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...]

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...]

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...]

A Baby Shower for My Niece

Earlier this month I hosted a baby shower for my sweet niece Hope. She is expecting her first baby, a little boy, and we are all so excited.   Her baby room theme is dinosaurs so I decided to incorporate a few of those into the decor. I ordered some dinosaur cookie cutters from Amazon and made cookies. I put out a few stuffed dinosaurs on the tables as decorations that she had … [Read more...]

Country Living Fair Ticket Giveaway

Last year I attended the Country Living Fair for the first time and had a great time.  There was just so much to see and do (and buy). Fall is the perfect time to visit a fair and this one takes place October 24-26. This year I am excited to be going again and to make it even better, I have two tickets to give away, courtesy of Explore Gwinnett. Some of the highlights from last … [Read more...]

The community has an organic farm, restaurants, Montessori school, and many cultural … [Read more...]

2014 World’s Longest Yard Sale

Earlier this month we headed over to Alabama to check out the World's Longest Yard Sale. I had been wanting to go for the past few years but we always had something going on that weekend. This year it worked with our schedule so we loaded up the van with quilts, boxes, and packing material and started our adventure. I had done some research and knew that while the official sale started on … [Read more...]
