Get back to basics. I think of antiques when I need a piece of furniture such as a cabinet or table. Sure it's easier to
go to the mall and just purchase what I need, but there is also an additional cost - the cost of stress on the environment.
Buying an antique is recycling a treasure of the past...You not only get the cabinet you want, but you get decorative character,
a conversation piece to show your friends, a piece that will outlast any new piece of furniture made today, and you also saved
one more tree for the birds to sing in...
