This weekend after a great lunch at a little Indianapolis spot called Tortas, my husband and I made our first stop at Reclaimed!, which is located in the city’s Fletcher Place neighborhood.
First, I have to tell you that this is one of my favorite little buildings in Indy. I had silly dreams of opening a little shop there or a photo studio or something when it was vacant a couple years ago.
Then a cute vintage shop rented the space. But one day, when I was driving by, it became clear that it had a new occupant – Reclaimed!
Saturday marked our first trip there and it was a delight. Packed into this tiny space were dozens of gorgeous stained glass windows, hundreds of pieces of vintage hardware, and all kinds of oddball furnishings, including a fun 1960s era dryer chair from a salon.
This is one of those places where you have to pay real attention to see everything.
There are items above, below and all around you.
Some the stuff is true architectural salvage. If you own an older home or a business in a historic building, you can probably find something to help restore your space in this store.
But it’s also a great place to find an architectural piece you can use to add a little character to an otherwise boring place.
But this shop is not about pure salvage. It’s got plenty of fun vintage furnishings and accessories to add a little kick to your home.
Some of my favorites were the old cameras, suitcases and typewriters.
Next time you’re near Fletcher Place – which is located between downtown Indy and Fountain Square – check out Reclaimed!
And before I leave you, here’s one more look at this amazing building:
