Every time I visit the local antique shops it becomes an exciting treasure hunt. I scour each and every corner, digging through items of yesteryear, anticipating the moment when I'll discover the perfect little piece of ephemera. And, I usually have the help of the shop owners, who all know me very well, as they bring me piece that know I'll love.
