A few of my family members enjoy collecting antiques. The reason they enjoy doing it is that antiques remind them of the past. For some reason, their lives were better when they were younger. They might also feel sentimental about some older items. I have thought for some time that antiques always have to be old. It turns out that I was wrong. For example, antique bathroom vanities do not have to be many years old. As a matter of fact, they can be new and only look as if they were older. If somebody wanted to have this type of bath vanities, in my opinion he would have to make sure that everything else he has in his bathroom has to be antique as well. Otherwise it is going to look awkward with some items being modern and some items being antique. I have never met anybody doing anything like it.
