Planes, Trains, and Automobiles




…and Gear-Heads the world over can’t get enough of anything that moves by the “almighty” engine! They collect everything from model trains, to vintage car grills, to antique wooden props. Good news for the Motorized Enthusiasts out there–Main Street Shoppes has a lot of what you’re looking for. One trip around our two story antique mall will reveal the popularity of these “Need for Speed” items.








Indy is known to have a heart devoted to racing, and we have lots of race memorabilia for die hard collectors. Henry Ford once said, “ Auto racing began 5 minutes after the second car was built.” Yep, we understand that!





Ever build a model train set with your dad? Ever watch the History Channel and marvel at the ingenuity of those such as Cornelius Vanderbilt? Main Street Shoppes has something for those fascinated by the power of steam and coal. IMG_5573Thomas Jefferson said in 1802, “the introduction of so powerful an agent as steam to a carriage on wheels will make a great change in the situation of man.” Boy, didn’t he have it right?




Does the thrill of defying gravity and taking flight thrill you? Main Street Shoppes has aviation items galore–from pictures, to collectables, to books, to an antique barometer. Some flying buff once said, ” Two wrongs don’t make it right, but two Wrights do make an Airplane.” Yep, we understand that!IMG_4353


So to all the Horsepower Junkies of Indiana…and to the loved ones constantly searching for the perfect gift for that adrenaline lover or mechanized history buff–look no further. Main Street Shoppes has you covered. Come shop…and discover. 




“Life is like an old time rail journey…delays, sidetracks, smoke, dust, cinders, and jolts…interspersed only occasionally by beautiful vistas and thrilling bursts of speed. The trick is to the thank the Lord for letting you have the ride.”–author unknown
