Antiques. Whatever your definition (an age of at least 100 years is a defining factor here), they can draw you in. Age undoubtedly gives value to objects. We marvel at how they used to be made and how there are so few remaining. It's no wonder that some of us become so romanced as to spend some serious money on antiques...

Have you ever purchased a pricey antique? Was it an easy decision or was it made with much deliberation? Maybe you've found something incredible for an absolute steal or maybe you saved for years to purchase that one special piece. Either way, tell us! What is the most you've ever spent on an antique?
