About 20 years ago, I was introduced to antiquing when visiting New Orleans. Our host took us on a tour of the antique shops along the French Quarter, and there I discovered a whole world of history and wonder.

In general, what I learned was that anything older than 100 years is considered antique. Vintage items are between 50 and 99 years old, and anything less than 50 years old is a collectible.

El Paso, too, is a treasure trove of vintage and antiques where you can find anything from costume jewelry to fashion, and even oddities from wet specimens to taxidermy, to things you never knew existed like the skeletal remains of a conjoined twin.
