Jill and Bill Dixon are the quintessential fun loving, friendly, knowledgeable and downright folksy owners of Parke County’s largest antique venue. The couple have been collecting antiques and vintage items since the early days of their marriage. Jill has been a lifelong Covered Bridge Festival crafter along with her mother, Millie Warnick, an early member of the Covered Bridge Art Gallery who was instrumental in bringing the Mansfield area into the festival mode.
The Dixon’s Timeless ’n Classic Antique Mall is located on the east side of the Rockville square. Keeping the tradition of the former owners, Overpecks, the old Rockville High School senior pictures still line the upper walls. Folks often come round to look for their mother, father or grandparents in the photographs. Today over 90 vendors display in the 23,000 square foot space. Each booth is filled with gems from the past. Tucked in beside a Fire King piece may be a child’s dress. The sweet surprises the vendors have arranged are part of the charm of Timeless ’n Classic. There’s something special for everyone to discover.
You’ll find this shop open, light and welcoming. Jill is usually on hand to greet visitors with water and a rocking chair for you to “sit a spell” and visit. Walking into Timeless ’n Classic is like a feeling of coming home to see a favored Aunt and Uncle—one of the things that makes Timeless ’n Classic so special and unique.
So c’mon into Rockville’s largest antique mall, open daily 10-5 and Sunday 12-5.
