She’s a grand ol’ flag, and there have been many incarnations of Old Glory in our nation’s history. Jason Lenox, proprietor of Antèks, has been on a year-long quest to collect classic flags and flag memorabilia. This week until July 4th, those pieces will be on sale to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project.
Back in 2011, Lenox found a 48 star American flag. Finding a flag that predates the statehood of Alaska and Hawaii inspired Lenox to set out to find more vintage flags and flag memorabilia. In addition to the original find, he collected two additional 48 star flags as well as a collection of needlepoint, posters, plates, and many more items that give a glimpse into the evolution of the United State flag.
All these items have been places in frames and are on sale this week through July 4th. The proceeds of the items sold from the collection will go to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project, a charity that provides aid to wounded military service members.
Antèks is located as 1135 Dragon Street in Dallas’ Design District.
