While most college students may not think of antiquing as their first choice to spend a Saturday, Vintage Treasures might change that. As the company’s commercial says, this “is not your mother’s antique mall.” With over 22,000 square feet of floor space and more than 100 vendors, Vintage Treasures is a celebration of repurposed treasures and local businesses. With vendors selling wares that range from collectibles, antiques, comic books and handcrafted goods, Vintage Treasures has that perfect gift for even the most difficult person on your gift list, and is good to simply to spend an afternoon browsing the treasures of the past.

Hours:

Monday – Friday 6 a.m. – 2 p.m.

Located just across from the courthouse in downtown Warsaw, B-Mac’s is a humble diner tucked away among fine restaurants. And yet this humble diner, which serves breakfast any time and lunch specials to fit any budget, deserves a visit. It’s the perfect place to have a hearty breakfast and enjoy catching up with old friends, or give an early day a great start. However, if you want to beat the rush, go early.
