My place of employment is located in an area rich with antique and high end consignment shops. I often use a portion or all of my lunch break to wander through displays of pottery, primitive farm tools, vintage advertising, furniture, and any number of other items.
I don’t often make purchases on these trips but occasionally I will find a great deal that I can’t pass up. Mostly it’s therapy.
Because of the obvious time constants on these lunchtime jaunts I always have certain spaces I will search first, usually based on typical contents or past deals. Dealers who have consistently good prices draw the most attention.
There’s no better way to relieve the stress of a hectic work day and occasionally you find something really cool.
