    What's the best kind of treasure?  To me, it's Antiques or Vintage treasures!  And when it comes to Antique Shopping, there's many places and many ways to participate in a real-life treasure hunt!  I love that buying antiques helps us tell a story. Might be our own family's story, or a story we start on our own.  Either way, antiques are an important touchstone to our collective past.

    2020 is certainly The Year of the Road Trip!  And if you and your family live in Dallas, you might be very interested in fun Day Trips from Dallas!  I’m defining a day trip as a destination within 100 miles of Dallas.  So basically, about a 90 minute car ride there, and a 90 minute car ride back to Dallas.  No hotels or overnight stays required!
