During our stroll through Morgantown, Indiana, the Antique Cooperation sign read “closed.” The shop windows were so full of fabulous furniture and items, that I really wanted in. I was so disappointed for a minute–but then I saw someone moving inside. Not one to resist a great Indiana town shop, I knocked on the door, and I begged the lady inside to let me in to take pics. I am not above banging on a door and hollering.
Antique Co-op in Morgantown, Indiana
I’m only kidding. I didn’t holler. Not too loud, anyway. It was worth feeling a little foolish. I am glad that I didn’t miss this Morgan County antique shop. You won’t want to miss it either.
Located in what was once an old hardware shop, it still holds the tall ladder on rails. Today, though, the shelves hold vintage dishware and books, old advertising, and various odds and ends. It is such a neat touch. I am so happy that they left the ladder and shelving in place, and found a way to not only work around it, but to work it in to the design of the shop.
From furniture to light fixtures, Antique Cooperative really shines. Head to the back of the shop for even more fun items. See what I mean? It is almost overflowing. This is the kind of antique shop you want when you say, “I feel like hunting for antiques today.”

Happily, I did get a chance to say “hey” to the owner–he had been out picking up new old things to stock in his shop and had the back of his vehicle packed to prove it.
