  • I do when I am looking for a gift for my mom. Especially when I want to get her something she wouldn't normally buy for herself. She likes blue birds, so anything with those usually goes over well (good quality, not cheap looking). Also it's fun to look over the jewelry although I have never bought any from an antique shop. Old linens are cool as well. I don't really do much shopping like that, I am a minimalist at heart and don't do knick knacks often.

  • We do. But I don't think we've found anything amazing...nothing extremely valuable that we got a good deal on or anything. We mostly go for fun.

  • Yeah, I like to buy old jewelry, and funky things for the house. Right now, we just got new furniture and the sectional has a huge ottoman that goes with it. So, no room for a coffee table. I am looking at antique stores for a really cool, old fashioned serving tray that I can set on the ottoman and use it for a coffee table sometimes...

  • I do. I collect Mexican Folk Dolls a very specific waxed canvas type and my daughter collects miniature glass animals by a specific artist. We are always so happy when we find something. Although don't dismiss Goodwill I found 4 of my dolls for 50 cents each at a Goodwill in Seattle.  But I also buy  old brooches and sometimes something beautiful catches my eye that I just can't live without.

  • Yes, but I am just looking for a few items that I will spend money freely on. I can't reveal those of course....
