I Finally Have One

3.10.2012

Yesterday was a gorgeous day here in the Atlanta area. Sunny with some clouds on and off and a high of 78. Perfect weather for a day at the Scott Antique show. I was lucky on this trip and found a few of my favorite things including one item that I have been wanting for quite some time.

Look at all these wonderful items. Another gorgeous box to add to my growing collection, more roe deer antlers at a super price, more great vintage leather bound books for only $5 each, and the one piece I have been on the hunt for, the vintage trophy.

The antlers were a good price at $30 each compared to what I have seen them for. I was going to hang them in the sun room, but decided to split them up and hang them in separate places.

If you need vintage leather books at a great price you should visit this vendor at Scott's. He pulls out a bunch of books that may be a little more worn and places them on a table where they are all priced $5. I came home with these four beauties. 

My favorite find though is this wonderful old trophy with its very worn finish.

I hope the person didn't mind third place too much.

The bottom is very worn, but I don't mind one bit.

Great shape.

It stands tall next to my other vintage books.

Perfect in this room.

I will show you where the other items ended up bit by bit.

Have a super weekend and happy hunting!

  2. I too love to shop at Scott's Antique Mkt. I always come home with some treasures...Of course, I miss Lakewood so much, but still can find some "good buys" at Scott's. Love all that you got. My gal pal collects the loving cups and I am the antler collector. I actually bought a set when we traveled to Austria...you got a great deal. Tiffany

  5. Eager to see how the antlers look! I came across some at my father in law's farm and want to use them, just not sure how to integrate them into our decor. Loving your other finds as well :)

  8. Oh Kim,
    your hunt was so successful. I love all the items you found.
    Your deer atlers remind me that I have a wonderful elk atler that is waiting to be woven into a basket.
    I am not weaving much anymore, but sure would love to create that one.
    Love those books too.
    We used to live in Marietta and loved it there. We spent three wonderful years in the great state of Georgia and were so sad to leave.
    There are some great antiques shops to visit and I am jealous of your haunts. Can't wait to see more. Have a wonderful weekend,
    Char

  9. Wonderful finds! At first I thought you might have found a confit pot and I was going to be extremely jealous! Someday I am going to get to Scott's....we can meet and have fun...we might have to go separate ways though..we like the same things...:-)

  21. Great finds, Kim. I'm glad you found your trophy that you had been looking for. I have never been to Scotts, but it's on my list.

  22. Score!!!! We don't have a great Flea near us. I think I may need to make a trip South. :) Have a great weekend! Barb

  23. Kim I've been dying to go to Scott's.. it's on my list for sometime soon! Living in NE doesn't make it very feasible, but I do have a relative in Atlanta, and will just have to coordinate the next time I visit and make sure I can do Scott's at the same time!
    Love your box so much! and the books are to die for.. I'm on a constant hunt for antique books, and have also found some reasonably priced. Now, when I find them for $30 a piece, I pass on and wait for the better prices! They're out there..

  25. Kim, those are terrific finds. Wonderful trophy. I'm happy for you that you found this one. Glad you had a good day. Weather here is cold and wet, not a good day to be out and about. ;-)
    Enjoy the weekend......Sarah

  26. Love the trophy. It fits perfectly with your dog collections. This would have been from a hunting dog field trial, derby class is young dogs, between 1 and 2 years old. Great, great find.

  38. Good morning, Kim! I'm so excited for you! You really hit the jackpot, yesterday!

  39. Kim,
    One of the things I miss most about living in the ATL is Scott's Antique Market. You brought me right back there. We purchased so many fine things. I too love antler trophies, "real" trophies, and vintage leather books. You are right. The bargains are the best. My BFF Dixie Delights still lives near Atlanta, so I can live vicariously at Scott's through y'all....

  40. It looks like you got some great finds, Kim! I love the books! I am always looking at the books now when I go to an antique mall. I haven't seen anything as nice as these though.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Congrats on your finds...Love the trophy...I saw one recently for $150...a "tad" steep, so you really scored on this one..I love the Scott's Antique Market...

    Have a great weekend!

  43. Love the way the trophy looks with the books. 78 degrees...wow! It really is spring there. I think we are going to get up in the 60's later this week!

  44. There's nothing like the feeling of spotting that "one" thing you've been searching for. You scored lots of great things on a beautiful spring day. I can hardly wait for spring to arrive in MN!

  45. That trophy was definitely a score. I love it when I find just what I am looking for.

  49. Oh Kim! I have secretly been looking at throphies. Yours is a beauty. And the year....I have a beautiful silver ice bucket with lid that was given to my great aunt from her high school graduating class in 1925. That was a good year!

  55. Did you find a haul! When we sold my in-laws' house we had a huge sale right at the end. My FIL owned race horses most of his adult life. He had all sorts of trophies that we sold in that sale. Boy do I wish I could go back and do that differently. I wish I would have kept just a few...anyway your trophy is amazing. Glad you finally got one!

  56. Love this series of shots... but I especially like the third shot of the vintage book spines... Will you consider entering it in my 'Weekly Top Shot' meme? We're on Week #21 and I'd love to see you share with me and my readers! Here's this weeks' link: http://www.theviewfromrighthere.com/blog/?p=6603

  57. Hey, Kim, looks like a fun trip to Scotts for you, great things you found. Thanks for stopping by on the St. Simons post, loved reading your comment. What fun it must have been to live there as a child, I can see how memorable that would be. I cannot believe this was my first trip, since I have lived in GA most of my life. It was worth the trip for sure. I had a fun time at Scotts today too, didn't buy anything though.

  58. You did well Kim, I love all of it. enjoy the rest of your weekend

  59. Wow. I would have been tickled pink to find the antlers and the trophy! I, like you, have been looking for a trophy just like yours for years now! Maybe this spring/summer will be my lucky time?
