Clink’s Antiques LLC has a unique story thanks to owner Paul Clinkenbeard.

Clinkenbeard is a retired U.S. Air Force and Air National Guard Veteran. Having served 25 years, he has traveled abroad and had the opportunity to see all different ways of life. However, one in particular stuck out to him in a way that forever changed his love of old things.

While stationed in England in the 70’s, Clinkenbeard discovered that every little village had what was referred to as “Mid-Week Market Day.” He noticed there always seemed to be someone who sold goods and wares from years past. While perusing, he found beautiful mantle clocks and jewelry he brought back for his loved ones. Little did he know the impact that would have on him in later years.

As he traveled, he spent time searching for more items that he found interesting and continued to add to his collection and the collections forming for those around him.
