I came across this article and it puts me in a pleasant state of being:
Go Antiquing and Improve Your Mood
… like I need an excuse to go antiquing! I go whenever I can, whether it’s antique malls or mom & pop shops, flea markets or auctions, I love the hunt for vintage treasures. I think auctions are my favorite … that’s about as competitive as I get. My auto repair shop/dealership is right next to a wonderful antique mall, so I’m never late scheduling my oil changes or regular car maintenance.
But if you need an excuse, click on the link above to read what C. Dianne Zweig, psychotherapist and author, has to say about the benefits of antiquing.
