If you’ve ever taken one of my Ghost Walks, you’ll remember Antique Emporium clearly. It’s the last stop on my walk, and it’s the most active. Members of my group have stood gape-mouthed as items in the storefront window began moving of their own accord. A heavy metal lamp began swaying back and forth on one visit. On another, random price tags began twirling around in circles.
The people who work there have experienced even more. From my book Haunted New Harmony:
Paula’s first experience with the ghost was startling. Soon after she first opened the shop, she had an encounter that left her shaking her head.
As she was attempting to close the shop one night, she saw a woman wearing a black dress on the shop’s security camera. The woman crossed an aisle and headed towards the far end of the store.
Paula was eager to close the shop and go home, but she wanted to give the woman time to finish shopping. Henry Means, who was one of her vendors, was in the store, so the two of them chatted for a few minutes.
“Man, I wish she’d hurry up,” she told him.
After several more minutes passed, Henry offered to go back to see if the woman was almost finished. When he got to the back of the store, he discovered that the store was empty. No one was there.
Both of them clearly saw the woman on the camera. Where had she gone?
The two searched the store, even checking the back door and the basement, but the building was empty.
She wasn’t sure what had just happened. Did they have a ghost?
Other stories are abundant. Once, a doll from the front window sailed over the heads of two surprised clerks. Another time, the ghosts tossed a CD from one side of the store to the other in front of two startled customers.
Haunted New Harmony is honored to have the opportunity to investigate this incredible location. We are keeping the investigation small, so tickets will be limited and non-refundable.
The event will take place on Leap Day, Saturday, February 29th from 7 – 9 PM. We will investigate the store itself, as well as the basement below it.
