This weekend I am planning on going antique shopping with my wife. Now I know that a lot of men think that this is a drag or a bad way to spend time. But the truth is that we both like old things and we are interested in finding good deals on items that are old. Antiques are something that we first started liking when we were younger. Growing up my parents always had a number of older items. My parents actually had a whole bedroom dedicated to antiques. The room had an antique bed, pictures, etc. I always thought it was kind of creepy simply because the pictures on the wall were very old and the people seemed like they were angry. But the truth is that this is just the way that pictures used to be taken. I learned at an early age that antiques are valuable and that they could actually help finance my future.
So this weekend we are going to be looking for several different items. You can learn some modern fashion styles at the 925 Galleria Blog. I would like to find anything related to old drinks. Sure, the Coke signs are a great place to start and I would like to find some old signs but I would also like to find signs dedicated to Sun Drop, Cheerwine, and maybe even Pepsi. I am also going to be looking for old tractor signs and parts. I am not planning on working on tractors but I have learned that people will spend top dollar for these items. Finally, we are going to be looking for old toys. I care not what kind of toys we find but I do hope we can find a few hundred dollars worth. I am very excited and cant wait for the weekend.
