Hamilton County (LINK to http://www.visithamiltoncounty.com/) has developed into a shopping addict's paradise. Boutiques, chain stores, you name it, we probably have it. Since I live closer to locations in Noblesville and Fishers, Indiana you'll likely find me shopping in both of those areas.
In Fishers, my favorite place to go to is Gallery 116 (LINK to www.g116.blogspot.com). They have hand-crafted gifts, jewelry, and home décor made by local and national artists. Located in a cute little home in downtown Fishers, there are three levels of fun items to discover.
When I'm looking for something to do over the weekend, I normally head over to Hamilton Town Center (LINK to www.simon.com/mall) in Noblesville with my friends to shop and catch a movie at the Hamilton 16 IMAX (LINK to www.gqti.com/theaters). There are plenty of chain stores and restaurants that can entertain you all day. It's also great in the spring and summer time to be able to walk around outside and enjoy the great warm weather of Indiana, when possible.
Finally, when I want a change in setting, I usually head to downtown Noblesville (LINK to http://www.noblesvillemainstreet.org/Retail_by_Category.html ) where they have a wide-variety of boutiques where you can shop. My personal favorite is A Corner Cottage (LINK to www.acornercottage.blogspot.com) right on the square. I am an antique junkie myself so I love to look at all the vintage furniture and knick-knacks that they offer. Along with this, they also carry a large selection of gifts, favors and greeting cards.
I can never get too bored when it comes to shopping in Hamilton County.
