Antiques Anyone?

My husband and I recently had the chance to stay in a cabin in the mountains.  While we were there, we decided to venture into town.  What we discovered were a plethora of antique shops!

We spent the next few hours carefully looking for treasures amongst the stuff.  It was so much fun!  We had a budget and an idea of what we were looking for.

My eyes were focused on finding the perfect tea cup (something I already collect). At the end of our shopping excursion, I ended up with three beauties and all within our budget! Wooohooo! I did have to turn away one amazing tea cup because of the high price. But after finding three others I loved, there were no regrets.

My husband and I don't go antiquing very often, so this was a fun change from the norm. You would be surprised at the exciting "finds" hidden within some of these shops.

My date idea is this: Spend some time either visiting a local antique shop, or going to yard sales together. Be sure to set your budget ahead of time (I even resort to only carrying cash).
