Are Antique Stores History?

Every Thursday, my Mom, my sister and I go out to breakfast, and then we go antiquing. Yesterday, we went to one of our favorite stores, and alot of the booths had 50% off. Now normally this would be something to get excited about. Ok, I was excited until I noticed that there were alot of empty booths as well. I keep hearing that Ebay is killing the antique stores, and I'm starting to believe it. Nevertheless, I got all of this for $17, so I left feeling pretty good. The picnic basket is an addition to a newly-started and already out of control collection. It's not my usual taste as far as color, but for the price and extra storage, I couldn't pass it up. The tray is so pretty, and the pottery is McCoy. $6 for the pair! WOW! I hope you all have a great weekend, and good luck if you are going to be out there looking for treasures, like me!
