ComeOnIn Antiques Offers Eclectic Finds for Junkers

Posted December 30th, 2015

My daughter, aka Capt. Jacks, and I have been antiquing since she was in the womb. Throughout her childhood years, we spent loads of time in junk shops and at flea markets. She even volunteered with me throughout the years at local charity thrift shops. Now, a well-respected commercial interior designer, Capt. Jacks is really fun to go “junking” with these days, and especially on this day, when we visited ComeOnIn Antiques in Seymour, Mo. 

The reason I am especially fond of this place is because it doesn’t have many “fake antiques.” It’s the real deal here, run by a family that is interesting and at times, funny.

I want to shout about the merits of this actual antique shop where you won’t find “made in Chine” on items.

We don’t want to know why this box is empty.

We visited before Christmas, and of course, the place was decked out in the appropriate theme. You’ll find this practice in place for all seasons here.

Hmmm. What would you do with this collection?

The store also offers a wide selection of prosthetics — vintage, of course.
