GREENFIELD — Steve Wilson holds up a small, round utensil of some form by the handle.

“What do you think this is?” he asks his wife, Courtney, as the two recently went about the business of squaring away their downtown Greenfield shop full of antiques, vintage items and primitives.

It’s not an unusual question when a store is stocked with things that haven’t been seen for 50 years or more.

The general consensus on the mystery utensil favored some form of rotary material cutter for sewing.

The Wilsons, Shelby County residents who moved out of Indianapolis about nine years ago, opened the doors to Wilson’s Vintage Vault at 14 W. Main St. about a month ago, and have been hanging on through the hard backside of this year’s winter to get to spring and more foot traffic downtown.

Business hasn’t been bad, despite the weather, Steve said, and the store is quickly taking shape.
