It was another great month at Scott Antique Market. I visited last Thursday and while I only had time to shop the south building, I found many treasures.
I started in the outdoor area but I didn’t see much out there this time. There weren’t that many booths set up but I think that may have been because of the expected rain. I know I wouldn’t want to set up for a four day outdoor market if the two middle days were going to be rainy. It is a lot of work to set up a booth and it is often not worth it if you know you will probably get rained out. I spent a few minutes outside and then moved indoors to see what I could find.
There were some nice primitive pieces in the first booth including this Hoosier cabinet and this pie safe with the perforated tin designs on the doors.
I am always attracted to wooden pieces with lots of drawers. You could store so many things in the pieces below.
Look at this gorgeous fireplace screen. The artwork in the center is not my favorite, but I really like bamboo frame. If this were mine, I would consider changing out the artwork.
This booth always has lovely brass pieces from England. They had lots of these horse brass badges. These would look great for anyone who decorates with an equestrian theme.
This was a beautiful antique secretary and it was in very good condition.
My friend Lucy, who is an avid gardener, was immediately attracted to this antique seed cabinet. It would be a a fun piece to have.
Antiques can be quite expensive and they are definitely an investment. It is fun when you find a booth that offers small, affordable collectables. I collect Wade Whimsies, and at only two dollars a piece, I picked out several from this basket to add to my collection.
Last week I saw a cute project on Pinterest using this type of salt cellars. They had made small pincushions out of them. These were only three dollars each.
And there are so many interesting ways to display butter pats. These were also only three dollars each.
Pretty Victorian style pieces.
This Majolica pot was in excellent condition. The colors were vibrant.
Of course I am always drawn to vintage, hand-painted tole trays. These three were very pretty and in excellent condition.
This was a beautiful painting in an equally beautiful frame tucked behind the tole trays.
This was a pretty vintage print matted in a lovely shade of green. I bought one of the tassels from this vendor to attach to the key of one of my antique cabinets.
This was a beautiful china pattern. Check out that huge painting of a mother cat and her kittens in the background. I wonder if this was a custom painting of someone’s pets?
Closeup of the china. Isn’t it beautiful?
Debbie, with Chelsea Manor Home, always has the prettiest booth. Here are a few pictures from her booth. Another pretty tole tray and a Victorian celluloid glove box.
What else did I buy? I purchase several pieces of this blue and white transferware from Debbie. It is such a beautiful pattern and I really like the soft blue color. It was made in France. I plan on hanging it in my dining room. I will share photos when I get everything on the wall.
That’s it for this month’s show. Hopefully next month I will have time to visit both buildings. Did any of you shop at Scott’s this month?
