Sure you can go ahead and call Aria an antique shop, but this isn't your grandmother's antique shop--where you need to dig through tons of junk to find treasure. The objects at Aria are all treasures in their own way. Beautiful maps and charts, boxes and jars, wooden carvings and metal light fixtures are sprinkled throughout. If the shop seems distinctly European that's because the owner spends a good bit of time looking for items for his shop in the Old Country.
