When the temperatures turn cold and the Christmas music starts playing in the stores, Rooster and I gravitate toward Noblesville Indiana. We aren’t department store fans. Antique shops are more our style. Plus, the people in this small city know how to lay on the holiday spirit. We decided to make our visit in the middle of the week to avoid the weekend crowds. The warm December day didn’t hold a promise of snow; however, we thought the mild temperatures would make walking down the street better. Rooster and I don’t need a mountain of white stuff to enjoy a winter adventure in Noblesville Indiana.
Our first stop in Noblesville Indiana
We selected Antiques on the Square as our first Noblesville stop. A collection of interesting antiques and specialty merchandise dwell between these four walls of this unique business. We never fail to find something we’d like to take home with us. Sometimes we find it fun to look at all the items. I will allow the pictures to speak for themselves.
The decorative store window
Santa Clauses, action figures and Barbie
Quilts and More
A Plastic Jesus
Our second stop in Noblesville Indiana
After wandering around the downtown area, we decided to eat. Rooster and I also found a rare antique store. Randy’s Toy Shop specializes in old toys, and they do restoration and make sales. Stepping through the door became a blast from the past. Rooster wished he had a lot of money to buy the seven hundred Tweety Bird he saw in the window.
Micky and Minnie
Rooster and I had fun on our Noblesville, Indiana adventure. It put us both in a holiday mood. We will probably go back again next year. There is nothing like Jack Frost nipping at your nose, a decorative shop window, and a little bit of small-town atmosphere to put a person in a Christmas mood. Merry Christmas to one and all.
