Scott Antique Market!

If you like Architectural pieces...Scott's is your meca!

This past weekend was the weekend of Scotts' (and I mean that literally, my husband is a Scott too!)  Anyhoo, last Thursday afternoon, I drove the kids up to Spartanburg to see their Grandma and Grandpa, and woke up early,early to make my way to Atlanta on my maiden voyage to Scott Antique Market....ALL BY MYSELF...Bliss I say, shear bliss!

Two Hours and 30 minutes later I pulled in and was overwhelmed by eyecandy!  Every time I turned around I saw something else that I wanted!  I figured I would start outside, b/c at 10:00 it was already 90 degrees....nothing like sweating and shopping. 

I pulled my camera out and started snapping photos immediately, but (some lady stopped me and said "Are you aLOUD to take pictures?", "Um, yes, I think so" I replied... totally bursting my bubble for a sec (I mean it was like being a kid caught with my hand in the candy jar, even though I had just been told I could get some candy!)  So, I didn't take as many photos, as I had planned because that stupid lady kept popping up in my head, like I was doing something wrong....excuses, I know, but I really DONT like getting in trouble.

Without further, adieu, here are the photos that I took.

Architectural Salvaged Lamps, and tables, oh my!

I thought these little triangular pieces would make great pendants

There were 2 of these....and the LIGHT up inside! 

Thought these lamps were quirky and cool.

This table was GORGEOUS!  This table was bleached!  A trend???  I was seeing a lot of it.(maybe I am just late to the party, but I am loving the way the bleaching turns the wood.)

a close up, aren't the details beautiful?

Had to take a photo, because these chairs are just like some I just sold from my booth, done by my friend Sandy.

Fun what people do with junk...having a cycling collector husband...I think maybe he could put some of his bike parts to good use!

Inside the building
(and my reflection, I was chatting away on the phone!)

outside the building.

Both are awesome metal curio cabinets.  LOVE!

A trip down memory lane....I grew up with a sofa that was slipcovered in this fabric....the guy had 2 of them!

I thought these little lamps were such a good idea...pretty too.

To top off the whole trip, I met Design Blogger Extraordinaire, the one and only Sherry Hart from Design Indulgence.  And wouldn't you know she was over in the pillow section...she always picks out the most gorgeous pillows, and features them on her blog.   If you haven't checked out her must!  Oh, and she is an AMAZING designer to boot.  I have a feeling we could have chatted design all day, but, alas... there was shopping and gazing to do, I only had a few hours to pack it all in....and boy did I.  WHEW!

Will show my finds tomorrow.

Have a great day ya'll.

That's the kind of place if you start shopping you never stop!! what a treat to drive sneak off for the day!!I can't wait to hit some Swedish vintage places while here.


So funny that we both started with the same picture! I am so glad you enjoyed it and maybe next time we can at least have lunch or coffee. Enjoy your time at the beach!
