Whether you are a novice or a regular, shopping for antiques can be overwhelming. Put this gift on your holiday wish list, and you can sit back and let the experts guide you. Perch Home, the beautifully stocked gift and home decor shop in Maplewood, runs guided shopping expeditions to the famed Renninger’s Antique flea market in Amish country. The next trip is scheduled for April 29, 2011.
For $95, you get round-trip transportation on a luxury bus, breakfast, snacks and champagne — and invaluable personal shopping assistance from owner Michele Bessey (who was recently featured in O Magazine). The gift certificate comes in a pretty package accented with an antique pewter spoon.
