Tucked well into the back of a strip mall on Overland sits the Antique Mall. From the outside, it looks like a regularly sized store. But a few steps inside and a glance to the right or left provides a view that goes on forever. The place is chock full of tchotchkes on shelves, tables, chairs and boxes (that are also for sale). It's an overwhelmingly large place to navigate, and it's not impossible to get lost. But they have a clever way of helping you to keep your bearings; each aisle is named after a European city or country. You can roam Rome glancing at costume jewelry; travel France in search of a monkey-shaped cookie jar; or glide down Venice and browse through Depression glass.
