Atlanta Market

Usually on Saturday mornings, we scavenge yard sales and estate sales in our area, but this past Saturday was the second Saturday of the month... which means one thing: Scott's Antique Market in Atlanta!

We had never been, and- whoa- were we overwhelmed.  I tried to take a few pictures of the hall itself because it felt like it went on forever...



There was also an equally large outdoor space full of vendors.  Did I mention there was an entire other building we didn't even venture to? 

We were particularly intrigued with the trailer-full of antique dough bowls...


There were dozens!

And aisles of antique prints...


I got distracted by a vendor selling old apothecary items...



(I don't know about you, but I'd rather not take arsenic on a daily basis... or ever.)

After three hours, we were spent.  We came home with several dough bowls, a dresser from the 1840s (in great condition), some ironstone, and some botanical prints- all for the booth.  We also bought some powdered milk paint and historically accurate furniture hardware for some pieces we're working on.

 The prices were reasonable, especially if you are buying for your own home.  As a picker, I had to do some negotiating (and say no to a lot of items) to make the potential profits work for ABH.  

We'll hopefully make another trip in a month or two because it was definitely worth the haul!
