In the era of eBay, if you're thinking of something from the past you'd like, you can probably find it online, whether that's crystal owls with rhinestone eyes or Tito Puente albums. However, Copper Country (yes, the place with the buffalo in front) offers the opportunity to find the item you never knew you wanted, but suddenly need in your life once you've seen it. Walking around the tens-of-thousands of square feet at the corner of Speedway and Rosemont is like having an all-access pass to a theme park of nostalgia and while it's free to look, you'll almost certainly find something that has you reaching for your wallet.
