Have you ever wondered how experts classify an item as an antique? Generally, an antique is an item that’s over 100 years old. However, what about items that are only 50 years old? Experts maintain that such items are collectibles, rather than antiques. Regardless, if you appreciate history and enjoy learning about the past, you should definitely check out these antique shops in suburban Chicago.
