Polk County News 2A polk County Itemizer-Observer • November 1, 2017 Treasures abound in Timeless Antiques Dawn Lynn, vendors share love of old, repurposed things, interesting collections, and furniture By Emily Mentzer The Itemizer-Observer INDEPENDENCE — Step into the welcoming atmos- phere of Timeless Antiques and More and it may be dif- ficult to step out empty- handed. The shop, on the corner of South Second and C streets in Independence, is chock full of antiques, collectibles, and knickknacks, but some- how manages to not feel cluttered and claustropho- bic. Dawn Lynn, owner of the boutique, harbors a love of old things and shares that passion with her vendors and shoppers. “It was built to last,” Lynn said. “It amazes me, espe- cially my books, to think about where it’s been and how it ended up here. I open an old book and find an old postcard that someone stuffed in there, or an old note, and it’s dated 1842.” In a frequently disposable world, Lynn enjoys the craftsmanship and pride taken in old things. “I always think about a story about the old man who used to go around with one of those carts and sharpened people’s knives and scissors, because you didn’t just toss them away, you kept those things,” Lynn said. Timeless is an antique shop with a group of ven- dors selling wares in one place. Not everything is an antique, and prices aim to be reasonable, Lynn said. “We want to make sure everyone in the community can afford things, that it’s not just a high-priced an- tique store, because I think that’s important for where we live, demographic-wise,” Lynn said. “It’s huge for col- lege students to come in and find a desk or nightstand or something that will work for their dorm or apartments, and they can afford it.” Her shop carries furni- ture — painted and rustic, antique and repurposed — clothing, jewelry, old quilts, beeswax, honey, wood-wick candles, and decorations for the holidays. Lynn encour- ages shoppers to enjoy their visit as much as their shop- ping by keeping the kettle on for tea or coffee, and even serves cookies or doughnuts on occasion. “It’s not uncommon to walk in and see some people sitting around chatting and drinking tea,” Lynn said. She got her start by selling old books at flea markets. “I started getting a few things to help decorate my spaces, and those seemed to do well, too,” Lynn said. She moved from flea mar- kets to bazaars to antique shows to vendors spaces at different malls. “This space became avail- able at the same time I was moving out of a vendor space, and the timing was just good,” Lynn said. “I’ve been surprised by how much people are happy to have something like this back in town. The feedback has been amazing.” eMIlY MeNTzer/Itemizer-Observer Dawn Lynn loves to share her enjoyment of old things by creating new pieces of jewelry out of old ones.
