Last weekend, my husband and I spent the weekend in Atlanta, along with some of our friends, to attend Scott Antique Market and the Yellow Daisy Festival at Stone Mountain Park.
Scott Antique Market
Here are some pretties I spied at Scott's. There was so much to look at that I had a hard time focusing and getting decent pictures. Nevertheless, here they are.
I was looking for a small table for our foyer and this one with X legs and an antique door for the top caught my eye.
You really never know what you'll find there....like this interesting sculpture of a hand. And by interesting, I mean strange. I also saw a silverware set held in a small cabinet for over $6000, and one guy was proudly selling segregation plaques. From a historical standpoint, they were interesting, but I couldn't for the life of me think why he thought selling those signs was a good idea.
I thought this stand up mirror was gorgeous and my hubby thought it was a good idea to pose while I was trying to get a photo. He's so silly.
Framed antique tin ceiling tiles.
I loved these lamps made from old corbels. Such a cool and useful way to repurpose them.
Yellow Daisy Festival
We actually stayed at the Evergreen Marriott at Stone Mountain. I would highly recommend it! They had a couple of restaurants in the hotel, a beautiful pool area with at least four gas fire pits scattered around it, a full spa, and a shuttle service to take you anywhere in the park. We got to enjoy the laser show one night and then the festival the next day.
I did take quite a bit of photos while at the festival, but I didn't see until we got home that photos weren't allowed in order to protect the artisan's work. So, I'll just keep those to myself for that reason. I will, however, show you what I brought home. Although I found lots of pretty furniture, we just didn't have the room to haul it in our car. We had pre-measured our trunk with the seat folded down to see what exactly we could fit, but didn't find anything we like that would fit. Boo! But, I am happy with what I found.
A family from Ohio had a booth of freshly dried flowers. I love the pussy willow and and the wheat. (I was already on the lookout for wheat for fall decorating, so I snatched them up.)
I got these specialty drink mixes and caramels at the festival. I love having yummy drinks on hand for parties, so I couldn't resist. (It didn't hurt that they had a huge tent set up with tasting stations of all the mixes.) I already used the Coconut Lavender Lemonade at a baby shower yesterday, and it was divine! And I'll use the Caramel Apple Cider at an upcoming fall gathering.
I found this metal yard orb at Scott's. It really is beautiful and I had fully intended to use it in my landscape, but now I'm not sure that I won't keep it inside. So pretty.
I am a huge sucker for letters and numbers! These old sign sign numbers are perfect for holiday decorating. I can't wait to use them at Christmas this year.
This is one of my favorite finds. It's a picture frame made from an antique ceiling tile. I love the rusty patina and the texture on it.
This frame is actually quite large, holding two 8x10 photos. It's made from reclaimed lumber.
This "boo" sign was just the right thing for Halloween. I really don't decorate for Halloween that much at all, but I couldn't pass this up.
So that's it for our Scott's/Yellow Daisy haul, minus what we got for our girls. We had so much fun shopping and looking at all of the antiques and arts and crafts. Have you ever been to the festival or to Scott's? What's your favorite thing about it? Leave me a comment below!
