Directions to Indulge! Antiques: From 105, take the Mohawk exit. Pass Bi-mart and Dutch Bros. and turn left at the next light. In the parking lot, take a jog to the left, then go straight back (away from Mohawk), between the two large buildings.  Indulge is on the back side of the building on the left, with the entrance facing 18th St.
