Do You Feel Better When You Are Out Antiquing?
We have all heard of retail therapy when you feel better shopping. I feel better antiquing. Don't get me wrong, I can always use a whopper dose of shopping, but for me the best medicine is not found in a clothing store but in a junk shop or outrageoulsy large and stuffed antique center with 100-200 dealers.
Multi-Dealer Antique Centers
Multi-dealer Antique Malls are heaven for me. When I step into the door of these antique palaces, I get lost in my hunt and all the crazy preoccupations I had before entering this zone seem to melt away. My thoughts shift to looking for Mid-Century pottery or another attractive set of 1950s kitchen canisters or a colorful tablecloth without stains.
