Antiques. In my family if you do not have an interest in collecting antiques, then shopping with the family will not be a fun expedition! My Grandmother was the oldest of 13 children. Every year the sisters and sister-in-laws would take a week long trip somewhere in the United States or Europe to site-see and shop. They would search for collectibles to add to their vast array of antiques decorating their homes. Or they would shop for the perfect wedding present for nieces and nephews. Over the years and 3 generations of children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren the family has collected beautiful pieces of art, furniture and jewelry.
I, myself, am an avid collector and have been blessed to have family pieces passed down to me and also purchased a few. But instead of traveling all over the country and beyond for the perfect antique, I have found the piece right here in Lafayette-West Lafayette, Indiana!
Leaping Leopard Antiques is home to a wide array of antique furniture, architectural items, artwork, clocks, jewelry, silver and pewter, lamps and more. There are hundreds of booths ready for exploration. Shoppers can get lost in the inventory of items, but will find themselves at the check-out with a handful of unique merchandise to purchase! To quote my mother, “The diversity of their antiques will keep visitors browsing for hours!”
Vacation, Relaxation, Fun; one image that comes into our heads is sand, sun and water. Locals travel south to find their peace and quiet, while adventure, history, shopping, the arts and entertainment, and more, can be found in our own backyard.
