Lucy’s Visit to Scott’s Antique Market

by Lucy Farmer July 15, 2014

Where are you on the 2nd weekend of each month? If you are within driving distance, you should be at Scott’s Antique Market in Atlanta! I usually make it from Birmingham 4 or 5 times a year. I recruited a friend to go with me over the weekend and we found a few treasures! 

We did stop in at the Atlanta America’s Mart on Thursday to hit a couple of my favorite jewelry suppliers and see a few friends that I don’t get to see often. Lucky for us, the Haven Blogging Conference was the same weekend and we decided to stay at that hotel so we could play with those friends, too! It was a full trifecta!!

Most of the showrooms from the Mart won’t let you take photos, so there’s nothing to show from there. I know. Sad face. I will take a few pics of what I bought to tease you with what I will be creating Lucy’s Lockets with in the next few weeks and do a little post! 

We made our way to Scott’s early Friday morning and found lots of fun things that all of us junkers love so much!! 

Crates are very popular and have been for the past few years. We’ve been using them for many reasons! I love to find them with bright advertising, but these two have special meaning and that gives me a MUCH BETTER reason to buy them! Starr happens to be Ashlee Moore’s middle name and my husband’s initials are RC! Rock on! These two were mine after haggling with Brian in one of the outdoor booths. He had many crates and I’m a little disappointed that I didn’t buy more! ugh. 

We got stuck inside the “outside” building because of rain. Downpours of rain!! It’s not a very big building and I had scoured every bucket for chain and vintage hardware. There was nothing else to buy! We were getting a little goofy, but how cute does Ashlee look ready to play croquet!!

Vintage advertising signs are everywhere in the outdoor lot at Scott’s. I loved the colors on this one and those prices! You will see replicas in lots of booths, but there are plenty of originals and sometimes, just sometimes, you will get a good deal on one!

Is this the back door? I’m with the Hippies! 

This is how we do it. This is how we do it. It’s Friday night….oh wait. Always a song lyric in my head. This is how Joel and I do it. I give him a huge pile of goodies and he separates them into smaller piles by price. Then, we add it all up, take out one or two and throw in a few more, he gives me a price, I tell him how much I’ll pay and we meet in the middle. I was born to do this y’all. I LOVE to negotiate!!

So, next time you want to go to Atlanta for the weekend, make sure it’s the second weekend! You want to spend a day roaming inside and out. Did I mention there are two different buildings? One on each side of I-285. It’s really hard for me to make both buildings. I always go to the one with the most outdoor booths. They seem to have better prices, but if it rains, they all cover up their tables with tarps and don’t always come back in time for shopping! I found an RC crate under a table that said, ” Me and my RC.” Hello. that would have been stacked right on top of those other two finds!! 

If you are dying that you missed this one and there is a whole ‘nother month before the next one…..There is another antique market on the third weekend of each month, the Lakewood 400 Antiques Market. I’ve never been, but can’t wait to get there soon!

Let's get real for a second. This is not an easy time of the year for Seniors. You've grown up together since you were 5 and quite possibly are still attached at the hip. But now, you've both grown into your own person. At 5 years old you wore matching EVERYTHING from socks to swimsuits, now you are more mature and have different interests. Of course, you still share socks and swimsuits, let's not get crazy! But, it's time to figure out who you want to be when you grow up.....read more....

It's funny really. They come to the front door and walk into my open concept living area that's full of light and just kind of take in all the architectural accents that are in and about the room. Then I escort them downstairs.
