riley’s Railhouse Bed and Breakfast (please, use the search bar here on-site to locate that unique Indiana B&B) mentioned that there was an unusual antique shop just behind them and across the train tracks. Well, of course I had to make it a point to check it out! I’m all for seeing how people do things differently–especially when it comes to antiques! I knew all of you would love it too. Set inside four train cars, this is such an unusual way to browse.
But it wasn’t always an awesome antique shop! Local residents of Chesterton, Indiana will remember the building and train cars as a long ago restaurant. Some shared that it has been several things in its history. But now? It holds quite the fun variety. What a great use for these train cars! You can wander the big stick-built center hub from which the four train cars span outwards. Each car seemed to have a different sort of theme, probably due to each particular vendor’s preference.
If you are a fan of glassware, luggage, taxidermy, vintage sewing boxes, books, or toys, you will certainly want to check this one out. I went home with quite a few board games for our frequent family game night that I had never seen before. I love a good deal! I had my eye on even more Indiana antiques. How fun is that?
