From Dorothy R., Virginia
I had an old friend who gave me old gifts. They were very old objects that would be classified as antiques. In fact, she shopped in antique stores and antique malls for many of the beautiful things she gave to family and friends. Now there are reminders all over my house of a friend who put extra thought into her gifts to me. Sadly, we have lost Viola, but here are some of the items that still remind me of my friend:
- A beautiful scalloped edged platter I use to serve cookies.
- An art deco bowl that makes bananas seem brighter and yellower.
- A lacy edged vase to arrange short stemmed flowers into elegant arrangements.
So my Smart Shoppers’ Secret Tip is this:
If you are looking for something truly unique for you or yours, think “antique.”
