Treasure Hunt

 Treasure Hunt, Indiana Landmarks Center

Join the Treasure Hunt, Saturday, July 12 at Indiana Landmarks Center, 1201 Central Avenue, Indianapolis.

Saturday, July 12, 2014

8 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Indiana Landmarks campus & Old Northside neighborhood

At the third 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, and new features. The free event, expanded by an hour, runs from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., and includes entertainment—music and roving performers—homemade ice cream, and a scavenger hunt.


Jolly Roger’s Grog & Grill, a new feature tucked on the north side of Morris-Butler House, will feature beer, wine, grilled burgers and brats served by Hoaglin Catering (sorry, no urchins allowed because of the grog). This year, 12th Street will be closed from Central to Park Avenues to accommodate more vendors and food trucks—including breakfast options for early shoppers.


At Indiana Landmarks Center, 1201 Central Ave., and Morris-Butler House, 1204 N. Park Ave., more than 40 dealers in antiques, collectibles, and architectural salvage will set up booths on the parking lot, lawn and in Cook Theater. Demonstration booths, also new this year, include furniture painting—a great way to get tips on sprucing up battered vintage items. Visitors to the free event will find music on the plaza and an art show in the gallery of the repurposed nineteenth-century church.


Treasure Hunt includes 40 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.


Want ‘20s-looking sunglasses, the perfect straw sun hat? Visitors to French Lick and West Baden who love Indiana Landmarks’ shops in two grand hotels will be pleased to find a Landmarks Emporium pop-up shop selling cool, vintage inspired items. 


In its own booth, Indiana Landmarks will sell donated antiques, with proceeds benefitting the nonprofit preservation organization's work throughout the state. Indiana Landmarks is soliciting donations of antiques for sale in its booth—volunteers will pick them up; call Kelly at Indiana Landmarks, 639-4534, to make arrangements.
