Woodstock Market

Last weekend I attended an Atlanta blogger group meeting at the Woodstock Market in Acworth. The Atlanta Area Home/DIY Bloggers group was started by Erin Spain of DIY on the Cheap  and has regular meetings around Atlanta. This month we got to hear from Laura Whitlow with Rethunk Junk and Vickie Byrd with Bob’s Upholstery.

Vickie taught us how to do tufting. The class was a little advanced for me but still interesting.

Laura gave us some great samples of her company’s products but I will give you more details on that in another post once I get a chance to try them out. I already have a piece of furniture that I want to try her stain product on. She very generously gave us enough samples to complete a couple of different projects. I can’t wait try her products and see how my furniture turns out.

The demo she did turned out great and it looked pretty easy.

Here is a peek at Laura’s Rethunk Junk booth. It is actually more than a booth. It takes up the entire back corner of the store. She takes old furniture and makes them over into beautiful custom creations.

She sells her full line of paint products in her booth. She, along with other dealers, offers various classes that are taught in house.

The owners of Woodstock Market, Lisa Welty and Karen Bennett, were very generous to us bloggers too. In addition to hosting the meeting, providing a delicious lunch from their own market cafe and a photoshoot in their photography studio, they gave us each a gift card to spend in the shop.

I love shopping at antique stores but Woodstock Market is actually more than that. While you can definitely find plenty of beautiful antiques, they also sell many hand-crafted items as well. Each dealer has customized their individual booths. This makes the shopping experience so much more interesting. Some items are antique or vintage, some are repurposed, and some are new, handmade pieces of art. This is a great place to find one-of-a-kind pieces for your home.

Once we finished our class and lunch, we got to start shopping.

I think this dealer was having a rooster sale! LOL. My favorite is the green one on the right.

I met the artisit, Nancy, who owns the Cobani Bleu booth. She is a talented upholsterer and collector.

Here is a close up of one of her footstools. So pretty.

Woodstock-Market 27

I found this sign in Beyond the Mossy Tree’s booth. She had lots of interesting and inspirational signs.

Woodstock-Market 23

Clothing and handmade jewelry.

Woodstock-Market 26

Pretty home decor items with a country cottage feel.

Woodstock-Market 29

And no antique store is complete without a booth for the guys with truck and beer signs.

Woodstock Market also hosts craft days and junk days on different weekends throughout the year. I am excited about attending the next junk day (which is tomorrow). I will be sure to take lots of pictures and write about it soon. Check their website for dates and details on upcoming craft and junk days.

Wondering what I bought? Here are a few pictures of my finds.

I just love this antique ironing board with birds painted on it. I am still trying to decide where I want to hang it.

More mice to add to my daughter’s mouse collection.

And a cat figurine to add to my other daughter’s cat collection.

Thanks Lisa and Karen for hosting our blogger group. We had a great time and I am looking forward to shopping in your store again.
