Aurora antiques dealer finds joy in helping others find a link to their pastWhen it comes to antiques, Glenn Lynch understands the thrill of the hunt and the rush that comes from finding the perfect item at the perfect time at the perfect price. The owner of Out of the Attic Antiques in Aurora’s Fox Valley Center, he enjoys watching his customers search through decades worth of bottle caps, books, posters, pocket knives and toys that line his shop’s walls. And, the truth is, he enjoys being on the other end of the game, too, prowling yard sales, estate sales and auctions to find items that tickle his collector’s fancy.Last Updated Mar 28, 2015 12:00 AM
