Saturday, July 11, 2015

8 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Indiana Landmarks campus & Old Northside neighborhood

At this year's annual Treasure Hunt -- an antiques market at Indiana Landmarks' campus accompanied by y'arrrd sales throughout the Old Northside -- you can expect more vendors, more food trucks, ice cream, and entertainment including music and roving performers.


At Indiana Landmarks Center, 1201 Central Ave., and Morris-Butler House, 1204 N. Park Ave., where 40+ dealers in antiques, collectibles, and architectural salvage will set up booths on the parking lot, lawn and in Cook Theater. Demonstration booths -- including furniture painting and gilding -- show a great way to spruce up battered vintage items.


To keep shoppers refreshed, we'll have a food truck court with seating on 12th Street, our Jolly Roger Grog 'n Grill (for patrons 21 and over), and an Old Fashioned Ice Cream Parlor by Zaharakos inside Morris-Butler House. We'll even have a water and treat station for Fido, sponsored by Three Dog Bakery.


Treasure Hunt includes more than 50 y'arrrd sales throughout the Old Northside Historic District, including the Big, Big, Really Big Sidewalk Yard Sale at All Saints Episcopal Church at 16th and Central. Visitors can pick up a map showing Treasure Hunt y'arrrd sale locations throughout the neighborhood at Indiana Landmarks Center.


Admission: Free from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. $5 per person for early admission at 8 a.m.
