Mockingbird Antiques in October

Posted on October 01, 2012 by Jamie Burton

 Sweet smelling Fall is in the air. Soft sunlight, cooler temperatures, and an impressive palette of colors popping up everywhere. Soon, whimsical folk figures and spooky vignettes will come to life in fields, front yards, and porches throughout our small Midwestern town. Autumn days tug at our heartstrings as memories of distant Octobers flutter by with the scattering of each new batch of falling leaves.We long for nothing more than to simply be out-of-doors. So, the time is right for vintage Halloween and Fall items to appear at Mockingbird Antiques. You can see a large, iron JOL sculpture(see photo), Halloween party hatbox decoration (see photos), vintage black cat lantern, large, vintage witch rattle, terra cotta and cement pumpkins, earlier metal magic answer box, metal owl sculpture, large, carved wooden squirrel, witch/ghost decorated sap buckets, and of course, old volumes of Edgar Allan Poe to keep you up at night. All this and more await your arrival. See you soon! -JB-

Hello from Mockingbird!

Posted on July 30, 2012 by Jamie Burton

David and I are pleased to have our online store up and running. A very special thank-you to our son Jared and Shopify for helping us orchestrate this endeavor. The variety of items that you see online are representative of what can be found in our Centerville, Indiana store; however (with the exception of store pick-up only) our unique online items will remain separate from our home store inventory, so there will be more to see and buy at Mockingbird from now on! You can shop with confidence, knowing that we use the same payment processor online as we do in our Centerville store. We will continue to put new items out weekly as well as seasonally. Next time: though we are still in the midst of the summer's heat, time does tend to pass quickly so we are beginning to prepare our store for Autumn by getting our Fall/Halloween items out. This will be true for our online store also.
