This past weekend I went back to Indiana to see my former roommates and classmates graduate! It was so good to see everyone again and get to celebrate their accomplishments.
On the way there, located on State Route 37, is a somewhat newly opened shop called Mercantile 37. This shop had its grand opening September 29, 2018. It’s owned by father/son duo, J.R. and Nick Roudebush. Mercantile 37 carries items that range from vintage finds, repurposed furniture, locally crafted pottery, handmade signs and custom lighting and furniture. Attached is a coffee shop/cafe called Wheelers. You can read more about the history of Wheelers here.
I have passed this cute little shop several times on the way to school, but it seemed like every time I drove by, they were closed. I was super excited to see that they were open when I was driving back home, so I had to stop and check it out.
The exterior itself is so cute. I absolutely adore the string lights and brick with the painted logo. The inside is even better. If I were to open my own shop one day, it would be very similar to Mercantile 37. Just look at all of the vintage goodness!
Isn’t it all just so dreamy?! I wish I was still close by so I could visit all the time! I did get a t-shirt so I can support their business by being a walking advertisement haha. If you live in the Muncie, Marion, Kokomo, Carmel or Anderson area you should definitely check Mercantile 37 out! Follow them on Instagram here.
