was A-MAZING!!!  I got up at 4:15 a.m. and Sharon, Teresa and I left for Atlanta at 6:00 a.m.  Got there with no problems at all….parked, walked in…and just looked at each other like….Oh.My.Gosh!!  It was HUGE!!!!!!  And this was just the North building… there is also a South building and tons of vendors outside!  We didn’t even get to the ones outside because (1) it was COLD and WINDY and (2) we ran out of time!  WE looked like deer caught in headlights the WHOLE day!  I think it was obvious that we were “newbies”!

The prices in the North building were HIGH!!  And the one thing that made me nuts is most of the vendors don’t put prices on their wares, so you have to ask how much everything is!  I was raised to think if I have to ask….I can’t afford it!  But I got with it pretty quick!

One item that I “inquired” about was a pair of angel wings…they were small…like maybe the size of my hand wide…had a little hole in between them where they used to be attached to something….an angel perhaps….anyhoo… I picked them up and asked how much they were….the little guy heads towards me and I am reading his lips and he says three hundred and fifty dollars… which I replied….THREE HUNDRED AND FIFTY DOLLARS????  (Yeah, I know…..I was ill prepared….I got better as the day went on, I promise)  He said, they are sterling…..SHUT.UP!  They felt like tin to me but who am I??  I said alrighty then and ever so gently placed them back where I found them….lesson learned…act cool Lou Cinda, act cool….

There were fabulous vendors with fabulous vignettes and I got SO MANY ideas!!!!!  Here are some of the things we saw….



These were porcelain and this woman made them by hand….gorgeous!


These too, even the leaves….hydrangeas!  My favorite!  The details are just unbelievable!  No prices and I did not ask….


love the coral….


Love the old books…



Loved the patina….


Lots of silver….

Torn down and ready for rehab!


I did get to meet the FABULOUS Sherry at Design Indulgence which was so much fun!!  I LOVE her blog and she is a FAN of Scotts so I told her we were coming and she met us there and gave us the lay of the land and she is just so great!!  And funny!

And so pretty!  Thank you Sherry for spending time with us amateurs!


I also met Lulu  of the blog Lulu Redstar!  She is a vendor in the South building.  Her jewelry is exquisite and I wish I had had more time to shop!  I only got to talk to her for just a few minutes as they were getting ready to close the place down!  She is TINY!!  I look like a TANK next to her!   Loved her!


We loved the South building the best I think…we bought more over there….we just had so much to see and so little time!

We will definitely be going back to Scotts, probably in the early Spring so we can shop outside and not freeze!  And I think we may stay overnight so we will have more time….in the meantime I am going to practice my “haggle” skills!  They need work!

We did make purchases and I will post about what I got later!

Kisses :)


  1. I can't wait to see what you got! I am glad you girls had fun!


  2. Hi Lou Cinda..We have Scott's Antique show in Columbus, Ohio different times of the year. I have been going for years and is one of the best! Lots of walking, always wear comfortable shoes! Great photos of you! Can't wait to see what you got!~Hugs, Patti

  3. You need to get that "I don't care either way" attitude about you, Lou Cinda! Come up here, I'll show you how we do it in New York! ; ) Wouldn't that be a great girl's weekend; staying over and taking your time to shop. I love the shape of those stripped down chairs. At least you had fun, right!

  4. Hey Lou Cinda, you really had me laughing about those angel wings. for that price the angel should come with!!! Loved your lazy kitties in the last post. I feel like them...just trying to stay warm.

  5. Sounds like a fabulous day! Nothing better than good friends and good shopping!!
    Have a wonderful weekend.

  6. Oh, you tease, you! Tell us NOW! I want to see what you got!!!

    Loved seeing this, Lou Cinda, and I saw some mighty shiny objects at Scott's. Wooooooweeeee! I love it!

    Thanks for taking us along with you. Loved it!


    Sheila :-)

  7. Wow, so much goodness! Glad you had fun!!

  8. YEEEEEEEE HAWWWWWWW!!! Oooooo girl I just love posts like this where I can get googly eyed from all the eye candy! Those ready to rehab chairs took my breath away! And the hydrangeas in porcelain...gorgeous! And the jardinniere with the coral and starfish....LOVE! What came home with you? Enquiring minds ya know *winks* Vanna

  9. I Love that bureau in the first shot!!

    The porcelain flowers are amazing. We don't have a Scott's Antique show here. Maybe some day I will get to go to looks amazing!

  10. Sounds like a blast!!!! Can't wait to see what you got, and I would have had the same reaction to those wings...WHAT?!?LOL!

  11. It sounds like something you get better at each time you go. Maybe the more reasonable vendors were outside in the cold! Sounds like fun.

  12. This sounds like my kind of place! Too bad we don't have like that near here. Or, if we do I haven't heard of it.

  13. You met Lulu and lived to tell about it? Isn't she funny? Next time you see her, please tell her that I said "hi"! More pics...I want more pics!

    Have you ever been to Red Baron Auctions in Atlanta? He bought some things from me in Warrenton last fall.

    More pics!


  14. Hey Lou Cinda tank.....Hee Haw!!! Love your funny account of the day. I bet those angel wings were down to a mere 300.00 on Sunday!!! Can't wait until you come back in the spring! Why do my eyes look like razor blades? Am I Asian?

  15. L.C.,
    Step away from the wings...and the crazy person selling 'em!
    Hon, don't feel bad...we all look like tanks next to La LuLu!

  16. That is my kind of day! Thanks for including me!

  17. Wow! What gorgeous patina on those urns. Love them and wish I could have a few in my home.

  18. What great photos Lou Cinda! Beautiful treasures everywhere you look. I can't wait to see what you brought home with you. Sounds like a fun day. I'm so jealous! laurie

  19. Can't wait to see what you actually bought!
