Shopping Scott Antique Market

Last week I did something I have been wanting to do for years. I drove over to Jonesboro, Georgia and spent the day exploring the Scott Antique Market. Now I have friends and family that go on a regular basis but I just never made time to go myself. Now that I've been, I have to say that I want to go back again and again. The Scott Antique Market takes place the second weekend of every … [Read more...]

New Display Space for My Booth

Last month I was walking through Ben's, the antique store where I have my booths when I saw some really awesome items in a friend's booth. It was two older display cabinets. I immediately inspected them but couldn't bring myself to buy them. I finally did buy them both,  about a week apart. Both of these pieces came from an old hardware store in Powder Springs, Georgia. They are both hand-made … [Read more...]

The Hwy 31W Treasure Hunt – Shopping in Kentucky and Tennessee

Last weekend we decided to try a new highway yard sale, the Hwy 31W Treasure Hunt. This sale takes place every year during the second weekend of September. It is a 150 mile yard sale that goes from Nashville, Tennessee to Louisville, Kentucky. We started in Nashville and made it to Horse Cave, Kentucky. The best sales were definitely in Kentucky. We actually didn't find that many in Tennessee. … [Read more...]

China Finds in June

I shopped several yard sales close to home this past weekend and was happy to find several really nice sets of china. I have collected china for years and have gotten to the point where I am very selective about the china  I buy for myself (mainly because I don't have enough room to add much more LOL). I have been selling a good bit of china in my booth recently so most of my purchases will go … [Read more...]

Vintage Picnic Baskets and a Coffee Warmer

I only made it to one yard sale last weekend because my daughter was home sick for a couple of days (she's much better now.). The yard sale was hosted by a fellow antique dealer from my store along with another antique dealer friend of hers so they had lots of good things for sale. I got a couple of nice old picnic baskets. This one is definitely the oldest. I also got this pretty green … [Read more...]

Pyrex, China, and a Model Plane

I added quite a few new items to my booth in the past week. I am trying to get in the habit of taking things straight to the store rather than bringing them home.  My garage is so full right now. I went to an awesome neighborhood yard sale last week. One of my fellow booth owners is closing her booth this month and she was clearing out much of her stock that she had been keeping at home.  There … [Read more...]

Neighborhood Yard Sale Finds

Last week I mentioned that I was looking forward to a local, semi-annual neighborhood yard sale. Normally there are at least sixty or seventy homes participating. Unfortunately, there weren't nearly as many homes participating this year but I was still able to find a few good deals. I found this pretty little pitcher. I also got these silk flowers. I got five sets of the flowers and used … [Read more...]

Church Rummage Sale

One of the many events I look forward to each year is our church's annual rummage sale. I always find so many  interesting things at the sale and this year was no different.  Another bonus is that they use the money they raise to help fund a variety of mission projects. I also visited a couple of other sales while I was out last Friday. I am so glad that itt is finally yard sale season … [Read more...]

Antique Booth: January Sales

While January is typically a slow time of year for most antique booth dealers, this January was actually the best month I have had since opening my booth over a year-and-a-half ago. As I mentioned in my last post,  I opened a new booth at Ben's Furniture and Antiques in Douglasville, Georgia during the middle of January. It is more expensive than my other booth but it is in a great location in … [Read more...]

A New Antique Booth and a Change of Direction

It is hard to believe that it has been almost a year since I have posted anything on my blog. A lot has happened in the past year and I have decided to change the focus of this blog. My original focus was on home decorating and DIY, and while I will still do some posts on those topics, I want to focus now on what has been occupying much of my time lately. About a year and a half ago, I opened an … [Read more...]
