Treasures abound in Timeless Antiques
Dawn Lynn, vendors share love of old, repurposed things, interesting collections, and furniture
By Emily Mentzer
The Itemizer-Observer
into the welcoming atmos-
phere of Timeless Antiques
and More and it may be dif-
ficult to step out empty-
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-
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
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.”
