DOWN MEMORABILIA LANE. Antiquing goes high tech at Atlantique City Spring Festival (March 18-20), billed as the world's largest indoor antiques show. Navigate the 10 1/2 acres with a printout from the Computographic Locator System and go straight to the booth offering the Betty Boop tchotchkes, samurai swords, "tobaccoiana" or your favorite space sucker. Experts like Ray Mansfield of NBC's "Let's Talk Antiques" offer appraisals gratis, and there's free furniture delivery within 200 miles if you can't fit that gotta-have-it armoire in the back seat.

Friday 1 to 6 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., Sunday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. $10 to $24. About three hours from the Beltway at the Atlantic City Convention Center. 800-526-2724, www.atlantiquecity.com. -- Anne McDonough
