White Dog Vintage Mass Ave. Indianapolis

You guys I found the sweetest vintage store ever in Indianapolis.  When I imagine Junk in da Trunk's brick and mortar store it looks alot like White Dog Vintage.  Does that mean I have to envision something else now, or can I use it as inspiration?

Jill Thixton is the owner of said sweet store and the cutest part is that her mom helps her out with the store as well!  I think  I need to meet this Jill Thixton person someday as maybe we are kindered spirits on a treasure hunt with our mammas.

White dog is a mix of funky vintage clothing as well as kitschy mid-century housewares that you know I enjoy very very much.   Jill does a great job of curating all of her treasures by color and style which I find is very appealing to the eye.  The store flows from dark, manly industrial on one wall to happy cheerful yellow and turquoise in the center to handmade and one of a kind items near the register. 

Jill's displays are so great that I snapped away with my camera for a good 15 minutes before I even got to shopping!  I did make some great purchases all of which are going into my personal collection.  I found these great Mother's and Father's day window signs from the 60's that I'm sure you will see around here in the next few months to remind you to make some purchases for those special people in your life.  I also got some fabulous pink plastic poodle boot shapers that neither I nor my shopping partner had ever seen. But which I am in need of since I don't want my favorite boots to lose their shape, and this pair of pink poodles are doing their job well.  I also picked up an amazing smelling blood orange and beramot handmade soy candle, that the stylish shop girl talked me into, which I have had burning non-stop since I got home.  And the last thing I purchased was a vintage inspired glass with a map of New York City because sometimes when I'm drinking my sweet tea I need to be in a New York state of mind.

All in all the next time I am in Indy, White Dog Vintage is definitely a must stop by on my list as it should be on yours.  The entire Mass Ave community in Indy is amazing, it's a great mix of eclectic and unique boutiques, amazing smelling restaurants and cafes  which you know are right up my alley.  Oh and the greatest thing was that pretty much all of the shops on Mass Ave. were pet friendly so Tank got to shop as well, although he was more into saying Hello to all the customers in said shops.

White Dog Vintage can be found at 8456 Massachusetts Ave.  on Facebook HERE  or Blogging HERE

I hope I've persuaded some of you to get in the car and make the weekend jaunt to Indy it really is a great city.
