When in Sugarcreek, be sure to stop by and visit the Purpose Shop located next to Andreas Furniture at the corner of State Route 39 and North Broadway. We are not your typical Antique store. Celebrating New Purpose, Old Purpose, Repurpose, and most of all God's Purpose. Featuring Antiques, Collectibles, Glass, Pottery, Nostalgia, Primitives, Longaberger Baskets, Teas and Spices, Essential Oils, Watkins Products, Live Edge and Antique Furniture, and much more. Open year round Monday through Saturday. Closed Holidays & Sundays. Visit us on Facebook for more information.
Owners are Mindy and Joe Croft. We started "The Purpose Shop" in the Spring of 2013 at the Walnut Creek Amish Flea Market and relocated to our present location in December of 2014 where we have been doing business for nearly 2-1/2 years. The building we are in previously housed an auto repair (Huprecht) shop for over twenty years and prior to that was Widders Shell Station. The location and building (same Swiss feel as can be found Downtown Sugarcreek) is ideal for what we do.
Located right on SR 39 next to Andreas Furniture just a few short blocks from downtown. Watch for the Sugarcreek sign at the corner of 39 and North Broadway. You will also know us by all the fun items outside and by our "Swiss Greeter Bear" at the front door. Once inside, customers often comment about how our shop doesn't feel like a "typical" Antique Store and how nicely things are displayed. It is somewhat of a treasure hunt visiting the store and we always make a point to tell people not to be bashful about picking things up or opening cabinets. Most people seem to be surprised by how much room there is inside and the variety of items for sale.
We have lots of treasures for the collector and for antique lovers but also many items for those people just wanting to be creative with their version of the latest Pinterest projects or searching out something unique. We feature both antique and live edge furniture for customers decorating and The Purpose Shop even carries a large selection of teas, spices, Watkins products, and essential oils. Hopefully will visit us and find out for yourself how much fun this little shop can be. Many of our customers have made us a regular stop when visiting Ohio Amish Country and many of those have become friends. For those of you who know us there is more to The Purpose here than simply Antiques. We are hoping you notice when you walk through our door. If the sign says open and there is a light on...stop in.
