In one of my blogs this year, I wrote about NW Indiana, Hammond in particular, becoming the hub of art. We are dripping with talent here. It use to be, the surrounding suburbs of Chicago would always travel into Chicago to find what they wanted. Whether music, theatre, clothing, or food. Yes, there was also the "experience" that we wrapped ourselves in and enjoyed, that attracted us to Chicago.
Soon, and I do not know exactly when, but soon, people from Chicago will be coming to NW Indiana, and specifically Hammond IN, to enjoy time "away" from the city. To enjoy music, theatre, clothing, or food. I can feel it in the air I breath. There is an excitement brewing!
Thanks to you, the people, friends, who read my blog, I was asked to visit another shop in Hammond. "It's Just Serendipity", or Serendipity as I will use in this blog. They are located on Hohman Ave, just a few blocks from downtown Hammond. Serendipity specializes in everything old, brought to new, re-purposed in some cases, and from local people. Everything is clean, neat, organized, and there is a little bit of everything. This is just not a shop to browse. There is a feeling of "home" here.
Let me take you through some photos to get you familiar with Serendipity. I am not sure my photos will do them justice, however, if it gets you to go inside, then I have done my job.
