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 month, Thursday through Sunday. It fills up both the inside and outside space of the north and south buildings of the Atlanta Exposition Center on either side of I-285  at exit 55 in Jonesboro.

My good friend Tamyra goes almost every month and she recommended that I start my shopping in the south building and then drive over to the north building (they are on different sides of the interstate and one five dollar ticket gets you in for all four days of the market.

Scott’s was an awesome shopping experience. It gives you the opportunity to see antiques and vintage items, both local and from overseas, that you might not see anywhere else around here. From exquisite and high-priced items, to some of the rustiest, crustiest stuff there is. It was a great learning experience. I have had my antique business for a little over two years now and I always enjoy meeting other dealers and seeing what is selling and how things are being displayed.

Here are some photos from my day at Scott’s.

A lady and her sons were there selling beautiful framed and unframed antique prints. Most of them were of birds.

How about some instant ancestors? Some people buy these old oil paintings to hang over their mantels. These two make a lovely couple.

I’ve started collecting tole trays and there were plenty of them available.

These card catalog cabinets were small but in great condition,

Beautiful blue and white transferware. I wanted these platters.

This chair was for sale in Thomas Hoke’s booth. He makes trips to England throughout the year. Charles Faudree was a frequent customer of his. I wanted to buy this gorgeous chair but it was very expensive. It was a beautiful old chair though and quite comfortable.

Another piece from Thomas Hoke.

If you like the look of old, matching books, there were several vendors here with shelves full of old books for sale.

Here are some vintage carved ducks.

Shopping at Scott’s was a great experience. I was there for several hours and still didn’t see everything. I am looking forward to go back next month and seeing what else I can find.

  1. I would love to go to Scott’s someday, Florence! Thanks so much for giving us all at Vintage Charm a taste of the venue and all the goods for sale :)

  2. Kathy, I love Scott’s and had intended to go to the last sale but didn’t make it. I’m looking forward to the Country Living Fair this weekend.
