Scott's Antique Market in Atlanta

1.19.2017

It had been quite some time since I made a trip to Scott's in Atlanta. It was so beautiful last weekend, especially for January, that I talked Mr. Savvy into going with me.....he never goes. Only thing is when he is with me I feel more rushed, but he wasn't pushing me and we actually were only there a couple of hours. We basically whizzed through both buildings and missed some things I'm sure. The last time I went to Scott's I was with my daughter and when we stopped by the grocery store on the way home I tripped and fell outside on the sidewalk and split my forehead open. Yes, happy times. So now when I think about going to Scott's I remember the fall.

I loved this horse painting and it was already sold. 







If I find a sofa table I like I will replace the one I have now. This was pretty, but at $1800 it was way over what I'll pay.

I really liked this table and it almost came home with me. I think some hemp or linseed oil would really bring out the color on the base.



Wish I had noticed the confit pot to the left when I was there. Funny how I see things I missed when I look at the pictures.

More pots, but I passed them by.

Not real sure what this is, but would be great on a coffee table. There was no one to ask what the price was. The pieces were glued in we think.

Interesting necklaces and some of them had a cow on the medal.



I have a creamer very similar to this one and mine is monogrammed, too. Again no prices and no one to ask. That is one thing that irritates me at Scott's. 

Pretty pair of tole lamps.



I am on the hunt for a large antique hutch for the dining room in place of the one I have that I painted. I would love one open like this, but larger for my ironstone collection.





I was glad my husband was with me because we found these vanities and more in this booth and really are considering this for the master bath reno this spring. These are Restoration Hardware look a likes, but a lot less in price.

We really liked these, but we are just in the beginning stage of looking at possibilities.

I loved the mirrors, too.

There were chandeliers, too in this booth.

I had no idea they had things like this at Scott's that would work in our bathroom so it was meant for Mr. Savvy to be with me this time. He talked with the vendor who lives in Greensboro, NC which is where I'm from. It's a small world.

By the time we got half way through the second building our legs were killing us. Gosh, we are out of shape, but I'm working on that. I was surprised I hurt like that since I've been walking. We must use different muscles to shop. 😊

Only one thing came home with me and I will share it soon.

  1. I always feel rushed when my husband goes shopping with me, but we both enjoy antiquing so it's more relaxing then. Scott's looks like a great place to spend a few hours dreaming! Thanks for sharing!

  2. We definitely put ALL of our muscles to work when shopping....reaching, bending, stooping, repeat. Lots of great things at that Market. There is is a great architectural salvage place in Greensboro, NC I am wondering if it is the same person....Glad you had a great time out with Mr. Savvy.

  3. I hit every shop in Carcassonne in search of a white ceramic stool like the ones here. I didn't find any. They probably will come out in the spring.
    Those lamps are metal? Very pretty.
    The horse sign is terrible though. When I see apostrophe+s on plurals, it's like fingernails screeching on a blackboard. A sign painter should at least check the grammar first.

  4. Kim, so many interesting items...I am with you, it is aggravating to not have merchandise priced! Sounds like a fun day'

  5. Have you considered an antique cabinet for the bathroom vanity? Would be beautiful (or maybe that one is an antique?). We used a gentlemen's chest (vintage) in a guest bath - hubby altered it for a sink/pipes, etc. I'm a lucky gal because he also loves antiques and will sometimes out-shop me!

    1. Yes, I have considered that, but we just happened up on these and the price is really good for the cabinet, sinks and top.

  7. WOW! I think I would've had a serious problem trying to leave that store! So much "eye candy", and not enough funds...lol! Great pics, Kim, thanks for sharing!

  8. I'm sorry I missed Scott's this month, I just didn't realize it was the second weekend. That piece with all the wooden rounded pegs sticking up is a balloon mold. They come from India I believe.

  9. Some day I am going to spend the night down there and go to Scott's! I saw many things I like in your pictures.

  10. I like these posts from Scott's or any antique store you visit. Very informative and I love your opinion on whether a price is too high or low. Helps to educate me on the proper values. Such pretty stuff. Wouldn't it be nice to have an endless supply of cash to enjoy some of these goodies whenever we feel like it?

  12. They had those balloon molds in the antique section at the Atlanta market and every one of them was already sold.

  14. It's been years since I've gone to Scotts. They have great things there for sure!

  15. I guess it is good that I am not close to any markets like this or I might just be broke:) Those confit pots were beautiful. I would also LOVE an open hutch! Hope you find one you like!

  16. Oooh, I hope the necklace with the cow medal came home with you!

  17. I have not gone in soooooooo long. I must make it a priority. I have purchased some really fabulous china there in the past. There is just so much variety of merchandise. I don't go to the one building with the more flea market stuff. Usually just have time to see the main building. They used to have a lot of pillow dealers, lots of sterling flatware, accessories, china and framed artwork. My husband does go with me and he is pretty good about letting me shop.

  18. I saw a lot of things I liked! Loved those pretty pillows and chandeliers. The vanity you looked at for your bathroom is beautiful too!

  19. Probably a good thing I don't live close to Atlanta - I'd go crazy in Scott's!

  20. The vanities are great, can't wait to see what you choose.
    We just moved from the Atlanta area. I attended undergrad in Greensboro, NC & Greensboro is where I met my hubby.

  23. So many wonderful pieces...I would love a day exploring there...

  24. Looks like a real treasure trove, the trouble I find when there is so much choice and places are so large I tend to get overwhelmed and walk away with nothing, it is almost as if there is just too much choice!

  25. I love the bathroom vanities and can't wait to see the bathroom renovation you're planning!

  26. What a great place Kim. I love the architectural salvage. So beautiful. Glad you had a great trip with Mr. Savvy and stayed upright and off the pavement this time. Gosh that had to have hurt!
    Happy Friday and Happy Weekend.
    xoxo

  27. Kim, I'll be going to Atlanta in March to go to Scott's for the first time. My daughters live in Atlanta and I've been there so many times, but never on the right (2nd) weekend. Can't wait. Will be taking an extra suitcase! Thanks for the tour.

  28. I was going to the Scott's Market in Ohio today but didn't make it. Now that I see all the French Country items I regret not going. You found some really cool items.
