Abernathy’s is a wonderfully eclectic shop that specializes in the classically vintage and delightfully strange. Located now at 432 W. 3rd Street in Davenport, it has joined the businesses on the west side of the downtown expansion, after being displaced by the April 2019 flooding.
The shop is a place I recommend to people often who just don’t quite know what to buy for a particular person. It sells so many different things and is a fun place to visit. It makes gift shopping a delight.
The store has fully grown into its new space and it is absolutely beautiful, a mix of the marvelous and the dark. Abernathy’s sells vintage and “vintage reproduction” clothing for men and women as well as a selection of accessories and jewelry to compliment all classic looks.
Abernathy’s also offers a nice collection of toiletries and sundries for one’s personal care. Whether it’s an eau de toilette your seeking or beard balm for a certain gentleman, this shop has options to explore.
Abernathy’s is a locally owned business that supports other local creatives – the shop sells wares made by over 20 different local artists, such as Revived Light candles, Death Stitch Custom Clothing flannels, and Isabel Doom statues.
Abernathy’s has a history with the local pin-up culture and supports many of the men and women drawn to the art form. You can find them on the road throughout the year, traveling and supporting local events.
