If you love weekends spent scouring vintage stores for furniture pieces you can either refurbish or find a place for in your home, but don't love the smells that come with them, you're not alone. Antique stores have a certain smell because, well, the items in them are old. With years of well-worn love and, oftentimes, storage, comes a smell that many want to get rid of.
