any people seem to think the only place to find a great selection of antiques around here is in the countryside. They haven’t visited the Cambridge Antique Market, a five-story maze of furniture, clothing, memorabilia, tools, kitchenware, and more, from more than 150 dealers. And there’s a surprise in the basement: refurbished vintage bicycles for sale, dating as far back as the 1920s, from classic Huffy road bikes to Schwinn cruisers, tuned up and ready to go. You’ll also find rare Red Sox memorabilia, including original bricks from Fenway and authentic seat slats. Arpie
