Flashback Funtiques is a unique shop on Boerne’s Main Street featuring eclectic antiques that are fun - jukeboxes, barber’s chairs, Big Boy statues, pinball machines and other collectibles. Collector Billy Howard owns the store sharing homage to the past. There is something for everyone. How about a fortune teller machine or beer-brand clocks and tin signs? Howard started this lifetime passion when he was in middle school by dumpster diving to find treasures.  Howard has been sharing his funtiques since 2012. He also helps repeat clients build their collections.

Because Flashback Funtiques is a enjoyable place to sit and visit while relaxing with a beverage, we asked Howard for his favorite drink recipe. Enjoy making this drink and drop by the store and think back with nostalgia when you see some of the items on display. Check out their Facebook page.
