Cracked the Code

Can’t shake the idea that antique stores are just a retail version of your grandmother’s attic? Uncommon Objects has cracked the code for taking antique shops from clutter shacks to cool: Everything on the floor, and the walls, and dangling from the ceiling, is tempting, whether it’s undeniably hip or just undeniably fascinating. (Stuffed rattlesnake, anyone?)
