A field trip to the antique market!

Remember my mention of the to-do list that keeps growing? Well, one of the items at the top of that list is a dining room table. We really want to find a rustic farmhouse style table. There certainly are a lot to choose from at places like Restoration Hardware, Pottery Barn, etc and they are all lovely, but we want to find something with a little bit of individuality. Perhaps an actual antique.

Not too long ago, I took a trip to Scott Antique Market and was blown away. It was my first trip and while I had heard stories of how cool it was, I really wasn’t expecting to be so charmed by the place. It is the world’s largest indoor antique show. It comes to Atlanta once a month and is a mecca for anything and everything you could imagine; antiques, art, pottery, silver, rugs, vintage clothing, collectibles, accessories, jewelry, etc. You could easily wander around the place all day long. I did. And I plan on going back next month. Perhaps I’ll find our dining room table there. I’ll keep you posted for sure.

Here are some random images from my recent trip:

I'm still kicking myself for not buying the orange one...

...proof that you really can find anything and everything!

I loved these refurbished tables!

more along the lines of what we're looking for...

I love these antique desks!

I really liked these free standing cabinets, too. Perfect for a kitchen island!

coolest floor lamps, ever.

 Take a look at all the neat uses for old coffeebean bags!

Market dates are the second weekend of every month. I’m going in June to continue the hunt for our dining room table. Maybe I’ll see you there!
