Scott Antique Market in Atlanta is one of my favorite places to go. Their show is one weekend a month. I have gone a couple times a year over the past ten years or so and attended the December event. Before I started blogging, I did not think about taking photos. I am seeking Swedish antiques mostly but keep an open mind to just find anything beautiful in accessories, natural coral, table silver or china. This is a large show, so there is just so much to see and takes a full day if you walk up and down the aisles fast with just a glance inside seller's booths. I think their website says it is 336,000 square feet but that must include both buildings. When I need to visit Atlanta or a nearby city, I try to plan my trip on the week of this antique show. http://www.scottantiquemarket.com/
Here are some photos of some of the beautiful things that caught my eye. People buy at the November show for Christmas so inventory was not as high as I have seen it in the past. I have listed the dealer's name where I have that information. Email me if you would like their contact data.
Benton Hayden & Associates of Atlanta. Window and door frames are still very popular as backdrops for other accessories.
A close up of her booth.
This lovely candelabra is from Arcing Sky Gallery Art & Antiques as well as the following hurricanes, candelabra and painting. The paintings were very stunning.
This pillow is created by Joan Garrett of Atlanta. She has hundreds of high end designer fabric decorative pillows that she makes herself. They were outstanding and in every color imaginable.
The designer fabric used in these throw pillows was amazing. I couldn't narrow down a color I wanted to use in the redo of our living room.
Antique European chairs with great character. Note to self - buy every one of these next time.
Lots of white ironstone. It is so loved, I don't think it will ever go out of style.
This is the booth of Antique Sanctuary of Atlanta. Hope Fassett, the owner always has a beautifully styled booth.
Hope had these pretty painted benches.
And the beautiful glass jugs in greens and blue/greens.
I just love light painted woods. This large scale bench was wonderful.
Hope has a lot of things that touch my heartstrings.
Need some silverplate? Here are just a few patterns to choose from. You can have a lot of fun looking through this pile. I believe this is Gulf Coast Silver from League City, Texas.
Moving along to another booth, this is Illuminati Antiques of Atlanta. Their booth sells out quickly, so come early on the first day of the show.
Pretty sconces. They also had beautiful demijohn jugs in green tones of the glass.
Wine jugs are still going strong. It is a trend that could stay awhile.
Illuminati also carries many nice mirrors.
Here we are at the booth of Nostalgia Fine Art from Douglasville, Georgia. They have an enormous supply of framed and unframed prints of pages taken from antique books.
Moving along to another pretty vignette.
Lots of pretty Majolica.
If you love blue and white, this dealer from Dearborn, Michigan has a lot to choose from.
Does your heart speak French?
This pretty 1870 stepback gray cupboard is from the Hunt's Antiques who specialize in cupboards. They are from Monticello,Georgia.
Christy Hickey's booth looked like it belonged on the cover of Country Living magazine. This unusual display is composed of cotton yarn spools from the old Atlantic Cotton Mill in Macon, Georgia.
Here you see spools of gold thread on the right.
Christy is a fun talented gal with a great styling eye.
David Herndon Antiques of Atlanta deals in English porcelains, paintings and Black Forest wood carvings of exquisite quality. Some of the china I have shown in my tablescaping posts was purchased from David.
Oil paintings of dogs and other animals remain in constant demand. David Herndon has a nice selection here.
You know how much I love painted furniture. This is a stunning piece that would be the focal point of any room.
This Italian painted chest from Butte's Antiques of Thomasville, NC is 2die4.
Isn't this fabulous!
Diane Dunn's shop White Rose Linens has a fabulous selection of vintage laces and linens.
Lovely oil painting in another booth.
Another fabulous look.
I've had a long standing dream of furnishing an entire house by selecting items from all the booths at Scott Market. There are so many wonderful things to choose from including lighting, carpets and art in two huge expo buildings. All the photos in this post are from the North Building. You can purchase high and low here as pricing is all over the map.
More eye candy.
More light painted wood pieces that are loved by so many.
Very sweet oil painting.
Imported wood lamp bases for the look that is so popular now.
Beautiful sconces. The dealer was not in their booth, so I don't know the name.
It takes me a full day to see the hundreds of dealers at Scott. There are several restaurants and food booths so you can stay all day.
This is the North Building which has the high end antiques. There are many estate jewelry and sterling dealers that I haven't mentioned. Literally millions of dollars of inventory. There are also booths outside and in tents in the parking lot. So much to see.
I will show you more in my next post of a shell art dealer.
All the best,
