Best antique store (2000)
Snider Plaza Antiques
This store has a lovely selection of European and American antiques and collectibles. In addition to all the cool loot that your mother would love, it also offers antique hunting tours to Italy that provide the unique opportunity to stay at the palace of an authentic Italian count. It's definitely not your economy tour of Europe, but the price is surprisingly reasonable. For old, affordable stuff with that "antique" look (as opposed to "cheap"), check it out.
