As a chronic shopaholic, I’m in three to five area antique malls every week and the first thought I always have when walking in the font door is: Wow! Look at those great big piles of glass and other breakable stuff. What would happen if there were an earthquake?

So, Star-Telegram reports that, even though I didn’t notice, the area has been “shaken” by more than 30 earthquakes.

Alarmed, I drove to the epicenter, the Azle Antique Mall, expecting to find absolute chaos — knee-deep broken glass. But, instead of helping my friends clean up the mess, several staff members told me that not so much as a teacup had been broken.
