Jaunt to the Past

Take time this summer to Keep It Local!

A quick summer adventure for the family isn’t far from home. Less than 40 minutes from Carmel, you can find a destination shopping experience just outside of Noblesville. A treasure trove of locally made goods and the opportunity to enchant yourself with the bygone era of roadside cafes is closer than you think.

Mercantile 37 is a family-owned business built on the premise of connection. Father and son duo, Nick and JR Roudebush wanted to create a place to showcase their own custom furniture and lighting talents, but quickly expanded their vision to include other local makers. The goal was to bring artisans all into one space and bring visitors back to a time when you could meet the people making the products locally. Currently, the shop has items from over 100 makers beautifully staged throughout the former 1940’s truck stop. From furniture, to handmade candles, antiques to locally crafted soaps, you can find unique gifts for everyone in the family.


In about 2 hours, you can shop, dine, and purchase products you are sure to feel good about. Most customers like to take 2-3 laps to get acquainted with the showroom, and then, allow time to dine at Wheeler’s Cafe. This charming establishment pays homage to the past when the entire building was known as a roadside diner. Now, Wheeler’s Cafe is a small breakfast and lunch cafe adjacent to the shop, offering the perfect sustenance to begin or complete your destination shopping adventure. Take time this summer to "keep it local." www.mercantile37.com
