Who the hell am I kidding?
I like pretty things, but I don't necessarily create said beautiful things. My one attempt at a DIY project pretty much consisted of me buying stain for our antique vanity and then never doing anything with it. My mom and grandmother, however, now those are two crafty ladies. They came to visit and magically my porch now has Halloween decorations, pumpkins AND beautiful flowers. That sure as hell wouldn't have happened if you'd left me to do it. Lucky for me, their visit also coincided with the one weekend in October the Scott Antique Market was open in Atlanta.
We drove over Saturday morning and spent $5 per person to park all day. Getting around is super easy thanks to buses that loop through the North and South building parking lots. Definitely take the time to make a game plan for the day. Not only are the buildings filled to the brim, but there are also outside sidewalk and courtyard vendors the second you get on property. Arriving pretty early on Saturday, these photos are just a fraction of the cool stuff we saw.
Even the handmade furniture was pretty well priced. And the wide array of vanities, cabinets, side tables and chairs sparked new ideas for future decorating. Who knew I liked worn-wood bathroom vanities with double sinks?
