Specializing in vintage & collectible Parrot and Wild Bird items. Always buying & selling!


Welcome to Antique Beak a shop for Parrot & Bird

Tis now officially Fall and you know what THAT means - no, not the looming specter of the holidays - I'm talking about the Fall Hummingbird migration. To celebrate a group of friends and I went to the Rockport, TX Hummingbird Festival last week. Rockport is one of the best places in the U.S. to view them as it's on a double migration route. We saw lots of Hummers and other birds as well but I have to admit part of the pleasure was watching the watchers with their birding outfits and camera lenses that looked like telescopes. It was almost like being on the set of the movie "The Big Year" and it was apparent some people take their bird watching VERY seriously.
But you know me, bird watching wasn't the only item on the agenda and on the last day we hit up a few of the antique shops. Found a few things, too, for what better place to find birds (both real and vintage) than in Rockport?
Here are a few pics of the trip, with photo credit being given to Ellen O'Reilly (except for the pic of all of us, shot by a random resident....)

With the Festival a thing of the past we are now back to work as evidenced by the addition of ten items this week, all with a paper theme (OK, maybe not the Christmas Ornament but it DOES come in a box). By clicking on the "The Week's Arrivals" link in the banner above you'll be treated to the latest landings including an Art Deco Stark Davis print that's both colorful and contemporary despite its 70+ years, Victorian ephemera that's perfect for crafting, and if your magazines are getting out of hand we invite you to round 'em up in the rack.

Wish you could keep up with the new listings on the Beak but don't have the
time (or memory) to keep checking back week after week? By popular demand we've
created a newsletter that's not only fun but will advise you when new items
have been added, typically twice a month. If you'd like to get in on the action
just send us an email and we'll take it from there. Of course, you can
unsubscribe at any time.

Hey! We're now on Twitter! Follow us @wingwoman2.

October will be a busy month for us so we won't be listing again until the end of the month but chances are you DEFINITELY find it worth the wait. ;-)

Until then, then ~Jennifer @ Z' Buzzing Beak

We also buy bird items and consider trades in some cases. If you have
anything you think we'd like, let us know!

We know how difficult it is to buy items seen only on a flat screen, so we have
taken a few views of most items so you can get a good idea of what it looks
like from all angles. If you need additional photos of anything please
don't hesitate to ask!
