I personally love antiques. Any kind of antiques from books to knives to furniture, I love the workmanship that went into everything before the manufacturing world took over. I think about who might've made the item, how difficult the work was, and how long it probably took them. I think it's important to hang on to old items because they'll be a wonderous item in the future, to visualize how the past might have looked, and not just by reading it from a book.
I also love good deals on clothing and household items. I could hang out at a flea market all day!!
