Monday Favorite: Scott’s Antique Market

I meant to do this post on Friday, but since my computer is falling to pieces, it doesn’t read my SD card. And since I used my point and shoot (whose cord I have lost), I had to wait until I could get Tom to help me out with his computer. Turns out our new printer could have let me access it all that time. Oh well.

Anyway, a few weekends ago, Tom and I went to Scott’s Antique Market in Atlanta. Wow. It’s huge.

It’s basically tons of different antiques dealers with everything from books to furniture to lighting fixtures. Pretty much anything you could want to look for in an antique store, you will find here…times 50. You aren’t short on selection. They come from all over the country, and I was pleased at how really nice they all were without being pushy about their products.

Scott’s is only open on the second weekend of every month. It costs $5 a person to get in Friday through Sunday, but once you pay, your pass is good for the rest of the weekend. You can also pay a little more to get in on Thursdays, one of the dealers told me. That pass is also good for the whole weekend.

Here are some pictures of just a very few of some of my favorite things that I saw there. I am definitely going to have to go back when I have the cash to get some of these things.

Love the style of this table. I feel like I could make one similar to it myself:

I am flipping obsessed with these restored pieces from postal services and old offices. Love them!

These ceiling and wall pieces taken from old buildings and hand-painted by the sellers just made my heart go pitter-patter. There were a lot of them, but this was probably my favorite:

And this old crib was so sweet. I thought it would look awesome in a nursery.

Tom and I didn’t buy any of those things though. We did get something for our living room, and we LOVE it. But I’ll show you that tomorrow!

If you want to go to Scott’s, be sure to bring plenty of cash or your check book, a camera for items you don’t want to forget but can’t get right away, and some way to transport your goods home with you! (Tom and I didn’t plan well for this and ended up getting some help from some of our awesome friends Justin and Jenn, who own a truck. Thanks y’all!)

Scott’s is located at:

Atlanta Expo Center

3650 and 3850 Jonesboro Rd,

Atlanta, GA 30354

Don’t forget, they are only open the second weekend of every month. But you can get the dealers’ information if you want to get in touch with them in between shows.

Happy hunting!

  1. Oh how I miss the incredible Antique Markets of the South (and their amazing prices!). There are several good ones in our area that I’ve found, but since they are so few and far between in the Seattle area, their prices are much higher. The good thing though, is that it keeps me from overbuying and makes “the hunt” that much more fun to find a good deal. 🙂

    1. I didn’t think the prices at Scott’s were low, really, but I thought that what we did buy was a great deal. Of course, we negotiated a bit. But overall, I think people will get better “steals” at stores than at a place this big. There are too many other people who might buy the stuff for them to budge too much, and the prices are pretty steep on some stuff. But still, I found some great stuff, and I love to even just look at it all!

      All the same, Seattle is pretty much the most expensive place to live in the US, so I don’t doubt that the antiques are pricey!

    1. I almost didn’t put these pictures online because I was worried others would snatch up my favorite things! lol

      But, on the other hand, if you want to get it for my house, mommy-dearest…I think it was $795. I have a wall that would love it and a wallet that’s laughing in my face. Feel free to be the remedy!! =)
