A stroll through Old Towne Orange feels like a tour of the movie set for "Back to the Future." The cluster of historic buildings and quaint storefronts is home to what the district bills as "the antique capital of California." The stores — some better than others — offer antiques and other items, including architectural salvage items (like a vintage Lucite and steel banister by L.A. architect Paul Williams), early American furniture, vintage records, jewelry and clothing.
