today lara from the always full of eye candy, piewacket, is taking y’all on a sublime southern flea market journey.

Scott Antiques Market, a once monthly event in Atlanta is a massive indoor/outdoor flea market that draws dealers and shoppers from all over the southeast and then some. John Collier brought his bull and  a collection of custom  furniture made from reclaimed materials, all the way from Altoona, Pennsylvania. No bull!

I found some great vintage kitchen ware from dealer Pat Smith who sells out of Sweeties Flea Market in Hampton, Georgia.

Dorothy Loud a 76 year old dealer from. Florida specializes in high end vintage jewelry, clothing, accessories and in being fabulous. Her booth also includes an impressive collection of vintage Judith Leiber bags.

Urban Artifacts, an Atlanta based dealer sells unique pieces like these chairs, reinvented in purple snakeskin. They also carry plenty of untouched mid century loot.

A fantastic lucite purse covered with shells and a portrait by Margaret F. Brown sold by South Carolina based dealer, Images of the Past.

A vintage flour sifter on the left, these make great planters. Treillage, a dealer out Alabama, salvaged a warehouse full of amazing wood and metal furniture, all in this fantastic green.

The food at Scott is a big part of the fun and they have some of the best of any fleas I have ever attended. I especially love these hot, freshly made donuts. one dozen for just $3.

The market is brimming with great treasure, it can be a bit overwhelming. The good thing is your $5 entry ticket is good all weekend long.

A trio of finds, a tin lasso toy, a set of beautiful knives and stone hands fashioned as door knobs.

Beautiful tins from tea to toffee, these were being sold by “Precious and Few” another local dealer.

I am always a sucker for vintage gadgets, these are from Bantam House Antiques out of Clarkesville, Georgia.

Scott is held in Atlanta, the second weekend of every month, Friday-Sunday. They also have five shows in Columbus, Ohio, the next one is in November.
