Shopping at Scott Antique Market

The next time you want to go shopping for something interesting and special, think about making the trip to Atlanta to Scott Antique Market. They have been open for 25 years, and are known as one of America's favorite antique markets. Be prepared, it's a little overwhelming! There's all sorts of original artwork on display for sale.

From their website:

We host the World's Largest Indoor Antique Shows the second weekend of every month at the Atlanta Exposition Center in Atlanta, Georgia and also a giant antique show at the Ohio Expo Center in Columbus, Ohio, November thru March. The shows are accurately billed as "A Treasure Hunter's Paradise!
Chair The market has even been featured in a Southern Living article. They suggest going early, starting outside, shopping both the south and north buildings for a variety, and eating the chicken salad when you're tired and ready for a break!

In the south building, there's a junk man with all sorts of pieces and parts. I love to just go and look at all the ideas that I can borrow in my design business.  Here you can see some refrigerator magnets made from old typewriter keys: Magnets from typewriter keys

And some old box springs just ready for someone creative to transform it into a work of art!

I love getting lost in the market. You can easily spend most of your day just exploring, if you love to shop. There's such an eclectic variety of antiques and collectibles to be had. No matter what your personal style, you're sure to see something you absolutely love if you go to Scott Antique Market!
