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.
