Just outside of Chesterton lies a shopping hub: Schoolhouse Shop and Antiques in Furnessville, Indiana. This 1886 built schoolhouse turned series of shops displays the type of resourcefulness that keeps abandoned buildings from becoming demolished buildings and turns them into beautiful usable spaces! Other towns and entrepreneurs should take note. Do you see what amazing things can happen with a lot of hard work and a vision?
More than just an antique shop, this building features multiple levels with a variety of shops. The building just keeps going on and on! Every time I would think we were nearing the end we would discover another shop! It was so much fun. Floral arrangements and fresh flowers, clothing, jewelry, toys, home decor, and even kitchen items are neatly organized and arranged. The toy section is really cute. Our youngest in particular was overjoyed by all the puppets! Each shop is absolutely amazing. They differ so much from each other except for one thing: they all maintain the same classy style that sums up Schoolhouse Shop.
Again, no trip to this side of Porter County is complete without a visit to this great small town stop! Each shop covers all the bases from kitchenware and entertaining to flowers and home decor to gifts, clothing, and antiques. You will love the serene atmosphere! See how easy it is to shop small businesses? Look at all the great things you have been missing.
