It’s been years since I last went to Scott Antique Market. Even though I know it’s a good spot to go when I am on the hunt for something particular, I haven’t stopped by in a while. All of those long rows can be overwhelming, especially if you are looking for something particular!
- But, when my best friend Beth came down from Kentucky to look for a few things at Scott’s I tagged along, as any best friend would. Of course I managed to find a few things of my own, and I really did walk away with some inspiration. I especially loved the vignettes and attention to detail that some of the booth owners displayed.
I particularly loved the detail put into these two displays. I think a pretty display makes you much more eager to buy.
This booth full of books was absolutely amazing. It felt like you stepped into an antique book store in the middle of a city.
Of course, there is also the scary and the down right ugly!
Beth was on a mission for a pair of chairs, a rug, and a console table. I played the the role of supportive friend, but I also found the perfect pillow for my guest room and a beautiful set of botanicals.
There were so many botanicals to choose from at this vendor, but also throughout Scott’s. Each of these were in the $30-$45 range, which was perfect for my budget. Now I just need to get them framed!
There are a wide range of vendors at Scott’s. I say the majority of objects are things like occasional and dining chairs, chests of drawers and side tables, rugs, lamps, and botanicals and other prints. And, while we didn’t have lunch there, I hear the Greek restaurant on the premises serves delicious salads if you want a quick bite to eat without leaving. The big news is that Scott’s is now open to the public on Thursday! A perfect time to go if you are looking for something really specific or you don’t want to fight any crowds!
Scott’s takes place the second weekend every month. (The next show is October 11-14.)
Friday & Saturday 9-6
