Decorables & Antiques
Readers' Choice: Capitol Hill Books
Did you know that Queen Victoria had quite an impressive collection of Chinese snuff boxes? The friendly and resourceful owners of Decorables do, and they'll be happy to tell you all about it as you browse the elegant and eclectic aisles of this airy antiques gallery, which makes its home in a former East Colfax bank. And while Decorables' own display of snuff stuff doesn't quite rival that of the British Empire, the shop's cross-cultural collections -- from marble Buddha statues to Hummel figurines -- are regal in their own right. Unpretentious and accessible, Decorables is a find.
