The Art Deco Period went from 1920 and lasted through the 1930s. It is defined by a symmetric designs in all things from architecture to jewelry. This was post World War I and the ladies fashions had evolved from corsets and long sleeved dresses to no sleeved short flashy dresses “Flappers”.
I started the company with my wife back 2008. We chose the name Indypicker as we are from Indiana a few years before American Picker became a reality show on the history channel.
I have been a collector since the mid 1960s collecting baseball cards and then later radios that my grandfather would give me. My wife and I started going to antique malls and stores right after we got married in Merced California where we were stationed in the United States Air Force. we just did it for fun and there was no cost unless you bought something. Airman in the 1970s didn't make that much money.
Indypicker has been around since 2008 selling all types of vintage collectibles. We now have a section that focuses on estate sale jewelry, watches, coins/currency and collectible writing items such as vintage pens and mechanical pencils.
