Have you ever wondered why it feels so good to wander through an antique store and see something the reminds you of a special person or event? It’s that warm and fuzzy feeling we experience when we spot those special items that take us back in time!
Antiques whisper to our hearts. They help us connect to family members that have been gone for years; they spur a memory of a wonderful trip or activity; they remind us of a beloved parent, a favorite aunt or uncle, a grandparent or maybe a dear friend.
Antiques give us an emotional connection to history – a history that we didn’t get to experience, but one we often imagine what living in that era would be like. We wonder where it came from, how it was used, who used it and why it was made.
Antiques inspire admiration. This admiration we feel is often associated to the exquisite workmanship, the beauty, the design, the color and the quality of these beautiful treasures.
Antiques are solid and dependable. They have survived the hands of time. They are meant to last and become family heirlooms. We dream of how we will hand them down to our children and grandchildren.
Whether you’re in it for the hunt, the nostalgia, the stories, the style or just the hope of finding yourself a valuable treasure, continue to let antiques whisper to your heart.
