Antiquing on the Road to Atlanta

A beautiful flour sack towel

A collection of rustic serve ware for our European Kitchen section in the store

Love this small square cake plate

Vintage French lunch pail

Lovely silver serving tray for meat and vegetables

Love the details on the sides and handles

Interesting view of Roman life- a print from 1904.

Gorgeous dark grey silk velvet and vintage trims and tapestry pillows.

Notice the detail of the inlaid French metallic tape from the 1800's

Unusual color of transferware

beautiful metal statues of two women

Set of black and brass boxes on tray

Clever assembly of old lamp parts and trays- great for entertaining.  Found in Indiana - good thing to copy!

Intricate bread baskets - set of 4

Vintage large gold urn - hard to find!

Large old zinc planter in unusual shape with cherub reliefs  - can't wait to fill it with ferns and moss!

During the summer,  we drive to the gift show in Atlanta and always enjoy antiquing  along the way.  And while in Atlanta, the Scott's Antique Market is held on the weekend.  While Scott's usually reveals the best antiques, they are very expensive for re-sale, so this year we did not purchase many things at that show.  However,  Kentucky and Indiana produced some lovely finds for us at much better prices.  Above are just a few of my favorites.
