Minnich’s Antiques & General Store Receives December Honor

A little store in Uniondale that packs so much character and items for people to choose from whether you are looking for general store items, delicious made-to-order food, vintage soda and candy, antiques, hand dipped ice cream, and so much more. “In the last 7 years, we have worked so hard to get where we are today,” said Minnich. “I am living a dream I never dreamed I’d be living.”

Minnich said taking a leap of faith with the business and taking chances has allowed her business to grow. “You know the saying, ‘build it and they will come’, and that is what we did. This business has exceeded our expectations beyond belief. I didn’t know how crazy good this could really be.”

Minnich’s goal is to provide as many Indiana-made and local products as possible. Additional items are on the horizon. “The growth has allowed us to offer additional offerings such as expanding the menu line, candy, and other fun items.”.

Hugh’s Bakery & Coffeehouse Officially Welcomed with a Ribbon Cutting
Yaste opened Hugh’s Bakery & Coffeehouse in June 2017 in downtown Bluffton. Yaste had a dream and a vision at that time creating an environment for people to feel at home and creating a space for people to gather. The first location allowed Yaste to build the business; however, her goal was to own her own building and create the ambiance she had always visioned; an opportunity to provide more for the community.

The larger space can make that vision a reality bringing families in and offering fellowship for others. Yaste said, “I wanted to provide after-hours events for youth, young adults, or other events. This new space provides that opportunity; with the larger kitchen space I can now cater events and have more capacity to assemble and store items that I did not have in the other location.”
