Happening Now!  Right now the locals are talking about Main Street Mercantile, where visitors can browse and purchase one of the largest collections of Purdue memorabilia. Do you enjoy eclectic furnishings and antiques?  Or are you looking for an item to feature in your home that will be a major conversation piece?  If so, Main Street Mercantile is the place to visit.  I remember the first time I visited the shop.  I was only a child, and I felt like my family had taken me to a museum of sorts filled with animalistic wood carvings, bright, alternative paintings, and fun Purdue collector items.  This shop showcases such diverse items.  The moment guests walk in the door, the raw power of many of the custom pieces makes the senses come alive.  There are three floors of treasures to stroll through, which makes it almost impossible to leave without purchasing at least one thing! Please enjoy these photos which I feel depicts this store better than words can do justice. [caption id="attachment_1221" align="aligncenter" caption="Wood Carved Seat"][/caption]
