Time repairs broken hearts, makes wine taste better, and increases the value of a Babe Ruth–autographed DVD copy of Braveheart. Today’s Groupon gets you access to a treasure trove of time-touched gems. For $10, you’ll get two tickets to Washington’s DC’s first-ever Antiques, Art & Jewelry Show. Your tickets are valid for all four days of the show, which takes place at the Washington Convention Center on October 15–18.
Explore an abundance of rare exhibits from more than 100 international antiquarians; unlike monotonous jaunts to the mall, you never know what you’re going to discover. Antique shopping is your chance to gift loved ones with treasures they never knew they wanted. After four days at this antiquapalooza, you could finish all your holiday shopping without stepping foot in a mall or going hunting.
Older goods that may or may not have fascinating histories seem infinitely more thoughtful than most gift ideas. Since an antique has already endured the test of time, you know that it’s higher quality and will likely withstand the rigors of professional football games, military boot camps, and Japanese game shows. Pretend your purchases are family heirlooms and invent exaggerated stories to impress your friends, or feel a sense of pride knowing your gift is one-of-a-kind.
