A $1,000 shopping spree and four ways to spend it

Starting today, Antique Row -- Denver's musty-chic stretch of commerce along South Broadway -- is celebrating the end of road construction with its Better Broadway Bash, a weekend of free appraisals, sidewalk sales and random entertainment (stilt walkers? Yes, please.). Today and tomorrow, you can pick up free raffle tickets that enter you into a drawing for a $1,000 Antique Row shopping spree (you must be present at 4 p.m. Saturday at Antique Exchange, 1500 South Broadway, to win). Which got us thinking about all the timeless treasures one could score for a Grover Cleveland. Get our favorites after the jump. 04. Set of Six Vintage Carpet Bowls: $75 Because who doesn't love a good game of carpet bowling? 03. The Military Occupation of the Coal Strike Zone of Colorado by the Colorado National Guard, 1913-1914: $375 Hey Colorado National Guard: GET OFF MY LAWN! 02. Bronze Ox Sculpture: $325 Nothing screams sophistication quite like, "Hey, wanna see my bronze ox?" 01. Anything from Trunk Full of Treasures, 1539 South Broadway Because visiting this web site is kinda like getting RickRoll'D. Hey Wayne Halbritter: GET OFF MY WEB PAGE!
