MidlandMidland Arts & Antiques Market plans to open a 12,000-square-foot location in Carmel off of 126th Street between Meridian Street and Keystone Avenue. Midland's flagship store occupies an historic former door factory and showroom just east of downtown between New York and Michigan streets (pictured here). Owner Robert Lebow, a local physician, denied a rumor that he's trying to sell the 150,000-square-foot downtown building for a condo conversion. But he said he'd like to convert the fourth floor into a condo for his own use. Midland also has a small store in Michigan and is looking for space in New York City.

  • New York City? Sorry, bad Pace Salsa joke.

    Good for him. I wish them well. I just hope he does not move out of downtown. There is definitly a need for his business.
  • Well, I hope they don't have scantily clad mannequins, or they're going to be toast. :-)

    This sounds like a good move for them. I'm intrigued to see how an NYC store would work.
  • Man, Nick, I thought I was going to be the first one to make a manequin joke. Mayor Brainard better put a quick stop to those crazy women or his hard work defining the image of Carmel will go down the drain and it will instead be the butt of jokes nationwide.
  • Carmel housewives opposed to VC's. It must suck to be a Carmel husband. Just adds to their image of being frigid and boring.
  • Sorry, VS's. That is what I get for trying to muli task. I wonder what I just e-mailed the boss.
  • I thought Carmel people only bought new furniture? Or pre-aged furniture.. The authentic issue doesn't seem like it would work in those McMansions! Ok, I'm an a**.
  • Hey, Benjamin, it's OK. One thing I know for sure, they are afraid to come south of 465, unless it's for Colts/Pacers games. Then it's right back in their SUV's....
  • LOL guys. Once upon a time I lived on a numbered street between 38 and 64, and people from north of 465 wondered if it was safe there.

    Not only was it safe, but my really old house cost more per square foot than their new ones.

    And in those days there was a VS at Glendale that I don't remember anyone complaining about.
  • Hey Cory. I really, REALLY would appreciate hearing something about the JW design update! Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
  • On a serious real estate note, I've heard that places like Midland have some trouble competing nowadays since all it takes to have an antique store is a digital camera and a website. Anyone able to comment on that from a professional perspective?

  1. Uh, sorry Johnnie, but you are incorrect. Despite the assertions by yourself and various defenders and captains, sports attendance is NOT off significantly at most sporting events in the US. Variances in attendance has been in the range of single digits, both + & - for years now. MLB has had most of its best overall attendance nubers in the last decade, and that trend has been consistent for most major sporting events. The number one issue cited by most fans when asked about attendance is the overall cost of attending. The presence of HD and big screen televisions in home doesn't even register, as a factor for not attending an event. VALUE in the product is the key, and apparently is something lacking in the current ICS. What other explanation is there when with what is routinely touted as the "best" racing on the planet, fans are staying away in DROVES. A "close" title battle into the last event at Fontana, with the "cars and stars" of the ICS, and who showed up? MAYBE 8K. Sorry, but HD TV isn't to blame for that kind of fan apathy.

  2. Do you need finance to establish your business ? Are you interested in getting a loan at 3% from our private company? If so please Email: suntrust_oil@blumail.org

  3. If she was worth the $ the public outcry over direct tv dropping them would have kept them on their dishes as we have seen with other companies. I too quit watching channel 13 after she showed up since I left channel 8 because of her all show rather than production results. When Randy on 8 corrected her she had a big head and incorrectly challenged his correction for pronunciation of a city. Other antics while she matures was too much for me with her very inaccurate forecasts. All the forecasters were predicting rain until Thursday except Chris. They predicted sunny on Thursday but instead of rain until Thursday upon which the sun would finally make it out in full glory Chris was right on the money just as I too predicted looking at the radar on weather.gov. One thing I love about Angela is the fear you can see in her every time it thunders in the winter. It far exceeds the entertainment value of her body language (high heel noise drags, depression, etc) when her forecasts are so incorrect. Her hair stands on end, you have to see it!!!
