flock to somewhere newQuestion of the day,

What is your favourite antique shop?

Whether it’s near or far from me here in Ottawa, Ontario (Canada) I am curious to know where the antique hotspots and little gems are all over the world.

It would be fun to build an amazing database over the next little while (of store names with locations) with your feedback.

Maybe one day I can take a little stroll to your hometown and flock to somewhere new.  Before I leave you with this question I wanted to share a quote I read recently:

The past actually happened but history is only what someone wrote down.
-A. Whitney Brown

After reading it I thought about how I cherish antiques not just because of the physical object put before me but because they represent a moment in time.  These antiques once had a place in someone else’s life. Part of why I glow when I am in an antique shop is because my mind is wandering as I try to imagine how the things I see may of been used in a past life.

My favourite antique shop in Ottawa would have to be The Ottawa Antique Market . Why you ask? There is so much diversity in the store and it houses picture perfect items -those pieces that can stand alone and speak for themselves.

I would love to hear – what is your favourite antique shop?
