TERRE HAUTE — Great find for new residents

My husband and I recently moved to North Terre Haute from Linton. We are both students at Ivy Tech and like most the slowdown of the economy has not helped our situation.

We were out looking for household items and furniture for our new home when we came across a re-sale shop called Another Man’s Treasure located at 4991 N. Lafayette. We met the owner, Lynn Allen, who was a great individual and huge help in finding what we needed for our home. We told him our situation of moving and he proceeded to show us his store which was full of items, most of which we could use, and we could not believe the low pricing on the gently used items he showed us.

We were not able to find everything we needed at this location, so Lynn told us after he closed up for the day here, he would take us to his other shop located at 1437 Ohio St., even though it is only open the first and third Saturday of the month.

We were very excited about this and agreed to meet him. We met Lynn and were astonished at the low prices that were on the large furniture pieces he had at this shop. We were also excited that not only did we get the furniture and household items we needed, we were also able to knock out a lot of our Christmas shopping at these two establishments by finding and buying some items that are hand crafted by a local who lives in North Terre Haute.

I just wanted to say that if Lynn’s kindness and friendliness is any indication of what Terre Haute holds, then we are going to love living here. We encourage you to visit Another Man’s Treasure. You will not be sorry and will get treated very well.
