While it didn’t feel like there were as many vendors as usual at Scott Antique Market, there were still lots of great antiques to be found this month. The outside vendors have really struggled this year with the weather and once again had to deal with lots of rain.
I think a lot of the outside vendors decided to listen to the weather report and just stay home. Not a lot of them were set up and I don’t blame them. Thursday started out with a lot of rain, and it rained off and on throughout the weekend. At least they had most of Friday to try and sell.
I didn’t get any photos outside but here are photos from the south and north buildings.
A beautiful pair of antique chairs with needlepoint seats and backs.
Colorful antique glassware. I like when they have easy-to-read price tags.
There were some great sales this month. Some of the dealers had just returned from overseas buying trips and were ready to clear out existing inventory this month so they will have room for there latest treasures in their booths next month. I saw booths with 50 percent off signs and even one with a 75 percent off sign. These next few items were marked 50 percent off.
A Black Forest lamp.
Some pretty fox decor.
I don’t really care for taxidermy at all but I thought this fox was beautiful. He would have been even prettier if he was still alive.
This was a beautiful display piece.
This piece came from an estate in Charleston. What a unique way to store your silverware. It was in excellent condition.
This Staffordshire piece was so pretty but it had some major repairs made to it. I was surprised that it was still quite expensive. The dealer did disclose the repair work on the tag. You really have to pay attention to what you are buying. It is easy to get caught up in the excitement of the find and not notice damage until after you purchase your item. Go ahead and pull out your reading glasses, loupe, magnifying glass or whatever it takes to look at items more closely. Remember, most items cannot be returned in this kind of shopping environment.
This very large, very well-made framed needlepoint piece was $265. Imagine the amount of time it must have taken to make this it.
You can’t tell from the photo but this was actually a very large bowl. It was $565.
An antique French oil painting. It was originally $375 but was in one of the half price booths.
This painting was also in the half price booth.
There is always lots of beautiful blue and white transferware at Scott’s.
A large collection of clocks.
My friend Anne was shopping with me and she was excited to see this piece. It is a French dough box that was almost identical to one she has in her home. It was $995.
A lovely collection of vintage purses.
A nice pair of elegant plant stands. They were $495 for the pair.
Those are the highlights of what I saw this month. I will share what I purchased soon.
