Dream Dictionary
 Definition: Dreaming of antiques signifier that you are showing the need to think about your past, your well respected values and traditons. If feelings of happiness are stemming from such a dream, it means that you need to reinforce these values and long acquired notions in your present life. If this dream makes you nervous or sad, it means that you are trying to distance yourself from a bad experience you had in the past.
