Three Months and Seven Dollars Later

My husband and I collect antiques.  You could say it's our hobby  and we love to browse in shops and purchase what catches our eye.

We have certain shops that we will frequent on a regular basis.  One favorite haunt is in the town near where we keep a summer home.  We open the house from May - October, so for half the year, we will pop in and out of this particular shop fairly regularly to see what they have and what's new.  We've been going to this particular shop for over  seven years, usually on a weekend, so the saleswoman (who is not the owner) knows us and knows we are regular customers.  She'll ask us if we are back for the summer, and ask us as the summer progresses, how our summer is going, etc.

We have bought many items in this shop over the years:  lamps, an antique radio, paintings and prints, silver, wonderful porcelain pieces (porcelain is a particular passion of ours).  In other words, we have purchased quite a bit from this place and have given them a fair chunk of change.

Earlier this year, over Memorial Day Weekend in May, we went in for the first time this year, since the vacation home was finally open for the season.  We saw quite a few items we liked, and ended up spending around roughly $200.

(ETA under cut, since it would take way to long to reply to individual comments.)
