Scott's Flea Market in Atlanta

I have always.....always.....always....wanted to go to Scott's Flea Market in Atlanta.  It's held the second weekend of the month.  I got to go last month and it was sooo much fun!  There were things that I had hoped I would get to see and yep, they were there.  
But first, before I show you all the fun stuff I got to see, I'll show you what I brought home.

I got this wooden berry tray.  

It's taken me awhile to realize that I really
like trays or items that I can use as a tray.

I enjoy decorating my coffee table.  

So now, on to the other fun items I got to see....
 One vendor had beautiful vintage gain sacks and  dish towels.  The sacks were BEAUTIFUL. 
 The ones I saw were clean--without spots or other soiled areas.  They were soft, too.

   This booth had kitchen items.

I have some Uncle Wiggily china so this book caught my eye.  
These milk crates held the small milk bottles that would have been used for school children.  The dealer had pictures of the dairy where he got the crates and bottles.  They were very dirty and he said they were "farm fresh." My sister-in-law and I bought two dozen bottles for $30--we both already had a crate.  We had hoped to pay a dollar a bottle, but when another guy was selling them (clean) at 4 for $20...we decided to head outside to check out the dirty ones. That was the best deal for sure!

 There were vendors inside and outside.  

The man with the movie posters was very nice. He explained how he preserved the posters.  They were very colorful and in excellent condition.  He had circus posters, too.  
I'd like to see this movie...
Lots of pretty flatware.

      Demijohns         Globe made into a light fixture.

 And baby bath tubs!  I didn't get to price these...no one seemed to be at this booth. 
I missed taking pictures of olive baskets, French laundry baskets, the beautiful vintage linen booth, wooden filing cabinets and the copper kitchen molds. I hope there will soon be another trip that a can share with you!

Beautiful Savannah

I wanted to share a few more pictures from my trip to Savannah.  It is a beautiful city and perfect for walking around and enjoying the lovely architecture, squares and history.

There are many things to see and do in Savannah.  There is Civil War history, the Telfair Museum (it had a visiting exhibit from the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, Italy that was wonderful), the Juliette Gordon Low Home (founder of Girl Scouts), beautiful architecture, art galleries, shopping and yummy food, too!  I hope you'll be able to plan a visit to this beautiful southern city....you'll have a great time!
