Tea, antiques, and pipes

 

continued

You don't need to know what you want. Auck and his staff will take care of that. "We find out why they want to drink tea, and that's the tea we're going to help them find. So if someone wants to lower their blood pressure or cholesterol, we're going to direct them toward black tea. If they want antioxidants, they're going to go toward the white tea. If they want a tea for weight loss, we can help them with that. If they want a tea to boost their immune system, we can help them with that."

Whoa, back up a minute. What was that about weight loss? "Monkey-picked oolong. It boosts your metabolism."

Lucky Haskins Antiques & Oddities opened in the former Such a Find Antiques space in the Lamp Post Plaza March 1, but Lucky had nothing to do with it-there's no such person. Owner Adnan Hourani came up with the name while driving south on I-75 through Ohio after seeing a single exit sign for two different towns: Luckey and Haskins. "It just sounded so cool," says Hourani. "I thought, that's what I'm going to name my shop some day."
