Having recently signed a lease for an apartment with one of my best friends, I am on the search for furniture and other odds and ends.  This brings me to antiquing, as it is called.  I must say, this activity will probably be added to my list of hobbies... right up there with photography and shopping because I can do both in one place.  It's so cool to be in one place that is so full of stories.  You see these pieces of furniture that have been passed down through families, old post cards containing actual notes sent to people, and antique cameras that were probably used to capture moments from the 1970s... all being sold in one place.  I love it.  And on top of that, it's one of the best places to people watch.
