It’s another stop on Indiana’s Antique Alley. I know, there are so many shops in this one small town alone. I love it! They are all so different from each other, too. Inside this one, there’s always something interesting hiding behind that book or under that table.

What a range of stuff! On the same shelf you may see something industrial, something primitive, and something country. It’s pretty fun to look around this Wayne County antique shop. I know our boys kept pointing out the unique gadgets and other unusual things that caught their eyes. The oldest is getting to that age where he just loves stuff–this shop was right up his alley.

In fact, we stumbled upon a vintage arcade racing game. How fun would that be? Our youngest thought that was wonderful. He’s at that age where he is all about cars.

There was also a visually appealing old plastic milk crate full of soda bottles. The colors of them, the reds and greens and browns, made me wish I were a bit more crafty so I could actually put them to good use! But even so, browsing around Dusty Rusty Stuff, we had a really good time.

Head towards the back of the business and you will see something else: a picking room. What is that? According to Dusty Rusty Stuff:

The store has an enormous backroom that has evolved into the “Picking Room”. The “Picking Room” has pieces and parts ready for transformation and re-purposing, new merchandise and discounted items, a pickers paradise of treasures ready to be discovered!
