December Visit to Scott's Antique Markets - Atlanta

Outside sign at Scott's Antique Markets
This is the second weekend of the month and an opportunity to visit one of my favorite Atlanta marketplaces - Scott's Antique Market link to website. Today, I was checking out my newly arrived January issue of Architectural Digest and saw an article called "Insider Secrets of the AD100".  These designers discuss travel, inspiration and sources secrets.  One of the designers interviewed, Atlantan Suzanne Kasler, provided the following source secret:
Every time I go to Scott's Antique Markets in Atlanta ... I find unique items: maybe a fabulous wood sphere, great art fabric, or custom-made pillows.  Really anything you can think of."
How timely! My normal companion on these trips (friend Bette) and I, however, were somewhat disappointed in this month's market. The booths were less crowded with wares for sale and less populated with buyers. We discussed this with several vendors who said that this is a low-volume sale month for many vendors and some have just stopped coming. Here we were hoping for a huge holiday extravaganza and opportunities for last minute gift shopping. Nevertheless, it was a beautiful warm day and we enjoyed our visit including the highly-recommended ice cream cones in the Southern building.

Here are some of the red and green items we saw - all would work well in a holiday setting.

One of our favorite South Building vendors - beautiful floral arrangements - a little pricey but one of these days we plan to buy!
I bought five of these hand-made reindeer and added bows. Three of them are proudly displayed in my foyer.  My plan is (was) to give them as holiday dinner favors to my family but I may just keep them!
