It used to be that antique shops used to be run by a single owner, and filled with strange and beautiful old things.  These days, most are mini-malls full of junk.  Recently we found one of the old-fashioned kind.  It had stained-glass windows propped in one corner, marble-topped end tables, chandeliers with art glass, all kinds of goodies.  Look for A. Gridley Antiques in Bloomington, Illinois.
