We'd like to clear up a little confusion. An antique is not just something old
from your wardrobe (Madonna gloves, anyone?). No, we're talking about treasures with a timeless je ne sais quoi—and like a fine wine, they only get better with age.
Confused about where to find the best objets d'art around? Don't sweat it, guys: We've done the digging for you.
Ahead, the eight antique shops guaranteed to add a little charm to your home
—and closet. And because we embrace our inner lazy girl, here's a bonus: Some of these emporiums are more like markets than shops. What does that mean for you? A mind-boggling array of amazing goodies from multiple dealers, all under one roof.
Who ever said you can't buy back time was wrong. Our top picks might do just that—and then some.
