I didn’t have as much time to shop as I usually do at Scott Antique Market this month since I had my own booth for the first time. I shopped in the south building for a short time and visited some of the other outdoor booths near mine but I didn’t even make it to the north building.
Having my own booth at Scott’s has definitely given me a new perspective on the whole experience. Since I am now thinking of having an indoor booth this Fall, I found myself looking more closely at how the dealers had their booths set up, how they displayed their merchandise, and even what kinds of tablecloths/covers they were using. There is just so much to think about. I haven’t fully decided whether or not I will have a booth this Fall. I am going to have to really look at what I have to sell and decide if I think that it will work at Scott’s. It is definitely an upscale venue and I want to make sure I have the appropriate quality items if I have a booth there.
Back to what I saw this month. Here are some of the highlights.
My first stop was the Chelsea Manor Home booth. Debbie has the most beautiful items in her booth every month. There were several things I wanted to purchase but I held off for now. Hopefully they will still be there next month.
Look at all of the beautiful items on this shelf. The blue and green floral Italian toleware candle holders were calling my name. Maybe next month if she still has them.
And these gorgeous Italian morning glory wall sconces were my favorite. So beautiful and unique. Debbie told me she had them hanging in her bedroom at one time. Doesn’t that sound so pretty?
Lots to see this month, I just didn’t have much time available.
Beautiful antique needlepoint for $350.
Lots of great art framed and unframed.
Some beautiful crystal glassware.
Up close you could see a pheasant design etched into the glass ($1,200 for the set).
Antique dresser set.
Some beautiful hand-painted tole trays.
Like I said, I didn’t have time to see everything this time. Next week I will share with you what I purchased at Scott’s. It was only a couple of things but I was excited to find and purchase both of them.
